How to Combat Dry Skin this Winter

 

It is very common for people to experience drier than usual skin during the winter months. With winter comes less humidity and dry air which takes a toll on your skin. People are prone to dry, itchy, and flaky skin once the weather gets colder. Luckily, there are several ways that people can get rid of their dry skin during the cold winter months.

Avoid hot water: Hot water takes away oils that are in your skin and when you don’t have oil your skin gets dry. Use lukewarm water instead.

Keep yourself hydrated: It is always important to drink as much water as your body needs, however, it is especially important during the winter. The excess water is used to hydrate your skin and prevent dryness.

Pick a good moisturizer: One of the best ways to prevent dryness is to moisturize. It’s important to pick the right moisturizer that will keep your skin as hydrated as possible. Make sure to pick a moisturizer that has natural and nourishing ingredients.

Change Your Cleanser: People tend to pick cleansers that strip as much oil as possible to prevent breakouts. However, in the winter months it is more important to choose a different cleanser that is less harsh on your skin. If you notice that your skin is continually very dry after you wash your face, think about switching your cleanser.
