Winter is upon us!


 This winter is predicted to be milder than average, but winter is still winter and, in New York, that means cold air and dry, cracked skin. So what can you do about it?

 Cold outdoor air is not always the culprit, indoors, we’re cranking up the heat to keep warm, which can lead to an evaporative effect that can dry the skin further. Remaining properly hydrated is critical. We tend to forget about this when it’s not hot outside, but keeping the body hydrated keeps the skin hydrated as well.

Here are some tips to help you through the winter:

 We tend to start adding to the problem first thing in the morning by hopping in a hot shower. That may feel good at first, but immediately, when you step out into the cooler air, it draws more moisture out of the skin and adds to the problem. So, turn down the heat.

 The other thing we do wrong is rub the towel across our skin to dry off. Not only does the rubbing action itself further irritate dry skin, but again you’re removing more moisture. Always smooth lotion on damp skin. You've heard it before, but did you know you have a three-minute window for best results? Wait any longer and moisture starts to disappear from skin before you can lock it in.

 Milk does a body good—the natural fats and lactic acid in milk can soften skin, lightly exfoliate, and abate irritation. Draw yourself a nourishing bath by adding two cups of skim milk to warm—not hot—water. Soak for about 15 minutes, pat skin dry, and apply moisturizer...remember the 3 minute rule!

 Want to mix up the routine a bit? Wash your face once a week with Greek yogurt. It sounds weird, but the lactic acid works as a gentle, non-abrasive exfoliator. For a moisturizing face mask, take a look in the kitchen before heading down the beauty aisle: Bananas, avocado, egg yolk, and milk can all make great moisturizing face treatments.
