We are already in the middle of winter and my skin is showing definitive signs of dryness, Hyderabad being even more dry. I thought it would be a good time to talk about winter skin care routine. So, let us start.
Winter Skin Care Tip #1 – Take Care of your exfoliation
Winters is all about more of dead and dull skin. It is time to move away from granular or physical scrubs. And, if you are a fan of sugar, I really hope you are not using the granulated one. It is just too harsh for skin. You must get the organic and least processed sugar versions even for consumption or at least powder the one in your kitchen. Or, best, pick up a few sachets of Demerara or brown sugar when you are at a coffee shop.
Another great way to exfoliate your skin is the good old OCM method. Nothing is better than oil to remove your dead skin and it is moisturizing it at the same time. Make sure you have castor oil in the mix as that is one powerful cleansing oil but way too strong to be used alone. Also, exfoliate more frequently to combat dull skin. If you have exfoliation twice a week in your winter skin care routine, make it thrice in 10 days.
Winter Skin Care Tip #2 – Moisturize in the shower or when you are slick wet
This is the season for my body butters and some of them are way too thick to spread easily on dry skin. So, what am I doing? Smoothing it out on literally wet skin. Within the shower is best but then you need to dab a bit with the towel.
