I think it’s fair to say WINTER is finally here! Are you experience more than normal dry skin, due to the brutal cold winds? Last week on the Dr. Oz show he mentioned how important it is to keep your body moisturized during the winter months. He also said showering with hot water will dehydrate the skin. So, turn down the HOT water, and use warm water when bathing and showering.
The key to combating dry skin is moisturizing. The first step is to exfoliate to remove the barrier of dead skin cells on the top layer of your skin. Think about it, if you have a pile of dry skin the creams, butters or lotions will not be able to penetrate the skin, which will ultimate increase dryness of your skin. Therefore, this is why exfoliation is very important to include in your skin care regimen. Try to exfoliate at least 2-3 times per week to see results. The next step is to cleanse your skin with a moisturizing soap, preferably soaps made with natural oils and butters (not the commercial bars found in stores). One of my customers shared with me that commercial soap dry out her skin. I recommended for her to use moisturizing soaps as I am recommending the same for you. Finally, after you have exfoliated and cleansed, you must now moisturized your skin.
