Natural Winter Skin Care Tips



During the winter season, dry indoor temperature as well as reduced humidity outside the house will combine to lead to itchy, dry skin. Just simply putting lotion on your skin isn't enough. The truth is, depending on the ingredients of the lotion, it could possibly  be making your dry skin a whole lot worse. To take care of your family's skin during the winter, try a few natural approaches that work well inside and out. Here are a few natural winter skin care tips.

* Reduce the use of soap. Many of us lather up and scrub in a hot bath or shower without really considering it. However your skin does not need being scrubbed with harsh soap daily. Reserve deodorant soap for important parts of your body, which include under your arms as well as on the bottom of your feet, and use a gentle cleanser on the rest of your sensitive skin.

Soaps that have olive or vegetable oil-based are in fact moisturizing and cleansing. You do not actually need to take any kind of cleaning soap on your body for much of the week. Only a light loofa or net sponge in water is usually more than enough to help keep winter skin healthy. Make use of the gentle cleanser on your body a couple of times a week is good when taking care of your skin during winter.
 
* Natural winter skin care tips-Eat healthy fats. You cannot expect your skin to become moist if it isn't being nourished on the inside. Flax and fish oils are greatfor internal moisturizing. Eat nuts, too, along with other foods rich in "good" fats like avocado. Dip your bread in olive oil or hummus and have salad dressing made from safflower, almond, or olive oil for more healthy fats.

* Keep yourself hydrated, too. We occasionally get so busy hydrating our outsides that many of us overlook the inside. Skin really needs water to get plump and smooth. Make sure you get your six to eight glasses each day, even during winter months when you are not necessarily thirsty.

* Natural winter skin care tips-Humidify your home's air. This can be achieved by using a commercial humidifier, but there are many tricks and tips just for upping your home's humidity. It is possible to dry your laundry indoors on a line, as an example (this was once called "drip-drying"). You may also leave a pot or kettle of warm water on your heater or woodstove (safety permitting), or even just open in the room. It is going to evaporate and increase the humidity even though there is no heat source close to it.

* Make an application of sweet almond oil or coconut oil to your skin after having a bath or shower. These natural skin oils are excellent for your skin, plus they are 100 % natural. Children as well as infants can normally stand sweet almond or coconut oil on their skin.
