Winter Care for All Types of Skin
The Winter Season which brings us the joy of fireside reading, snuggling close to the pillows wrapped from head to toe with a comfy quilt also hampers our body and hair with the cold winds. Overexposure to dry, cold wind damages the skin. As a result, the unprotected cells become inflamed, causing a tingling sensation on the skin, a problem that is particularly common among the elderly in cold season. However, a little care will keep the wintry troubles at bay. Dry skin suffers more than oily skin. However, the following measures are helpful for all types of skin.
