This cold and dry season brings us fashionable boots, sweaters and warm blankets to keep us cozy. The weather and all the covering up combine to leave our skin dry, itchy, red and irritated.
Dr. Schweitzer gives us a few expert tips to keep your skin hydrated and supple all winter long!
Limit your baths during this season and opt for a lukewarm shower.
Use a soft cotton towel and don't rub your skin, gently pat dry your skin instead.
Apply a rich moisturizer while your skin is still damp. Opt for oil based moisturizers during winter such as Epionce Renewal Enriched Body Lotion or Medical Barrier Cream.
Apply a nourishing face moisturizer during the evening such as NeoStrata Dermal Replenishment to repair and hydrate your skin.
Invest in a humidifier to keep your environment moist and give your skin much needed hydration.
Use sunscreen daily as harmful UV rays can penetrate through clouds even on dark dreary cold days.
