Fend Off Dry Skin With These 4 Tips

Flaky brittle skin during the winter months can cause irritation and discomfort. Here are 4 tips you can do now to help relieve dry skin:

  • Hot Showers – daily hot showers during the winter can dry out the natural oils in skin. Solution:  Limit time in the shower to 5 minutes using lukewarm water.
  • Scrubs Are For Floors – friction strips the skin of its natural oils. Solution:  Use a soft wash cloth instead of a sponge scrub or a loofa.
  • Toweling vs Dabbing – the simple act of toweling off after a shower robs the body of moisture. Solution:  Leave the skin partially moist after dabbing most of the water from your skin with a soft towel. Follow that by applying a good lotion or cream such as The Naked Bee which uses natural organic ingredients.
  • Itch In Your Pants –  *Some fabrics such as wool, angora, or synthetic fabric blends irritate the skin. Solution:  Switch to cotton or silk. Love wool? Try wearing a layer of cotton under your favorite itchy sweater or purchase clothing with a soft fabric lining. *Fabric softeners and laundry detergents are packed with strong perfumes and other ingredients that can cause skin discomfort.  Solution:  Use dye-free and fragrance-free products for sensitive skin.
