We’ve turned the air conditioner off in our home and I am enjoying this time where neither the air nor the heat is needed. Once the temps drop and the heat comes on my dry skin goes into overdrive and to say my skin has it rough is an understatement.
My skin gets so dry in the winter especially on my thighs. I will literally scratch my thighs until little red rashes appear. Unbelievably the Dr. seems to think I just have extremely dry skin and somehow just missed the chart rating for eczema so I often turn to lotions and creams that I can buy at the store to get some relief.
There are a number of things that I can do at home to lessen my flare ups. I’ve used these tips in the past but haven’t been consistent. This year, now that I am being more intentional about things I plan to implement and keep my new regimen of skincare to ensure my skin is well moisturized lessening my chances of discomfort this upcoming winter.
Here are a few tips to make sure that you keep your skin well moisturized this fall and winter season.
1. Bathe in lukewarm, not hot water. This one will be hard for me, the hotter my water is the better.
2. Use a soap free cleanser like Curél Itch Defense. Soap dries your skin out, this cleanser is soap and fragrance free. Contains Jojoba and Olive oils and with continued use will relieve itchy skin in just 4 days.
3. Consistently using the Curél Itch Defense lotion. This lotion with its advanced ceramide therapy promises to not just relieve the symptoms of dry skin but to over time prevent the symptoms from occurring. Sign me up!
The latter part of the year is definitely my favorite and hopefully I can get my skin under control with the Curél Itch Defense line of products.
I have received Curél products to facilitate this post. All thoughts and opinions are solely my own.
