Avoid bathing too frequently, especially with harsh soaps, as it may contribute to dry skin
Following the same skin care routine year-round may not work so well when the humidity drops. Without a change in your skin care, dry air can make fine lines and wrinkles more noticeable. Dry, itchy skin can flake, crack, and even bleed.
Say yes to warm water and no to hot water. The problem is that hot shower or bath strips your body of its natural oil barrier, and you need that barrier to help trap moisture and keep your skin smooth and moist.
Use gentle cleanser instead of soap. Harsh detergents in soap can strip away the natural moisturizing oils in your skin. This can cause dryness, irritation, and inflammation. Soap-free cleansers work on your skin the same way as soap, but they’re made of milder ingredients that don’t deplete skin’s oils.
