Winter Ayurveda Remedies for a Radiant Skin

Winter is the season when skin needs extra protection, esp. if you celebrate a white Christmas! Here are some of the most common skin issues that most people face during the winter.


Most Common Skin Issues in Winter

  • Dry Skin

  • Flakiness

  • Chapped lips

  • Cracked Heels

  • Numbness

  • Acne

  • Eczema

Ayurveda says that everyone is unique. So, if you are a coldish vata type, you might be severely affected by the extreme dryness in the skin, lips, heels, and other body parts. If you have pitta skin, you might face a breakout or acne. If you are a Kapha person, you may experience numbness and paleness in your skin.

This exposure to cold may also aggravate disorders like psoriasis, eczema, Raynaud’s Disease, etc.

That’s why it is important to choose the protection that suits your skin type.
