How to Avoid Itchy Skin in WinterJan 28, 2021
Warm weather isn’t coming anytime soon. Luckily, we still have another few months of Minnesota winter left to enjoy some wintery activity!
Cold temperatures, harsh winds and a dry atmosphere can dry out your skin, leading to itchy, flaky skin. The good news is that there are ways to keep your complexion healthy and moisturized all winter.
1) Place a daily moisturizing lotion or cream on your skin every day. Especially after washing your hands or taking showers and baths. Aveeno, Cerave, Eucerin and Cetaphil all offer great products.
2) Protect your skin against the brutal wind with a hat, scarf and mittens.
3) Use a humidifier in your home to combat the dryness caused by furnaces and radiators.
If you’re taking all of these steps but still not finding relief, then you should schedule an appointment with our dermatology clinic. We’ll help you create a regimen to help your skin stay healthy each season throughout the year.
