How to Keep Skin from Getting Dry
Use a cleanser specifically for dry skin. Start this before winter so your skin is already prepared for the cold temps. Just avoid most bar soaps, which will cause dryness by removing skin’s natural oils.
Use a thick moisturizer every day and night, especially if you go outside.
Don’t shower in really hot water. I know, it’s hard. All I want in the winter is a nice hot shower, but it’ll dry your skin out super quickly
Drink water. This is always important and you should drink at least 8 glasses a day, but it’s especially important for skin during the cold winter months. Moisturizing the skin from the inside will keep it healthy on the outside.
Use face masks that have hydrating properties at least once a week to ensure your face doesn’t get dry and cracked. Try masks with hyaluronic acid, honey, glycerin, cucumber, olive oil, and rose.
