Whether you have oily skin, normal or dry, winters are skin spoiler. Both skin and body suffer from sudden changes of temperature.
Many times our face and hands go red and dry in winter, and also, the body and the skin do not look quite right. A less bright and pale shade; a definite mood spoiler. Instead, locking down yourself in a room with a room heater, it is better to have some home based treatments. Here’s what you can do for your skin and your body this winter.
- Vaseline isn't the only skin saver in town
- Have the glow you always want to.
- Limit your time in the tub
Avocado is great for all skin types, especially for the dehydrated. Do you skin a favor; once every two weeks, give yourself an avocado clean. You need to blend that until you get a smooth paste and apply it on skin for perfect cleansing.
Leave it on for 10-15 minutes and then remove it with warm water. Once done, wait for another half an hour and then give yourself a toner and a moisturizer at night.
Yes, I know berries are not easily available in the market, especially the fresh ones. But, those from the supermarket, frozen, are equally good for both your diet and for skin.

If you’re not a fan of these homemade face masks, then here is how you enhance the effect of your cosmetic products. Take a shower with warm water, not hot. Apply a moisturizing shower gel, as much as possible made from plants (more expensive, but worth it!).
Also, use a shampoo that suits your hair type and, then a conditioner. Rinse the shampoo with warm water. Then, apply the conditioner without rinsing the hair.
