New Delhi: Fight winter woes by using beauty oil, cream cleanser and not relying on toner when the temperature drops.

Celebrity dermatologist Kiran Lohia shares a few tips:

* Know the number of times to wash face: Don’t wash your face more than twice a day. Using a face wash frequently will steal all your skin’s hydration and nutrition. If you are feeling dirty or just got back from the gym, just splash some water on your face.

Choose the right face wash: Stay away from foaming face wash and use a cream or oil cleanser instead. These will gently get rid of oil while also providing nutrition and moisture to your skin.

Say no to toner: Toners are a big cause of skin drying up.
* Use a beauty oil: Instead of using a basic cream or lotion, which only have 15 to 20 per cent oil-based components, a pure beauty oil will deliver 100 per cent hydration benefits. Look for grapeseed or pumpkin seed oil, which will moisturise while also giving important nutrients like vitamin E and Omega 3 Fatty Acids.
