How You Can Turn Your Regular Moisturisers Into Winter Moisturisers

By Riddhi

Some of us don't feel like going out and buying a separate moisturiser for the winter, although the winters do usually demand a little extra care on our parts. So, here's how you can turn your regular moisturisers into a winter moisturiser and moisturise your skin in winters.

The winters usually spell havoc for most skin types, although not as much as summers do. Wouldn't we all love to have a great, flawless-looking skin all year round? Now, with a little bit of care, everyone can get a flawless, smooth skin.

We will be teaching you how you can easily turn a normal everyday moisturiser into the one that is perfectly suited for winters. You only need a little bit of time and patience. And, of course, you will need the ingredients.

Don't worry, it is really simple to do this and wouldn't require too much of an extra effort on your part as well. And just think of the amount of money you'd be saving! Sounds perfect, right?

So, keep reading to find out more about the interesting ways in which you can turn your regular moisturisers into the one for winters!

1. Glycerin: Simply add a little bit of diluted glycerin into your regular moisturiser. Glycerin can help heal the driest of skin. In fact, it has even helped us with rashes and what we like to call chub rub, which can be intensely painful.

2. Coconut Oil: Alas, the holy grail of all beauty products can save your lotion from going into wastage during the cold season. Just a few drops is all you need, else the new lotion would be too greasy.

3. Cocoa Butter: If you're looking for an extra bit of hydration without it being over the top, go for cocoa butter. It can make your skin smell delicious and also keep dryness at bay. This is a perfect ingredient to use for skin in winters.

4. Shea Butter: Shea butter is really good for people who have dry skin that they have given up hope on. Yes, this ingredient will make you wish you knew about it earlier.

5. Petroleum Jelly: Now, who doesn't have a tub of petroleum jelly at home? It is the one thing that comes in handy when you have scrapes, cuts or even chapped lips. Go ahead and mix some up with your lotion as well, to make your very own perfect body lotion for winters.

6. Aloe Vera Gel: Is there any skin care problem that aloe vera can't solve? We don't think so! Mix this non-greasy gel with your regular lotion to get all-day hydration during winters.

7. Jojoba Oil: This oil replicates the natural oils that are produced by the skin to the most extent. Add a few drops of it to your lotion to ensure that you get the right hydration which doesn't get transfered onto your clothes.
