If your dry skin seems particularly bad during the winter months, you’re not alone. Try these tips to help banish dry skin.
- Drink more water.
According to NaturalSkinCareSecrets.com, your body loses water when you exercise or are cooped up with heated air inside during colder weather. In these situations, you should increase your water intake.
- Add paraffin to your next manicure.
If your cuticles are torn or you have cuts around them because your skin is dry, paraffin can be a great help. Paraffin wax is mainly used as a sealant and as a preservative because it can help retain moisture and prevent spoilage. When used on your hands, it can help smooth and soften them.
- Use steam during a facial.
Steam is hydrating, clears up breakouts and creates the appearance of smoother skin. Through steam, oxygen is brought into your face which increasing your circulation and almost instantly gives you a more youthful appearance.
- Plug in your humidifier.
Skincareforwrinkles.com says if you use a humidifier:
- Your skin will be plumper after just a few days.
- Fine lines may disappear.
- Skin will be more youthful looking.
- Your complexion will be smoother.
- Skin will feel fresher.
