How can one take care of their skin during this time of the year?
One must exfoliate the skin regularly, drink lots of water and use natural ingredientsrich products instead of harsh chemicals. Repair your nails, skin and hair with natural oils like coconut, olive, jojoba oils and use natural mists to hydrate the skin. Dry winds and low humidity levels draw moisture away from the skin. Natural oils like almond oil, coconut oil, and olive oil are the best to moisturise your skin.

What is the essential skincare routine one must follow?
Most people follow cleansing, toning and moisturising. But before building any routine most important thing is to know your skin type. Follow a night-time skincare routine along with some healthy sleep. At night, your skin switches from ‘protect’ mode to ‘repair’ mode. Removing makeup, washing your face and moisturising it, is the simplest skincare routine everyone can follow.
