Improve the look and feel of your skin this winter

Winter can leave your skin feeling dry and looking ashy. And, if you don’t treat it right away, your skin may start to crack in certain areas, like the heel of your foot. Irritated skin is not only uncomfortable but it can leave you feeling insecure about your appearance.

So, how do improve the look and feel of your skin this winter? Here are some tips to help you.

Avoid harsh soaps

Strong soaps may leave you feeling cleaner but they can also dry out your skin. Perfumed and scented soaps can further dry out your skin, so rather go for moisturising products. You should also avoid using too much soap on irritated areas.

Be careful with washcloths and sponges

If you have to use a washcloth or sponge on your skin, don’t scrub. Avoid adding pressure on the area and dab instead of rubbing it. The same goes for when you’re drying yourself after a bath or shower.

Watch the heat when you shower or bath

Hot water for long periods of time can take the moisture out of your skin. As much as you might want nothing more than a hot shower in the cold weather, warm water is much better. Also try to spend less time in the shower or bath (keep it to between five and 10 minutes).

Moisturise regularly

As soon as you get out the shower or bath and you’ve dried yourself, put on cream. You can moisturise more often than this, but it’s important you do it after you’ve been in the water. Of course, Ingram’s is perfect for taking care of dry skin.

Stay hydrated

Water is important for the health of your body as well as your skin. Experts say you should drink a minimum of six glasses of water a day. This will keep your skin hydrated and feeling good. You’ll soon notice the difference this can have on dry or ashy skin. 

It’s important for your comfort and self-confidence that you keep your skin looking and feeling good this winter. Follow these tips and you’ll see the results. Remember, healthy skin is beautiful skin.
