The sudden cold weather after a barrage of heat waves can be very damaging to the skin.

The cold weather can cause break outs in acne, itchy dry patches, can inflame existing conditions or cause all new ones.

It is important to take extra care of your skin as the blessed rains continue to heal the drought-ravaged land.

Here are 5 ways to protect your skin from cold weather.

1. Moisturise regularly

This will help prevent cracking from your skin.

2. Avoid alcohol based cleansers

Go easy when it comes to exfoliation. It can cause your skin to crack and leave it prone to infection.

3. Wear warm clothing

Change from damp clothes as soon as you can, as wet fabric can lead to chafing.

4. Moisturize immediately after showering

This helps retain the suppleness of your skin. Apply the oils while your skin is still slightly damp.

5. Avoid long showers

Staying in a bath or shower for a long time strips oils from the body.
