December brings with it so many reasons to celebrate – the holidays and festivities, and for some of us winter travels. While we rejoice over the dwindling heat and beginning of the cooler winter months, these also bring with them a whole array of skincare concerns that leave us feeling a bit hassled.
The chilly weather often drains the skin of its natural moisture and oils causing trans epidermal water loss. This leaves your skin feeling rough, dry, and stretchy, making travel to colder regions an absolute nightmare! “The skin is like a sieve, which is constantly losing and gaining moisture depending on a number of conditions – the pollution, weather and diet to name a few. In the winters, due to the drop-in temperatures, the skin tends to lose moisture, which leads to that dry and itchy feeling”, says celebrity dermatologist, Dr. Aparna Santhanam.
So, this winter, whether you are heading out for a long weekend or planning a long holiday – carry these beauty must-haves in your winter survival kit for flawless ‘vacation-skin’.
