HEALTHY WAYS TO DEAL WITH YOUR SKIN AND HEALTH THROUGH WINTER SEASON
Here are some healthy ways to deal with your skin and health through the upcoming winter season:
For oily skin
People with oily skin can take an empty spray container/bottle and fill it with rose water, aloe vera juice and 2 drops of almond oil and spray it on their face–thrice every day. Feel free to carry the bottle along with you in your bag. Following this routine will take off dirt and excess oil, leaving your face adequately moisturized throughout the season.
For dry skin
You know how dry skin can start acting up, especially in winters. But overdosing it with too much cream and oil isn’t the solution either. Fix dryness without making your skin too greasy by pouring some glycerine, rose water, lemon juice, and 3 drops of almond oil in a small bottle and let it soak in indirect sunlight for 2 – 3 days straight.
Use this solution as a night serum and rinse the next morning to keep your skin glowing and hydrated throughout the snowflakes season.
For combination skin
Having combination skin is like being the middle child. You sure have some perks of it, but most of the time, you really can’t decide which side you belong to. Settle the dilemma of at-time-too-oily and at-times-too-dry skin by repeating the same recipe as above without almond oil.
Concoction for winter
There’s never a bad time to drink carrot, beetroot and spinach juice, but in winters, you can boost your glow and keep health in check by drinking this juice by adding pepper and ginger to it. This juice also helps better your vision and soothes a sore throat.
During the chills, one should also eat dry fruits such as almonds, walnuts and figs because they have natural oils in them and those oils are needed to regulate parts of the body that crave extra oil in that season
