Of all the beautiful things that come with winter, dry skin is not one of them. Our skin tends to get drier in the winter, not only because of the cooler air but also because of central heating, which can cause conditions such as eczema to flare up. With winter coming quicker and quicker, here are a few tips to avoid dry, painful skin.

Consider turning the thermostat to a lower temperature: between 60 and 65 degrees is best. If you can, you should also invest in a humidifier, which puts moisture back into the air. Moisturizer is especially important in winter, so use a richer product than in other seasons – and don’t forget your hands. Your lips will benefit from the balm.

It is also important to minimize exposure to agents that strip the skin of its natural oils. Water – especially hot water – dries the skin, so make sure you’re using warm or lukewarm water for baths and showers, as well as washing your hands and doing the dishes.

Sweating also dries and irritates the skin, so after strenuous exercise, change into something clean and dry as soon as you can. Steer clear of alcohol-based skin care products, such as cleansers and toners. Try also to avoid bubble baths and opt instead for bath oils.
