Outside the cosy quilts and frothy cups of coffee, there’s a grey side of winter. And your skin is quite the victim. For many, winter brings a pinkish glow and for many others, it’s not really the best time for the skin. Instead of going for those harsh skin cosmetics to cure the most basic skin vamps, you should try going natural. They may not be as instant but they’re also not side effective. At times, ignored winter skin disturbances can aggravate instantly and get beyond control. Especially the chapped lips. While the right way to keep your skin safe during winters is to keep a tab on your nutrition, there are also some easy natural applications that you might want to know of. Here’s a lowdown of effective natural ways to help your skin stay safe and glowy during winters.
Do the dandruff away with coconut and lemon cream.
Dandruff happens due to a lot of reason. In winters, it usually happens when we use warm water for head wash. Calm and cure your scalp with a mixture of coconut oil and lemon. Apply it for a few days consequently for a clean and nourished scalp
Cure cracked corners with sugar and honey scrub
Sugar remedies for skincare have been a part of many cultures.
Sugar is a natural exfoliator and can help nourish the skin. If you use a sugar and honey scrub on your cracked elbows and ankles, you'll feel an instant difference. Sugar removes the dead skin and honey moisturizes it naturally.
Win over winter discolouration with natural skin dyes
Winters usually leave you pale faced. The dry air also dries out your skin’s natural pigments. At times, discolouration is also accompanied by dry and flaky skin. To get the hue back on, surround yourself with naturally tinted foods like beetroot, pomegranate, turmeric and tomato. You can consume these in the form of juice or apply these in a face pack form.
Seal the softness on your lips
Winter and chapped lips are best friends. Face packs are okay! But have you heard of lip packs? Mix coconut oil with mashed strawberries and curd. Apply this pack on your lips. You can smother it all over and leave it on 30 mins and feel an instant difference. Whenever you have chapped lips, it is advised to avoid licking the affected area and scrubbing off the dead skin. Instead, moisturize your way to soft lips.
Overcome Ogre Fingers with asprin and olive oil
The cold often causes your fingers to swell up and redden. Apply a mix of mashed asprin and olive oil everyday. It is also important to keep your fingers away from the dampness. Keep the fingers warm and dry and get back to the healed glowy fingers.
So people, take a natural route towards healthy and glowing skin this winter.
