How to Soften Dry Winter Skin

How to Soften Dry Winter Skin

Dry, itchy winter skin can be more than an annoyance during a typical Massachusetts winter. The dry air that accompanies indoor heating can strip away your skin’s natural oils and leave it feeling (and looking) like sandpaper.

If you’re just sitting back and taking it – men and women alike – it’s time to stop singing the dry skin blues. Here are a few proven-effective ways how:

  • Choose the right moisturizer. Many popular lotions contain harsh ingredients that only make the problem worse. Skip by those and reach for natural coconut or almond based lotions to replenish the moisture your home and cold winter winds are depriving you of.

 

  • Exfoliate once a week to remove dead skin. In addition, wash your hands gently with a non-drying body wash.

 

  • As tempting as it might be, keep your water heater thermostat at 120 degrees (the recommended setting). The hotter the water, the drier your skin.

 

  • Use a body moisturizer right after you shower or bathe while your skin is still damp. And yes, even in the winter, don’t forget the sunscreen on bright, sunny days. Especially if you plan to be outdoors for an extended amount of time.

 

  • If your hands are super dry, apply a thin layer of moisturizing oil before bed. To avoid getting oil on your bed linens, wear thin, breathable gloves or socks.

 

Here at Correct Temp, we have a dynamic and effective solution of our own:  a whole-house humidifier.  It works hand in hand with your heating system to resupply your home with the moisture otherwise lost. Plus, you can set the humidity level and change it at will. For more information and a free system proposal, contact Correct Temp today.
