I personally love winters! The chilly season makes me feel fresh and alive! But unfortunately, winter is the time when our skin tends to get dry, itchy, and dull due to lack of moisture. We usually look around for good cold creams and body butters to get over dry skin conditions but we often overlook things available at our home for our skin care routine. Here is a list of top 10 home remedies for skin care in winter; use them and you will fall in love with your skin all over again!
