The cooler weather strips off moisture from the skin. A regular day time lotion may not be enough to keep your body moisturized for 24 hours. Try to replace your lotion with an oil or an extra-nourishing lotion. Aromatherapy can also work wonders. Use some lavender oil while in the shower or add a few drops of olive oil in the bucket. Avoid taking very hot showers or exfoliating too much, as it’ll just make your skin more fragile. Winter is actually as damaging as summer sun so apply a generous amount of sunscreen to any exposed areas before you step out. In the night, treat your skin to a rich cream massage. To support extremely dry, cracking heels or rough elbows, massage those spots with organic castor oil. Daily application during winter can help heal cracks and smooth out stubborn roughness.

This includes cleansing off all the dirt with a light face wash, followed by toning and moisturizing. You can indulge in natural moisturising by using warm almond or extra virgin olive oil and use it as a night massage routine. Home-made face packs are highly effective. Use ingredients like avocado, yogurt, honey, bananas, olive oil and aloe vera to make nourishing masks. Treat chapped lips by using petroleum jelly or an over-the-counter lip balm.
