Why we need different skincare in winter

Summer is all about oily and itchy skin problems, while on the other hand, winters lead to dry and dehydrated skin conditions. Well if the majority of problems arising during both these seasons are so different, would it be logically sound to say that the skincare routines for summer and winter would also be different. And it is understandable if you find this a little daunting. However, there is no need to worry, as we will walk you through the transition from one routine to the other during these seasons to maintain the healthy glow of your skin with these tips by beauty expert Shahnaz Husain.

  Winter exposes your skin to cold and dry weather conditions, which leads to dry and dehydrated skin conditions. Application of sunscreen is still necessary for winters, especially nowadays since the UV rays are still intrusive. Moreover, even exfoliation is important but use different ingredients.

1. Exfoliation
Basically even during winter, your skin would necessitate the removal of impurities; however, it will at the same time also require more hydration. For instance, the best natural ingredients that can be used are oats and honey, granulated sugar and coconut oil, aloe vera and walnut powder. Exfoliate only once a week.
 2. Hydrating face masks and moisturizer
 Incorporating a hydrating and nourishing mask would help. Mix half a teaspoon honey with one teaspoon pure almond oil and one teaspoon dried milk powder. Mix into a paste and apply on the face. Remove after 20 minutes with plain water. It would rejuvenate the skin and help it glow naturally.
