Five Important Takeaways to Keep Your Skin Healthy During Winters

Keep Your Skin Healthy During Winters By Vibhu & Me
Winter skin is not an easy to go with thing for many of us. As the temperature goes down it also takes away the humidity of environment which creates an atmosphere making our skin dry. This dryness if not treated well can make the skin dull, rough and flaky too. Also, if the cure to dryness for some people with a sensitive skin may become reason for irritating pimples or itchiness. For many people, applying moisturizer on skin is not that helpful as it is supposed to be. Reason may be their extra dry skin or other.

Here are five very important and very easy ways all of us should adopt to avoid winters from being harsh on our supple skin:
  1. Avoid hot water washing: Yes most of us start our day with washing our face in the morning or taking a bath, it is very important to ensure the water used for washing your skin is not much warmer. Using just lukewarm water is just perfect as the use of chilling regular water is also something that should be avoided. Very warm water leaves skin even dry and causes roughness of skin.
  2. Drink plenty of water to keep skin hydrated: Right hydration is not possible from merely oiling and greasing the skin from outside, it also requires right hydration from inside. When you drink sufficient water the skin gets more genuine reasons to remain soft and supple.
  3. Combination of sunbath and SPF is great: While most of us are tested lacking vitamin D in their body, winters are the only season when taking a sunbath is soothing. While at one hand it provides relaxation from chilling winds, it helps in boosting the level of vitamin D for our body. However, the winter sun is also as harmful as the sun during summers as long as our skin is concerned. The UV rays of sun are effective in winters too and may cause tanning on skin. So, it is good to apply a moisturizer with SPF when you are going out in the sun for more than 15 minutes.
  4. Choose right time for moisturizing: Applying moisturizer on your body or face is ideal when you apply it after bathing or washing your face. The pores on skin remain open for some time after washing it, thus, applying moisturizer at this time heals the skin from inside and provides longer hydration, glow and softness than otherwise. In the same way, it is very good to apply moisturizer on skin in the night before going to bed. The skin is in relax mode during night when you are hardly exposed to any pollution or work. It also goes deep into the skin and provides better results.  
  5. Eat right in winters too: A balanced diet is always important because what you eat gets reflected on your skin. Unhealthy junk food may cause tired face or even pimples while balanced healthy diet gives a natural glow on skin. To ensure a balanced diet, including fruits and salads into it. Vitamin C intake is important for natural glowing skin and all day energy, so plan your diet accordingly. Taking nuts all through this season is very good for all types of healthy while juices and milk are also part of good diet. If you are non-vegetarian include fish and eggs in your diet. 
Just the five of these are going to help your winter skin case easy and will surely make your winters breezy.

#TheWomanThatIAm #RRxMM I am not the woman who..

I am not the mother who..
I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was barely 2 months old. I am not the mother who witnessed each of my kid's milestones, I got to know them when being told. I am not the mother who could tell breastfeeding stories, my child is a formula-fed gold. I am not the mother who keeps the house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and go overbold. I am not the mother who manages a detailed list for parenting chores, I often keep my to-dos on hold. I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and cold.
ALSO I am a doting mother who tries to juggle between family and work every other minute.  I am a mother who watches silly cartoons with my boy.  I am a mother who repeatedly tells the same story every night.  I am a mother who cooks my son's favorite food every week.  And I am also a mother who is the closest person in my son's life!

My 'Invisible' Accomplishments #DecadeHop #RRxMM

As we entered 2020, through this post I am trying to contemplate the coolest, most daring, and most significant feats of my life during the last decade. Now the more I regress my memory, the more I feel there are two types of achievements or accomplishments that I can ponder upon; Visible and Invisible. Visible ones are those that I can count on my finger like a parrot and others can nod also. I got specs on, married to a not-so-romantic man, produced a baby, started writing and added good 17 kgs in my body volume (I was 50 in 2011). However, there are many invisible accomplishments too that either I know silently or very few can assert.

From 2011 to 2019, Who am I now

From a coy soul to now an outspoken woman, the trek was not easy. I achieved it. From being a no-makeup girl to now a lipstick swatches observer, the transition was tough. But it happened. And from being a sweet hater to now a sweet lover, the change was mysterious yet occurred. And now I can die for Gulab Jamuns. And I…

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…
