Cold weather causes skin problems that become annoying especially for those with dry and sensitive skin type. To prevent this, people with dry skin need to take extra care of their skin in cold weather. We have listed a few suggestions for you to survive the winter season with the least damage and to protect your dry skin from the negative effects of cold weather. Here are those skin care tips…
Moisturize your skin
Humidifiers are essential in cold weather. The most important issue when fighting cold weather should be how you moisturize your skin. After you take a hot shower, use perfume-free and highly moisturizing products to lock the moisture into your skin. Make sure that the moisturizers you use contain ingredients such as glycerin, lactic acid, sorbitol, hyaluronic acid, alpha hydroxy acid.
Benefit from body lotion
Your face isn’t the only place that gets dry. Adding moisture to your body will prevent the side effects of cracks and dryness.
Make use of oils
Natural oils are very helpful products in moisturizing your skin. Shea butter, almond oil, jojoba oil, petrolatum and mineral oils are among the oils you can use to moisturize your skin.
Avoid products containing alcohol
Forget antibacterial soaps, perfumed products, and any products that contain alcohol. Soaps containing perfume and alcohol can dry your skin in cold weather and cause it to stretch even more.
Include omega-3 rich foods in your diet. Eating cereal salads, fish, smoothies with clean ingredients and eggs will be very good for your skin.
