Hydrate Your Skin This Winter

Posted Feb 01 2011 4:00pm

The winter months can be tough on your skin. Chapped lips , dry hands and feet, and itchy skin are common during the cold weather months and you should always take action to maintain your skin in good condition.

Healthy and soft skin can be kept with continues hydration. Many products can sooth and heal your skin naturally and prevent dehydration, the most common cause of cracked skin.

Dry climates are just one of the reasons people have dry skin. On the other hand, too much and too hot water can also damage skin. Many people wash their hands constantly as some jobs require hand washing multiple times for hygienic reasons.

You should wash your hands with warm and, sometimes, hot water to prevent diseases, but if you need to do that many times a day, how can you stop your hands from getting dry?

A few skin care tips may help. Applying a moisturizing lotion should treat most minor cases, but if you are experience severe damaged skin, cracked skin or small cuts with occasional bleeding, start using moisturizing hand soaps.

Aloe vera is one of the best products to treat damaged skin and can be used on a daily basis. It heals dry and damaged skin in all stages, from dry fingers to hands with cuts and calluses. It moisturizes quickly, easily penetrating the skin. Damp skin generally absorbs moisturizers better, so be sure to wash your hands but do not fully dry them before applying the product.

In addition, avoid harsher cleansers such as dish soaps and heavy duty household cleansers. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water, always a good idea to maintain healthy skin.
