With the winters approaching, it is now time to conquer the skin game. Winter is a hard season for the skin. The dry and cold winds can leave your skin vulnerable and extremely dry.
Winters bring patchy and dry skin, skin redness and many such issues. It is not a pleasant feeling for skin. It’s just like skin is struggling with the extreme winter weather.
Following are the best home remedies that can be tried to beat winter skin problems.
Dry skin is the most common winter skin problem. The dry winters absorb the moisture from skin thereby making it dull and dry. Your skin needs a lot of moisturisation to cope up with this issue. And nothing is better than honey to do the same. Honey is also called as humectants since it attracts moisture to the skin and thereby it is very effective for dry skin. Honey also improves the appearance of the skin due to its anti-inflammatory and healing properties.
What is needed: Raw honey
Usage method: Apply the honey on skin and leave it undisturbed for 15-20 minutes. Now rinse it off thoroughly using normal water and repeat this remedy every alternative day for the best results.
During the winters, white patches are formed around the nose and mouth. It is very distressing to cope up with patchy skin. That’s where the role of aloe vera comes in. Extreme dryness is the major cause of flaky and patchy skin. Aloe vera is a hydrating ingredient which gives skin a moisture boost. The antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, healing and antiseptic properties of aloe vera ensures proper health to skin.
What is needed
Aloe vera gel
Usage method: Apply aloe vera gel on the affected areas of skin. Massage it gently into the skin and leave the skin undisturbed. If the skin feels sticky then wash it off after 15-20 minute and repeat this remedy every single day for the best result.
The dry weather is not only reflected on your face but your lips as well. Lips are the first place to be affected by the weather change. Chapped lips are the major winter skincare issue. Luckily, you can also bring life to your lips with only just two ingredients ie. Honey and sugar mixed together forms a tremendously hydrating scrub for lips. The coarse texture of sugar in Honey and Sugar mixture provides the exfoliation while honey helps in adding hydration to lips and heals your lips from within.

Combine both the ingredients in a bowl to form a coarse mixture. Further apply this mixture on your lips and gently scrub lips for 3-5 minutes and leave it undisturbed for another 10 minutes and rinse it off thoroughly. Now finish it off with the lip balm and repeat this remedy 2-3 times a week for the best results.
