Tips to get winter-happy skin

Taking care of your skin during the winter is a struggle. Yes, it is that time of the year when we experience chapped, itchy and dull skin. And while the right cold creams and moisturising lotions are a must, it is also important to follow a winter-appropriate Skin Care Regimen to battle dryness and keep your skin soft, supple and radiant. Here are some simple tips you can follow to ensure that your skin bears a healthy glow throughout the winter months.


Pick the right cleanser
Our skin often feels dry and stretched after a wash. A regular face wash/cleanser can deprive the skin of its natural moisture, making it feel excessively tight and dry. It is best to pick a cleanser that does the job without disturbing the skin’s natural balance. Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Face Wash is a clay-based cleanser that not only cleanses the skin but also maintains Oil Balance for up to 8 hours*. Its unique Kaolin Clay Therapy absorbs excess oil, without removing essential nutrients from the skin. It also contains Glycerin, which retains the skin’s natural moisture, and Neem which helps prevent the formation of pimples and acne.


Switch to a gentle exfoliator
Since your skin is already dry during the winter, harsh exfoliators can further strip it of its natural oils. This season, go for gentle exfoliators such as the Kaolin Clay-based Lacto Calamine Oil Balance Face Scrub that removes dead skin cells while being gentle on the skin and maintaining the skin’s natural moisture.

Avoid hot water
Although it may feel good to step into a hot shower this season, but hot water can suck the moisture out of your skin. Instead opt for lukewarm water. Also, apply a moisturising lotion on slightly damp skin to seal in the moisture.

Invest in the right moisturiser
Your Skin Care Routine during these months is very important. Facial massages can help you maintain soft and healthy skin throughout the winter months, while moisturisers give it that much-vied-for suppleness. So how do you select a moisturiser that is easily absorbed and doesn’t leave your skin looking greasy? Lacto Calamine Lotion is a clay-based lotion that comes in two variants—For Oily Skin and For Combination to Normal Skin. It provides Oil Balance through a unique 3-way action that involves: 
1. Kaolin Clay that absorbs excess oil and retains essential oil on the skin
2. Zinc oxide that helps prevent pimples with its anti-germ properties
3. Glycerin that helps retain the skin’s natural moisture


Maintain a healthy diet
It is important to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out to fight off winter dryness. Eating foods with high water content can help you achieve this. Also include nuts, seasonal fruits and veggies in your diet. Consume foods rich in vitamin E and C for a glowing skin, and zinc to support the healthy production of collagen.
