Skincare Tips for Winter

For hands and feet

Mix 1tsp sugar crystals well to 1 tsp honey and 5 tsps orange or lemon juice. Massage the mixture over your elbows, hands and feet and leave for 10 mins. Wash with water after that. This will leave your hands and feet smooth and glowing.
Natural Moisturizer
Oil based moisturizers are recommended for winters. Melt some shea butter or cocoa butter along with 2 tsps of virgin olive oil. Add a tsp of aloe vera gel into this mixture. This can be a wonder homemade winter skin care. To keep away wrinkles and fine lines during winter, here is a natural anti aging lotion. Blend a small piece of cucumber, avocado and few mint leaves along with jojoba oil. Add a pinch of benzoin into the mixture and some water to make a fine paste. Strain the excess water and apply this paste on your face and hands. If you have made more, not to worry, you can store it in a bottle and use later.
Chapped lips
Chapped Lips are the biggest problem during winters. Honey is a time-tested remedy for this. Apply a thin layer of honey (recommend organic honey) over your lips before going to bed and wake up with smooth lips!
For Hairs
When it comes to hair, if you're already having dry, brittle hair, it can be worse during winters. Using hair dryers or strong shampoos will only worsen the condition. Heat pure coconut oil and apply on the scalp and hair. Remember, not to leave the hair ends. Wrap a hot towel over it and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Then wash your hair with a mild herbal shampoo or using hibiscus paste. You can make it by grinding few hibiscus flowers and leaves.
Things to note:
Avoid cosmetics and hairstyling products with alcoholic content during winters. Because, alcohol strips away moisture Hot water showers make you feel great in winters. But they wreak havoc on dry skin. Try lukewarm water instead.
