Take Care Of Your Skin In Winters

Your skin has become itchy, red, and irritated due to the cold and dry air? Don’t worry. Here’s what you can do to keep your skin moist and supple.

Some easy changes to your everyday routine will keep your skin moisturized.

Using a humidifier in your home or office will add moisture to dry winter air and help your skin retain its moisture. 

Central heat can make the air in your house dry. Set the temperature at a cool yet comfortable setting – 68°F to 72°F

Better take a lukewarm water bath. Avoid using hot water when washing your hands. Washing your hands in cooler water appears to be as effective at removing germs as warm water and is less irritating to the skin.

Wash with a fragrance-free, moisturizing cream or gel. You can reduce dry skin problems by using less soap overall. Limit your lathering too.

During the winter months, choose cream-based cleansers, and apply very fewer toners and astringents. if at all. When your skin is dry and itchy stop using products that contain alcohol and fragrances to help skin retain its natural oils. A richer moisturizer must be used at night on your face.

Don’t forget your lips. Applying a moisturizing balm can help heal dry, cracked lips and keep them from getting chapped. However, if the lip product causes a tingling sensation, switch to a different product.

Moisturize your hands after washing. Use a cream or ointment. Lotions are better in warmer, humid climates. You can also wear waterproof gloves when washing dishes or cleaning around the house.

It’s just as important to be applying sunscreen in the winter weather as it is in the summer. The sun’s harmful UV rays can penetrate the clouds and cause damage. So, before going out, apply a moisturizing, broad-spectrum sunscreen.

Many cold-weather fabrics can aggravate dry winter skin. Keep wool and rough clothing from direct skin contact. Wear soft materials directly against your skin, and then pull on your heavier, warmer sweaters. Wear gloves to protect your hands.

Omega-3 or omega-6 fatty acids, such as fish oil and flaxseed oil can be taken as food supplements.

If gloves, socks, and pants become wet, remove them as soon as possible.

If you still experience dryness, discomfort, and irritation after trying these healthy skin tips, hydrocortisone cream can be tried.
