Do you have dry weather skin?

Are you feeling the tightness of dry weather skin this year? Well, you are not alone. Luckily, there are a few easy steps that you can take to relieve the discomfort.

The main problem during the winter is that we are exposed to indoor heaters and dry air which leads to dry skin. It’s absolutely essential to moisturize! Thick creams and ointments are far more effective than watery lotions and the best time to apply them is right after you get out of the shower or tub-from head to toe!

Try to avoid super hot showers and baths, as this tends to make dry skin even worse. If you suffer from itchy skin, applying cream can also relieve that problem.

If you have sensitive skin, avoid soaps and lotions with heavy scents and abrasive materials in the shower that can aggravate the problem.
