Winter can wreak havoc on your skin making it dry, itchy, and irritated. It can feel like there’s no escape. Even the things that make Winter wonderful, such as taking a hot shower might seem like a good way to warm up, but hot water dries out your skin by stripping it of its natural oils. And once it starts to get dry, the skin can more easily crack and bleed.
Keeping moisture in the skin
Think of the epidermal skin cells as an arrangement of roof shingles held together by a lipid-rich "glue" that keeps the skin cells flat, smooth, and in place. Water loss accelerates when the glue is loosened by sun damage, over-cleansing, scrubbing, or underlying medical conditions or by Winter's low humidity and the drying effects of indoor heat. The result is roughness, flaking, itching, cracking, and sometimes a burning sensation.
Caring for skin when dealing with the colder weather takes just a little extra time and effort because the conditions are rather extreme for our soft, sometimes sensitive exterior. Low humidity is common in colder climates stealing moisture from skin every second. Then, once indoors, it's faced with dry heat. This is why it’s so important to keep the moisture you have. Skin moisturizers, which rehydrate the epidermis and seal in the moisture, are the first step in combating dry skin.
