Fighting Dryness This Winter

Winter season is finally here. So are the biting winds, hot steamy showers and sudden dips in the temperature. These can suck the life and moisture out of your skin and hair. However, we offer you complete advice for soothing your body’s dryness from head to toe!
- Dull Complexion:
The dry and cold weather can cause the skin cells to become severely dehydrated, leading to the buildup of the dead cells on the surface. The blood circulation tends to get sluggish and therefore leads to a dull complexion.
It is crucial to boost your beauty from inside out. Drink lots of water and eat foods rich in Omega 3 fatty acids. Salmon and walnuts are rich sources of Omega 3 fatty acids and can boost your skin’s glow.
On a daily basis, make sure that you apply a milky cleanser all over your skin in order to wipe away the dead skin cells. Using a face balm which is rich in moisturizers also insulates your skin and prevents it from drying.
- Dull Hair:
Winter sucks the life out of your hair and makes them dull, depressed and apathetic. Along with that, the static friction with your clothes also makes it very hard to manage your hair.
Conditioner should be your best friend! Choose a conditioner which is rich in silicones in order to lock down the moisture and seal it from within. Conditioners also leave your hair soft and silky which prevents and neutralizes the ill effects of static clinging.
- Dry and Itchy Scalp:
Winters not only bring in snow, they also bring along the white flakes to fall all over your shoulders! Dry scalp often comes across as gross and unwanted. Itching and flakes are the major symptoms of a dry scalp.
Make sure that you use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner if you suffer from Dandruff. Also, apply oil down the middle of your hair and the exposed part of your scalp. Apply the oil till your scalp is well saturated and then wash it off after 15 minutes. If the flakes are still persisting, then go in for a shampoo containing zinc pyrithione.
- Cracked Skin:
Taking long hot showers and not applying enough body cream afterwards can make your skin cracked and dry. Arms and legs have fewer oil glands; hence, the chances of dryness are manifold.
Milk is a great solution for dry skin. The natural fats and lactic acid in the milk can soften and exfoliate your skin. Add two cups of skimmed milk to your warm water bath. Soak in for 15 minutes and pat dry your skin. Later on, apply milk and honey cream in order to boost the benefits of an enriching bath.
