While our heart welcomes the cold days after a long, hot and humid season, our body may not be quite ready for it. The transition period from summer to winter makes us more susceptible to common allergies and infections.

Do you feel that your skin becomes drier and paler with the change of weather? It’s time to turn your attention towards your skin and give it the treatment it deserves.

5 diet tips for skin care during changing weather:

1. Drink water and drink more

The best way to hydrate your skin to restore its hydration is to drink plenty of water. Aim to get at least 2 liters of water per day. You can also add some hydrating drinks like lemon water and fruit juices to increase fluid intake.


2. Eat foods rich in vitamin C

Foods that are high in vitamin C provide antioxidants to boost immunity and flush toxins out of the body. All of this is reflected in your skin. So, take out the oranges that are in the fridge and juice them or just keep them as is.

Spinach, kale, mustard greens, fenugreek leaves – all these greens are rich in skin-nourishing vitamin K and also have anti-inflammatory properties, which help in managing redness and flaking of the skin.


5. Go nuts

Nuts and dry fruits are full of healthy fats that impart a glow to the skin, leaving it looking healthy and nourished. So, make sure to have a handful of these every day to protect your skin from the harsh winter winds in the future.


Welcoming the new season with a healthy body and skin; All you have to do is pay attention to your diet.
