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.

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:
How you are p…

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…
