Follow the below mentioned steps and have better skin this winter (you can thank us later). However well-dressed you might be, dry, flaky, unkempt skin will make people want to stay away.
Whilst showering on a cold day, make sure (no matter how tempting it is) that the water temperature is below burning and the shower is short. Too much humidity will ruin your skin especially when you have to immediately jump back in the cold and harsh environment.
Invest in a good facial cleanser. An ordinary soap will just dry out your skin more and faster. Figure out your skin type (whether it is normal, dry, oily, combination or sensitive).
Always moisturize your body at least once after a shower and moisturize your face twice a day; once after a shower and once before sleeping.
Use a non-scented colorless lip balm or moisturizer to protect your lips as they are very sensitive and have a very thin layer of skin.
Exfoliate / Scrub:
Use an exfoliating scrub once a week to remove any dead skin and to make your skin smooth. Moisturize your hands with a good moisturizer so your cuticles and dead skin is under control. Exfoliating is a very important part of any skin care regime. Not only does it slough away dead skin cells, but it also unclogs the oil and dirt that lives in your pores and can cause breakouts.
Also, choose your deodorants wisely. You wouldn’t want to go for the one you usually use if it has harsh chemicals; especially during winters. What if it reacts with your dry skin? There is a wide range of deodorants for men currently. Try He Deodorants, newly launched in the segment.
Have water at regular intervals during the day. It flushes away all the harmful toxins and the dryness is kept to a minimum. Your skin needs to be more hydrated during winters thanks to the dryness.
