Get Rid of Dry and Flaky Skin This Winter

Any extreme weather condition¡Vbe it hot or cold can damage your skin. However, winter is particularly hard as the dry wind, and chilly weather can make your skin dry up leading to flakes. To counter the flaking skin, exfoliate your lips, face and body once a week, and don't forget your sunscreen, suggest experts.

Pallavi Mehra, Marketing Manager at VanityCask, and Arzoo Shah, make-up artist at MyGlamm, have shared how:

Exfoliate lips: Treat your uneven dry and chapped lips with luxurious lip scrub pertaining feed for one's lips with essential plant extracts. Fuse ground coffee with brown sugar and macadamia oil to get a pout as soft as velvet.

Choose a radiant base: To get that perfect sheen, opt for a radiant and dewy finish foundation. A peach and pumpkin palette is the perfect substitute to bronzer during winter season to achieve a natural look.

Cream-based blushes: To bring back that healthy flush and imperceptible glow this winter, cream blush is the need of the hour. A hint of both colour and moisture formula giving cheeks a three dimensional look bring the contours of the cheeks forward.

Hydrating primer: A lightweight, serum-like textured primer provides a great canvas for make-up. An illuminating primer mattifies skin for that extra dose of radiance.

SPF: Applying sunscreen to your face and hands every morning is essential. If you are anxious about the chemicals in sunscreens with high SPF, you can opt for children's sunscreen as it's just as effective and extra gentle on your skin.

Don't shy away from supplements: Take supplements to give your skin some additional lift, particularly during the winter months. For winter, pay special attention to vitamins E, C and B2, which will support the creation of skin cells.

Exfoliate: Between the cold, damp air outside and the dry indoor heating, your skin cells are majorly dehydrated, which can lead to a build-up of dead skin that can eventually clog your pores. Exfoliate your body once a week and your face once or twice a week, but make sure you don't over exfoliate.

Use lip balm: There's nothing more irritating than cracked dry lips. A good lip balm is the key to getting soft lips.

You don't need to limit your Vaseline or lip balm to your lips. You can apply it under the eyes at night to keep away crow's feet, and also use it to tackle dry skin on your face. You can even use your lip balm on the ends of your hair or to tame fly always if you need a little extra moisture.
