Three Tips for Avoiding Dry Skin During Winter
Posted by Shifrah on Monday, November 30, 2009
Winter can be a terrible time for skin. Cold, dry air and heated dry air can combine to leave your skin less than supple. Here are three easy things you can do to keep dry skin at bay this winter:
  • Humidify - Forced air heating systems (the kind used in most homes) dries out the air. Adding moisture back into the air with a humidifier restores proper humidity levels, making your home feel warmer and keeping your skin happy.
  • Moisturize at the right time - Slathering on lotion doesn't always make a difference. The priniciple behind moisturizing is that lotion will trap moisture near your skin. Hence, the best time to moisturize is after a shower when your skin is still slightly damp. Or, leave some lotion near your sink so you can rub it on after washing your hands. Be sure to use fragrance-free, hypoallergenic lotions such as Vanicream to avoid irritating sensitive skin.
  • Drink lots of water - Restore your body's moisture levels from the inside out by staying hydrated. To help yourself keep track of your liquid intake, try associating drinking a glass of water with routine activities. For instance, take a glass back to your desk after every break and meal.
Taking care of your skin is especially important if you have sensitive skin or eczema, because dry skin is often the first step on the way to a problem. Adding these items to your winter routine, can go a long way in helping to keep your skin from becoming dry.
