Gorgeous skin is a trend that will never die. No matter your age, it’s a sign of vitality. However, in winter, skin has a harder time retaining moisture. Heat indoors and windy, cold conditions outdoors are a recipe for dry, tight-feeling skin at risk for developing eczema or psoriasis.

Here’s four skin care tips to keep your skin moisturized during the winter:

• Tip 1 – Read the label – Look for moisturizers with glycerin or fatty acids. If you’re confused about the products, discuss your concerns with a licensed dermatologist for a skin evaluation and product suggestions.

• Tip 2 – Cover up – When you go outside, be sure to protect your skin from the cold and wind with gloves and scarves. However, avoid wool which can cause skin irritation.

• Tip 3 – Learn to love lukewarm water – Use mild to lukewarm water when bathing. Unfortunately, hot water strip off the skin’s natural oils, making it more susceptible to drying out.

• Tip 4 – Humidify your home – Use a humidifier in your home to help transform your home into a skin-friendly oasis. Your skin will thank you.

Now, take a moment and look at yourself in the mirror. Do you like what you see? Following these skin care tips today, will give your skin a fresh, supple look and feel so don’t hesitate.
