When your body doesn’t have enough water, it will quickly lead to dry skin. Dryness can occur from many sources, but moisturizing yourself from the inside out is one of the easiest and cheapest remedies. It is recommended that you drink at least 60 ounces of water per day for the best health and hydration benefits.
Use a Humidifier
Keeping the air inside your home more hydrated will help to keep your skin satisfied. If you have space at your work, you could even bring a small humidifier with you to promote healthy skin at all times throughout your day! In your house, focus on humidifying whichever rooms you constantly spend time in so that you reap the benefits as much as possible. You could also invest in a house humidifier that can offer a higher output and work to keep your whole home comfortable.
Control Your Showers
It’s very tempting to take long, hot showers or baths as the temperatures outside drop, but it will be better for your skin if you take showers that are warm and only last 5 to 10 minutes. This applies to washing your hands as well. It’s important to keep yourself clean, but using the least amount of hot water possible will increase your skin’s health. Hot water evaporates quickly, and removes moisture from your skin. When the skin is not moisturized quickly afterwards, it can lead to cracking, itchy skin and eczema.
Yes, you even need to use sunscreen in the winter! The harmful rays of the sun still penetrate the clouds, so make sure you put protection on any skin that will be exposed when you are spending time outside. The rays of the sun can even reflect off the snow on the ground and cause burns to your face and eyes!
Hopefully these quick and easy tips will help your skin look and feel healthy this year, so you can avoid all of the stereotypical winter itches and pains.
