Daily care for dry skin in winter
First thing on your routine should be cleansing. Most of us use some kind of make-up on our skin, so cleansing is very essential. Aloe vera cleanser with a lemon base is the best. Aloe vera is ideal for rehydrating the skin. The cleanser must be massaged gently, into the skin, paying particular attention to the creases of the nose under the chin, neck and ear lobes.
Second step is toning of the skin, toning removes the last stages of cleanser and dissolves dirt. It is good if you use skin toning lotion. A skin tonic, with mint and honey base would be excellent for delicate & parched skin. Skin tonic braces the skin and tightens the pores, especially under the eyes and on the jaw line.
Third step is nourishing the skin, if you want to prevent it from dryness. Every night, a nourishing cream with preferably an orange base, should be used. If you feelthat your skin is very dry, use a second application. A nourishing cream with vitamin E would work wonders. Supplying moisture to the skin by use of suitable cosmetic aids is the only way to prevent the skin from drying up.
