With the arrival of winter, your skin is the first to respond to the weather. Make sure you’re moisturizing day and night, and especially when you step out of the shower to keep your skin beautiful in this weather-weird month.
As the weather changes, our skin starts becoming parched, this is a result of the strong heat that sucks our skin dry of any moisture, and if there is one thing that worries us, it’s dry, parched, scratchy skin. Why give in to that cycle when you can be rid of all your skincare worries with a few pumps of Vaseline lotion. Step into winter wonderland with Vaseline this season: picture soft, hydrated and hassle-free skin. With their special moisture locks with droplets of petroleum jelly, these lotions absorb easily and keep skin hydrated.
Can’t find the time to moisturize?
Keep a bottle of Vaseline Intensive Care at work, a travel bottle in your purse and one on your dressing table so you’re reminded to moisturize all day. Taking care of your skin is just as important as taking care of your face; just as you go in for a regular facial, remember to exfoliate your skin after the summer is over by treating yourself to a body scrub, and ensure you use body lotion all over your body to prevent any irritation. Body scrubs are easy to make at home, and will remove the dead skin and in-grown hairs and the lotion will help lock in moisture. Remember not to ignore 90% of your body by only going for a facial!
Make it a ritual to always exfoliate as you shower, moisturize as soon as you are done so the skin soaks it in, and to keep moisturizing throughout the day.
Stay beautiful with happy, moisturized skin!
Age is just a number: Tips for women with mature skin
Don’t let fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and crow’s feet dull your shine. We’ve outlined the five basic changes you need to make in your life today for healthy, youthful looking skin.
Use an egg white mask
Egg white is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, and zinc, making it a tried and tested anti-aging beauty trick. It is known to tighten the pores leaving your skin firm and smooth. Take a teaspoon of honey and one raw egg (just the white – no yolk), and mix it till you have a smooth and consistent texture. Spread this mask onto your face and neck and relax for fifteen minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm water and pat your skin dry with a clean towel.
Invest in a good anti-aging day cream
After the age of 25, your skin needs a bit more TLC. Invest in a good day moisturizer with anti-aging properties. Try Pond’s Age Miracle for a hydration boost and to prevent fine lines and wrinkles before time.
Use a cream blush and highlighter
Nothing says youthful glow than a flush across the cheeks and that lit-from-within glow. When you go makeup shopping and take your time to pick what really suits your skin. Mature skin loses its elasticity so it’s best to pick cream blush or strobe cream to prevent a dry and cakey appearance.

Massage your face
A nighttime skin regimen may seem trivial but the results will work wonders in the long run. Use a cleanser or oil and massage your face upwards to tighten loose skin and give your face a lifted look. Massaging helps exercise your face muscles and stops them from drooping. Make sure your cleanser or oil has a good dose of Vitamin C so that you can also boost collagen production while you massage your face.
Summer skincare regime in under Rs. 1,000
- Cleanse regularly
With sunny season going SPARTA on our skin it is necessary to have a facewash in your beauty regime that only removes oil from your face but also gives deep cleansing to your pores. Our two favourite this season are Pond’s White Beauty Facewash for everyday use and Pond’s Pure White with Activated Charcoal for that deep cleaning people with trouble skin really need on a regular basis.
- Moisturise your hair
You’d be surprised just how much cotton pillowcases and air-conditioning damages your hair. If you’re on a budget, choose a shampoo that not only cleanses your scalp, but also provides moisture to your hair like Dove Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo.
- Give your body some TLC
Summer is the season when your body needs you the most from inside and out. Perspiration, body odour and open pores can all lead to irritated, angry skin. Toss out drying soaps and go for something more moisturizing and fragrant like Lux Moisturising Soft Touch Bodywash that leaves a subtle, rosey scent on your skin, making you feel like a luxurious queen for hours.
- Embrace the BB cream life
Nothing irritates your skin more in summers that heavy makeup that is loaded with all sorts of wack stuff that is not all-that-great for your skin. Go easy, breezy and flawless this summer with Fair & Lovely BB Cream that is bursting with the goodness of micro vitamins that improve the overall health of your skin and SPF 15+ that acts as a shield between you and the big blazing yellow guy in the sky.
