Use Lukewarm Water Only!
It is very intriguing to go for hot showers when the temperature is dipping. But have you ever realized the havoc it could wreak on your skin? If you love your skin, avoid them altogether. Instead, use lukewarm water to shower and wash your face. Hot showers dry your skin quickly, and if you do not moisturize it immediately, your skin can develop cracks and winter eczema.

This will help keep the moisture barrier intact and prevent dryness.

If you have acne or breakouts, use products containing ceramides, hyaluronic acid, hydration serums, and glycerin to help in repairing the moisture barrier of your skin.
Avoid masks and peels, astringent lotions, and any product that contains alcohol as they make your skin dry during the winter.
