As the cold winds of winter set in and the temperature drops, many of us fight a battle against dry and flaky skin. The drop in temperature can make our skin feel tight, itchy and cracked. From dry itchy skin and chapped lips, combating winter dryness becomes a crucial part of the seasonal skincare routine.

Winter dryness usually occurs due to various factors such as cold air, heated indoor environment and decreased humidity levels. These factors collectively lead to loss of moisture from the skin making it dry, itchy and cracked. However, with a few adjustments and consistent practices, you can shield your skin from the harsh effect of winter and make it plump, healthy and glowing.

1. Hydration inside out!

Hydration is the key. Ample amount of hydration is required to combat dryness from within. Keep your body  hydrated from inside by consuming plenty of water throughout the day. Consume herbal teas or warm beverages to maintain the moisture level in the body.

2. Moisturize! Moisturize! Moisturize! 

Invest in high and good quality moisturizers during the winter months. Our skin tends to get sensitive during winter and it is important to keep it protected from the harsh weather conditions. Hydro Bomb intense hydration works best for normal to oily skin type whereas Hydro Bomb 72h hydration is perfect for normal to dry skin type. Both the moisturizers provide a protective barrier and locks in moisture. Use a generous layer after washing your face.

3. Exfoliate mindfully

Exfoliation helps in removing dead and dry skin but remember to not overdo it especially during winters. Opt for a gentle exfoliator like the Vitamin C Scrub. Exfoliate once a week to prevent dry, flaky patches. This step also helps in better absorption of the products in the skin.

4. Protect your skin

Do not forget to apply sunscreen even if it is cold outside. The harsh UV rays are still present and can cause extreme harm to the skin during the colder days. Go for a broad spectrum sunscreen like Himaira’s Sunscreen Mousse SPF 50 PA +++ and is also enriched with hydrating ingredients like Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E.

5. A relaxing winter shower!

It is relaxing but avoid taking long hot showers. Hot water can strip off the natural oils from your skin. Instead take a short shower with lukewarm water and include hydrating body wash which can help retain the moisture. Himaira provides a range of creamy body washes that are perfect for the winter season.

After every bath, make sure your body gets back the moisture. Winter can cause extreme dryness on your hands and legs. Remember to not just provide hydration to your face but also your body.
