There’s so much to love about winter—the holiday season, the snowy landscapes, hot cocoa by the fire. Unfortunately, for all there’s to love about winter, “Jack Frost nipping at your nose” is a bit of a pain. That chilly winter wind can really dry out your skin. So, here are a few tips to keep your skin soft and moisturized all winter long.
Add Coconut Milk to Your Shower
Here’s a trick you’ve probably never heard of—coconut shower milk. Coconut milk is incredibly good for your skin and can keep it soft and glowing even in the harshest winter wind. So, look for a shower gel that includes this ingredient, and be sure to lather up every day to keep that skin from drying out.
Pay Attention to Your Diet
It’s always important to pay attention to your diet. But in winter, there are a few subtle changes you might want to make that can help keep your skin moisturized from the inside out. Try to increase your intake of healthy fats like walnuts, avocados, and olive oil. Also, try to stay away from caffeinated drinks and alcohol. It’s fine to have the occasional cup of coffee or glass of wine, but those can actually dehydrate you (and your skin), so focus instead on drinking lots of water.
Get a Humidifier
If the air in your home is dry, your skin is going to be dry. So, consider putting a humidifier in whatever room you spend the most time in. Most people tend to keep theirs in the bedroom but living rooms or study rooms can also be great places for your humidifier as well. Increasing the moisture levels in a room even slightly can help to keep your skin from getting too dry.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Finally, make moisturizing a part of your daily routine—several times a day. Moisturize when you get up in the morning. Apply lotion on your lunch break. Moisturize when you get home. And slather on a thick body moisturizer after your evening shower. If you want to keep your skin soft and supple, you must be rigorous about your moisturizing routine all winter long.
