Winter is here but that doesn’t mean your oily skin doesn’t need the same amount of care anymore. The cold winter months are known to be drying but when it comes to oily skin, it can still give you pretty much the same trouble it does during the summers. In fact, it may even require you to take more care of it to ensure it is properly nourished.

Dry skin occurs when skin doesn’t retain sufficient moisture — for example, because of frequent bathing, use of harsh soaps, aging, or certain medical conditions. Wintertime poses a special problem because the humidity is low both outdoors and indoors, and the water content in the outermost layer of skin tends to reflect the level of humidity around it.

Apart from regularly washing and moisturising your face, scrubbing and masking are also crucial to get rid of dead cells, grime, and provide the much-needed hydration.

Here are some natural face-packs that you should definitely apply on your skin to look radiant during this chilly weather:

1. Milk and Honey- Milk cream or malai is one of the best natural moisturizing creams that you can apply to your skin to make it supple and soft. Trust honey to clear your skin off the bacteria that are responsible for the growth of pimples and acne on your face. All you need to do is to take a tablespoon each of milk cream and honey in a bowl and mix them well. Apply the mixture on your face and skin and leave it for about 15 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water. Pat dry your skin and see the result; your skin will feel moisturized like never before.

2. Honey and Rose Water- This is quite a popular winter face pack for glowing skin. Given that the skin can get really dry during this season, this pack with honey helps to nourish the skin from the inner layers and bring in the glow and radiance in no time. Take one tablespoon of honey and rose water and mix properly. Apply this pack on the face and neck. Leave it on to dry for 10 minutes. Once dry, wash it off with lukewarm water. Honey is a natural moisturizer for the skin and rose water tones the skin. It is quick, easy, and a blessing for dry and chapped skin. It is the best face pack for winter.

3. Cocoa Butter and Olive Oil- Nourish your skin with the goodness of olive oil and cocoa butter for an amazing moisturizer. A dash of ginger paste will help remove the excess dirt off the skin. Make a paste of one tablespoon each of cocoa butter and olive oil and a half teaspoon of ginger paste and apply it on your skin, especially face and neck and leave it for 15-20 minutes, before washing it off with lukewarm water.

4. Papaya and Raw Milk- Papaya is power-packed with essential nutrients and minerals that make your skin supple and soft. Milk, on the other hand, is rich in vitamin E, which adds moisture to dry and dull skin. All you need to do is to take half-ripe papaya that is cut into pieces and raw milk; mash it with a fork and make a puree with a coarse texture. Apply the pack on your face and neck and leave it until it becomes dry and wash it off with water.

5. Aloe Vera and Honey- If you have been complaining of dry and dull skin, bring aloe vera and honey to your rescue. This face pack works best to ensure hydration. All you need to do is take about 8-10 drops of honey and one teaspoon of aloe vera gel and blend them between your palms. Now apply and rub the mixture on your face in circular motions for at least 15 minutes and leave it overnight. Wash your face the next day and you will find your face extremely soft and lively.

What are you waiting for? It’s time to welcome that glowing and supple skin of yours.
