As winter approaches, air cools and becomes less humid. Now is the time to winterize your skin, just as you might winterize your car or house.
- Start moisturizing now, to minimize your risk when winter sets in. Dry skin is often more sensitive skin.
- Moisturize at least once a day, as soon as you are done showering. A moistruizing wash in the shower can also help.
- The drier your skin, the thicker the moisturizer you should use. Lotions are thinner than creams which are thinner than ointments.
- Look for products containing ceramide, an ingredient that helps replace the skins natural oils.
- Take warm showers rather than hot showers in the winter.
- Just because it is cold, do not forget your daily facial sunscreen. UVA rays are constant year round.
