Whether or not you’re ready to accept it, the cold winter months are quickly approaching. Although many people enjoy this chilly time of year, one thing that doesn’t appreciate this temperature change is your skin!

Here are some tips to help you manage your dry skin this winter season.

Invest in a Humidifier

Dry, indoor air can parch your skin, hair, and lips. A home humidifier adds moisture back into the air, helping reduce any itching or flaking you are dealing with. There are many options on the market, including warm and cool mist, steam vaporizers, and ultrasonic machines.

Don’t Set Your Shower Water to Boiling

Although it's tempting when the temperatures drop below freezing, showering in steaming hot water strips your skin of its natural oils and dries you out. Limit your bathing time to no more than ten minutes daily and use warm water instead of hot to keep your skin protected.

Carefully Exfoliate  

Exfoliating is important to remove dead skin cells and reveal soft, smooth, radiant-looking skin. Getting rid of these dead skin cells can help improve several skin issues, including clogged pores, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. Regular exfoliation allows skincare products like serums and moisturizers to penetrate the skin better.

Dry brushing is another great method to incorporate into your skin care routine to help detoxify your skin!

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

After you wash your hands or step out of the shower, it's important to replenish your skin with the moisture it needs to stay soft and healthy. Search for fragrance-free moisturizers to keep your sensitive skin from getting irritated, and check for natural ingredients like shea and cocoa butter that are known for their healing properties.
