10 Tips To Keep Your Skin Moisturized In The Winter

This happens to me every year. Winter comes and the dry air it brings dries out my skin causing all sorts of issues and discomfort. I start having itchy, ashy looking skin and have even experienced some skin peeling because of it.

If you've experienced the same I have some good news. There's something we can do about it. We don't have to scratch or hide our dry skin until the weather warms up again. Check out my video below with 10 skincare tips that can help you banish that Winter dryness.

1. Use a gentle cleanser

This winter I'm using the Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Gentle Milk Cleanser and the Noxzema Classic Clean Original Deep Cleansing Cream on my face because of how gently they clean my skin.

On my body, I'm using a store generic bar soap that is equivalent to Dove soap.

2. Stop using hot water

Use lukewarm water instead of hot water and/or wash your face outside of the shower.

3. Use more hydrating lotions

Switch over to thicker lotions for your body. The thicker lotion I'm using this Winter is the Suave Silkening Kotion that is infused with a pure jojoba oil extract. 

For my face, I'm using the Neutrogena Hydroboost City Shield Water Gel because it has SPF but also moisturizes my face without making it feel greasy.

4. Apply lotions to damp skin

To help seal in the moisture from the water.

5. Use hydrating facial sprays

6. Drink more liquids

Some of my favorites are hot tea, flavored water, or water infused with fruit.

7. Keep the air moisturized

Buy a humidifier and use it in the rooms you spend the most time.

8. Use moisturizing face masks

9. Take omega supplements

Omegas help to maintain healthy cell membranes allowing those cells to hold water and make the skin feel more hydrated.

10. Be extra gentle
