Now that it looks like this time winter is going off quite early, it is the transition phase which affects the health most. That recurring cold or cough always happens during this transition phase, and like you, health gets affected, this transitional climate equally affects hair and skin health too. Hair fall spikes up, skin goes through a rough phase and whatnot. Like as they say ‘prevention is better than cure’, it is always advisable to get geared up for that climate transitional phase from winter to summer and take steps which would prevent/near to prevent skin and hair state to go haywire. Here are some of the quick fixes, which not only externally, but will keep your skin and hair care game on point – inside-out. And ok, you are thinking that these are going to be something which is unrealistic and all, but that’s totally not the case. The below-listed points are very minimal, realistic and do-able skincare and hair care factors which you can easily do to reap the best results:

 Haircare Tips:

  • Practise Deep Conditioning: This transitional climate tends to make our hair mostly dry and rough and thus prone to breakage. To prevent that, start practising deep conditioning in these two ways: hair oiling before you take a head bath and following up with a rich conditioner post the hair wash. These two will not only keep your hair soft but will also prevent them from breakage due to dryness.
  • Hair Masking Once a Week: If you are up for a homemade mask, then nothing can beat a hibiscus flower mask. Yes, you heard that right! Hibiscus conditions the hair makes it super soft and manageable and also adds that natural shine to the hair. All that you need to do is grind a handful of hibiscus flowers into a runny paste by adding water to the same. You can also use sour curd instead of water in the mask for further benefits. Just in case you don’t have access to hibiscus flowers, you can get pure hibiscus powder from the market and make the same pack.
  • Vitamin C: Nothing can beat the benefits of Vitamin C for hair growth and the prevention of hair damage. The easiest and quick sour e of Vitamin C is amla. Try and incorporate amla in your daily diet – you can have amla juice or dried amla or raw ones – whichever way you like and see your hair health being on point throughout the year!

Skincare Tips:

  • Consistency is the Key: Let’s say a skincare regime works for you – sticking to the same will give you the most of it than being fluctuant with it. Skincare should become a part of daily habits and you can get the best skin care tips for every day here. Apart from this, some of the key factors to be borne into mind to let the skin stay untouched by this weather change are i. Follow a CTM routine religiously; ii. Apply face masks based on your skin’s needs twice a week (at least); iii. Clean off the make-up before you go to bed; iv. Get a good night's sleep of 8 hours daily and keep stress at bay.
  • Hydration is the Key: Water creates the passageway for every nutrient that you intake from food to reach the cells. Thus, no matter how clean and good you eat, if your body isn’t enough hydrates, you will always lack that skin glow and the seasonal changes will affect your skin more and more.
  • Hydrating Creams: Hydration externally is as much important as internal one. Even if you are an oily skin person, an oil-free moisturizer is as much important to you as a minimum of 2.5 litres of water per day. External hydration helps keep the skin barrier in place and thus keeps problems at bay. The key is to figure out the best-suited hydrating product for you and stick to it.
