Wondering why your skin dries out more during the winter?
Dry skin can be a pain to have to deal with, its no fun it can cause the skin to be tight and itchy. Ever wondered why your skin gets so dry during the winter as appose to any other season? Well here’s the scoop on why your skin gets so dry during the winter and I will also tell you how to tackle dry skin and maintain a healthy glow. Not moisturizing the skin daily can worsen the condition of dry skin making sure that you use products that are formulated naturally will benefit the skin even more.
Dry skin is especially common in the winter months when the humidity level outside drops. When the air outside is cold and dry, the water in your skin evaporates more quickly; this makes your skin feel dry and tight and makes it look flaky. In fact, your skin loses more than 25 percent of its ability to hold moisture in the winter. Windy weather especially if you enjoy winter sports outdoors can also beat down on your skin and make it look and feel dry and chapped.
Here are a few tips on how to protect your skin during the cold climate. Wearing protective clothing, gloves, and scarves to shield it from the elements can help protect your skin. Be sure to apply a rich moisturizing product such as a lotion or a body butter cream. If you have extremely dry skin than using a body butter cream will benefit your skin more.

What Can you do to prevent dry skin?
To prevent dry skin, you want to make sure that you are moisturizing the skin daily, most people skip this part of their skincare routine. Sometimes finding the right product that will moisturize your skin for a long period of time can also cause people to skip moisturizing. I cannot tell you how often washing my hands at work and not being able to keep them moisturized caused me to stop putting on lotion altogether. It became very frustrating that my favorite skincare products Bath and Body Works was no longer doing the trick for my skin. It got worse and it became so dry and chapped that I could no longer stand to keep using it. When I switched to creating and using my own skincare products, I noticed how much better my skin looked. And I didn’t have to constantly keep putting on so much skincare products in order to keep my skin hydrated and moisturize.
Apply a rich moisturizer after handwashing, showering or taking a bath is going to benefit your skin in so many ways. It’s going to immediately lock in the moisture and fight dehydration of the skin. Using harsh soaps can also further out the drying of the skin since most commercial soaps contain lots of harmful chemicals and toxins. Using these soaps will do your skin more harm than good. I always recommend using our natural handmade Castile soap to customers because it’s formulated naturally using oils such as Olive, Shea and Castor oil. This type of soap is even recommended for the most sensitive skin types such as eczema and psoriasis. Castile soap will not dry your skin out it will add the necessary moisture that it needs.
