The most challenging time of the year when our skin needs extra-extra care is the dry winter season. Most of my time goes in reapplying moisturiser on my skin to keep it at least moistened, if not hydrated. The challenge is to find a moisturiser which lasts longer on your skin, keeping your skin hydrated at all times.
And that’s when, while passing through aisles of body lotions, I came across the bottle of Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion. I won’t lie, but ever since then, I have been using this Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion extensively to moisturize my skin on a daily basis. The lotion spreads smoothly on my skin and just 2-3 squeezes are enough to moisturize my hands and feet entirely.
The Hydra-Nutri balance and the goodness of Cocoa Butter and Wheat Germ ensure deep hydration for extra dry skin. I use the lotion twice daily, so we are looking at a window of at least 12 hours hydration benefits. The fragrance is that of chocolate which makes me feel divine. The fragrance diminishes to a minimal note in an hour, and I absolutely love smelling of cocoa strongly in the initial stage of application.
Moisturizing your skin regularly goes a long way in keeping your skin healthy and hydrated throughout the cold season, but there are some other factors too that helps in maintaining the peace of healthy looking skin permanently.
BATHE ON A TIMER

Who doesn’t love having a long hot bath during the winter season? At least I look up to a calming hot shower daily to unwind from the clutter of woolen layering throughout the day. Do not stay under the hot shower or inside a bathtub for more than 4-5 minutes as a longer bath strips the skin of its natural oils leaving the surface dry and itchy.
MOISTURIZE ASAP POST A BATH
The hot water bath not only dries up the natural oils of your skin, but also leaves the skin pores open and dry for a while. This is the best time to replenish the lost hydration by applying a moisturiser.
Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion not only penetrates deep inside the pores, locking the openings, but also enhances the skin texture and provides elasticity to the skin.
HAVE A LIQUID DIET

Liquid diet comprising of warm water, green tea, warm soups and freshly blended seasonal fruit juices helps in keeping you hydrated from the inside. The liquid diet ensures moisturization from the inside, which automatically enhances the quality of your skin from the outside. The liquid diet also keeps you fit and less lazy, as opposed to eating fatty foods during the season and feeling lethargic at all times.
READ THE INGREDIENTS
It is really important that you read the ingredients of products that you buy to know how well it will work on your skin. Lotions rich in Glycerin are a sure shot hydration concussion for your skin. Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion not only has a great percentage of Glycerin, but the Vitamin E Oil content in it also provides lustre to the skin.
SETUP A HUMIDIFIER
This one has been my recent discoveries and I can swear by the fact that it definitely works wonders. Installing a humidifier in your room or workplace ensures that the humidity in your otherwise super dry winter room stays balanced at all times. This not only helps me keep my sinus in check, it also provides moisture to the surface of my skin. The humidifier has decreased my usage of lip balms and limited moisturzation application to just two times in a 24 hours cycle.
