5 Ways You Can Take Good Care Of Skin During Winters
Home remedies work the best when it comes to winter and skincare. Because they treat the skin from the inside, unlike skincare products that just add a protective shield to the face.
Here’s a list of all the simple and easy-to-find ingredients that will restore the natural glow of your skin.
Rely On Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is just a magical ingredient for the entire body and not just the skin. It can do everything right from treating constipation to make you glow, add volume to the hair, and more.
Applying coconut oil on the face can also treat the skin irritation caused by the dry and cold wind.
How to use-
- Massage the facial skin regularly with few drops of coconut oil and wash off later with lukewarm water.
- Add some sugar to the coconut oil and use it as an exfoliator to shed off the dead skin cells from the face.
Use The Evergreen Remedy
Aloe vera is an evergreen remedy for improving hair health, skin health, weight loss, digestion, and more. This gel-like plant is natural moisture for the skin that can even reduce wrinkles and acne as well.
So, just scrap the gel using a spoon and drain the yellow liquid as it is harmful. Blend the gel in a mixer or simply rub the gel on the face. For better results, use aloe vera gel with honey or turmeric as a face mask.
Organic and raw honey can improve the skin’s complexion and also prevent the skin from bacterias. It also gives a soft and fresh feel to you. So, simply dab the honey drops(2-3) on the face and massage it well. After 10 minutes you can wash the face.
If you don’t like applying honey alone on the face due to its sticky nature, you can mix it with milk as well.
Treat The Skin With Fruit
Banana is the best fruit among all fruits that can hydrate and nourish the skin. It’s good for those having dry and patchy skin.
How to use-
- Mash one banana and mix with milk, apply like a paste and wash off after 10 minutes with warm water
- Use the mashed banana and rose water remedy if your skin is oily
Milk works as a clarifying agent while banana peels off the dead cells from the skin. Together they restore the lost glow of your skin due to harsh winters.
Another fruit that does well to your skin is papaya that you can use with milk. But use raw papaya pieces as they are more effective than the ripe ones. Cut into cubes, mash and mix with milk. Rub the paste on the skin and even on the neck’s surface.
Let the mask dry and wipe off later.
If you think Multani mitti can leave your skin drier then you are absolutely wrong. But, if you have dry or sensitive skin then fuller’s earth will not do any good to your skin.
It’s good for only oil skin and removes all the impurities, extra sebum(natural oil of the skin) and also treat inflammation.
How to use-
Take one tbsp of orange peel powder, Multani mitti, and sandalwood powder in a bowl. Use this mixture on the skin once a week.
