Dry Winter Skin: That Certain Something

Of course you deserve a long luxurious shower with gels and oils and the fabulous natural sponge. But did you know you could be robbing your winter dry skin? Your skin is approximately 30 percent less supple in winter than in summer. The combination of cold, dry air and indoor heating can cause major moisture deprivation. When the natural moisture evaporates from the top layer of skin, which is no thicker than a sheet of paper, it often leaves you with drier, itchier and older looking skin. And who wants to look older? A hot shower may feel great, but as soon as you step out, your skin begins to lose moisture. Try showering in warm water and limit it to five or ten minutes. Moisturize within three minutes to seal in the water. Try not to overuse products containing alpha hydroxy acids. They exfoliate the top layer of the skin, but they may leave the new layer unprotected. And switch from a glass of wine to a glass of water. Alcohol and caffeine both can dehydrate the body. Experts say oats products can help lock in moisture to form a protective layer. You can get a product with the oats already inside to give you that certain something!
