Dry skin is an uncomfortable byproduct of winter. Going from an overly heated car or indoor space into the crisp cold winter air can be a real shock to your skin, causing tightening, dehydration, and flaking. Nobody wants that. That’s why we want to share some tried and true home remedies to an annoying problem.
Here are 3 Easy Ways to Prevent Dry Winter Skin
An exfoliating scrub made by concocting lemon juice and sugar leaves your skin soft and glowing. Mix a teaspoon of sugar and mix it with the juice of half a lemon, using cotton balls to scrub all over the face. With a circular massage of the skin with this beauty scrub, rough spots on the face become even. Lemons remove patches on the skin and help skin cells regenerate. Put a jar of it on your nightstand and apply it regularly.
Winter is not a friend to dry skin. The heating in homes evaporates the water from the air, making it very dry. Humidifiers are useful at a time like this by adding moisture to the air and thus hydrating your dry skin. Also, add a few sprays of our Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist to the room to enhance the health and wellness benefits. Eucalyptus in the air will not only open up the bronchial passages for better respiratory health but also cleanse your skin.
Moisture forms a protective layer on the skin by keeping it hydrated. Oils that are easily absorbed by the skin, such as coconut, jojoba, and almond, tend to be better at keeping the real moisture in, allowing the skin the best nourishment possible. Coconut oil makes the skin feel soft and removes its previous scaly characteristic by moistening it naturally. Coconut oil has sufficient amounts of fatty acid that make up for any loss of moisture from the skin. Applying oils like these work best when left on for an entire night. Rub on a generous amount before going to sleep and wash it off in the morning; do this every night. Over-the-counter creams work well in the beginning but only leave a surface layer of hydration.
Drink more water and reduce your caffeine intake. Caffeine dehydrates skin cells and causes inflammation. Drinking water does the opposite; it calms the skin and nourishes the cells, allowing you to adapt to the changing temperatures easily.
