Tips on How to Ditch Dryness

While cozying up this winter can warm your heart and keep your spirits bright, the effects on your skin aren’t so cheery. The combination of searing cold air and moisture-zapping heating systems creates the perfect storm for dry, itchy, painful skin. Learn how to protect yourself against the elements to keep your skin glowing, healthy and pain-free this winter.

Shower Strategically

Instead of taking a hot shower for a half hour, try using warm water for a maximum of 10 minutes. You’ll minimize the dryness that happens when scalding water sucks the moisture out of your skin. Bonus tip: Blot your skin dry – rather than rubbing – with a towel and apply moisturizer immediately.
