* Break the lip-licking cycle: With the onset of winters, lips tend to get very dry. People tend to lick their lips thinking this will help with the dryness. This has a reverse effect on the lips; saliva makes the lips even drier. Keep your body hydrated by drinking ample amounts of water; this will help keep your body and lips hydrated.

* A lip balm is a must: Pick lip balms with nourishing and healing properties with ingredients such as organic ghee, almond oil and coconut oil that are highly moisturising and help protect the lips.

* Lipstick: Lipsticks offer great protection against cold weather and helps prevent chapping. Lipsticks colours like pink and plum are always fun to wear during winters. The key is to opt for lipsticks that not only add a pop of colour to your skin but also moistures the lips. Ingredients like Organic ghee, honey, almond oil, Rose oil will help keep lips soft during winters.

Skin care for babies is an essential step in their overall health routine. Babies have delicate skin which is more prone to skin concerns than adults. A change in the weather also impacts their sensitive skin. Be it heat, cold, or the rain, each one impacts your baby in different ways. Heat rashes and diaper rashes are very common among babies, and the right care is required to manage these rashes.

“Heat rashes is the most common problem that occurs in babies during summer and humid seasons. Excessive heat and sweat gets trapped in the folds of babies’ skin, thus leading to a rash. Diaper rashes, on the other hand, are caused if the diaper is too small and tight. Another reason that can cause rashes and other skin concerns is the use of products which are not chemical free. It is very important to use products which are natural and mild, and maintain the healthy pH of your baby’s skin. So, look out for products that contain natural ingredients and are free from harsh chemicals for the best care of your baby,” adds The Himalaya Drug Company’s Ayurveda Expert (R&D) Subhashini N.S.

These natural ingredients help soothe skin rashes and accelerate the healing of baby’s skin:

* Calamine: Calamine is an effective ingredient that helps in healing wounds and soothing skin rashes. It contains zinc oxide that helps reduce red bumps. You can opt for a calamine infused lotion and apply it on the irritated skin after a bath or anytime during the day on clean skin.

* Vetiver: Due to its astringent property, Vetiver helps manage excessive sweating and keeps baby’s skin cool and fresh. Applying a prickly heat powder with the benefits of Neem and Vetiver after a bath can help keep your baby’s skin cool and free from prickly heat.

* Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera is used extensively in Ayurveda. It acts as an antibacterial agent and an astringent, which helps accelerate the healing of baby skin.
