Winter Weather As the outside temperatures drop, so does the humidity levels and many of us find the dry air leaves us with dry itchy skin. Don't touch that thermostat! Indoor heating strips moisture from the air - and your skin. Control the Humidity A humidifier will help to keep the air most in your home. Keep the temperature at 68 to 75 degrees, and the humidifier between 45% and 55%.

Nix Hot Steam Showers
A steamy shower is tempting and soothing, but it doesn't do your skin any favors. It strips the natural oils and causes moisture to escape.

After your shower, towel dry your skin, but leave it a little bit moist and apply moisturizer to still-damp skin to seal in moisture.


Be Careful of Moisture Robbing Soaps
Not all soaps are created equal - if you're washing your skin with a harsh soap your skin's natural moisture barrier is going down the drain with the excess water.

Use a mild soap or body wash that moisturizes at it cleanses your skin.
