Bring out all those oils and the deep moisturising lotions Winter is here. Everything is cold and everything is dry, From hair to nails. Every part needs more TLC this season. And the irony is we don’t feel like anything this season. All we want to do is snuggle and stay under the blankets warm.
Usually I have a very basic skin care, In winters i kind of take extra care for my skin and hair. I am sharing some of the things I do in these winters.
For hair : If you have read my earlier posts you would have understood by now, my love for oils. I oil my hair before washing. I have fine and wavy hair so I am not much experimental with hair care products.
I dont change my shampoo for winters. I continue using the same. I do go for Head massages if i get a chance.I love the pamper.
I use the Hair masks mostly the moisturizing DIY’s ( Hair Masks ).
I dont use the conditioner as it makes my hair weighed down next day itself. hence the Oil treatments and hair masks. I do use hair serum though.
Face : Usually the same routine, nothing much is changed. Except for almond oil massages.
I wash my face and use a gentle scrub, warm the oil and massage the oil gently and wipe it of with warm wet towelettes. I do this once in a week.
Body : I don’t moisturize my body much I am way too lazy to do it. Ok I am not proud of it. I am so used to not doing it, I don’t even realise i missed it. Thanks to the Body scrubs. It keeps my body enough moisturized. At least it does not dry out my skin. But If I notice the dry patches I go full on applying the body lotion all over my body for the next few days.
Hands and Feet : This I am very proud to say I have the softest hands and feet in winters than compared to all the other seasons. Reason, Petroleum Jelly. Yes. I wear socks in winter, so I apply a thick coat of gel on my feet and wear socks and massage the gel nicely onto my hands. I apply this on my elbows or on very dry patches for quick relief.
You don’t need a whole army of expensive products to survive this season. Few basic things are good enough to face the weather.
I do get break outs in winter but i get them through out the year too. So relax, wrap up and enjoy this cold winters.
