While at Salosa we are happy to provide all the professional care you need to have absolutely great skin and hair this season, but we also believe that some ‘dadi maa ke nuskhe’ or DIY home remedies can go a long way to make sure you continue looking fantastic this season. So here are some tips to get you started.
You can easily get rid of that dry skin with some simple yet effective homemade face packs. Honey and egg white is a good option to bring back the moisture. Honey and milk is also an easy to make pack for super soft skin. Oatmeal and milk is another recommended pack. You could also simply add some lemon to honey and use it as a temporary moisturizer before you hit the shower.
Massage, and then massage some more. There are various oil massages that you can indulge in this dry winter season, so take your pick. Use sesame oil for cracked heels. Do it in the night and pack those gorgeous feet inside socks and a warm blanket. Your feet will emerge in a new supple avatar in the morning. Almond oil and the good old coconut oil are great for massaging your whole body. You can add a few drops of whichever oil you prefer in your bathing water too for fresh aroma and soft skin.
Cracked, chapped lips have become almost synonymous to your winters? Some daily home remedies can totally change that for you. You can apply a mix of castor oil, lemon juice and glycerin on your lips overnight and see them glow with a new shine the next morning.
Get your face over to a steam machine or a vessel with hot water and soak up all the steam you can. It will open up all the clogs and help in getting rid of the dry winter skin. You can even add some loose chamomile tea leaves into your water. Yes, you heard it right! The tea leaves will help you relax your muscles and make your skin soft.
While there are many simple and quick home remedies that can gently take care of your skin this winter season, however, you should also know what suits your skin and what doesn’t. If any ingredient of any face pack or a type of oil, for example, doesn’t suit you, you must not apply that. An easy test is to try it out on a small part of your skin and wait for some time to see if it causes by unwanted reactions.
