There’s no dearth of beauty products available in the market, each promising to provide the ultimate care for your beauty needs. But rather than getting overwhelmed or feeling totally confused about how to effectively look after your skin and hair in the cold season, try to follow the basics. You really don’t need to spend hours or stock up on endless beauty products to keep your skin and hair protected through the seasonal changes. Instead what would help is to follow smart beauty tips that will keep you covered through the entire season.
Here are six essential winter beauty tips you need to make a note of:
– Boost your skin confidence
Hydration and moisturising are essential for your skin, especially with the cold air making the skin severely dry. It’s a lesser known fact that coconut is great for the skin and has a number of uses. Using a light-weight body lotion enriched with coconut butter will not only keep your skin feeling supple and well-protected, but also gives your skin a party-ready glow.
– Nourish your roots
Your hair is the next in line after your skin that bears the brunt of the chilly air. Be it frizziness of hair or dandruff, the root problem is lack of ample nourishment. Oiling regularly with a coconut-based hair oil keeps the moisture levels up and the dryness away. To nourish your hair deeper, use a botanical serum with chamomile extracts, this will increase the lustre of your hair and give it a great texture. For those of you who are seeing some silvery strands on your head, chamomile is a wonder ingredient and is also a great way to increase the melanin level in your roots thus delaying the process of greying.
– Soothe your lips
Lips tend to get chapped, dry and red in winters. Use an effective lip scrub made of nourishing ingredients to gently remove dead skin cells and leave them with a soothing feel.
– Hydrate and hydrate
Though this may seem like a very basic tip, most of the times we tend to overlook this. Keeping yourself hydrated throughout the day is essential to avoid dry skin, and it’s also important to using hydrating ingredients on your skin to keep it soft and supple, such as a gel-based hydrating face cream.
– Good quality equals good style
Use a good quality hair shampoo which will cool down your scalp and leave it feeling clean. The right shampoo helps give your hair a perfect balance of softness, smoothness and volume needed for everyday superior styling. While styling your hair, use wax or post shower so that it catches on well and gives your hair a fresher look. Or better still, switch to a nourishing hair cream that will help on styling as well as in looking after the hair.
– Get fresh with face wash
Daily bathing soaps are a big no-no as they dry out the skin and sometimes cause redness. A well-groomed man needs to be particular about his overall look from head to toe. Use a face wash that helps cleanse grime and pollution, brightens your skin and most importantly gives it a burst of aqua cooling with a refreshing fragrance.
