Just as food, clothing and shelter, a healthy beauty regime is a must for our skin. Do not forget to scrub your face and moisturise without fail, suggest experts

Shikhee Agrawal, Head-Training at The Body Shop and Sonia Mathur, Head Training at Divine Organics have listed a step-by-step regime:

* Discover your skin: Get a skin consultation to know your skin well. Skincare regime varies with skin needs and concerns. It is important that you identify your skin needs and work on it.

* Cleanse: First and the most basic step is keeping your skin clean. Wash your face with a sprinkle of lukewarm water. Hot water shower or face wash leads to dryness and dehydration while a splash of cold water leaves you frozen. Cleaning your face with rose water helps in waking up your skin after a long sleep.

* Exfoliate: Our skin is enveloped by smog, pollution and dirt and exfoliation is the best help to such a skin at least twice a week. Papaya, orange( extracts of vitamin C ), rose petals, Chinese ginseng, acai are strong exfoliaters and great for varying skin concerns.

Latest in exfoliation is the facial peels which act as powerful exfoliators and dissolve all the inactive proteins and dead skin cells. The regime is excellent due to its healing and protecting properties and reduces the damage caused by UV rays and environmental pollution.

* Mask your face: With cleaning and scrubbing once your skin is free from all dead dry cells, lock the open pores after scrubbing with face masks made from natural ingredients such as charcoal, vitamin E and C, blue corn, honey and oats, seaweed, tea tree and aloe vera infused with rosehip oil and rose petals. These face masks exfoliate and invigorate to vibrant and healthy looking skin.

* Moisturize and hydrate and nourish: Take a spread of vitamin E, seaweed, and vitamin C enriched moisturiser to activate the skin cells with a replenishing skin and glow.

* We tend to neglect drinking water in winters. Hydrate your skin by drinking 8-10 glasses of water to cleanse from within.

* Defend and protect your skin: Smear a layer of sunscreen with SPF and UVA filters to protect your skin from premature ageing, dryness, and dullness.

* Avoid touching your skin every second. No matter how itchy your skin feels, wipe your face with a gentle soft wipe or cloth. Touching leads to bacteria build up. IANS

NEW DELHI: The whole of India is reeling under the intense wave of cold and especially the NCR region which is heavily bogged down by the fog blanket. People can be seen wrapped in heavy woolens and are turning up to bonfires to keep themselves warm. Many trains are also getting delayed almost an everyday basis due to the heavy fog.

The cold wave has started taking a toll on the people and Surviving the harsh weather condition is becoming a grim reality for many. The cold is intense and becoming unbearable for the people who are sleeping in open. Due to it, many homeless and poor people are taking the direct hit of cold weather in Delhi.

According to a survey conducted by the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB) in 2014, the national capital has around 16,000 homeless people. But the social activists deny these figures and state it to be around two lakh.

Also according to another report by Hindustan Times, the DUSIB’s winter action plan 2017-18 for night shelters was rolled out on November 15. But the ground realities are quite different from the claims made by the Arvind Kejriwal led party.

The minimum temperature recorded at 4.2 degree Celsius, three notches below the season’s average. The bone-chilling cold has brought many people to their knees and there is nothing much that they can do. According to police records, in the last six days, 44 people have already lost their lives due the bitter winter.

The huge promises of AAP party don’t seem to be fulfilled that they boasted during the time of election campaigns. One of the agenda that Arvind Kejriwal took up during election time was the rehabilitation of homeless people in makeover sheds. But the death count of people in the last 6 days has really brought the question of ethics and principals that was the prime agenda of AAP party.

In one of the recent tweets, former AAP party member, Kapil Sharma has exposed the filthy politics of Arvind Kejriwal.

The terribly cold nights on footpaths and open grounds are the only options left for homeless people. The Delhi government should come up with something substantial as the winter is already turning out to be too dangerous.

The problem is acuter for the women and kids, who have no place to hide themselves from the exceptional cold wave of winter.

Last year, following the demolition of the homeless shelter by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal expressed his concern over the issue and assured that there will be makeshift habitats for poor people. But till now nothing has been done from the government side to subdue the problem.
