The onset of winter brings to my mind a warm blanket, a hot soup and also a dry skin! Winter season brings with it, cold, dry and chilly winds. Our skin is constantly exposed to extreme cold when outdoors and has to quickly adjust back to the warm heated interiors. The bad news is that both indoor heating as well as the cold weather outside, dehydrates our skin. Dry skin conditions include flaking, white patches or cracks in the skin and can cause lots of discomforts. Dry skin is susceptible to wrinkles as well as many skin inflammations including eczema. It is important to follow a good skin care routine in order to prevent dry skin conditions.
A good daily skin care routine starts with a well-hydrated body. Doctors advise drinking eight to ten glasses of water a day. Sipping warm water or green tea is a great way to stay warm and fight dryness in cold weather.
Oiling the skin is believed to be beneficial as oil creates a protective layer on our skin unlike a normal moisturiser which can cause the skin to feel dry after a few hours of exposure. Oils such as almond or coconut have amazing skin benefits and can protect the skin for longer hours. It is also a good idea to try out oil-based creams and moisturisers as they are more effective in fighting dry skin than the regular ones. However, oils can also clog pores, thus caution is needed on when and how much oil to be used on skin.
Avoid use of harsh scrubs or sunscreens in winter as they can irritate the outer layer of the skin. Instead, go for herbal face masks like honey lemon or milk oatmeal to replenish the skin’s moisture. It’s best to choose skin care products wisely and go the natural and ayurvedic way.
Avoid outdoor exposure as much as possible, however, sitting in heating rooms for too long is also not advisable for skin. It is better to be well covered and sit under a blanket than under artificial heat systems as it can deplete moisture from the body.
Eating wholesome nutritious food packed with nutrients can help the body replenish the lost moisture. Avoid spicy and oily food and instead, go for loads of seasonal fruits and vegetables and enjoy the natural shine on your body!
In a case of skin rashes or an itchy or cracked skin that begins to worse even after normal oiling, always consult a dermatologist as it could be a sign of a skin infection.
Our skin is a reflection of our health and personality. It always remained exposed and thus needs constant care and attention to be at its best. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist and ask a free question.

Are you observing uneven pigmentation on your skin? In this condition, the color of your skin may get different in different places and it affects people of all skin colors, types and backgrounds. Skin pigmentation may arise from several factors such as exposure to sunlight, skin damage, inflammation and certain genetic conditions. It is mostly caused due to an overproduction or underproduction of melanin.
Here are the different types of skin pigmentation
- Freckles: These are caused by clusters of concentrated melanin. These tend to darken with exposure to more sunlight. Freckles are more common in people with a fair complexion.
- Age spots or liver spots: These are also called solar lentigos. This is a type of skin pigmentation, which is mostly associated with aging and prolonged exposure to UV light. This condition is more common in people beyond the age of 40 as the skin starts losing its ability of repairing sun damage.
- Birthmarks: These are unusual blemishes on the skin, which are found during birth. They also develop some weeks after birth. Pigmented birthmarks and vascular birthmarks are the two primary types of this pigmentation.
- Melasma: Melasma occurs in both men and women. It is more common in women, especially among pregnant women who use contraceptive pills and women receiving hormone replacement therapy. The condition occurs due to over activation of melanocytes by estrogen and progesterone. When the skin gets exposed to sunlight, it leads to an increase in melanin production.
Post inflammatory hyper pigmentation
This condition arises due to an increased production of melanin because of inflammatory responses. The inflammation occurs during a trauma in the skin layers. It may occur due to various reasons such as acne, skin injury, infections, dermatitis, medications, allergic reactions and some medicines.
Treatment for skin pigmentation
For treating skin pigmentation which occurs because of melanin overproduction, it is recommended for you to get less exposed to sunlight, especially in the affected area. This will prevent the condition from worsening. You should always apply an SP 30+ sunscreen while going out in the sun and cover the affected area from sunlight. The treatment of skin pigmentation depends on several factors, such as the type and cause of pigmentation and the layer of skin where it occurs. There are several modes of treatment, which include pigmentation removal, skin peels, skin needling and many more. These are quite effective in the treatment of different skin pigmentation types.
It is recommended that you consult a skin specialist in case you experience any symptoms of skin pigmentation. This will enable you to have a quick diagnosis and after knowing about the type you are affected with, treatment steps can be started.
