Uh-oh ... winter skin is back

Filed under:

With all the snow and general coldness, winter has a lot of strikes against it, if you ask me. But one of the worst parts about the cold season is the fact that it's always accompanied by dry, itchy skin. Ugh!

What should you do if you have a case of the winter skin? eDiets has the following suggestions:
  • Consider the cleanser. We usually don't think much about our cleanser, but it can be very drying. Consider switching to one that is gentler on skin, or even one that is designed for dry skin. If you skin feels tight half an hour after washing, you cleanser might be too harsh. And don't over-cleanse, even if you have zits.
  • Switch to rich. Pick up a rich cleanser, possibly one that's specific to very dry skin.
  • Exfoliate. Doing this two or three times a week will keep your skin supple.
  • Embrace the mask. It might make you look like a cave monster, but a hydrating mask will do wonders for you.
  • See a pro. Getting a facial will also help. They might be steep but they're worth it.
How do you keep you skin moisturized in winter?
