Health Tip: Seasonal Skin Care

(HealthDay News) -- Everyone is susceptible to dry skin during winter. As we age, our skin becomes thinner and drier, but harsh winters can irritate anyone's skin, the American Academy of Dermatology says.

To help dry skin in the cold weather, you can:

  • Use an oil-based moisturizer. Oil creates a protective layer on the skin.
  • Wear sunscreen. The winter sun and snow glare can dry out your skin.
  • Hook up a humidifier. More moisture in the air will rehydrate your body.
  • Take warm, not hot baths. Hot baths break down important barriers in the skin that keep it hydrated.
