Hello Rashi.

No matter the type of skin, the skin tends to get dry during winter, especially overnight.

It's very important to moisturize your skin based on your skin type.

First, identify if your facial skin is oily/dry/normal.

Then identify if your body skin is oily/ dry.

Do the following :

1. FOR DRY SKIN (FACE) :
Wash your face with normal - cold water.
Pat dry.
Apply a mixture of coconut oil & sesame oil all over the face while massaging it in a circular motion.

2. FOR DRY BODY SKIN :
COCONUT OIL
is the best moisturizer!

3. FOR OILY/ ACNE PRONE SKIN :
Wash your face, pat dry.
Give an ice massage for 2- 5 minutes.
Then apply 1- 2 tablespoons of sesame oil and massage the face in a circular motion.

4. FOR BODY SKIN (OILY) :
Wash & apply coconut oil sesame oil all over the body.

Also, a regular water consumption of a minimum of 1 - 2 litres during winters is very important for skin hydration.

Hope this helps :)

Hello Rashi,

Dry skin is skin that lacks moisture in the outer layer. If left untreated, dry skin can crack and become infected. Keeping dry skin moisturized is extremely important.
There are various ways to keep the skin moisturized. 

Apply coconut oil 
Coconut oil is a natural oil that works well to treat the dry skin. Coconut oil is as effective and safe as petroleum jelly for treating dry skin. It is found to increase the number of lipids on the surface of the skin and improve skin hydration. 

Oatmeal bath
Oatmeal is another natural ingredient that can help to treat dry skin. Adding powdered oatmeal to a bath or using creams that contain oatmeal may help to relieve dry skin.

Aloe vera
Aloe vera gel may help to relieve the dry skin. A person with dry skin on their hands and feet can apply aloe vera jel and cover the affected area with socks and gloves. You can do this at night before going to bed and leave the jel overnight. 

Drink water
It is very important to be hydrated internally also. Drink a lot of water or liquids during the day to be hydrated.

Thank you
