5 Top Tips for Dealing with Dry Skin after Winter

After the awful English winter weather comes the problem of dry skin. Too much wind, having the heating on all day, and not enough sun means your skin can feel uncomfortable and lacking in moisture. With nicer weather on the way as spring approaches, here are 5 tips on how to get your skin healthy again and ready for summer.

MoisturiseA Derma Moisturiser

You should moisturise all year round, but it’s especially important after the harshness of winter. Continue to exfoliate and moisturize your body through the winter months to give your skin a boost. A-Derma’s Exomega Emollient Balm is an ideal post-winter moisturiser; it’s been designed for dry skin and it’s fragrance and paraben free.

Reduce length of hot showers and baths

Prolonged hot showers and baths remove the natural oils from your body, reducing the moisture levels in your skin. Taking shorter, cooler baths and showers will help to prevent too much moisture loss. Always remember to moisturise after baths and showers as well, to replace the water your skin will have lost.

Turn the heating down – or even off

It’s understandable that the heating is on during winter, but reducing the humidity of a room reduces the moisture in your skin. When the temperatures outside increases a bit, try to reduce the heat in your home and layer up instead. This is also a good way to save money on your household bills.

Take vitamins regularly

Vitamins are essential to having a healthy body, especially for keeping skin in good condition. Ensure that you take vitamins regularly; also ensure that you eat more foods containing vitamin C, such as oranges, as vitamin C helps keep skin moisturised.

Reduce Dehydration

Lack of moisture in the skin is caused by dehydration. Turning the heating down and taking shorter showers will reduce the amount of moisture your skin loses during the winter, but you also need to increase the amount of water you take in. Drink regularly throughout the day to make sure you’re consuming enough.

You should also consider eating more fish, especially oily fish like salmon and mackerel. The Omega 3 fatty acids in these fish help your body to absorb water, making you more efficient at replacing the moisture you lose.
