How Do I Care My Skin In Winter
Protect The Oil
Natural skin oil is essential to your skin to retrain your skin from getting dry. When your skin gets exposed to winter breezes your skin gets cold and dry rapidly.

Always wear clothes that cover your hands, mouth, nose especially if the airstream is blowy.
Having a glow on your face makes you look attractive. Exfoliating your skin once a week or every two weeks will eliminate the dead cells as well as foreign bacteria from your skin to keep it healthy. Pamper your skin in winter with some leave-on the mask or peels which give you younger looking skin.
Licking lips in winter to keep them wet and hydrated will make your lips worst. You can escape the discomfort of chapped lips in winter with little hands-on care. Dry air that passes through your mouth carrying away the natural moisture from your body is the main cause of chapped lips. Put Vaseline on lips each time you leave your house. This way you prevent yourself from chappy lips. If you have a habit of giving access to foreign insects in your mouth while sleeping (sleeping with mouth open) that makes your lips more chappy, in this case, applying Vaseline before bed is recommended too. Hydrated lips are less prone to get chappy, carrying your Vaseline or whatever lip balm you use along with you is the best thing.
