When winter comes around, our bodies usually suffer — but not this year! We show you how to keep your skin soft and supple all season through with products that all come from the kitchen.
Cure those chapped lips
When our lips are exposed to the cold air it often results in dry, chapped and cracked lips, which is unattractive and painful. Drinking lots of water, not licking your lips, keeping your lips moisturised with a soothing lip balm and sleeping with a humidifier should be enough to keep your lips lusciously soft all season through.
But if your lips are still in a state, one of the best ways to improve their condition is by using a lip scrub as described in this video below.
Replenish frizzy hair
The condition of our hair is often worse in the winter months, as we crank up the heat indoors, which in turn depletes moisture.
Hydrate your harrassed locks with this deep-conditioning treatment at least once a week for a hydrating boost, and you won't have to hide your hair under silk scarves and woolen beanies.
Perk up parched hands
The best tip to combat dry hands is to wear gloves - they're an effortlessly stylish way to protect your skin - and to thickly lather on moisturiser as often as you can. Below is great treatment you can apply onto your hands and feet at night, and cover with thin plastic gloves or cotton socks, which will keep your hands in tip-top shape.
Drench that dry skin
When your skin is feeling taut it's telling you it is dry and needs moisture.
Soak your skin with an unscented body lotion or cream (like aqueous cream) as a scented balm could irritate your skin further. Drink lots of water (I know, it's the same old thing but it really does work) to help hydrate your skin from the inside out.
Remove makeup mildy
This video shows a gentler and more cost-effective alternative to the sometimes harsh makeup remover that can aggravate sensitve and dry skin, especially during winter.
