During the winter season, some people suffer from itchy, flaky, and abnormally dry skin. The extreme coldness during this season can decrease the natural moisture of skin. Wearing thick layered clothing to protect yourself from extreme coldness can also cause skin irritations and itchiness. This can block the breathing space of your skin and can eventually result in more skin problems.
We may need to use normal skin moisturizers all year around. But in winter, we need use a special dry skin care moisturizer that prevents skin dryness or treat the existing dry and itchy skin.
Since it is cold, most people are frequently taking a bath or shower using hot water. But frequent hot baths can result to more skin problems and excessive skin dryness. Hot water shower can wash away the body’s natural oil barrier. This natural oil barrier keeps the moisture in our skin. So instead of doing this, you can just take a quick shower for no more than ten minutes. After your shower, dry your skin without rubbing the towel. Doing so can irritate the affected part. The best way to towel the water off is to just pat yourself dry.
You can also replace natural oils by applying creams, moisturizers, and even baby oils that can moisturize your skin. But you should be really careful in picking products with oil contents. Avoid using products with mineral oil. Mineral oil can clog the pores of the skin and will strip away your natural oils.
You should use dry skin care products with natural ingredients like jojoba oil, avocado oil or shea butter. These ingredients have almost the same molecular structure with the skin that is why it can be easily absorbed and can be used to replace the lost natural oils.
Another dry skin care tip is the use of mild soaps and cleansers with natural ingredients. Avoid using products with harsh and harmful ingredients like petrolatum, fragrances, and alcohol. These can pull even more moisture out of the skin, because they are very drying substances.
You should take good care of your skin and make it a point that you will always drink adequate amount of fluid for proper hydration and apply a reliable moisturizer regularly. Also eating a balanced diet will help the condition of your skin and keep it properly nourished.
