10 Effective Natural Winter Therapies - Aish

During winter, to breeze away the freeze, we take almost 10 minutes to cover ourselves with sweaters, jackets, socks and shoes while stepping out. Inside most of our homes, we use heaters and to control the dryness caused due to excess heat we utilize humidifiers. These are the electronic ways we undergo, why not go in a natural way to control the chillness around us inside.


We would be in a sorry state for the people who are living in the snow clad areas, while we live in a place freezing, even without a snow drop. In most of the countries, not all homes are connected with heaters or automated heat-processed faucets. Thus, to beat the extreme cold at our homes let us follow these effective natural therapies :

Classic Buzz 6 :

1. WASH, DRY AND MOISTURIZE




While cooking or after completion, making our hands wet cannot be avoided. Not all times we get to wash our hands from the water with room temperature during winter months. Keep a container with warm water beside the kitchen sink to have a dip / wash at times if the water from the faucet is too cold, then dry up the hands in a cloth. After completion of the work, apply olive / coconut oil to moisturize the hands.

2. PREVENT DEHYDRATION




During the chill climate when the temperatures drop down, the air becomes drier and our bodies receive less moisture than they do during warmer months. Due to this low level of moisture in our bodies, we tend to drink less  water during this season. So, to prevent from dehydration, drink plenty of warm water mixed with honey and lemon. Honey reduces ulcer and other gastrointestinal disorders while lemon is rich in Vitamin helping in eliminating conjestions.

3. NAURAL WINTER FACE PACK


Winter not only takes away the sheen of the skin but also leaves one with depressing skin. Multani mitti popularly known as ‘bleaching clay’ or Fuller's Earth acts as a healing ingredient from acne and blemishes. This natural product is used as the best face pack with no side effects for all skin types.

Face pack mixtures during winter to prevent dryness and dullness in skin :
Multani Mitti + honey + curd for dry skin.
Multani Mitti + rose water for oily skin.

We are aware of some best natural facial tools and homespun titbits from, Home Dwelling Beauty Kits - Aish apply them to get wonderful results.

4. TOWEL SHOWER


Not all days are the same for kids and even grown ups. The dust, pollution and to top it all the cold weather, kids grow with might in such inconvenient circumstances too. A warm shower on all days is a must but sometimes when one's health is not cooperative due to the chill atmosphere, a dip in hot water with a dry towel and wipe on body would make one feel fresh and warm. Use luke warm water instead of very hot water for bathing as hot water steals away the natural body oils.

5. WARM ROOM TEMPERATURE 



To sustain a warm atmosphere, place an utensil with hot water in the middle of your room and then close the door for almost 10 to 15 minutes before heading to bed. The steam from the hot water utensil keeps the room warm.

6. MOISTURIZER



Before going to bed and after waking up in the morning apply Coconut oil on hands and legs. The best natural moisturizer at home. The high levels of antioxidants present in Virgin Coconut oil reduces inflammation and heals arthritis.

7. RESPIRATORY PROBLEM HEALERS



Adding a drop of Eucalyptus oil in the water before taking a shower prevents from flu aggrevation. Using Eucalyptus for sinus, asthma and other respiratory disorders is a proven treatment that dilates the blood vessels and allows more oxygen into the lungs. Eucalyptus oil + Coconut oil + peppermint oil is used as one of the best vapor rubs in chest.

We also have in handy the five simple and quick remedies for preventing flu, congestion and other respiratory problems from Serene Home Remedies -Aish, by just being at home.

8. ALOE VERA WONDERS



Aloe vera or aloe vera-based products can be used in the winter as well as in the summer by people of all skin types. Dermatologists recommend Aloe vera as it treats the cells on the epithelial level of the skin to remove tan, treat sunburn and stretch marks, gives the skin its nourishing and anti-ageing qualities. Drinking aloe vera juice early in the morning on an empty stomach improves digestion and cures any kind of stomach trouble. Having an Aloe Vera plant at home does wonders!

9. BEST NATURAL CONDITIONER 



Soak few Methi (Fenugreek seeds) for half an hour and then blend it to a paste. Apply to hair for 10 minutes and then have a wash. The best natural conditioner readily available at home. To oil up the hair before a wash, we are familiar with the ingredients from Roots from Folks - Aish

10. HAPPY FEET




Feet are the most affected parts during winter with cramps, cracks and dryness. We really feel to get a pedicure done at times due to extreme cold during winters or extreme heat during summer.

 HOME PEDICURES :

■ Mix Rice flour with honey and apply on the feet. Rice flour exfoliates the skin well while honey acts as a skin toner.

■ Apply Vaseline on the feet and wear socks before heading to bed. Made out of petroleum jelly, Vaseline helps preventing clogs in pores.

■ Soak feet in the warm water mixed with salt and lemon, the best result for fine feet. The citric acid in lemon and salt help in cleansing the deep pores in skin.

■ Soak feet in warm water added with rose water and glycerine. Glycerine helps in cell maturation and retains the smoothness of skin while rose water acts as an anti-inflammatory that can help reduce skin irritation.

■ Soak feet in the soapy water and then scrub with the pumice stone to get the glowing feet. Pumice stones are used for removing dead skin and calluses around feet.

■ Each of us do have a moisturizing cream which after its use or is about to get over before it's date of expiry. Prior throwing it, apply on the feet to get a moist feet clean and toned.

■  Not many homes are with hot bags to eliminate cramps or pain in legs. A gentle rub on the pain with a warm water filled glass bottle helps in reduction of pain and acts as a smoother.
