Natural Skincare Remedies For Dry Winter Skin
A natural skin care routine can minimize the aggravation of dry skin, which can be caused by heat, hot showers, harsh soaps, and erratic climate conditions.
Your skin naturally produces oil, called sebum, which helps protect the skin from moisture loss, but everyday actions — such as forgetting to put on moisturizer or washing your hands with a drying soap can add to the existing conditions.
Thankfully, there are natural skincare remedies that can help alleviate dry winter skin.

winter skincare tips
It's often a good idea to keep it simple when modifying your skin care for the winter. Pure oils have a natural base, making them great dry-skin remedies.
Skip skin care products with harsh chemicals that can irritate dry skin. Avoid harsh bar soaps, rough towels, and don’t forget to apply moisturizer to your hands after washing!
Try to avoid water that is scalding hot in the bath or shower as that can also exacerbate dry skin conditions. Apply moisturizer or body oil soon after bathing and your skin will soak it up.
And it’s not a myth: you still need sunscreen in winter!
