1. During winter, try to drink plenty of fluids. Ayurveda recommends drinking only cool or warm water, as cold water hinders the digestive process. Liquid wets the internal systems of the organism, which, in turn, deliver nutrients to the skin cells. All this makes the skin healthy and radiant.

Try to reduce the room temperature to a minimum, but it still should be comfortable, especially at night when you sleep. Also it would be good to install a humidifier. Balancing the moisture in your environment will help prevent dryness in the nasal passages and eyes.

For best results, apply moisturizer to damp skin, immediately after its purification. This helps to keep the moisture of the surface layer of the skin. Remember that all the body needs moisture, especially elbows, knees, hands and feet. The skin in these areas can become very sensitive and even crack. In this case - the application of small amount of wetting agent before bedtime. If you have very dry skin, it is recommended that you keep your feet in warm water for 10 minutes, then apply melted oil on the heels and feet and walk around in socks before going to bed.

Carrying out this procedure once a week would not allow your skin look tired. Purchase a mild exfoliant, but do not rub the skin too much. Then apply a moisturizing mask. Use a dry exfoliating brush for body once a week, and exfoliating salt - before taking a shower or bath with essential oils. This will have a beneficial effect on dry and tired skin. http://www.herbals.lv/en/Ayurveda-For-Skin
