Tips to stay beautiful in winter in India

In winter (specially like DILLI KI SARDI :) ) skin becomes dryer, flakier and more irritated. So how is it that some women look so darn supple and healthy, even in the dead of winter, while you're all dry and chapped? As usual, we're here to help with 10 USEFUL tips to keeping beautiful in winter.
Apply full-spectrum sunscreen even when it's chilly: You probably know that UVB rays are the sun's burning rays, but UVA radiation is the principal cause of wrinkling and skin cancer and can penetrate glass.

This means that even if you're at home, driving or in the office by a window, you'll need full-spectrum (both UVA and UVB) coverage. This is true on even the cloudiest winter days.
A good Sunscreen SPF 15 is a high-quality choice.

Don't linger(don't remain or stay on in a place longer than is usual or expected) in the bath or shower: Healthy skin has a protective superficial layer(beautiful layer of your skin) called the stratum corneum ‑- essentially, a natural "lipid barrier," and as temperature and humidity drops, this natural barrier becomes vulnerable to damage. Avoid prolonged bathing, especially with hot water, because the water will remove moisture from this superficial layer, leaving the skin drier, flakier and more susceptible to damage and irritation.

For the winter months, consider limiting your use of alpha-hydroxy acid products and astringents that contain alcohol for example Hard Soaps. We may love these products for their fast working properties, but they can strip the skin of its natural protective oils, leaving it easily irritated.

Humidifiers keep air moist. Look for a UV model because they offer a germ-free mist, better to soothe those dry lips and chapped skin.

Drink hot cocoa and get your antioxidants: According to recent studies, cocoa beans were found to contain large amounts of natural antioxidants called flavonoids; thus cocoa powders made from these beans are an undeniably compelling choice of drink. Go ahead, steam some milk and enjoy cocoa-anti-oxidants!

For dry and flaky winter feet, try exfoliating with a scrub like Sea Salt Body Scrub, which contains organic jojoba, avocado and vitamin E. Afterward, dry your tootsies and slip on cozy cotton socks overnight. Your feet will feel pliant and smooth in the morning.

For beautiful Winter Lips: Aside from looking wretched, chapped lips feel awful. Problem is, we continually damage the condition by licking, so it's an endless cycle. To roll off the dead skin, try a good lipstick or lip balm, then softens with Vitamin E & chamomile.

Protect Those Tresses: Tippi Shorter, we recommends using a leave-in conditioner before blow-drying hair, or using hot irons. She likes Pantene Pro-V Daily Renewal Treatment and if you regularly use heated styling tools,we suggest biweekly or monthly deep conditioning treatments to keep hair hydrated and soft.

Repair Winter Cells: Skin is nourished by blood and lymph fluid, and since less blood flows when you're cold, you'll want to compensate by giving skin extra protection and nourishment. We recommends regenerating your skin's appearance by using products that feature amino-peptides, which work by renewing the skin's outer cell layer.
