5 Ways to Keep Your Skin Hydrated in Winter

5-Ways-to-Keep-Your-Skin-Hydrated-in-Winter

Many people get dry skin in winter. Dehydrated skin is typically caused by external elements rather than being a condition in which your skin does not produce enough oils. Here are five things you can do to keep your skin looking healthy in the winter months.

1. Add a humidifier to your home.

When you turn on the heater, it dries out the air. Humidity keeps your skin from drying out. You may want to put several small humidifiers in your home to disperse the moisture more evenly.

2. Moisturize more.

Apply good moisturizer more than you might during the summer. The skin on your hands is thinner than other parts of your body. It may need more moisturizer than you realize. If you wear wool gloves, use a cotton liner to prevent irritation from the wool.

3. Avoid hot baths and saunas.

Hot water steals the moisture from your skin. If you must get in the bath, use a few drops of an essential oil to moisturize your skin. Lower the water temperature a little. When you get out, apply natural skincare products, such as cocoa butter, when your skin is still damp.

4. Check the labels of your skin care products.

Look for skin hydration products that don’t have an alcohol base. Witch hazel refreshes and restores the skin without drying it out. Choose hydrating sprays carefully.

5. Ask a professional.

No, you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on skin hydration products. A professional can help you determine what you really need and why.

How to Tell if Your Skin is Hydrated

Pinch the skin on the back of your hand, then let the skin go. It should return to its original state within a couple of seconds. If it doesn’t, your skin may need more moisture, externally and internally.
