How to Keep Your Skin Healthy and Moisturized During the Winter

Posted by AnaV on December 27th, 2018

Winter is here and you know what that means... Dry skin and all the problems that come with it. 

Now, not sure if you know this or not, but during the winter, the air becomes dry, and, when you add heating systems in your home into the equation, you get a really dry air that acts like a sponge and simply sucks out the moisture from your skin.

If you want to help your skin and avoid ezcema, redness and itchiness, cracked skin, and scaling, here's what you need to do.

GET A HUMIDIFIER

Humidifiers are really useful home appliances that offer more benefits than you know. Other than being one of the best remedies for nasal congestions, fly and cold symptoms, and inflamed sinus cavities and splitting headaches, humidifiers also do wonders for dry skin and all the problems that come with it.

Therefore, this winter, start using a humidifier and make your home's air much more comfortable and forget all about dry skin after just a few days.

TAKE SHORTER AND COOLER BATHS AND SHOWERS

Yes, long, steaming hot baths and showers actually dehydrate your skin, not hydrate. Therefore, cut down on the heat and try to be closer to the cold side than the hot. Also, make your bath times shorter.

USE NATURAL SKIN OILS

Right after having a bath or a shower, while your skin is still damp, you should use natural body oils to keep that moisture trapped and not allow it to evaporate. However, make sure that the oils you use are alcohol-free because it dehydrates your skin even more.

AVOID DIURETIC BEVERAGES

Coffee, tea, soda pop, alcohol, all beverages that dehydrate your body, skin included. Therefore, if you want to keep your skin moisturized, avoid these beverages and drinks as much as you can and drink plenty of water.
