Learn how to treat dry skin in winter

The cold weather months can be harsh on our skin, but fortunately there are many ways to treat dry skin in winter. Following these tips will not only help maintain smooth and supple skin for the rest of the season, but it will also help prevent worse conditions such as eczema. Just because it is winter does not mean that you should neglect using sunscreen. The sun can still be quite strong in winter and can cause damage to your skin, so be sure to apply a broad spectrum sunscreen to skin prior to going outside. Also, you should make sure to moisturize more often, and look for an oil based moisturizer that will create a protective layer on your skin, which will help it retain more moisture than the standard cream.

In order to protect your hands from cracking and getting too dry, wear gloves when you go outside. This will help seal in moisture and prevent outside elements from damaging your skin. Try setting up a humidifier in your home as well, because they supply moist air, which keeps skin from drying out, unlike central heaters that blast dry air, which dries skin out. You should also avoid using products that contain alcohol and astringents, as these strip vital oil from skin and dry skin out further.
