Lou Paradise, president and chief of research at Topical BioMedics, makers of Topricin Pain Relief and Healing Cream has some tips for keeping skin moisturized in dry, cold weather:
-Drink lots of water. Keeping hydrated helps plump skin up and makes it healthier.
-Choose gentle, natural moisturizers. Common ingredients found in many commercial moisturizers include contain petrolatum and silicone, which can cause skin irritation or allergic reactions.
-Skip harsh soaps. The soap you’re using – even if it says ‘gentle’ on the package – might be leaching your skin of its lipids. All-natural, oiled-based cleansers like castile soap are a better choice for dry skin.
-Shower in lukewarm water. Long, hot showers and baths are tempting when the temperatures drop, but hot water is hard on your skin and strips it of its natural oils.
-Don’t rub! After bathing or showering, quickly and gently pat the skin partially dry with a towel.
-Lock in the moisture. Within three minutes of getting out of the after apply a moisturizer to seal the water in the skin so it stays hydrated longer.
-Exfoliate regularly. Help your body shed the dead skin cells that can build up visibly when your skin is dry. Use a loofah or body scrub made with coarse ingredients to buff your skin so it becomes soft and smooth.
-Use a humidifier. Increase the humidity level of air of your home and workplaces, if possible and consider adding a humidifier to the central heating system of your home.
-Don’t forget to use sunscreen. It is just as easy to get sunburn in February as it is in July.
