How to keep moisturize your skin

There's nothing worse than dry, itchy skin. It can happen anytime, but for most people dry skin seems to be more of a problem in winter when temperatures and low humidity combine with harsh winds to strip away the skin's natural lipid layer. There are things you can do to add moisture back into your skin and things to avoid that will rob your skin of what moisture it already has. Follow these tips and be kinder to your skin, starting today!

How to do-

It's often a good idea to keep it simple when it comes to beauty care, especially for people with allergies or a very sensitive complexion. Unlike water-based lotions and creams or those containing preservatives, pure oils have a natural base, making them great dry skin remedies.

A facial mask made of avocado is a great way to nourish dry skin, as avocado contains healthy fats and a variety of nutrients that help to hydrate the skin.

For younger looking skin, lock-in moisture by applying a cream or lotion within three minutes of exiting the bathtub or shower.

Exfoliation gets rid of dry top layers of dead skin cells and helps bring newer, moist skin cells closer to the surface. And exfoliated skin better absorbs topical moisturizers to seal moisture into the skin. Exfoliate your body in a lukewarm shower with a gentle salt or sugar rub.

We tend to drink less water in the winter because we turn to hot drinks like cocoa and tea, but don’t forget that your skin needs hydration from the inside, out. A little warm water with lemon can be very refreshing and hydrating at the same time.

Dryer areas like hands, feet, elbows, and knees have thin skin and tend to lose moisture faster than other areas on the body. Consider slathering on a deep moisturizing balm Skin at night.

Use a loofah daily to keep ingrown hairs and scaly skin under control. While in the shower, gently scrub bumpy or scaly skin with a circular motion to remove dead cells. For extra-smooth skin, sprinkle a few drops of an alpha-hydroxy product on the loofah before scrubbing.
