Dry skin is a main problem that affects many people, moisturising the skin alone is not enough during winter. Proper steps have to be taken to lock the moisture using oil, finds experts which make organic ayurvedic cosmetics.
Vishal Bhandari, founder at Soul Tree, a brand which makes organic ayurvedic cosmetics, suggests tips.
‘Use oil, yoghurt and buttermilk mask or glycerin moisturizer to protect the skin during winter.’
Oil and moisturiser
Mix well a few drops of body oil in a heavy duty moisturiser. Generously take an amount on your palm and apply it all over your face and body. The moisturiser hydrates the skin whereas the oil acts as a shield to lock the moisture in.
Yogurt and buttermilk mask
Mix equal amount of yogurt, buttermilk and a moisturiser and apply it gently while massaging in circular motions of the face and neck.
Yogurt cleanses the skin and also lightens blemishes, whereas buttermilk helps to repair dull and dry skin.
In a container pour in one fourth of glycerin and mix it with a moisturizer. You can use it as a primer before make-up. The glycerin will act as a base coat and the moisturizer will help shield the skin. You can also store this in a container for over six months.
