Baby Your Skin All Winter Long

by timetospa December 20, 2012
Baby Your Skin All Winter Long

It's always a good idea to treat your skin well, but in the winter, it's especially important to give it a little TLC. Because humidity levels are dropping outside and that dry heat is coming on in your home, your skin is being sapped of moisture and might be feeling itchy and tight or looking drab as a result. While it's important to invest in a good skin care product for your face during this time of year, your whole body deserves to be babied! Here are some tips to keep your skin soft and hydrated.

Shorten that shower
Not only will shortening your shower save on your water bill, it might also help your skin and hair! It might sound tempting to spend 20 minutes in a steaming hot shower during the chilly winter months, but hot water can be drying to your skin, and the longer you spend in there, the worse the dehydration. Instead, steam up your bathroom by running the hot water to warm up, and then hop in for 10 minutes, finishing with a cool rinse.

Watch where you wash
According to dermatologist Amy Wechsler, you don't always need to sudse up from head to toe. For instance, unless you have been exercising vigorously, there's no real need to scrub your forearms with a dehydrating antibacterial body wash, she told Allure Magazine. When you do need to scrub all over, use a moisturizing body skincare product like Elemis Spa At Home Skin Nourishing Shower Cream. With fruit and nut oils plus oat and wheat extracts, this wash cleanses the skin without stripping moisture.

That said, you might also want to get specific with the placement of other products. For example, if your elbows, knees and feet get dry, flaky and rough, you might want to use an exfoliator like Bliss Blood Orange and White Pepper Sugar Scrub 12 oz on just these areas to smooth away the dead skin.

Makeover your moisturizing routine
One great way to lock in moisture to your skin during the winter is to slather on your Mandara Spa Citrus Spice Moisturising Body Lotion while you are still in that steamy bathroom. Wechsler says this is the perfect time because your pores are still wide so the lotion's hydrating properties will be absorbed fully into the skin. You might also find you want to moisturize twice a day or double up on a certain area.

Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.                  P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!|

Can I just now say what a relief to seek out one who in fact knows what theyre dealing with on-line. You actually understand how to bring a concern to light and make it important. Lots more people need to see this and understand why side in the story. I cant believe youre less common since you also certainly hold the gift.
