Do you moisturize every day and still find dry patches on your body? Well here's how to prevent dry skin, especially during the winter. Make sure that you are moisturizing all over your body, using the right products for your skin, and reapplying as your skin needs.
We tend to have super dry skin when temperatures drop due to the cold, crisp air, which means we need to hydrate our skin a little more than usual. We all know how annoying it is to touch our smooth skin and then notice a rough patch on our body. Sometimes, we just can't help but pick at it!
Here are a few ways to prevent getting more dry patches this winter.
Use a moisturizing lotion: It is important to use a super hydrating cream that works for your body and skin on a daily. It is highly suggested to moisturize your body twice a day or when your body needs it. If you already have a dry patch, it is best to pay special attention to those dry areas when moisturizing.
Less Bath Time: As good as a relaxing bath feels after a long day, soaking our body in hot water can dry our skin. This doesn't mean you can't enjoy the occasional bath, but make sure it isn't too long and too frequent to avoid drying out your skin.
Avoid Extremely Hot Showers: We love the feeling of a hot shower, however, this can actually can be bad for our skin. It can inflame your skin causing redness, itchiness, and even peeling. If you already have a dry patch on your skin, this can worsen it. Avoid hot showers and treat your skin gently.
Get a Humidifier: A humidifier has so many benefits for our body. It can help with breathing, opening up airways, and adding moisture to the air and body. This can be especially helpful in the winter when the air is drier.
