As the weather cools down, you may find yourself reaching for your deep hydrating cream more often than you did in the warmer months. This is because winter and the cold weather that comes along with it can lead to a number of different skin care issues. Instead of suffering through the cold months with uncomfortable, unsightly skin, follow these few simple tips to treat some of the most common problems that people have with their winter skin.
Deep Hydrating Cream for Dry Skin
The most common issue that people have with their skin in the winter is that it becomes dryer than normal, especially for folks who have a dry skin type to begin with. When your skin is exposed to the colder temperatures, it stops producing as much natural oil as it once did. This leads to skin that feels tight and possibly even itchy. You should be using your deep hydrating cream twice a day all year long but, during the winter months, you may want to carry it in your handbag so you can reapply as you are exposed to the cold air throughout the day.
Painful Chapped Skin
When dry skin is not properly treated with deep hydrating cream, it can escalate until it actually becomes chapped, similar to the skin on your lips. Chapped skin can be extremely painful and may even lead to minor abrasions on the face. You can, of course, avoid this situation by using deep hydrating cream at the first sign of excessively dry skin. If you do not do that, however, you will want to add a medicated healing lotion to your routine until your chapped skin heals.
The Scalp Is Skin Too
You may have noticed that you are more prone to dandruff during the winter months but may not have connected your hair issues to your skin health. Proper care of your scalp is an important part of a comprehensive skin care routine. When the skin on your scalp becomes dry, it will start to peel and flake, resulting in the condition we know as dandruff. Switching to a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner during the winter months to keep your scalp hydrated and comfortable.
