Supple Skin in the Dead of Winter (Blogmas Day 23)

Everyone knows that our skin changes depending on the season and the weather, but what some of us may not know is how to combat the cold, dry months.

Skin feels dry and irritated because of the dry air outside. Heat inside in the winter can also be very drying and your skin struggles to stay hydrated.  Some tips to battle the winter:

  • Limit shower time and use warm water, not hot
  • Exfoliate off the dead skin with a loofah or body scrub
  • After you have a bath or shower, lather up in lotion 
  • Use a humidifier to add moisture back into the room
