Dermatologist Recommended Tips for Winter Skin Care
In this article, Dr. Jaspreet lists out some tips that you can add to your Winter Skin Care routine.
Minimizing Time Spent in Sauna
At the start of the new year, the amount of people who visit health clubs and gyms is higher than ever. All thanks to the new year resolutions around fitness that almost everyone tends to keep! Apart from this, what surges is the use of Sauna and the time spent in Sauna.
A Sauna session can surely be quite relaxing, however, it can also make you lose moisture and eventually make your skin show signs of stress due to the lost moisture. It’s important to keep the moisture locked in the skin during the winter months. So never go overboard with the Sauna sessions!
Using Lip Balm
Use a lip balm to seal in the moisture and prevent lip lines and cracks. We’ve covered this topic in great detail already on the blog, you may check it out here.
Shaving After Shower
Shaving is known to irritate the skin and especially more during the winter months. All of this makes nicks, cuts, and razor burns very easy to get. So before shaving, make it a habit to take a warm shower that softens your hair, after this apply the shaving cream or gel, and then shave in the direction the hair grows!
Moisturize, Moisturize & Moisturize!
A great way to maintain a healthy level of hydration is moisturizing the skin. The hydration needs of your skin change as the weather changes and gets colder.
Use Sunscreen Every Day
UVA is as harsh in winters as it is in summers! Don’t make the mistake of skipping sunscreens when the sun feels weak! We’ve covered this topic in detail, just today! So do check out that article as well.
Take Care of Your Hands
Pay great attention to the way your hands look and feel. The skin around your palms and fingers is thin when compared to the skin around the other areas of your body. This makes keeping it hydrated a lot harder. Wear gloves, and invest in oil-based hand lotions throughout the day.
Invest in a Humidifier
One of the most well-kept skincare secrets they are a great addition to your home and office or any indoor space where you spend a lot of time.
Your favourite hot cup of coffee might quickly warm the body for hat instant comfort needed in winters, however, try swapping it with green tea for a while. You will get additional benefits of skin nourishing antioxidants. Moreover, green tea is low in caffeine which is known to dehydrate the skin if consumed excessively.
Staying In Touch With Your Dermatologist
People often make the mistake of not consulting a professional for their skincare needs at all! Don’t make the mistake and instead consult a professional when you feel an issue has become increasingly irritating for you or your skin!
