Winter is known to be the time for hot chocolate, colder weather, snow (some places) and getting dry, itchy skin. Dry and itchy skin? That’s right! Due to wind and cold temperatures, winter can cause our skin to lose moisture and become tight and dry. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, dry skin is very common during winter and can lead to itching, flaking and cracked skin. Although we have no control over the cold weather outside, there are many tricks and products we can use to keep our skin healthy all winter long!
Winter Skin Tips:
- Using a mild soap during the winter time will help decrease dry and itchy skin.
- Avoid wearing wet gloves and socks that could further cause your skin to become cracked or itchy.
- Keep hot showers down to about 10 to 15 minutes and apply lotion to your skin right after you get out of the shower. Taking a long shower or bath after being outside in the cold, can take moisture out of our skin leaving it really dry.
- Keep applying sunscreen. Yes, that’s right! You can still get sun damage even when it’s cold outside. With the combination of the sun and the glare from snow, your skin can still get sun burns and skin damage. Before going outside, apply sunscreen to your face and hands then wait 30 minutes.
