4 Skincare Mistakes To Avoid During Winters
1. Avoiding sunscreen
It is a false believe that sunscreen is not needed in winters. It is needed 365 days a year. No matter how much you enjoy the mild sunshine on your body this time, the harmful effect of UV rays remains as same as summers.
2. Excessive or less exfoliation
Excess is always bad, so as less. Exfoliation is pretty much needed in winters as skin cells get dried up the most. But that doesn’t mean the exfoliation should be rigorous to peel of all the dead cells. Same way less exfoliation will clog your pores and promote breakouts. So, a moderate amount of scrubbing is perfect for even in winters.
3. Using summer cleansers
Do you find your skin becomes dry and flaky after using a facewash? This is because your summer cleansers are still in your usage list for winters. Summer leads to produce oil on the skin and winter tends to snatch it from the skin. So, go for oily and hydrating cleansers for complete skin protection.
4. Using hot shower and room heater
Hot showers and heated rooms may feel cosy during winters but they can damage your skin. Yes! Heat wipes off the natural hydration and leads to flakiness and dryness. So, avoid hot showers and embrace luke-warm water to take bath if you want a radiant skin even during winters.
