Sitting around the fire with a hot cup of tea or coffee in your hands, wrapped in a warm fleecy shawl or jacket – winter feels quite special. While winter may be your favorite season, it may not be for your hair and skin.
Winter’s windy and cold weather can be cruel on your skin and hair. In the winter, the dry air outside is enough to slurp moisture from your scalp, leaving your hair dry. Hair loss, breakage, and damage can also result from a lack of humidity in winter.

Similarly, winter can dry out your skin, leading to redness, chapping, itchiness, and cracking. Not only can the drier air outside dehydrate your skin, but your indoor environment can also dehydrate it, resulting in winter itch.
Luckily, winter is just around the corner and hasn’t quite arrived. So, you, like everyone else, have some time to winterize your skin and hair care routine.
Scroll down to read some winterization tips to keep your skin and hair looking as good as possible this winter!
Tips For Winterizing Your Skin
Don’t forget to cleanse your skin: In the colder months, cleansing your skin is quite indispensable. But be careful not to overdo it, as it can deplete your skin’s natural moisture. You are not required to use cleansers or soaps on areas such as your legs, arms, and trunk on a daily basis.
Use moisturizers and nourishment creams: Using creams and moisturizers to pamper your skin can help hydrate, soften, and nourish it. This provides your skin with an additional layer of protection as well as adequate moisture retention.

Say no to the sun while going out: Winter sunlight, like summer sunlight, can be damaging to your skin. Overexposure to the sun can lead to premature aging and other skin problems. Wear sunscreen if you intend to spend more than half of your day outside.
Choose recommended body lotions: Nourishment body lotions, particularly those containing almond or shea butter, are ideal for winter. They can help to soothe the skin and keep it from feeling tight and uncomfortable.
Avoid taking hot showers that are too long: Taking steaming hot baths or showers can damage the protective barrier of the skin. Not only it damages your skin surface but also dries out your skin.
