Any skin type needs special attention during winter, especially if you have dry skin you need to pay extra attention.

Moisturise daily for healthy skin:
If you have dry skin, you know that the cold wind tends to irritate your skin more and leave flaky patches on your legs and arms.

If you are broke, make your DIY lip balm at home, grab a T spoon of ghee and spread it evenly across your lips; reapply when dry. You can also use Vitamin E oil or Coconut Oil for relief from chapped lips in winter.
Winter lip care:
Avoid licking your lips and biting the flesh on your lip’s surface to allow the lips to rejuvenate. Avoid lipsticks; instead, you can use natural rose petals or beetroot to colour your lips. Replacing chemical lipsticks with natural alternatives will help you reduce the discolouration in your lips.
Hot oil for dry dandruff:

Feet care essentials:

Say no to summer skincare products:
