Health Tip: Change Your Skin Routine During Winter

Avoid long, hot showers

(HealthDay News) -- Healthy skin looks radiant, but it may need a little extra TLC during the winter months.

The American Osteopathic Association suggests these steps for healthier winter skin:

  • Since hot water can make skin lose moisture, take shorter warm showers and baths.
  • Use a gentle, light exfoliator to slough off dead skin cells.
  • Don't pick at or peel dry skin.
  • Switch to an oil-based moisturizer that includes sun protection factor. Reapply throughout the day if you'll be outside.
  • Run a humidifier to keep home air moist.
  • If your clothes get wet, remove them as soon as possible to avoid irritating the skin.
