Caring For You Skin During The Winter Months
January 20, 2021 | View PDF
Keeping your skin hydrated can be difficult, especially during the cold and dry winter months.
According to http://www.reidhealth.org, caring for your skin during winter takes extra time and effort because the conditions are less than ideal for our skin.
During the winter months, your skin often deals with cold dry air and low humidity, and these factors can deprive your skin of the moisture it needs, which results in dry, flaky, itchy, and possibly cracked skin.
One important thing to do to help keep your skin looking and feeling healthy is to keep the moisture you have. To accomplish this, Mayo Clinic suggests avoiding prolonged contact with water - like long baths and showers. And when you do come in contact with water, it is best to pat dry and moisturize your damp skin.
To avoid the drying effects of indoor heat, Mayo Clinic recommends adding moisture to your home by running a humidifier. You can also increase your water intake to help keep your skin hydrated.
In addition to this, you should thoroughly moisturize your skin with a gentle lotion to help lock in moisture and re-hydrate the skin.
To improve the appearance and overall health of your skin you can take advantage of aesthetic services in your area.
