materials. Additionally, consider using a hypoallergenic laundry
detergent for your clothes.
When heading out the door, remember to wear gloves or
mittens made of a natural fiber (like cotton), to prevent your
hands from drying out. Our hands get very dry during winter
from a lot of irritants, so they're important to protect. Also considering wearing waterproof gloves if your hands are frequently
in water. Keep a small bottle of hand cream in your coat to keep
your hands moisturized on the go. And, don't forget lip balm.
At home, try to stay warm without exposing your skin directly
to open heat sources like fireplaces or heaters. Consider using a
humidifier to keep more moisture in the air.
With these simple tips, you can prevent dry skin this winter.
If these tips don't provide enough relief, you may need to see
a dermatologist. Sometimes dry skin requires a prescription
strength topical ointment or cream or can be a sign of skin
conditions that require treatment. Your dermatologist can help
you create a personalized winter skin care plan, and keep your
skin looking great all year round.
