Tips To Alleviate Winter Dry Skin #sponsored

I have really dry skin, especially in the winter time. My skin often gets so dry, that it hurts and can be quite itchy. No one loves to have dry skin and I find myself using all different types of lotion to alleviate the dryness. Having allergies can make choosing lotions difficult as I often find that lotions have strong perfumes that bother me. So, based on my experience, I have compiled some ways to help alleviate winter dry skin.

Tips To Alleviate Winter Dry Skin

1. Stay Hydrated – I find that the less dehydrated I am, the less dry my skin is, too. This makes perfect sense, right?

2. Stay Away From Skin Irritants – Different seasons offer different things that can dry out skin. I find that wool does this to me, and I find it scratchy. So, I avoid it.

3. Avoid Hot Showers – Hot showers are great, but not for my skin. The longer I stay in a hot shower, the scratchier and dryer my skin feels when I get out.

4. Use Body Scrub – Body Scrub can help remove dead skin cells. In the end, you get softer, healthier skin. Again, avoid scents that will bother or irritate your skin. We make outs homemade so that we know what goes in it.

5. Use A Great Lotion – Personally, I love Vaseline Intensive Care Lotions. Two of my personal favorites are Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant with pure cocoa butter and Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe. Both lotions are thick and rich and smell amazing. They leave my skin feeling smooth and moisturized and the Cocoa Radiant scent also makes me smell like I am at the beach – so I especially love that.

6. Check Out Some Reviews – Learn about skincare products before you commit to a purchase. You can read a lot of reviews about skincare products at Skin Care In Review.

  4. I need to check these out as the regular Vaseline lotion just doesn’t cut it for me during winter. I’d love to not feel like an alligator for half of the year.

  7. I bought some of the lip therapy and I love it. That cocoa scent sounds like just my kind of skin therapy!

  8. that whole “Stay Away From Skin Irritants” is a big pitfall for me. For some reason my family just won’t accept that washing dishes is a skin irritant therefore I shouldn’t have to do them. lol.
    It is so nice to know I have quality lotion to use afterwards since washing dishes really DOES irriate my skin. lol.

  9. Great tips. Ive used There lotions for years. Thanks for sharing.

  10. I have never had issues with dry skin until the last couple of Winters and now I truly know how painful and irritating it can be! Those are all great tips I’ll have to keep in mind 🙂
