This is the season of dull and dry skin and chapped lips. Instead of resorting to chemical-laden store-bought creams and lotions, depend on nature to give you healthy and glowing skin.
Your skin can take a thorough beating during winters. The dry, cold air, drop in temperature and smog can rip your skin of natural moisture leaving it lifeless. If you don’t take enough measures, you could end up permanently spoiling the texture of your skin. Dryness could also lead to wrinkles.
But don’t fret and definitely don’t invest in expensive chemical-laden skin products. Take help of nature to get beautiful, healthy skin in winter. Dr Partap Chauhan, Director at Jiva Ayurveda and Megha Sabhlok, Brand Director of Just Herbs share some tips:
Apply anti ageing mask: Hibiscus flower contains natural alpha-hydroxy Acids (AHA) which improves skin elasticity. All you need to do is boil a hibiscus flower in two cups of water until about half a cup remains. Now, add honey and coconut oil to the mixture and apply on face and neck. Wash off with lukewarm water after 10-15 minutes.
Do regular facial massages: Get a facial massage once every two to three days to make sure that there eis good circulation in the facial muscles Make sure you massage your face with a moisturiser or face cream in circular strokes. Look for a moisturiser or face cream with ingredients like ashwagandha, neem and sandalwood as well as cold-pressed oils like sunflower-seed, almond and aloe vera, as these ingredients can do nourishing wonders to your skin.
