Did you know that today, January 8th, is National Winter Skin Relief Day? If you are suffering from dry skin in winter, we’ve got some tips to help you out!
Is itchy dry skin in winter getting you down? It seems like the older we get, the harder it is to keep our skin hydrated and supple, huh? At least that’s what I’ve found! After I hit my 30’s my skin decided to lose at least 50% of its moisture and it’s a constant battle to keep my skin soft and supple now, especially in the winter! I slather my feet with lotion before bed and by the time I wake up, they are dry again! It’s a constant battle and I need reminders to drink enough water to help combat the dryness too.
If you find it hard to keep your skin hydrated and it feels like it’s just withering up with the harsh weather, here are a few things I’ve found that help fix dry skin in winter!
Use A Humidifier In Your Bedroom

If you notice you need to water your plants a lot more often, chances are you need to pay extra attention to your skin too. Not only will your skin dry out from the dry, hot air your furnace produces, it can dry out sinuses causing stuffiness and even nose bleeds. Take measure to prevent the uncomfortable side effects of the dry heat in your house by putting a cool mist humidifier in your bedroom at night to help fight dry skin in winter.
You can find cool mist humidifiers in most stores like Target and Walmart as well as online on Amazon.

It quickly absorbs into wet skin, mixing with the water droplets left on your skin and delivering moisture deep below the surface to relieve dryness, itchiness and help you fight dry skin in winter.
