Us­ing al­co­hol-based prod­ucts

Hair - - Experiential -

Why: “Al­co­hol-based prod­ucts can strip the skin of its oil and mois­ture. This can lead to fur­ther ir­ri­ta­tion and al­ler­gic re­ac­tions,” ex­plains Dr. Madhuri Agar­wal, der­ma­tol­o­gist and aes­thetic physi­cian at Ya­vana Aes­thetic Clinic. In­stead: Try wa­ter or gel-based prod­ucts. In the dry win­ter months, th­ese for­mu­la­tions will give your skin ad­e­quate hy­dra­tion with­out weigh­ing it down or making it greasy. She adds, “try prod­ucts that have sooth­ing agents like chamomile, witch hazel or aloe vera.”
