Winter is just not about warm clothes, fireside reading, snuggling close to the pillows wrapped from head to toe with a comfy quilt. It is time to battle the cold winds that hamper your body and hair.
Water plays an important role in keeping your skin alive and a good amount helps in retaining moisture as well keeping skin disorders at bay. Fruits and vegetables in your daily diet release a lot of water to your system.
Use the paste of ground green gram powder instead of soap to work your way to soft and supple skin.
Pamper you skin with a little coconut oil before you bathe and use a creamy soap that renders that extra suppleness to your skin.
Add a few drops of oil to the water that you are using for your bath. Avoid using very hot water during winter as it can decrease the natural oils of your skin.
Before the winter winds can wreak havoc with your hair, expose your hair to deep conditioning. Since the cold weather causes dry hair, massage your hair in Aloe Vera juice for a few minutes.
You can also treat your hair to an oil massage once or twice a week and olive oil can work wonders in reinforcing moisture to your hair. Heat the oil before using and allow it to soak.
Woolen clothing like hats, scarves and turtlenecks can cause damage to your hairline. Since they can cause breakage, first cover your hair with a silk scarf before exposing it to winter wraps.
Style your hair with a braid, twist or a knot. Keep away from leaving your hair open and wild, as the cold winds can really mess up your hair.
Keep away from blow dryers. If you have to use a blow dryer, use one with a hood.
