Take Care Of Your Skin In Winter

Of course, being able to enjoy your smooth and hair-free after laser hair removal means you need to take care of your skin! Winter can leave your skin feeling dry, itchy, and irritated. Here are 5 tips on how to counteract Winter’s bothersome effects on your skin.

1. Invest In A Humidifier To Maximize Moisture

Using a humidifier in your home or office will add moisture to dry winter air and help keep your skin hydrated. Run a humidifier in the rooms you spend the most time in, including your bedroom.

2. Lower The Thermostat To Avoid Dryness

When it’s chilly outside, what’s the first thing you want to do is crank up the heat. But central heat can make the air in your house even drier. Try setting the thermostat at a cool yet comfortable setting — 68°F to 72°F — to maintain healthy skin.

3. Limit Shower Time And Temperature

It may be tempting to take a long, steamy shower, but your skin will be much better served with a 5- to 10-minute lukewarm shower (or bath). You should also avoid using excessively hot water when washing your hands — if the water causes your skin to turn red, it’s too hot. Washing your hands in cooler water appears to be as effective at removing germs as warm water and is less irritating to the skin, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If you’re using a restroom air hand-dryer, use it just until your hands are damp rather than perfectly dry.

4. Opt For Gentle, Fragrance-Free Cleansers

The wrong soap can worsen itchy, dry skin. For instance, regular bar soaps may contain irritating ingredients and fragrances. Instead, wash with a fragrance-free, moisturizing cleanser or gel. Be sure to look for products specifically labeled “fragrance-free,” because “unscented” products may actually contain fragrances. You can also prevent winter skin problems by using less soap overall, so limit your lathering to necessary areas, such as your hands, armpits, genitals, and feet.

5. Modify Your Facial Skin-Care Regimen For The Season

During the winter months, choose cream-based cleansers, and apply toners and astringents sparingly, if at all. Many astringents contain alcohol, which can further dry your skin. When your skin is dry and itchy, you should stop using products that contain alcohol and fragrances in order to help skin retain its natural oils. At night, use a richer moisturizer on your face.

And don’t forget your lips. Applying a moisturizing balm (such as petroleum jelly or another ointment) can help heal dry, cracked lips and keep them from getting chapped. If, however, your lip product causes a stinging or tingling sensation, try switching to a different product.
