Winter Dress Code
First of all, it is needless to mention about the dress code that you must follow during winters. It is very obvious that one must only wear winter clothes when the weather is extremely freezing. Wearing two three layers extra is advisable and it will protect your skin as well as health from the adverse weather conditions.
Use clean moisturizers and lotions

It is recommended that stocking up your moisturizers, body creams and body lotions before the winter starts will help you in following a proper winter skincare routine. Use thick creams on your body which is locked in your skin for long time, probably till the time you take your next shower. Once you are done with your shower, apply the winter creams immediately. Application of body oils is also a good idea.
Don’t forget your lip balm
Lip balms are the next important thing that you must never compromise on especially during winters. Our lips are the most delicate as well as sensitive part of our body which is totally exposed to harsh weather and climatic conditions. Worst temperatures can dry your lips and also make it appear cracked and dirty.
Keep your lips moisturized and hydrated with a good quality lip balm which consists of SPF and vitamin E. Lip balms are not to be shared with other people because it can spread diseases and germs.

Winters require us to stay hydrated always. Some people think drinking water is not so required during cold weathers. If you think so, you are wrong. Drinking enough water during winters is as important as drinking water during summers.

Dryness can attack your foot and hands (palms) as well. Take care of your sensitive areas with a good quality hand cream as well as foot cream which will help in keeping your hands and foot moisturized and nourished for the whole day.
