Dry and harsh winter weather can sap moisture from the skin and can make the skin dry, flaky and sometimes sensitive. Here we have provided a complete body care routine to protect you from the chilly weather.
The three most important steps in skin care are: cleansing, toning and moisturizing.
To cleanse the skin use a soap free face wash. Soaps are harsh and can deprive the skin of its natural oils. In case one need to use soap then one must use a glycerine-based soap or a moisturizing face wash. One can also use a cleansing milk or cream.
During winters must not use any toning product that contains alcohol or astringent as this can lead to dryness. To tone the skin, use a skin tonic like rose water or cucumber juice.
Moisturizing is the most important step as during winter the skin needs more moisture and nourishment. Do not wash your face before going out in the cold. In case you do, apply moisturizer before going out.
