Let’s Weigh In On The Changes You Need To Make To Your Skincare Routine This Winter
One of the biggest skincare sins that women commit is to not make their routine flexible and adaptable. Changes like hormonal cycles and aging require us to add, subtract or replace certain aspects of our regimen so that our skin can continue looking its best. The need for change is especially true when it comes to changing seasons. Girls who like to be constantly on the go, are always subjecting their skin to weather conditions and if they are not prepared, it can wreak havoc on it. And since it’s getting chillier every day, we should have gotten started on taking care of our skin, like yesterday!
Our skin goes through various changes in terms of its hydration. While in summer, the skin is naturally hydrated, in winter it could become dry due to lack of humidity in the air. One doesn’t sweat as much, which is why we need to moisturize our skin more so than usual. Being prepared with the right moisturisers that suit our skin is one of the most important must-dos for the winters.
The generic skincare tip we have always gotten is to moisturise. But we like to be thorough and dwell in the details, all of which we received in a conversation with entrepreneur and producer Deepshikha Deshmukh.
Deepshikha, founder of Love Organically, is also the daughter of Indian producer Vashu Bhagnani and sister of the actor-producer Jackky Bhagnani. Her label ensures that all raw materials are procured from farmers rendering a fair share and consistent business to them. The brand also communicates via seed paper and also ensures the use of bio-degradable packaging. Part of the company’s profits goes to the NGO Snehwan – a non-profit organization that provides educational empowerment to marginalized children of drought-affected farmers. Beauty with a cause, indeed!
How Should You Update Our Skincare Routine For Winter?
For colder months everyone’s skin becomes dry and it is most important to hydrate our skin as regularly as possible. Women with oily skin should use a light, water or gel-based moisturiser or one with a lighter base. When it comes to dry skin, they should use a heavy moisturiser. One should also try and spray their skin with a mist every now and then to keep it hydrated. Remember ladies, hydration is key, both internally and externally.
How Do You Deal With Winter Winds?
The one and the only way to deal with cold winter winds is by applying an external moisturiser and re-misting your face every 30 – 45 minutes. Another thing that would really help internally would be to consume some fats, like an avocado or a spoon of coconut oil, every day. Pay attention to picking only food-grade coconut oil and not to overdo it if you have issues with cholesterol.
How To Get Rid Of Flaky Skin?
Flaky skin doesn’t just need moisturising it also needs repair. A good tip for that is using turmeric in a pack on your skin every now and then to help repair the skin. There are also repair serums that one could use, depending on their skin type, followed up with a good moisturiser. It’s a routine one must develop as moisturising alone is not enough.
