Skin tends to become very dry during Winter hence you need extra care to keep the skin moist and supple.

Mini Sood Banerjee, Brand Manager at Innisfree India, offers tips on how one should take care of different skin types in winter.

* For dry skin: The skin becomes more dry in winters. In the morning start your routine with washing your face with a cream based cleanser, since foaming cleanser will make the skin drier. Use a moisturising toner which will maintain the skin’s moisturisation levels. After that use a rich face cream which will give intense moisturisation to your skin. Use an SPF in the last. You can also use honey as a facemask in winters, since dry skin becomes flaky and starts peeling. Honey won’t let the skin peel off.

* For oily skin: For oily skin, it becomes easy during winters. Wash your face with a normal cleanser, use a water-based toner or clean your face with rosewater. Use a water-based moisturizer. Make sure that you moisturise your face after every time you wash your face, to maintain the balance of the oil levels, Use an SPF as a last step.

* For combination skin : Combination skin tends to get dry in winters hence the demand for extra care. Use a normal facewash or cream based face wash as per your choice, tone your face and apply a thick cream for intense moisturisation, apply SPF as a last step. At night also use a cream before going to bed. You can use homemade packs like mix of malai and besan pack for 10 minutes and wash off.

Last but not the least, we tend to drink less water in winters because we turn to hot drinks. But don’t forget your skin needs hydration from both inside and outside. Take some warm water with lemon, that can be both refreshing and hydrating at the same time.

Anuj Mishra, Education Manager at Kiehl’s India also have some inputs to share.

* Use lukewarm water to shower and wash your face and use gentle non-stripping cleansers so that the skin barrier remains healthy.

* Always use a gentle alcohol-free toner so that PH of the skin remain balanced.

* Stay hydrated by using heavier moisturizers but in case your skin breaks out very easily, or you still feel that your skin is oily, try to give hydration through lightweight serums which contains natural glycerin and Hyaluronic acids.

It is the beginning of another year and the time when most of us make a resolution that we would like to achieve for both physical and emotional well-being. As a mother, it is natural to want the best for your little one. There is nothing more important than ensuring overall wellness for both you and your little one. This New Year, celebrate motherhood with a few simple tips thatll help you adopt a safe and gentle skin care regimen.

Say yes to products with botanical ingredients

It is time to go in for products with botanical ingredients. Products infused with the goodness of herbs remain the best and safest option for you and your little ones’ skin, especially during the initial months of childbirth and post-pregnancy. Moms can opt for products with the goodness of aloe vera, country mallow, winter cherry, khus grass, Indian madder, sesame, almond, coconut and the like that can help cleanse yet maintain soft and supple skin.

Moisturisation is key

Regardless of the weather, it is important to moisturise the skin. Adequate amount of moisturiser will provide the required nourishment and protect the skin from dryness/irritation. You can opt for a baby lotion with almond oil and licorice (Yashtimadhu) that help keep the skin soft and supple.

For yourself, opting for a body butter enriched with cocoa butter and glycerin will help retain the skin’s moisture. When the moisturiser comes with invigorating fragrance of rose, lavender or jasmine, it also helps relax the mind.

Massage enhances the well-being of mother and baby

For healthy and radiant skin, massage plays a key role. Regular massage with an oil enriched with sesame oil, country mallow and winter cherry helps strengthen your muscles and leaves you feeling rejuvenated.

A massage is also the best way to bond with your little one. You should look for an oil that is specially formulated for babies and enriched with olive oil and winter cherry that helps in baby’s overall growth and development.

Gentle cleansing goes a long way

Gentle bath cleansers infused with herbal actives keep baby’s skin clean and hydrated. Baby products infused with chickpea, fenugreek and green gram act as an excellent cleanser.

To maintain soft and supple skin, choose a soap-free formula for a gentle and mild bath from the very beginning for your baby.
