The main culprits are cold air, which holds less moisture than warm air, and low humidity. But winter and cold weather also hits harder as you get older, partly because of changes in your body over which you have little control. The result: Your skin becomes rough, flaky, and itchy and your eyes, red and irritated. It's not just a matter of comfort or appearance. Dryness can also leave you vulnerable to a host of potentially dangerous infections and injuries (such as scratched corneas) and exacerbate existing problems (like eczema and psoriasis). These simple skin care beauty tips for soothing skin, eyes, and hair can help you survive the cold weather season.
USE CREAMY CLEANSERS
Opt for mild face and body washes—the milkier looking, the better. Steer clear of harsh detergents such as triclosan and ammonium lauryl sulfate; instead, check the label for gentle surfactants like sodium laureth sulfate and cocoamidopropyl betaine.
SLATHER ON RICH MOISTURISERS
Post-shower, pat skin dry and apply an oil-based cream instead of a lighter lotion to better trap and lock moisture into skin to fight cold weather dryness. To boost absorption, warm your jar of cream in a sink of hot water while you shower.
MOISTURISE AGAIN BEFORE BED
Hydrate skin at least twice a day is always ideal—after a morning shower or bath and then right before turning in for the night. There is a slight elevation in body temperature when a person sleeps, so moisturising products seep into the skin better.
