Depending on where you live your experience of winter can vary. The weather can vary from slight chill to extremely cold temperatures to snow. Winter comes with its own share of skin issues like dryness, dandruff, cracked feets etc.

The skin becomes dry due to increased water loss from our skin and for some people it can lead to dandruff and acne breakouts due to compensatory oil production. Ofcourse, every skin behaves differently.

Here are some tips to help you take care of your skin in winters:


  1. Use a gentle cleanser
  2. Use lukewarm water to wash face
