How To Get Your Skin Ready For Winter
You want to maintain your great skin for the upcoming cold months. Well, here's how to keep it fresh for the winter...
The harsh winter air can wreak havoc on your skin, leaving it dry, itchy and irritated. Fortunately, there are many simple ways to combat dry skin and help keep your skin feeling moist and supple all season long. Here are some tips from our friends at blackdoctor.org:
1. Invest in a humidifier. Using a humidifier in your home or office will add moisture to dry winter air and help keep your skin hydrated. Run the humidifier in the rooms you spend the most time in, including your bedroom.
2. Lower the thermostat. When it’s chilly outside, what’s the first thing you want to do? Crank up the heat! But central heat can make the air in your house even drier. Try setting the thermostat at a cool yet comfortable setting—68°F to 72°F—to maintain healthy skin.
3. Skip hot showers. Although it may be tempting to warm up with a long, steamy shower, hot water dries out your skin by stripping it of its natural oils. Instead, take a 5- to 10-minute lukewarm shower (or bath). You should also avoid using excessively hot water when washing your hands.
