As we are entered into the winter months and our skin begins to dry out due to the drop in temperature and we are also going to change our wardrobe, it is equally important to change our routine, skincare Cream, foods…etc. This season is also feels like a beauty vampires–biting winds, steamy showers, dipping temps and drying indoor heat–can suck the life right out of your skin and hair. happily, we have some easy advice for soothing your thirstiest parts, from scalp to soles.
1- Use a humidifier in Your Home and Office:
The harsh, cold winter winds strip the air of much needed moisture, leaving you with dry skin. A humidifier helps put that moisture back into the air, so consider running one continuously throughout the day.
2- Take Shorter, Cooler Showers :
A hot shower might feel good on a cold winter day, but the hot temperatures strip away moisture. Fix dry skin by reducing the water temperature as much as you can stand and limit your showers to 10 minutes or less.
3- Limit Your Soap Use :
The harsh ingredients in soap can quickly dry your skin, so only using soap on the “dirty” areas of the body. “Water alone is usually enough to cleanse the skin of the arms and legs without risking the drying effects of soap.
4- Apply Lotion Right After Your Shower :
Quickly pat dry your skin after a shower and apply a thick moisturizing cream or ointment while your skin is still wet. The cream adds a barrier on your dry skin, essentially “locking in” moisture. So ask your Skin Dr that which lotion you need to use in this winter season.
5- Don’t Avoid Use Sunscreen Cream:
If you spend time outside in the winter, protect your skin from weather extremes. Apply a high-SPF sunscreen several times each day to help avoid painful sunburns and skin damage.
6- Don’t Forget the Lip Balm :
Don’t forget the medicated lip balm. Find a high-quality lip balm that heals and moisturizers and apply it liberally each day to avoid cracked lips.
7- Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate:
Hydrate your skin from the inside out by drinking plenty of water at least six glasses a day, though you can get your fill with juice as well. Try to avoid caffeine as much as possible, it’s a diuretic that flushes water out of your body, leaving you dehydrated and your skin dry.
