Moisturize Your Skin During These Cold Days

Whenever the cold breeze is on, you can be sure that skin dryness would be also on a high. When the humidity is low, it can really be such an antagonist for your skin that you suddenly feel your skin withering in dryness that you find bits and pieces of skin sometimes even tearing off from your face. According to experts, it is normal for people’s skin to get totally dry during the winter season and the rest of the cold months.

But there are some easy things you can do to take care of your skin during this time of the year.

· If you have enough budget for your skin regimen, then invest on a skin humidifier.

· Make sure that your moisturizer is oil based – if possible the ingredients should be 80% oil and about 20% water.

· You have to stay warm and prepare luke warm water for bathing. Make sure that it is not overly hot.

· Get more oil massages to build up layer of oils to prevent moisture from getting out of your body. This can also help make you feel relaxed after a long day at work.

· Apply some petroleum jelly on your face and other spots of your body that tend to dry up fast. Make this a habit before you take a bath – this is my personal beauty regimen!
