New Delhi, Dec 18, 2016: Adverse effects of the winter season on one’s skin can be minimised if you prepare for it in the right manner, says an expert.

Kiran Lohia, Medical Director, Lumiere Dermatology, lists precautions one can take for keeping your skin healthy during winter:

Precautions during the day

* Take brief showers: Keep the shower as brief as possible and use lukewarm, not hot water. Switch to less aggressive, moisturising solutions instead of soaps since the pH of soap is 7.5, which is greater than that of skin — 5.5. This high pH may cause the breakdown, leaking out natural moisture, lipids and nutrients from the skin. This increases dryness and can even result in rashes and worse eczema.

* Look for hydrating agents in skin-care products: Try to look for skin-care products that include ingredients known as natural moisturising factors. Look for constituents such as Hyaluronic acid, glycerin and humectants — a substance, especially a skin lotion or a food additive, used to reduce the loss of moisture — in skin products that promote the increase of natural moisture present in the skin.

* Use sunblock: Perhaps the most common skin care myth during winter months is that you can’t get sunburned. UV exposure is usual part of the process when your skin is exposed to sunlight, regardless of the season. Therefore, a winter sunscreen is a must. A broad-spectrum sunblock with SPF 30 (or more) should be used always, regardless of whether you are indoors out outdoors.

Precautions during the night

* Use a humidifier in your room: During winter, the air dries out. The dryer the air, the more it steals moisture from your skin. If you live in a dry climate, use a humidifier, particularly in your bedroom at night.

* Choose your cleanser carefully: Cleansers can strip your skin of natural oils, dry it out, and over time, lead to more visible lines and wrinkles. To prevent chapped and parched skin, embrace wipe-off, soap-free cleansers and alcohol-free hand sanitisers at night.

* Eat a healthy dinner: To protect your skin against damage in winter, watch your diet at night and include foods rich in Omega fatty acids such as nuts, avocados, and flax-seed. These essential nutrients act by reinforcing the skin barrier, making your epidermis more moist and supple. (IANS)

The winter season brings with itself fashion woes for daily office goers. Acing your style game in winter can be tricky, especially when it comes to work-wear. However, it does not mean you have to give up on your personal style to adjust to the temperamental climate and swap them for unappealing alternatives.

To clear the confusion, Ayushi Gudwani, Founder and CEO of FableStreet, a professional wear brand for women, and Carl Virk, Director, Carlton London share their pick of work wear essentials (apparel and footwear) for this winter season.

*A do-it-all stole: Multi-functional pieces are a sigh of relief amidst the bulky winter clothing that takes up major space in your closet. A warm stole that can double as a neck warmer and cardigan is your best bet this season. Invest in a neutral piece that can be paired with the comforting palette of winter clothing and is warm enough to keep you cozy.

* Solid knits: Knitted pullovers in solid colours are a must in your wardrobe as they are versatile in nature and compliment a variety of looks, if paired appropriately. Choose knits with a delicate texture in various colours. This is a great way to add edginess to your outfit while keeping it office appropriate. You can further accentuate your look by layering these with structured jackets / coats, cardigans, shrugs and much more.

* Trench coats: Trench coats are ‘it’ this winter season. After being all the rage in western countries, the trench coat trend has also appeared in the Indian wardrobes. Their timeless appeal makes them one of the most sought after winter friendly garment for office goers. Trench coats not only add form and structure to your attire but also are effortlessly stylish.

* Wool blend lowers: Layered leggings may sound like fun in winters, but they hardly qualify as formal wear in most offices. To reduce your distress of wearing regular lowers during the winter months, you can indulge in wool blend trousers and skirts that keep you warm. Select pieces in deep colours such as grey, burgundy, navy, etcetera and pair them with classic knits, silk shirts and blazers.

* Knee-high boots, the classics that never go out of style rise to the knee, or slightly there under. They are generally tighter around the leg shaft and ankle and fit easily at the top. They are mostly made of leather and are also available in suede. Pair up these boots with a pullover and a formal skirt to jazz up your work wear.

* Ankle boots are the most commonly worn fashion boots and are usually paired with trousers. These are available for both men and women. These boots are a perfect combination of style and comfort, and can easily be paired with dresses, skirts, jackets and blazers.

* Oxford shoe is a lace up shoe that has the bottom of lacing section sewn closed and one that also has the eyelet facings stitched underneath the vamp (front section of the shoe). These shoes are extremely popular amongst both men and women and are always recommended to pair up with a formal set of outfit for your work place.

* Pumps are the most preferred shoe style amongst the working women. These shoes are available in both wedges and heels which perfectly go with any outfit. Pumps are also known as Court shoes, a shoe with low-cut front line with either quilted silk or plain leather mostly trimmed with braid at the opening. Pumps can be paired with skirts, dresses, trousers and are perfect for work meetings, weekend brunches or Saturday nights. (IANS)
