How to deal with dry and flaky skin in winters
As the winter season sets in, so does the dreaded battle against dry and flaky skin. The drop in temperature and humidity levels can wreak havoc on your skin, leaving it parched, itchy, and uncomfortable. However, here’s a list of effective ways to keep your skin hydrated, supple, and radiant even in the coldest months of the year.
Choose the Right Cleanser: Opt for a gentle, hydrating cleanser that doesn’t strip away the natural oils of your skin and have soothing properties. A cream based cleanser is an ideal choice for dry skin people round the year. Avoid harsh, alcohol-based products that can further dry out your skin. Our ‘Touch Me Not’ cleanser is a gentle cream face wash that cleanses the skin effectively, yet does not strip it off its natural moisture while doing so.
Moisturize: Moisturizing the skin is the most crucial step during winters for everyone but especially for dry skin people. Invest in a rich, emollient face cream for dry skin to lock in all that hydration and create a protective barrier on your skin.
Our That Good Cream is a deeply nourishing moisturiser that also soothes and calms irritated skin, strengthens the skin’s natural barrier and keeps it looking more youthful, while protecting it from environmental stressors.
Pro tip: Always apply moisturizer on damp skin i.e. immediately after showering or washing your face to lock in the moisture.
Additionally, to treat extremely dry skin, Face oils for dry skin are proven to give that boost of intense moisturisation and prevent trans-epidermal water loss.
Along with your face, your lips and body also need some extra care and nourishment during winters. Apply a generous amount of any deeply nourishing lip balm that heals, hydrates and soothes your dry, chapped lips. Ghee Pout is one such really moisturising lip balm that heals dry, chapped lips beautifully. In addition, it also works to lighten pigmentation on the lips.
For the body, opt for a light-weight, non-greasy yet hydrating enough body lotion or a hand and foot cream.

Exfoliation: Congested pores, blackheads/whiteheads and rough texture are not always just the concerns of oily skin people but sometimes also for people having dry skin. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells, allowing your serums, moisturizer and other skincare products to penetrate and perform better. Use a gentle exfoliator once or twice a week to slough off dry and flaky skin. Avoid over-exfoliating, as it can irritate your skin and worsen the problem. You can opt for a chemical or a physical exfoliant as per your preference.

By following these simple yet effective tips, you can bid farewell to dry and flaky skin this winter. Consistency is key, so make these skincare practices a part of your daily routine. Embrace the season with confidence, knowing your skin is well-cared-for and glowing with health.
