Remedies for Dry Skin Season

Happy New 2014 Year!  It’s January, which for many of us is dry skin season!  So what can we do?  I searched around for remedies that we can easily use.  As always, check on the link for details.

  • Take short showers (no more than 10 minutes) and use warm water. “Hot water might feel good on a cold morning, but it strips skin of its natural oils, leaving it dehydrated and itchy,” says David Bank, MD, a dermatologist in Mount Kisco, NY.
  • Use creamy cleansers.
  • Opt for mild face and body washes—the milkier looking, the better. Steer clear of harsh detergents such as triclosan and ammonium lauryl sulfate; instead, check the label for gentle surfactants like sodium laureth sulfate and cocoamidopropyl betaine.
  • Slather on a rich moisturizer.
  • Postshower, pat skin dry and apply an oil-based cream instead of a lighter lotion to better trap and lock moisture into skin to fight cold weather dryness.
  • To boost absorption, warm your jar of cream in a sink of hot water while you shower.

Moisturize again before bed

  • Hydrating skin at least twice a day is ideal—after a morning shower or bath and then right before turning in for the night. “There’s a slight elevation in body temperature while you’re sleeping, so products seep into skin better,” says Dr. Bank.
  • Slip into gloves and socks at night.
  • Dampen hands and feet, slather on cream, and wear cotton gloves and socks for a few hours or to bed—they’ll block evaporation and help the cream penetrate more effectively, says Dr. Day.
