8 Easy Ways to Winter-Proof your Skin

What are the easy tips to keep the skin healthy and not dry?  Dr. Sangeeta Amladi – Head Medical Services, Kaya Skin Clinic brings you 8 simple ways which will help you do that.

  1. Drink adequate water
  2. Eat balanced food containing all nutrients. Include vegetables, fruits, and fresh fish in your daily food intake.
  3. Avoid alcohol and coffee. Both will dehydrate the skin and predispose to more drying and itching. 
  4. Avoid using harsh soaps. Soap free cleansers containing moisturizers are safe choices. 
  5. Using a humidifier inside the house will help keep the skin moist even during winter. 
  6. Exercise will help produce sweat and increase blood flow to the skin, which will improve the hydration of the skin. 
  7. Colloidal oat meal baths, in addition to their action of preventing water loss, also soothe the skin.
  8. Apply a good moisturizing cream or lotion immediately after bath, before the body dries up. This will trap the moisture inside and keep skin soft and supple.
