How to take care of your skin during winters?

26th November 2020
"Don't forget to hydrate and moisturize your skin often!"

Winters can be pretty hard for your skin. From roughness and patchiness to breakouts, you can face several problems. But, who'd like to be irritated with these winter skin problems, right? So, it is requisite to take proper care of your skin, or else you may suffer a big-time from inflammation like eczema. We've provided some tips on how to take care of yourself during winters. 

Moisturize often

You may have found yourself the perfect moisturizer that fits you and your skin well for different seasons. Your skin is affected by the environment and requires a different form of care every season. So, you must seek out a moisturizer (best if oil-based) that suits your skin during the winter. As you face extra dryness and patchiness during winter, replace your regular moisturizer with a heavier one. Also, you need to check the type of oil in your moisturizer as not every oil is suitable for your skin. Inspect the oil present in your moisturizer and avoid any form of oil like shea or butter as they clog the pores. You must hydrate and let your skin breathe during the winter

Stay hydrated

Stay hydrated, be it during summer, winter, spring, or autumn. You must stay hydrated to take care of your overall health. 

Get yourself a humidifier

Your skin turns rough because of artificial heating as well. You must have noticed your skin gets tight when you sit in front of the heater. Thereupon, in order to keep your skin soft and humidified indoors, get yourself a humidifier.

Moisturize your feet

Your feet suffer a big-time during winter. So, try to grease up your feet with lotions that contain petroleum jelly or glycerine. Also, if you have dead skins in your feet, exfoliate to keep your feet healthy. Moreover, exfoliation helps your moisturizer to sink in better and faster. 

Take care of your hands

Your hands have thinner skin than most of the other skin on your body. You may have noticed, during winters, the skin on your hands crack and dry out sooner than any other part except for the lips. The skin on your hand may also get irritated. So, you must take care of your hands slather on the moisturizing lotion often and wear gloves every time you step outside in the icy cold winter.

Exfoliate often

Dry skin will eventually dry out without a simple exfoliation. However, intense exfoliation and hand cleansers are also not good for your skin. Pick up a gentle scrub and give yourself a gentle exfoliation to remove those dead skin. After your skin is buffed, your serums and moisturizers can be soaked properly

Don't over-wash for face

This may sound off the chart, but washing your face more than twice a day can dehydrate your skin. So, don't wash your face very often with hard face wash. 

Don't quit on sunscreen

There's a misconception among people that sunscreen is beneficial only during summertime. Well, not just from the sun, your sunscreen protects you from winter sun and snow glare which can be pretty damaging to your skin. Try applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen 30 minutes before heading outside.

"Beaty comes from maintaining."

We are very conscious of our looks, mainly face. There are a lot of devices, tools, facial appliances that are used to groom our faces. Beauty comes with maintaining and taking good care of your skin. We have prepared a list of 6 such tools to keep your skin look glowy and wrinkle-free. These facial appliances are easily available in Nepal at affordable prices. So, don't forget to add these skincare appliances to your vanity.

Tweezers might just be one of the most overlooked tools of beauty out there. You've already got a pair stashed in your cosmetics bag or vanity. You know that tweezers are crucial to getting rid of mischievous eyebrow hairs, but it's always worth noting. You could also use tweezers to allow you to apply crystals and stickers to your manicure with precision. You can do a lot with tweezers so don't forget to keep it in your make pouch.

 

Derma roll

A derma roller is a beauty treatment product that helps to exfoliate, treat acne scar tissue, and reduce aging signs. Using the derma roller is very easy. But before using a derma roller spray it with alcohol and warm water to sterilize. Then you can prepare your skin with n antiseptic. Now, use the derma roller on your face and after that use saline after the skin becomes red. This is very helpful for maintaining healthy skin.

 

Facial steamers

Steam opens the pores and helps to remove any dirt accumulation for a deeper detox. Even opening the pores loosens blackheads and makes them more likely to clear. It encourages movement. The mixture of warm steam and elevated suddenness dilates the blood vessels and improves circulation. Using a facial steamer every day is not the right idea, as pleasant as it may sound. If you use it so much it will do more damage than good, irritating your skin. So use it wisely and get the perfect skin at home.

 

Pimple, blackhead, zit, whitehead remover kit

Facial massage will enhance a variety of ways to help the skin look healthier. It increases breathing, relaxes tones, and muscles. Massaging facial skin helps calm the muscles that appear to create tension marks. Skincare Experts suggest doing facial massage at least 2-3 days a week for at home. Smooth massaging for 5-10 minutes a day does no damage to your skin either. It tends to facilitate the flow of the blood and to fade fine lines over time.

Reecha Sharma- My skin care routine is pretty normal and simple

22nd November 2020
"My skincare routine is very simple and normal."

Reecha Sharma is a semi-finalist of the Miss Nepal 2007 pageant who started her journey as a model, later starred in many Nepali movies, hosted in TV shows, and currently, she is a producer as well. She shines wherever she goes with her confidence complemented by her glowing flawless skin. We recently had a short interview with her where she shared her secret and steps for attaining glowing skin like hers.

In the interview, we asked her if she could share her skincare routine and steps she usually follows to keep her skin beautiful and glowing. She gladly shared her skincare routine with us mentioning that her skin is dry and her skincare routine is pretty normal and simple. During that short interview, I realized that she is so humble and down-to-earth as a person.

"My skincare routine is very simple and normal; I would say.” She began,” Every day before going to bed, I put on some coconut oil. I've been using cold-pressed virgin coconut oil for the past one year and it has really changed my skin. Also, I clean my face with micellar water every evening. Even when I don't put on any makeup, I clean my face with water and then apply micellar water. Normally, I don't use much face wash but only at times when my face doesn't feel cleansed enough, I wash my face with a face wash. Before going out, I always apply sunscreen and moisturizer. It is a must for me. Also, I keep dabbing sunscreen in between as it helps and protects my skin from the sun."

"During the avocado season, I apply avocado and yogurt as a mask every week to keep my face hydrated and moisturized." She says, “Then, I scrub my face with a scrub made up of ayurvedic herbs, and then, I apply Lavanya's ayurvedic moisturizer."

As she mentioned coconut oil has changed her skin, I couldn’t help myself and got really curious about how it changed her skin as I’d never heard anyone applying coconut oil in their face. But after listening to her, I felt that coconut oil is a cure for dry skin to prevent tightness and to keep one’s skin hydrated.

 She responded - "I had very dry skin before. I used to do body massage with coconut oil; so, I wanted to try it on my face. And I started doing that. I used to have really dry and flaky skin. I also used to get a lot of pimples. But, I liked cleaning my face with it. And it really started getting really shiner and soft. Since then, I couldn't stop using it."
