Pre Diwali Skincare(PART 3)
The festive season peaks in the winter, which is harsh on the skin and can leave even normal skin dry and flaky. Extra care and attention is needed because during the cold months, the oil glands situated just below the surface of the skin tend to become relatively inactive and produce less moisture than usual. With the onset of winters, your skincare and makeup products also need to change to more moisturising, creamy options.
- Never sleep with your makeup on. Even if you're partying hard and just want to hit the bed, you may skip the toning-moisturising bit once in a while, but no matter how tired you are, removing all your makeup is an absolute must. Why? Because sleeping with your makeup on is the best way to suffocate your skin. It can age your skin almost 10 times more than normal. Overnight, your skin will absorb all the chemicals from the make up, clog up pores and cause breakouts.
- Cleanser. Remove all traces of makeup with a gentle remover before you go to bed. The baby Your Skin soap is a party girl's best friend as it cleanses and protects. It gently cleanses away makeup and impurities leaving skin extremely soft and hydrated. Remember to use a slightly damp cotton wipe so that it doesn’t drag on your skin.
- Moisturiser. If you use a normal
moisturiser in the summer months, step that up with a deep moisturising
emollient in winters. Worried about the first signs of aging, go for carrier oils like Rosehip, Argan, Avocado or Hazelnut, that will naturally keep your skin healthy and glowing.
- Scrub. You should exfoliate but no more than once a week in winters. Exfoliation will take care of the flaky, dry skin but make sure that you are gentle and don’t overdo it. Use a gentle scrub with tiny grains - as uneven edged granules that may create tiny tears in the skin. Your can Put 5 drops of Lavender essential oil in besan, and a little olive or jojoba oil.
