With the winter season approaching, our skincare regime should change accordingly. Winters can be really very hard on our skins so we’ll be listing homemade remedies for you to have glowing fresh skin even in the winters. One thing that must be kept under consideration is that throughout the winter season, sun exposure is at its highest, hence, our skin is more prone to damage. Therefore, no matter how cold the winters might get, keep your sun exposure under control and never forget to apply sunscreen, even on a gloomy day.
Malai and Honey
Natural products without any chemicals are always the best way to treat your skin. One of these products is milk cream or malai. It will help make your skin soft and smooth. Like milk cream, honey can also be very refreshing for your skin as it helps clear your skin of bacteria that ultimately end up in clogged pores and acne. For this DIY to be effective all you have to do is take a tablespoon each of honey and milk cream in a bowl, then mix well. Once mixed thoroughly, apply to your face and leave it on for 15 minutes before washing off with lukewarm water. Let your skin dry on its own without using a towel or if you want, pat it dry. You will feel a more moisturized, smooth, and soft skin after only the first application.
Olive Oil, Cocoa Butter and Ginger Paste
Olive oil and cocoa butter are commonly used to moisturize skin. To get even more out of these two, all you have to do is to add a teaspoon of ginger paste into a tablespoon of cocoa butter and a tablespoon of olive oil, and apply on your face and neck. After 15 minutes wash off with lukewarm water and use your regular moisturizer.
Banana and Milk
Patchy skin is the second most important concern faced in the winter season after dryness. Hydrating skin with bananas and milk will do quite the job for you in this respect. But if you have patches with oily skin, you can replace the milk with rosewater. Mash an entire banana, which helps peel off dead skin, in a bowl and add one tablespoon of milk, which is commonly used as a clearing agent, and mix well. Apply to your face and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes, then wash off with lukewarm water. Follow with your regular serums and moisturizer.
Aloe Vera and Almond Oil
The benefits of aloe vera are numerous. Luckily, if dead skin is a huge concern for you, look no further; aloe vera along with almond oil is the answer to all you need. For these ingredients to show their magic, take 10 drops of almond oil (if you don’t have almond oil at hand replace it with sesame oil), add a teaspoon of aloe vera gel and blend well between your palms. Now apply the mixture to your face and massage it for 10 minutes. Leave it on overnight. Wash it off in the morning, feel your skin soft and smooth like never before.
Carrots and Honey
If your skin is dull and patchy, carrots won’t just help if you apply paste but if you include their intake in your daily routine, you will be pleasantly surprised thanks to the beta carotene found in carrots. Honey, as mentioned above is a great moisturizer. With the help of both these ingredients in a mixture, you’ll be able to treat dull skin as well as patchiness. Mix a tablespoon of honey with a peeled and pureed carrot to make a paste. Apply the paste to your face and rinse off with lukewarm water after leaving it on for 15 minutes.
Papaya and Raw Milk
Papaya is naturally packed with all the skin-loving nutrients that will help your skin feel soft and plump. Rich in vitamin E, milk will add moisture to your skin. To make this magic potion, take half of a ripe papaya cut into pieces and mash it. Add raw milk until the mash turns into a puree with a coarse texture. Apply to your face and leave on till it dries. Wash it off with lukewarm water and apply your usual moisturizer. HH
