5 Skincare Remedies to Turn to During Chilly Winters
1. Creamy Avocado Mask
Avocados are naturally rich in skin-boosting properties. They have healthy fats, vitamins and minerals inside them, which gives your skin radiance and vitality. Moreover, the fats, compounds, and vitamins found in avocados may help speed skin repair and improve chronic skin conditions like eczema and acne.
Skincare experts also believe that avocados contain compounds that may help protect your skin from sun damage and inflammation. Because it is rich in vitamins C and E, it can also oxidate damage caused by the sun and other factors. To make a mask using half an avocado in puree form, add 1 tablespoon of honey (for very dry skin), and a teaspoon of olive oil.
Apply it on your face and leave it for 20 minutes and then rinse it off.
2. Sugar Scrub
Sugar scrubs do magic on the skin as it makes an excellent alternative for moisturizing and exfoliating. All you need to do is mix ½ cup of sugar with 2 tbsp of olive oil, and add your essential oil of choice (if you’d like). Simply rub it on your skin, wash it off after a good 15 minutes and use a moisturizer afterwards to lock in the moisture.
3. Coconut Oil Cream
When at room temperature, coconut oil takes a solid form. You can apply it as an alternative to moisturizing cream during bedtime, or anytime you’d like. It is ideal for those who suffer from chapped heels, hands, and lips. Once you’ve applied the oil, put on a layer of thick socks to lock in the moisture for as long as possible.
4. Aloe Vera to the Rescue
Aloe vera gel relieves sunburns, irritative skin, and dry skin, and brings relief to those with skin trouble. Moreover, aloe vera also decreases signs of ageing. Make sure you apply heaps of this gel every now and then to help you when needed.
5. Natural Oil Bath
Natural oils make great winter remedies, especially when they are infused in warm to hot water (that you never feel like coming out from). “Natural oils are great for moisturizing the skin and helping to re-create the natural skin barrier, which is often damaged by frequent hand and face washing with water and drying soaps that strip the skin of its natural protective oils,” Dr. Shainhouse. Shainhouse recommends adding a few tablespoons of the desired oil under running bathwater.
