Winter is a truly an extraordinary time – the warm blankets, the chilly nights, the lattes and cappuccinos, are a just part of our winter subculture. With countless such joys in the air, there’s nothing about winter that we don’t love, and we are sure that you agree with us.

However, when the cold winds start to blow, and humidity starts to get low, the moisture evaporates out of your skin and that’s when you know that winters can be harsh too.

Although we have it easier in South Asian countries, dry skin problems don’t escape us. We need to provide a lot of nourishment to our skin in order to maintain its texture and elasticity in winter. One of the best ways to do this is to apply coconut oil on your skin. Coconut oil is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy that has been tried and tested for more than 4000 years.

Coconut oil contains a lot of fatty acids, which help skin cells to retain moisture. It also reduces water loss from the top layer of the skin, and thus keeps the skin supple and healthy. Sounds like that’s all you need, right? Well, there’s more. Coconut oil also has anti-microbial, antiviral and antifungal agents that make it an effective remedy against a myriad of infections, viruses and fungal problems. With regular use of coconut oil in your skin care regime, you will have soft, radiant skin that glows from within.

Coconut oil is an extremely versatile compound. You will be surprised to know the number of steps that this miracle product can cover in your skincare.

You can use raw coconut oil as a hydrating lotion for your body. You can make a natural facewash with it by mixing it up with some baking soda. If you want an exfoliating scrub, add honey and sugar to the oil, and run it onto your skin by pressing gently. It can also be used to shave because it glides over the skin, moisturizing, preventing irritation and fighting microbes from the skin’s surface. But what we personally love to use coconut oil as a make up remover. There is, honestly, nothing better and nothing more inexpensive that can give your skin such a thorough cleanse than our coveted coconut oil!

To keep it short, we will just say that coconut oil is a multi-faceted magical treatment that answers to many demands of the skin. It is colorless, thick and full of natural goodness. We definitely love the smell of the oil too, but that’s a personal preference. To keep it short, we will just say that coconut oil is a multi-faceted magical treatment for many demands of the skin. We love it at all times of the year, but in winter it is just an irreplaceable item in our beauty regime. Try it out, and join the fan club!
