A time of year with beautiful foggy mornings, soft blankets, chill air, and hot chocolate. Isn’t it?
People love the shorter days and longer nights, the cool air and low humidity, and the calm weather throughout the winter. Apart from these things, this is also the season when you should pay closer attention to your skin. When the temperature and humidity drop, your skin cries out for hydration.

Why Is Winter So Harsh On Skin?
It’s no secret that the winter weather can be harsh and contribute to drier skin. Cold air contains far less moisture than warm air. When that moisture is lost, your skin might become exceedingly dry. The strong winds that are characteristic of the winter months can also rob your skin of fluids and contribute to drying it out.
In the winter, the appropriate combination of skincare products and a consistent skincare routine may help you achieve healthy, glowing skin (and all year long). Many models and celebrities keep the after-effects of chilly weather at bay with these easy, expert-recommended DIY beauty tips.
If Your Hands Are Cracked And Dry, Use Gloves:
Dry hands are a common problem during winter. So, always apply heavy hand cream and then put gloves on overnight to get an extra effect. It also helps in preventing hands from getting dry and chapped.

Exfoliate Flaky Lips:
You won’t believe it, but the cold air and wind can chap your lips and drier. For a quick way to slough dry lips, exfoliate flaky lips with honey and brown sugar. All you have to do is mix it with a dollop of honey with a pinch of sugar in the palm of your hand and gently rub it onto your lips with a cotton swab. Swap it with lukewarm water and apply a lip moisturizer.
Apply Body Oil Before Bath:
Hot water can dry your skin, but taking a cool shower in the winter probably isn’t happening for you. So, what is the solution?
Apply a body oil before you step under the steamy spray. It works like a primer. Yes, the oil creates a shield to protect skin from the water and lock moisture in the body.

Don’t Forget To Layer Up:
Never go out in cold winters without applying sunscreen lotion. Most people believe that the sun’s rays are not powerful enough during winters. But the winter sunlight or UVB rays are the main cause of sunburn – especially at high altitudes and on reflective surfaces such as snow or ice.

Stay Away From Irritants:
That wonderful-smelling body cleanser you adore? It might be advisable to take a break during the winter. Avoid perfumes, colors, and sulfates in cosmetics; they are irritants that are especially irritating to dry skin.”
This is it! In addition to these tips make sure you’re drinking enough water. Radiant skin begins on the inside.
