6 Tips to Avoid for skin Dryness During This Christmas

Christmas is definitely in the cold December air, but water isn’t, and this may cause problems for our skin.
The holiday season here in the country may not be characterized by freezing temperatures, but the cold, less humid weather is sucking moisture from our skin, causing it to be cracked and dry.Winter Skin care

“When the skin gets dry, it gets itchy, then we scratch it. That’s when irritation happens. It’s itch-scratch-itch-rash. Then the skin thickens,”

“It’s really more on less humidity, not cold temperature. There’s a shortage of water in the air, so the air is dry.”

8 tips to make your skin good this Christmas despite the cold, dry air:Skin care

1. Continue to use sunscreen with SPF 15 of better, even if it’s cloudy outside. Apply sunblock 30 minutes prior to exposure to the sun, and re-apply after 2 to 3 hours.

2. Use an unscented mild cleanser as opposed to soap, which can strip your skin of the essential oils it needs.

3. Continue to drink lots of water (6 to 8 glasses a day) to provide the necessary hydration for your skin.natural beauty

4. Avoid products with high alcohol content as well as heavy perfumes. These can irritate your sensitive, dry skin. Try to keep an anti-itch cream on hand to apply to excessively dry patches.

5. Use a thicker, richer moisturizer 2 to 3 times a day. Gently exfoliate your skin to remove the dead surface skin cells that can form due to excessive dryness.

6. Use a soothing lip balm or moisturizing lipstick, preferably with sunscreen, to treat chapped lips.

  1. Finally, scientists have developed advanced treatments that won’t allow itchy skin to keep you from making the most of the season. According to Dr. Michael Southall, a leading scientist at Johnson & Johnson’s Skin Research Center, there are new ways to help ensure against extreme itch. Until now, over-the-counter remedies have included topical hydrocortisone treatments that provided only temporary relief. A new breakthrough technology has revamped the anti-itch category, allowing hydrocortisone to stay on skin for a longer period of time. These new products not only soothe and heal but can also last up to 12 hours, making for a successful day at work or play and a peaceful night’s rest.”
