Hello Beauties!

   Compared to summers, most of us like winters- cold and chilled weather. But it can be quite a nightmare for the skin, as it makes the skin dry and flaky. Due to low humidity levels the water on your skin evaporates more quickly which makes the skin feel dry and tight and makes it look flaky. The skin also loses more than 25 percent of its ability to hold moisture in the winter. We mostly observe the dry skin somewhere on our body in the form of flaky patches, cracked skin and in more severe cases, itchy red patches losing the moisture and nourishment. Not only the skin, but also the hair gets affected in winters as it too loses its moisture leaving unhealthy hairs.

Toning: Our bodies are comprised mostly of water, and we need to take in a large quantity of water each day to replenish what we lose through sweat, waste, and energy. In winters, the air gets colder and dry which robs the water on our skin. So, it is necessary to hydrate our skin by drinking a lot of water as much as we can. We won't feel the need to drink water in winters so keeping the skin hydrated might be difficult. In that case we can use Rose Water which is an excellent natural toner to the skin.
  I suggest using the Vanya Rose Water as toner on daily basis. It not only hydrates but also gives a good finish to the skin texture keeping your skin fresh. Just spray liberally on face and neck regularly both morning and evening to improve the skin tone. It is suitable for all types of skin all-round the year.
