If you thought acne is a problem that is common to summers, think again. As much as sweating can lead to acne, dry skin during the colder months can also cause pimples.
Not only are these pimples painful, but they also tend to leave deep marks on your skin. To ensure that you do not suffer from winter acne, here's what you need to do —
1. Wash your face with lukewarm water: Lukewarm water will ensure that your skin does not stay oily and also your pores cleared off dirt. Further, it will also keep your skin soft and supple.
2. Apply a light-weight moisturiser: Unlike a deep hydrating moisturiser, a light-weight moisturiser will nourish your skin and will hydrate it from within. It will also cleanse your pores and make your skin soft and smooth.
3. Use Neem face pack: Neem is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and will reduce the occurrence of acne. It also reduces the blemishes caused by acne.

How to fill in thin eyebrows
- First, mark the ends of the brows. Ideally, the inside point should line up with the outside of your nose.
- For the outside point, line a brush from the outer corner of your nose to the outer corner of your eye. Your brow should end along the same line.
- If you can't draw, invest in eyebrow stencils that are available in the market. These are helpful if you are looking for very well-defined brows. They will guide you as to where to fill in, so that you get clean lines.
- If you want a defined look, opt for a pencil in the shade of your eyebrows. For a more natural look, go for a power.
- Don't forget to tap off the excess power from your brush before applying it. If using a pencil, see that it is sharp so that you can draw in tiny strokes. Do the same for the power.
