New Delhi, December 12, 2016: Ready for the new winter look but not ready enough to go out in the cold? While the season is all about enveloping yourself in cozy quilts, sitting by the heater and sipping hot beverages, it’s also about dealing with dry skin, chapped lips and cracked heels.

Chandirka Mahenrda, Principal Scientist, Personal Care, the Himalaya Drug Company, has shared ways to be ready this winter season.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

* Nourish the skin from within: Feeling your parched skin and moisturising it minute-to-minute can be a little annoying. So, in order to keep your skin soft and supple, all you need is an intensive skin care regime, including cocoa butter. A cocoa butter moisturiser preferably herbal in nature, once applied, not only provides day-long nourishment but seeps through the cracks of your skin and deeply nourishes it from within.

* Moisturise your skin well: So, you have your wardrobe ready for winters and you’ve managed to pull off the best attire amongst your peers, but have you checked your face before leaving the house? While you can apply make-up to your best, a good cream is a must that not only keeps your skin hydrated all day long but can also be used as base to keep your make-up intact.

A white complexion day cream with ingredients such as licorice will help lighten skin, fade dark spots and blemishes and white dammer which when coupled with licorice helps reduce mild pigmentation and spots, thus resulting in an even skin tone.

* Kiss those chapped lips goodbye: While we all have used products with petroleum jelly, mineral oils and silicones at least once in our lifetime and given a hard time to our lips, have we ever laid our hands on products with 100 per cent natural vitamin E? Wouldn’t we prefer presentable, soft lips over shaded chapped ones?

The best way to go natural is to pick one of the flavours such as vanilla, litchi, strawberry, peaches and cocoa from herbal range of lip care products. Each of these have their own benefits and helps nourish your lips completely. This time, you can pick your flavor and not only the color.

* Don’t stay put with cracked feet: Winter squeeze away the moisture from our skin and heels are no different from other parts of the body. A daily light massage of your heels with herbal cream is a must. Look for a Foot Care Cream consisting of ingredients such as turmeric, fenugreek, sal tree and honey which together act as an ointment for regular use for smoother heels. Time to pay heed to your heels! (IANS)

The winter season can bring some key challenges for new parents as newborns are a little more sensitive and need extra care in the cold season. Ensure their skin is well moisturised and protected, say experts.

Rajesh Vohra, CEO, Artsana India (Chicco), in assistance with Chicco Osservatorio, suggests:

* Must-have body lotions for winter: To fight dryness of baby skin in winters, selecting the perfect baby lotion can be a task for parents as babies have thin skin which loses its moisture faster in comparison to adults. Body lotion with Parabens-free formula and richness of sweet almond milk are ideal for protection and moisturising baby’s delicate skin.

* Moisturising rich cream: In winter, parents should always make sure that baby is being moisturised properly, especially the most exposed areas like face, hands and legs after bath to keep the baby’s skin soft and supple throughout the day. Good quality cream with the richness of Omega-3 and Vitamin E helps in deeply nourishing skin’s driest areas keeping it nourished all along the day.

* Nourishment through massage oil: The skin of a newborn is very gentle and requires special care each day. Massaging the baby with special baby oil that is parabens-free and enriched with high nourishing properties of rice bran oil is very beneficial for the baby’s delicate skin.

* Winter apparels, for keeping your baby warm with comfort: While shopping for babies, parents must look for certified and high quality natural fabrics which are soft and comfortable so that it does not cause rashes and discomfort to the baby.

* Protection from dry air: In winter, the humidity level drops and dry air can affect baby’s health — from nasal infection to sore throat — which they can’t even let you know, and from dry skin and cracked lips to breathing issues in some cases. A humidifier in the baby’s room adds much-needed moisture to the air and creates favourable breathing conditions, allowing your baby to sleep comfortably.

C. Suresh Kumar, Head Of Department – Pediatrics and Neonatology, Apollo Cradle, suggests:

* Take Care of the skin: Do not apply too much of soap and leave it on the body for long as it dries up the skin causing irritation. Bath duration should not exceed 5 minutes in order to prevent over hydration of skin which may lead to easy fragility of skin and decrease threshold of injury.

* Give a quick bath: As baby skin is very thin and fragile you should dab rather than vigorously rubbing which results in damage to superficial layers of skin. Finish bath quickly.

* Include fresh fruits and vegetables in the diet to keep skin healthy: Fresh vegetables, especially green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits like apples, bananas and oranges, should be given to increase immunity and health of the skin.

* Keep the child warm: Make sure the baby is warm inside the home. Your baby should be well covered while you take him/her out in the winter and must be covered in woollen clothes, socks and mittens (if there’s any allergy or irritation, use cotton). The child should not be exposed to cold winds which cause can cause cold, cough and pneumonia.

* Keep the skin moist: Always try to keep the baby skin moist. Apply moisturiser within a few minutes after the bath. Since the skin is very delicate, use moisturisers that contain coconut oil, olive oil and almond oil. This will also nourish the skin. (IANS)
