If your skin has been dry lately, you’re not alone. Cold weather, harsh winds, and dry indoor air all conspire to suck the moisture out of skin during the winter months, leaving it dry, cracked, and scaly. “Winter dryness strikes where your oil glands are weakest,” “Cheeks, arms, and legs have almost no sebaceous oil glands and are therefore drier in winter months.” And since the skin on your hands is thinner than in other places it needs extra protection and care. Cold weather and winds can also aggravate your skin, particularly if you’re a vata (already prone to dry skin).

Here are 5 Ways To keep your skin smooth and hydrated this winter

1. Avoid taking long hot baths or showers, or using saunas, during the winter months. 

Hot water can rob the skin of its moisture. Instead, use moderate-temperature water for shorter periods of time.

2. Lubricate skin after showering or bathing. Apply the oils or moisturizer to the skin when it’s slightly damp. That way, moisture becomes trapped in the skin rather than evaporating in the air. 

Good option is Environ’s A, C & E oil, it assists in shielding your skin from the effects of harsh weather conditions especially the exposed areas such as hand, arms, décolleté, legs and feet.  It also helps to nourish and condition the appearance of your skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple.

3. Exfoliate dry skin as often as needed.

We recommend using the Environ Derma-Lac Lotion – Derma-Lac is a light fragranced lotion that helps to soften rough areas on your skin, such as elbows and heels, whilst also helping to boost skins moisture levels.  It energises dull, tired looking skin, and assists in gently exfoliating the skin and in improving skin tone and texture, leaving is looking healthy and beautiful.

4. Use a humidifier to keep moisture in your home and office air, or keep a bowl of water on your radiators to add moisture to the air.

The higher the heat indoors, the less humidity there will be. (It’s the humidity that helps keep skin from drying out.)

5. Check the labels on your skincare products, and avoid toners and other products that contain alcohol and nasty chemicals, which can dry out the skin
