[show_avatar email=ejones@seattleskinandlaser.com align=left show_name=true]Just like the seasons change, our skin changes seasonally as well. With winter in full swing you may be noticing your skin is suddenly itchy, dry, and looking kind of dull. Increase the frequency of moisturizing to twice a day and bump up to a cream instead of lotion. These simple things will help bring your skin back to life!

Here are a few more easy tips and recommendations to ward off winter itchiness:

  • Use mild cleansers on face and body. No bar soaps.
  • Shower with warm, not hot water.
  • Moisturize within first 3 minutes after exiting the shower, from head to toe.
  • Keep a pump lotion by each sink so you can moisturize right after each hand washing.
