Best 10 Winter Skin Care Tips To Reduce Chapping, Redness & Itching

Here are top 10 home remedies for dry skin to Keep Skin Soft and Glowing In Winter

1. Hydrate for Your Health, Not for Your Skin

If you've heard it once, you've heard it a thousand times: Drinking water helps your skin stay young looking. In fact, it's a myth. Water is good for your overall health and "the skin of someone who is severely dehydrated will benefit from fluids. But the average person's skin does not reflect the amount of water being drunk," Kenneth Bielinski, MD, a dermatologist in Oak Lawn, Ill., tells WebMD "It's a very common misconception."
LaPlante agrees. "I see clients at the spa who drink their 10 to 12 glasses of water a day and still have superdry skin. It just doesn't do that much."

2. Face Packs

Winter care for dry skin means applying homemade hydrating masks to lock in moisture. Use readily available ingredients like honey, buttermilk, avocado, yogurt, olive and jojoba oils, almond oil, bananas and aloe.


3. Put oil on water

Oil doesn't "moisturize" any better than cream does. But applied over dampness, it helps keep some of that extra water in the top layer of the epidermis. It's also a great layering option especially for dry complexions desperate for oil as well as water. Apply something like Smashbox Primer Oil before moisturizer (or mix it with moisturizer), or massage a couple of drops into skin before foundation for a glow boost.

4. Glove up

Anything that creates an occlusive barrier (i.e., traps moisture) on skin helps lotions and creams soak in. So slip on some cotton gloves over lotion to help moisturize parched hands.
"Even wearing them for an hour can really soften up your skin,"

5. For very dry skin

- If your skin is very dry and dehydrated, avoid using soap.


- Apply a lemon-turmeric cream before washing or bathing. It protects the skin from further moisture depletion. It also softens the skin. The healing property of turmeric soothes and cures dehydrated skin.
- After a bath, apply a body lotion while the skin is still damp. It helps to seal the moisture.

6. Use DIY Masks

Homemade hydrating masks can provide needed moisture in the winter months. Use natural moisturizing ingredients like honey, avocado, yogurt, olive and jojoba oils, almond oil, bananas, and aloe. Mix what you like together to create a cream or paste, and leave on skin for 10-30 minutes for lasting hydration.

7. Give Your Hands a Hand

The skin on your hands is thinner than on most parts of the body and has fewer oil glands. That means it's harder to keep your hands moist, especially in cold, dry weather. This can lead to itchiness and cracking. Wear gloves when you go outside; if you need to wear wool to keep your hands warm, slip on a thin cotton glove first, to avoid any irritation the wool might cause.

8. Scrubbing

Scrubbing should be an integral part of your beauty routine. In winter, however, limit scrubbing to once or twice a week and use a mild product.

9. Layer layer

If you can't take heavy textures on your face, consider a serum followed by a lighter-weight cream. The most potent part of any skincare ritual, serums consist of small molecules that the top layer of skin can absorb. Apply first, so your face cream can then serve as a protective barrier to trap the serum molecules against your skin.

10. Moisturize Immediately Afterwards

Your skin not only needs more moisture, but moisture right after you wash. Applying moisture to damp skin helps seal that dampness into the skin. Keep a bottle near the bathtub, shower stall, and at every sink and use liberally every time you wash.
