Winters are fun but when it comes to our skin, they are the most who suffer. Chilling winter days can cause our skin to dry, crack, and we feel itchy and irritated. In this blog, we are going to discuss some of the ways that can help you combat the winter days without having to harm your skin health.
These tips can help your skin remain healthy throughout the winter season. So make sure you try them.
Without wasting any further time, let’s dive into details.
#1 Have a Humidifier by Your Side
The use of a humidifier in the home or office premises allows your skin to soak in the moisturized dry winter air. This ultimately helps our skin to remain hydrated for a long time. The best way is to run a humidifier in the rooms you spend most of the time of your day and in your bedroom as well.
#2 Keep Your Shower Time Short
The best thing in the winter is bathing with warm water for a long time. However, this can cause a lot of damage. AAD suggests that our skin is better served when we shower for 5 – 10 minutes with lukewarm water. Avoid using excessively hot water for hand wash, it can cause redness of your skin. It is scientifically proved that washing hands with cooler water tends to remove germs more effectively than the warm water and is less irritating for sure.
#3 Change Out Wet Clothes to Prevent Itchy Skin
Wearing wet clothes and shoes can further add itchiness to the skin. So, it is suggested to change out any clothing that is wet as soon as possible.
#4 Apply Sunscreen regularly
It is tempting to play in the snow or have a walk through a park enjoying the winter sun. But remember one thing it is very important to apply sunscreen in the chilling winter days as it is necessary for the hot summer days. Applying sunscreen can help your screen to fight the harmful UV rays of the sun.
Never get fooled by the cloudy and dreary winter days, either. Make sure you apply sunscreen these days as well because the face it is the sun’s UV rays can penetrate the cloud as well and still cause damage to your skin. Dermatologists suggest applying a moisturizing, broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF of 15 or higher on exposed body parts while roaming around.
#5 Moisturize Your Hands Frequently
Dry and chapped hands are one of the most common winter skin problems faced by most people. They tend to crack, peel, and bleed, when your skin care is neglected, and this may turn into eczema, psoriasis, and other severe skin conditions. So, it is necessary to use cream or ointment in the winter season to keep your hand moisturized. Applying hand cream after each wash can also help. In addition to that, it is recommended to use waterproof gloves while washing dishes or clothes.
#6 Put on appropriate, comfortable and non-irritating clothing
Wear light layers of clothes made from soft fabrics and breathable materials directly against your skin, then put on heavy sweaters or jackets over them. It is advised not to wear woolen clothes directly in touch with your skin because they cause irritation to the skin and yes you feel itchy as well. Take the necessary steps to prevent skin damage to your hand. Use gloves that don’t irritate your skin. In case you prefer wearing woolen gloves make sure you put on cotton gloves liners first.
#7 Choose Gentle, Fragrance-Free Cleansers
There are many instances where the use of wrong soap worsens the itchiness and dryness of the skin and causes a lot of skin problems. The regular bar soap you use may contain ingredients that might be irritating for your skin. Ensure that you use fragrance-free, moisturizing cleanser or gel.
Additionally, to prevent winter skin problems you can restrict yourself from using soaps and limit their use on your body’s important parts only.
Note: If you are experiencing skin problems even after trying all this, you need to see a dermatologist for better skincare. Happy Winters!
