One can mix oats, lemon juice, and honey to scrub away the dead cells and get a radiant face. This scrub acts as a natural exfoliator and does not harm our skin, rather keeps it soft and smooth.

We all desire to achieve flawless skin which imparts radiance and glow.

You can also consume carrot, tomato, pomegranate juice, as these help to detoxify the body and provides a natural glow to the skin.

4. Don't Ditch the Sunscreen


Well, it might be a bit amusing but the fact of the matter is that sunscreens are quite important even in winters. The sun rays may not be able to provide warmth in this season but certainly it causes immense damage to our skin. The harmful effects of this season are extremely taxing on the skin and it is important to choose a great sunscreen to shield the skin against these effects.

Applying a sunscreen with good SPF helps the skin to stay protected from the harmful UV rays of the Sun. It is advised to wear a sunscreen whenever you go out to avoid various skin issues like Wrinkles, Premature Aging etc.

5. Eat, Sleep, Moisturize and Repeat!


This Freezing season takes a toll on our skin and somehow dryness is that annoying guest who is here to stay for a bit longer. From chapped feet to dry hands and rough skin, we are constantly looking for ways to hide our skin, which is not so attractive anymore.

Moisturizing should be your go-to-activity that you perform as often as possible. It is recommended to use a nourishing cold cream which has a repair mechanism to rejuvenate the skin. One can also use natural moisturizers like Coconut oil, Aloe Vera Gel, Cocoa Butter etc which will make the skin smooth and supple.

6. Say bye-bye to the regular facewash


Your regular facewash might be very precious to you but it's time to get rid of it for this season, atleast. The regular facewash steals away the oil & moisture from the skin and makes it oil and moisture free. These facewashes might have been your best buddy during summers and autumn but they turn out to be your foe during winters.

During this harsh weather, it is advised to use a gentle facewash which helps in balancing the oil secretion and simultaneously cleanses the skin. Cleansing is quite important as it helps in removing the impurities from the skin and cleanses the pores as well.

7. Modify your skincare routine

One should avoid cleansing quite often and should opt for a mild cleanser which doesn't take away the moisture from the skin. One should preferably choose a toner which is alcohol-free and non-fragrant, in order to help the skin in retaining the natural oils.

Moisturing should become the priority and you should prefer to apply rich cold creams or moisturizers which eracdicates dryness and roughness from the skin. Also, it is highly advisable to frequently moisturize the face, palm and feet in order to achieve a healthy skin.

Winter brings along with it truck load of laziness which seems inescapable. But exercising regularly is quite important to maintain a healthy body and mind. We always lay great emphasis on the physiological benefits of working out but the fact of the matter is that also helps in achieving a healthy skin. It increases the blood flow and helps in nourishing the skin cells, therefore, one should try to work out daily in order to maintain a healthy skin that is flawless and ever-glowing.
