It’s no surprise that as the temperature takes a dive during winter, our skin problems soar. So, it’s time to show your skin some extra love after all the festivities and harsh weather, says an expert.

Disha Meher of Lakmé Salon, lists an easy and simple cheat sheet that will put an end to all your winter agonies.

1)Dehydration: If your skin looks patchy and fine lines have started appearing, it is definitely dehydrated and dry. The moisture level of your skin is decreasing because of reduced sebum. Opt for measures such as a white tea skin treatment, whose antioxidant properties nourishes your skin and restores its vital moisture content.

2)Sensitivity: Redness and inflammation are caused due to sensitivity that occurs when weather conditions change. Choose your products very carefully and moisturise your skin regularly to combat sensitivity. You can also try a soothing facial that will restore your skin’s pH levels.

3)Lifeless and sallow skin: Your skin might lose its lustre and look lifeless. The skin’s acid mantle is affected and hence the skin’s moisture and oil balance is disturbed. Massage your skin with a nourishing oil like Argan oil before sleeping. It will maintain the necessary levels of collagen in your skin.

4)Cracked feet: A common problem faced during winter is cracked feet. These superficial or deep fissures on the heels make your feet very rough. It is vital to avoid remaining bare foot and to moisturise your feet regularly. During winter, apply a thick moisturiser or a special cracked feet cream and wear socks while sleeping.
