Every season brings along its own sets of challenges. And we are not just talking about dealing with heat waves in summer, an army of mosquitoes in monsoon, or a constantly runny nose in winter.

Changes in temperature, humidity levels, and other environmental factors can impact your skin as well. While you might have to deal with excessively greasy skin and frequent acne breakouts in summer, fungal and bacterial skin infections are very common in the rainy season. And with the days getting shorter in winter, the list of skin problems starts getting bigger with each passing day.

In winter, the weather is dry and less humid and can strip the skin’s natural moisture, resulting in dry and flaky skin. But alas, the list of winter skin problems does not end with dryness. There are many other skin issues you need to protect your skin from. Don’t panic! Instead, read this blog to learn about the best solution for dry skin and other common winter skin issues.

Winter Skin Care: Best Solutions for Dry Skin & Other Problems

Here’s a list of 5 common skin problems in winter and the best solutions to treat them naturally:

  • Dryness
    Dryness is one of the most common winter skin problems. The lack of moisture in the air, the use of indoor heating systems, and hot shower baths are a few factors that contribute to winter dryness.

    When dry, the skin can appear flaky, rough, and tight. It can also feel rough and make your fine lines more visible. If not taken care of, dry skin can result in extreme skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

    The best way to prevent dry and flaky skin in winter is to keep yourself hydrated from the inside out. Drink lots of water and use Aroma Magic Almond Moisturising Lotion to fulfill your skin’s hydration needs. Our Almond Moisturising Lotion has a rich formula that helps seal the moisture in your skin and keeps it soft and supple.

    We also recommend using lukewarm water instead of hot water for bathing. Hot showers can damage the skin’s protective barrier and are a major cause of dry and dehydrated skin.

  • Rough, Scaly Elbows
    The cold and dry winter weather and indoor heating systems can also make your knees, elbow, and other high-pressure joints rough, dry, and scaly. Dead skin cells are also a significant cause of dry and flaky skin around the elbows.

    Exfoliate your skin once a week with Coffee Bean Scrub to get rid of dead skin cells and keep your elbows soft and smooth. It is also a good idea to keep your elbows moisturised. You can use Aroma Magic Cold Cream to keep your elbows and knees hydrated.

  • Chapped Lips
    The skin on the lips is more delicate than the skin on the rest of your face because of the lack of oil glands. Sebum acts as a protective barrier for the skin and helps keep it moisturised. In the absence of sebaceous glands, the skin on the lips becomes more susceptible to moisture loss during winter, leaving them dry, cracked, and chapped. In severe cases, chapped lips can start peeling and cause discomfort.

    While you may not have realised, the most effective & natural solution to chapped lips is probably kept at your home already. We are talking about coconut oil. The moisturising properties of coconut oil make it an excellent treatment for dry, chapped lips.

    You can use coconut oil as a lip balm by simply applying a few drops on your lips. You can also use it as an overnight lip mask. Mix coconut oil with honey in a 1:1 ratio, and apply it on your lips. Leave it overnight and rinse off in the morning.

  • Cracked Heels
    With all the focus on protecting your face against the harsh cold weather, people often forget to take care of their feet which lie hidden in boots and socks. This can result in rough and cracked heels.

    You must also note that the soles of the feet lack sebaceous glands and are more prone to getting dry. So, you need to give them extra love & care to keep them soft and moisturised in winter.

    Aroma Magic Foot Cream
    is a natural foot cream enriched with the goodness of aloe vera, glycerine, and essential oils. Apply this foot cream after bathing and at bedtime to keep your skin hydrated and moisturised. It helps heal cracks and also prevents foot odour.

    You should also do a pedicure once a month. Exfoliation is an important step in a pedicure that helps remove dead skin cells and keeps the feet soft & smooth.

  • Dry, Chapped Nose
    The lack of humidity in the air can damage the inner lining of your nose, causing dryness and irritation. In extreme cases, dryness can also result in nose bleeding.

    Steam inhalation is one of the best home remedies for treating dry nasal passages. Inhaling the moist and warm steam can relieve a dry nose and discomfort. You can add a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil to the water for better results.
