So, you’ve got the mid-winter dry skin blues. You’ve come to the right place. We’ve got you covered with the best ways to kick chapped skin to the curb.
Why Dry Skin is a Winter Constant
Low humidity that comes along with cold temperatures disrupts the moisture balance in your skin. As water evaporates from your skin, dryness and cracking become the norm. While dry air is especially irksome for those with pre-existing conditions—like eczema, rosacea, or psoriasis—almost everyone suffers from some sort of winter skin irritation. The good news? There are lots of effective ways to keep cold weather from getting the best of your skin.
How to Stay Smooth
Most remedies simply take living with a little more intention.
• Avoid overly hot bath and shower water as it strips skin of natural protective oils.
• Don’t leave your gloves behind. Always cover as much skin as possible when outdoors.
• Use a humidifier, or add moisture to your home DIY style by placing a bowl of water near air vents or radiators.
• Add more healthy fats to your diet, i.e. avocados, nuts, olive oil, and fish.
• Moisturize immediately after showers or baths.
