The cold winter weather is known to present a unique set of challenges for your skin. Cold dry winter air with low humidity can rob your skin of moisture thus leading to dry skin.
Indoor heat can further strip away moisture from the skin, leaving it dry and prone to cracking, chapping, redness and itching. During winter months at Spring Mist Spa, we treat many clients who are suffering from complications of dehydrated dry skin. So, keep your skin hydrated and healthy during winter months by taking some proactive steps. Here are some tips on how you can protect yourself against dry skin and its complications.
Avoid hot showers – Only use lukewarm water. Moisturize immediately after a shower or washing, to seal in the moisture. We recommend Dr. Spiller moisturizers from Spring Mist Spa with natural, hydrating ingredients like lavender, chamomile and jojoba. These ingredients help to soothe dry, itchy skin.
Drink water – Your skin needs hydration from inside out. Drinking plenty of water each day is a great way to prevent dry skin. A little warm water with lemon can be very refreshing and hydrating.
Consume fruits and vegetables with high water content – Also, remember to Increase your intake of vitamin C and zinc to support healthy production of collagen and elastin.
Use homemade hydrating masks – Give your skin additional moisture by mixing a few natural moisturizing ingredients like honey, avocado, yogurt, olive and jojoba oils, almond oil, bananas and aloe. Create a paste and apply to skin for 10-30 minutes.
