Bangalore, November 15, 2023: As the winter chill sets in, Hairline International Hair & Skin Clinic, a renowned name in dermatology and trichology, provides expert tips to tackle common skin and hair issues exacerbated during the colder months.
The winter season poses unique challenges to maintaining healthy skin, as the decrease in filaggrin, a vital skin protein, combined with the dry, cold weather and low humidity, can lead to dehydration. Dr. Kala Vimal, Trichologist and Dermatologist at Hairline International emphasizes the importance of a proactive approach to winter care.
Winter Skin Care Tips:
1. Moisturize Strategically: Opt for a hydrating moisturizer with ingredients like hyaluronic acid or lactic acid. Apply immediately after a bath to lock in moisture.
2. Gentle Cleansing: Use lukewarm water for showers and choose mild, hydrating, fragrance-free soaps and body washes. Avoid scrubbing to prevent further dryness.
3. Sunscreen Protection: Despite cloud cover, UV rays can still harm the skin. Apply sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to protect against sunburn and premature aging.
4. Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to maintain skin hydration from the inside out.
5. Mindful Facewash: Opt for a non-foaming, mild face wash to prevent excessive dryness.
Winter Hair Care Tips:
1. Nourish from Within: Maintain a nutritious diet to support healthy hair.
2. Gentle Cleansing: Use a mild shampoo and conditioner at least twice a week to combat dryness.
3. Air-Dry Hair: Allow wet hair to dry naturally, avoiding immediate blow-drying.
4. Wide-Tooth Comb: Use a wide-tooth comb to prevent breakage and damage.
5. Protective Measures: Wear a headscarf or hat when outdoors to shield hair from harsh weather conditions.
6. Lukewarm Headwash: Use lukewarm water for headwash to prevent dry and frizzy hair.
7. Hair Serums and Oiling: Incorporate a good hair serum into your routine and indulge in weekly oiling sessions for added nourishment.
Dr. Kala Vimal, Trichologist and Dermatologist at Hairline International Hair & Skin Clinic, emphasizes, “Winter demands special attention to skincare and haircare. Hydration and protection from external elements are key. Following these tips can help maintain healthy skin and luscious hair throughout the season.”
