Winter is here to uplift our moods and spirits. It’s time to enjoy the beautiful cool breeze and the enchanting beauty of the evening sky. Although, the season is doing wonders to add to our joys, it doesn’t come without its share of winter woes.
If anyone were asked to describe the skin during the season in one word, the response would undoubtedly be ‘DRY.’ The cold temperature combined with the unpredictable heat has a stressful effect on the skin. The result being dead skin cells making the skin look dull and lifeless.
But, we dearly love winter in spite of all its flaws. And there’s no way we’d let anything take that away from us. Besides, when it comes to skin care, there isn’t a single problem #Styleshaala can’t solve. So, sit back in your easy chair while we help you with your instant skin treatment in the easiest manner.
- Oats (2 tsp)
Oatmeal is to the skin what rain is to the farmers. Oatmeal is a natural moisturizer, antioxidant, cleansing agent and the mildest ingredient for the skin. This is precisely the reason it is many a times used in the preparation of soap. It also helps in the treatment of dry skin and acne.
- Milk (5 tbsp)
Milk has anti-aging and skin lightening properties. It plays a huge role in keeping the skin youthful and smooth.
- Mix the ingredients
Mixture: Take the ingredients in a bowl and mix it.
Milk quantity: Add the milk slowly while stirring the mixture. Avoid adding too much milk to the mixture.
Paste texture: The paste will be like a face scrub. Avoid the paste from getting very thin. The oat flakes will act as cleansing agents for the skin.
- Apply the Paste:
Application Technique: Apply the paste evenly across the face. Keep your eyes closed and your hair tied back while you evenly spread the scrub across your face.
Massage: Gently massage the face to allow the ingredients to be absorbed into the deep pores of the skin. This will help get rid of the dead skin cells.
- Leave the Paste on
Activity Time: Leave the paste on for 10 minutes. Let the pack dry till it can wither off the skin.
- Remove the Paste
Paper towel: Soak a paper towel in water. Use the wet paper towel to remove the paste.
Technique: Move the towel gently across the face. Do not rub the towel harshly across the face to avoid rashes. Keep using the towel to wipe the face till the flakes have been removed.
IMPORTANT #STYLESHAALA TIPS
- Crush the oat flakes
The oat flakes can be crushed before adding milk. This will give a thicker paste and will be easier to apply on the skin.
- Wash your face
If the stickiness of the scrub still exists, wash your face with water.
- Do not use soap for a while
Do not wash your face with soap for 30 minutes after applying the scrub. Washing the face will cause the ingredients to be washed away completely. Thus, the effect will wear off not giving maximum results.
- Test the paste
An inevitable thing to do to avoid any sort of reaction to the skin. Apply the paste on a part of the arm and leave it on for 10 minutes before washing it off.
Use this effective and easy remedy to attain the best results for your skin. The scrub also acts as a natural moisturizer keeping your skin smooth and safe during winters. We told you we love winters. Consider this remedy as a winter gift from us to you.
