Thanksgiving is over, and we’re entering into the midst of the holiday season. Many consider this the most wonderful time of the year, but it’s definitely not the best time of the year for your skin. The cold weather ahead is bound to leave your skin dry and itchy. Moving from your warm house or apartment to the cold outside, and then to an overheated office is bound to leave your skin worse for the wear. Not to mention that what you’re wearing to keep warm can also be wreaking havoc on your poor, over-dried skin. Men, here is your full-proof Cheat Sheet survival guide to take care of your dry skin woes all season long.
1. Be mindful of your shower time
It’s no secret that taking a long, hot shower can harm your skin and dry it out. “Shower for too long and you’llremove important oils from your skin,” says dermatologist Dr. Anjali Mahto to FashionBeans. Mahto recommends keeping your shower short and warm. It’s best to start the day by giving your skin a fighting chance by not over drying it. While you’re in there, try to avoid using soap, which can actually be your worst enemy not only during the normal months of the year, but also during the winter months.
2. Moisturize, moisturize, and moisturize
As the weather conditions change, so too should your skin care routine. WebMD recommends finding an ointment moisturizer that’s oil-based, rather than water-based because the oil will create a protective layer on the skin that will be able to retain more moisture than a cream or lotion. Many lotions that are labeled as “night creams” are actually oil-based, which will ultimately be beneficial as they allow moisture to build overnight.
