Your skin is constantly exposed to the varying weather conditions and it is essential to undertake preventive measures so that it is protected sufficiently. Dry skin which is a common feature of the harsh winters is exasperating and the flakiness that occurs can be quite embarrassing at times.
Some of the following points which act as a protective shield to your skin should always be kept in mind during winter times.
Avoid Hot Water Showers
It is essential to resist the temptation of a long hot water shower bath as that destroys the lipid barriers in the skin and robs it of moisture. It is best to go for a quick warm water shower bath.
Regular Use of Moisturizers
Use of moisturizers for the hands and legs besides the face is a must as that helps to lessen the irritation caused due to dry skin. Water and glycerin based creams help to retain the moisture into the skin and promote necessary repair work. Grease, oil and fragrance free moisturizers are the best picks during this period. The use of moisturizers should be done twice, once at the start of the day and the second while retiring at night.
Daily Protection From Sun
The winter sun is just as harsh as the summer and it is essential to use moisturizers with SPF so that the harmful UVA and UVB rays do not damage your skin. Do not get fooled by cloudy weather as the harmful sun’s rays do penetrate at those times too.
Wear Protective Gear
All winter clothes like gloves, cardigans, thick socks and scarves need to be worn without fail as they protect the skin from getting dry and itchy. You should never step outdoors without your protective clothing. The winter clothes should be soft and allow for air to flow in and out so that they do not cause any discomfort.
Drink Lots of Water
It is wrong to associate drinking plenty of water only with the summers; you need to drink the same amount of water during the winter season too. This helps in flushing out the toxins from your body and ensures that skin remains moisturized. All caffeine addicts have to bear in mind that they have to combat the diuretic effects of their favorite beverages with more water.
Cleanliness of Nails
Brittleness of nails can be tackled through the use of Vaseline, petroleum jelly etc. The nails have to be regularly cut and kept short so as to prevent the influx of fungus.
Your lips are the most sensitive part of your face and the harsh winter weather can cause great damage if they are not cared for properly. In order to prevent cracking of lips it is advisable to use petroleum jelly based lip balms as they are most effective.
The cold, harsh winter weather can wreck havoc to your skin and leave it dry and flaky. It is essential to start on the protective measures from the fall itself so that by the time winter sets in your body is fully geared to meet its onslaught.

Yoga as a form of stress buster has gained popularity in recent times. More and more people are going for a yoga holiday including families. The emphasis on the yoga techniques differs depending upon your requirement.
Types Of Yoga Holidays
If you want to follow yoga in its purest form there are yoga retreats catering to your need. However, there are some who want a family vacation included too and in such cases, yoga assumes a slightly lesser emphasis and revolves around your vacation schedule. These are the ‘Beyond Yoga’ retreats where you get the best of both worlds; a family holiday as well as yoga.
How Do You Prepare For A Yoga Holiday?
Your body is going to undergo some change in its daily routine during the length of your yoga holiday. It is essential to acclimatize your body to this change by incorporating the following habits at least a fortnight before your holiday.
- Get Introduced To Basic Yoga
It is essential to get a basic knowledge of yoga through a few classes wherein you learn what yoga is all about and are familiarized with the key poses. You get aware of the class format and terminology used.
You need to be clear on the objectives of your trip as to whether it is to de-stress, lose weight, learn something new, relieve specific aches and pains etc. If you have clarity in your aims then the yoga trainer can help you better.
- Lessen Dependence On Technology
You need to be off your mobile devices, laptops during the tenure of your stay at the yoga retreat. Prepare yourself mentally to be cut off from your business world for a while.
Your days at the yoga retreat will entail a change in your diet and hence it is better if you let your body get used to the type of food that will have to be eaten. Hence, consume light foods which are easily digestible and do not weigh you down and reduce intake of processed foods, alcohol, refined food items etc.
What Are Benefits Of Your Yoga Holiday?
Yoga offers two fold benefits to you; physical benefits and psychological benefits. Both are detailed below:
The secondary muscles and joints of your body are targeted in yoga which increases their flexibility; for eg, muscles of calves, hamstrings, back, hips and shoulders. The various yoga postures lead to a strengthening of the core as well as peripheral limbs.
The yoga postures involve a lot of stretching of muscles and this leads to enhancement of muscle tone. The deep breathing exercises give a good workout to the lungs enhancing cardiovascular performance.
Spinal alignment and relief from back aches caused due to the sedentary lifestyles are the greatest advantages of yoga.
Yoga involves concentration while doing the various postures with the mind being trained to remove all irrelevant thoughts from it. Seasoned yoga practitioners are able to detach their mind from the effects of external stimuli and achieve a sense of oneness with Universe. In this process, you automatically get de-stressed.
The body is stretched to its limits by a repetitive working of the relevant yoga postures. At the same time, your breath has to complement the postures and the emphasis on deep breathing helps to calm the mind and improve its alertness.
Summarizing; get acquainted and trained in the yoga postures from a certified trainer and reap the benefits of this ancient form of fitness technique.
