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)

A Warmer Winter For The United States Due To El-Nino And Climate Change

While El Nino is the biggest factor in the forecast, long-term warming from human-caused climate change is a factor.

Winter looks wet and especially mild for much of the country, thanks to a weak El Nino brewing, U.S. meteorologists said.

The National Weather Service on Thursday predicted a warmer than normal winter for the northern and western three-quarters of the nation. The greatest chance for warmer than normal winter weather is in Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, Montana, northern Wyoming and western North Dakota.

No place in the United States is expected to be colder than normal, said Mike Halpert, deputy director of the government’s Climate Prediction Center.

The Southeast, Ohio Valley and mid-Atlantic can go any which way on temperature, Halpert said.

Overall the winter looks a lot like the last few, Halpert said.

“The country as a whole has been quite mild since 2014-2015,” Halpert said.

Winter weather expert Judah Cohen, of the private company Atmospheric and Environmental Research, uses different indicators to predict winter for the National Science Foundation. He also forecasted a warm winter, heavily based on weak snowfall in Siberia.

Precipitation

Halpert said the southern one-third of the United States and much of the East Coast could be hunkering down for a wetter than normal December through January. The chances are highest in southeastern Georgia and much of northern and central Florida.

Hawaii, Montana, Michigan, parts of Idaho, Wisconsin, northern Illinois, Indiana and Ohio are forecast to be drier than normal, with the biggest likelihood in Hawaii, Montana and Michigan.

The middle belt of the nation and some of the north from California to New York can go any which way on precipitation.

The weather service’s forecast doesn’t look at snow likelihood.

El Nino

Halpert said the biggest factor in the forecast is a likely El Nino , the natural warming of parts of the central Pacific Ocean that influences weather worldwide.

The El Nino hasn’t quite formed yet, but it’s almost warm enough. Meteorologists predict there’s a 75 percent chance it’ll be around this winter. But it will be weak, not strong like the El Nino that helped lead to the record warm 2015-2016 winter, Halpert said.

Background warming

While El Nino is the biggest factor in the forecast, long-term warming from human-caused climate change is a factor, too, Halpert said.

“All things being equal, the slight kick we get out of the climate signal does tilt things toward the warm side,” Halpert said.

But it’s not enough to outweigh other factors if they push toward cold.

“Even on a warming planet,” he said, “it doesn’t mean winter goes away and it’s never cold again.” (VOA)
