Imagine this! You’re on a winter date in a cozy and warm cafe that looks just out of a fairy tale. Everything seems to be going great until you run your hands through your hair, and dandruff flakes fall on your shoulder. Embarrassing, right?
While most of us love winter for its warmth, none of us like the winter skin care and hair care problems the cold weather brings along. From flaky and itchy skin to dry, brittle hair, winter poses many challenges for your skin and hair. Although it might seem there’s no escaping winter woes, following a few winter care tips can help you navigate the cold weather like a pro.
In this blog, we will share skin and hair care tips for winter and recommend some of our best winter care products to keep your skin and hair healthy and nourished in winter.
Winter Skin Care and Hair Care Tips
Winter skin and hair care doesn’t have to be complicated. Putting in some effort and giving your skin and hair the nourishment they need will do the job.
Here are the top 5 skin and hair care tips for winter:
Winter is the worst time to slack on your moisturising habits. While moisturising is essential throughout the year, its importance for winter cannot be stressed enough.
Using a rich moisturiser and body lotion right after you shower is a must to prevent dry skin in winter. After you bathe, water evaporates off your skin quickly, leaving it dry and dehydrated. Also, the skin absorbs moisture best when it is damp. Applying moisturiser on damp skin after a shower ensures that the skin remains hydrated for a long time.
Moisturising is not just key for maintaining healthy & glowing skin in winter. It is also crucial for your hair. Do not forget to use a nourishing, sulphate-free moisturiser after you shampoo your hair. Aroma Magic Cream Conditioner helps seal hair cuticles, preventing moisture loss. It hydrates hair, makes it easy to detangle, and reduces breakage.
Avoid hot water bath
While a hot shower might just be what you crave in the cold winter weather, we suggest not giving in to this temptation to keep your skin and hair healthy.
Hot water strips the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness and potential irritation. In winter, when the air is already dry, a hot water bath can make your skin more susceptible to flakiness, redness, and discomfort. It also opens your hair cuticles, allowing moisture to escape. This can leave your hair dry, frizzy, brittle, and more prone to breakage.
You can opt for lukewarm water to keep your skin and hair protected in winter.
Use natural winter care products
The trick to keeping your skin and hair nourished in winter is to incorporate natural beauty care products with a mild formula in your daily routine. Chemical-based products can dry your skin and hair out, leaving them more vulnerable to damage. Additionally, artificial fragrances and colours can be harsh on the skin and hair and may contribute to irritation, sensitivity, and increased dryness.
You must also be gentle with your skin and hair. Rubbing your skin too hard, over-shampooing, massaging your hair rigorously, over-exfoliating, etc., are all skin and hair care habits that must be avoided at all costs.
Look for hydrating ingredients
As the temperature goes low, the air becomes drier and less humid in winter. The dry, cold air sucks moisture from your skin and hair, resulting in dryness & dehydration. So, it is only natural to look for hydrating ingredients in winter skin care and hair care products.
Aroma Magic Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum is one of the best skincare products for hydrated skin in winter. It attracts moisture to your skin and gives it an intense boost of hydration. You can use hyaluronic serum and squalane serum together for moisturised & glowing skin in winter.

Invest in a humidifier
Buying a humidifier can be the best decision you make for your skin and hair in winter.
In winter, it is not just the outside dry air that strips your skin and hair of natural moisture. Indoor heating in your homes, offices, and other spaces can also dry your skin and hair out. Humidifiers can add moisture to the air inside closed spaces and are extremely helpful for combating dry skin and hair in winter.
