The prime challenge during the winter season is the lack of moisture in the air that leaves an itchy and lackluster skin. You cannot always depend on cosmetic products for that natural glow and glamor of your skin. Of course, they must be great but it is always a safe option to use the naturally occurring things for a good winter skincare. These natural things don’t give you that shine readily unlike the cosmetic products. But the radiance on your skin after regular use of natural stuff is something that people would notice in you. Some also may feel jealous!
Every time when you step out of your house especially in daytime, you cannot apply the cold creams or lotions. Because they would attract more dirt and dust leading to pimples and acne. Therefore, when you are at home, you have to use certain things on your skin so that the moisture is retained even when you go out in the chilly breeze.
Learn these tips and tricks to own that radiant skin in the winter season. And pile up your table with these easily available products.
Even our favorite icon Bebo aka Kareena Kapoor Khan also says in her interviews that she never skips applying honey on her face. Honey is a natural remedy to dry skin and gives an enviable glow to your skin. You can use it directly on your skin or mix it with other things like rose water and milk or yogurt. The consistency of honey is quite thick and thus it won’t be easy to apply it on your skin. Therefore, you have to dilute it with rose water or milk. Take half a spoon of honey and mix with half a spoon of milk and rose water. You would see a change in your skin tone and texture after a week! Before you notice yourself, people around you would notice that surely.
Winter is also the time when there are endless parties at your place, friends place, or at a pub. So, there would be a surplus of alcohol quite naturally. I am saying it from a personal experience that whiskey works wonderfully for your skin. I mixed 1 spoon of whiskey with 1 spoon of honey and rose water. The glow on my skin was to die for!
So, a jar of Dabur Honey or any other brand of honey is all you need for winter skincare.
Rose Water is essential for all kinds of seasons. It works as a great toner for the skin. As the makeup base also, you can apply some rose water on your skin. After cleansing your face and neck, apply some rose water. Or mix this rose with all the variety of face packs that are available in the market. You can mix this rose water with orange peel powder, rose powder, or sandalwood powder. The orange peel, rose, and sandalwood powder of Everyuth is really good and comes at a minimal rate. Simply take 1 spoon of these powders and mix with required rose water for that glow on your face. Make a habit of applying these face packs every alternate day.
Take sandalwood powder for yourself if you have a very oily skin. If you have a mixed skin, then take rose powder or orange peel powder.
So, Dabur Gulabari or another brand of rose water should be in your list of winter skincare shopping.
The presence of vitamin C in this fruit works wonders for skin and also fights diseases! So, while driving back home, stop by the fruit seller and take the juicy and refreshing oranges.

You get this fruit easily every season. Bananas are loaded with antioxidants, vitamin B6, potassium, magnesium, and other fibers. Eat bananas in your breakfast and also don’t forget to use it as a winter skincare mask.
The simplest and easiest way is to mash half a banana very well and mix with some rose water simply if you are in a hurry or running out of other things. Apply on your skin properly and let it sit for some time and then go for a good massage before rinsing.
When you have enough time to pamper yourself during the weekend, you can make a nice banana face pack with yogurt and honey that would cleanse and moisturize your skin beautifully. Take half or 1 banana and mash it properly. You may churn it in a blender for a smoother consistency. Take 1-2 spoons of yogurt, 1 spoon of Aloe Vera gel, and 1 spoon of honey and mix all these together. Apply nicely on your face, neck, and hands and leave for a good half an hour. Now, massage while rinsing.
Your skin would feel young, rejuvenated, and supple just like a baby!
Aloe Vera Gel
Many people think that planting an Aloe Vera plant would give easy access to Aloe Vera gel and commit the mistake of applying the gel directly. The raw Aloe Vera gel may lead to irritation on your skin as it contains latex. So, even when you are thinking to extract the gel directly from the plant, you can do so but only after discarding the latex. But to be on the safe side, you can buy a tube of Aloe Vera gel which is good too. The easiest and simplest procedure to follow all through the winter season is to apply Aloe Vera gel properly on your face and neck before going to sleep.
In the morning, cleanse your face first with cleansing milk and then rinse with water. Now you can apply an Aloe Vera gel face pack. Take 1 spoon of turmeric powder, 1 spoon of milk, half spoon of honey, half spoon of rose water, and half spoon of Aloe Vera gel. You can do this once every week.
Another simple formula is to take half spoon each of Aloe Vera gel, honey, and rose water. The trick is to mix all these three and give a nice massage to your face and neck for at least 5 minutes. You may go for a shower if you are in a hurry or let the pack stay on your face for another 10 minutes after massage.
So, the Patanjali Aloe Vera Gel comes at only 80 bucks and that can be your best friend for winter skincare.
