How to Prevent Dry Skin During the Winter

Keeping your skin healthy during the winter can be as challenging as it is in the summer. Even though most of our skin is constantly covered during the cold winter months, little do we realize how many nutrients, moisture, and natural oils are being zapped out of our skin. As our hands and skin become dry, itchy, and cracked, we realize how difficult it can be to treat these winter skin symptoms. If untreated, dry skin my lead to dermatitis, which causes swelling and infection.

Here are some tips to help prevent and treat dry skin:

  • Drink at least 8 glasses (8oz) of pure water each day to keep your body and skin properly hydrated. If you are active, drink more. Limit the intake of caffeinated and alcoholic drinks. These drinks act as a diuretic, causing you to produce more urine and make more bathroom trips.
     
  • Use moisturizing creams and lotions that do not contain alcohol or fragrances.
     
  • Avoid moisture-robbing harsh soaps. Instead, use a mild, fragrance-free soap that is better for sensitive skin.
     
  • Take shorter showers with lukewarm water. The hotter and longer the shower, the more you dry out your skin.
     
  • Moisturize after showering and washing your hands.
     
  • Don’t forget about your lips and apply lip balm.  Also, wear gloves and a scarf to protect your hands and face when going out.
     
  • New studies have shown that omega-3 fish oil pills may soothe dry skin after several weeks of daily intake. Omega 3 fish oil is a highly beneficial health supplement that you want to consider taking daily anyway.
     
  • Install a humidifier in your home to keep air constantly moist.
     
  • Use the SunBuddy Lotion Applicator to apply moisturizer to your back and to hard to reach areas.
