Winter can really mess up your skin, hair and everything else! The cold dry air will make your skin dry and hair brittle. We tried to look up on internet for some tips in which products should be used during winter compared to summer. Surprisingly almost every product you are or are not using should be swapped accordingly to the weather. Now if you are more of a low maintenance girl like we are, try to be more creative. For example coconut oil can be used for quite a few body parts, instead of buying moisturisers for every single part of your body. Following is a summary of the tips from the article.

If you only make one change to your skin-care routine, switch out your face wash. It sounds like a little thing, but “swapping a foaming cleanser for a creamy one is often all it takes to help skin adjust to colder, drier weather,” says Joshua Zeichner, the director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.
As a general rule, creams hydrate better than lotions because the ingredients that make them creamy also form a physical barrier that traps moisture in skin.
The same creamier-is-better rule applies to eye cream. Bonus: Since the skin around the eyes is thin, the extra hydration really plumps up fine lines.
Using a moisturizing body wash (like Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash) is obviously a good idea. It sounds gross, but if you also stop sudsing up areas that don’t need it every day (like your arms, legs, and stomach), they’ll be even less likely to dry out.
Since body moisturizer a) only works if you use it and b) is mind-numbingly boring to put on, you might as well find one that smells so good, you’ll actually look forward to applying it. Keep an eye out for body butters, especially ones that are so rich you can turn the tub upside down without any cream falling out—perfect for rehabbing dry patches.
Your hair isn’t puffy now that summer is over (yay!) but “with less moisture in the air, it’s probably limp and staticky,” says Matt Fugate, a hairstylist at Sally Hershberger Downtown in New York City. Replace your usual defrizzer with a hair oil that “smooths the hair without giving you a drowned-rat look. Rub a few drops through the ends when they’re wet and on unruly spots after they’re dry.”
