Baby, it’s dry outside… but your skin doesn’t need to be!
Yes, winter is upon us and personally, I love the warm, toasty feeling I get being wrapped up in my favorite cozy sweaters or blankets, or settled in front of a fire with my loved ones on cold, wintry nights.
But the cold, dry air outside and the warm, dry air indoor during the winter months can also wreak havoc on the skin. I get really dry, dull, flaky, and itchy skin around this time of year which is why, I’m totally serious when it comes to giving my skin extra TLC, especially in the cold winter weather when my skin seems to suffer a lot more.
Winter Skin Care Tips
Fortunately, I have a trusted dermatologist that I go to for the best advice on taking care of my skin. These days you can simply choose a teledermatology service to give you advice so you don’t even need to go to a clinic.
Here are a few (that I personally follow) on keeping one’s skin hydrated, glowing and supple during the harsh winter months:
- Hot drinks like cocoa and tea are great, but our skin needs hydration from the inside out. So drink lots of water everyday! I make my drinking water more refreshing by adding fresh lemon slices to it.
- Heating systems can dry out the air, so installing a humidifier in your home can put moisture back into the air and helps prevent skin from drying out.
- Don’t forget to wear gloves and scarves to protect skin from the cold, harsh winds, rain and snow.
- Hot showers and baths can strip natural oils from your skin, leaving skin to dry out quickly. So choose lukewarm water and apply a good skin moisturizer as your second step after drying off.
AmLactin Skin Care (and why I love them!)
To help keep my skin well hydrated in the winter (or in any season!), I choose the dermatologist-recommended AmLactin brand of skin care products.
I used a different brand of body lotion and skin care moisturizers in the past, but since adding AmLactin to my daily skin care regimen just a few short months ago, I’ve noticed a lot of great changes in my skin – especially in the rougher, dryer areas like my hands, elbows and knees.
I mean, who doesn’t want soft, supple, healthy-looking skin?
AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion Go beyond everyday lotions with this powerful alpha-hydroxy therapy. Clinically proven 12% lactic acid, pH-balanced for the skin, boosts the skin’s natural renewal process through gentle exfoliation and deeply moisturizes. Reveals softer, smoother skin. (This is my “go-to” body lotion now and I use it right after I step out of my shower or bath to keep my skin always soft and hydrated).
AmLactin® Ultra Hydrating Body Cream Say goodbye to those dry, pesky areas! Our patented ULTRAPLEX® formula gently exfoliates and is clinically proven to deeply hydrate. Helps smooth rough, dry, bumpy skin—including dry skin associated with Keratosis Pilaris (“KP”). (This is the lotion that’s been treating the driest parts of my body so incredibly good. My overly dry hands, knees and elbows love this lotion! )

It’s the only formula to combine clinically proven, patented ULTRAPLEX® and three essential ceramides to relieve extreme dryness for 24 hours. Uncover visibly soft, silky, youthful-looking skin.

AmLactin® Foot Cream – Kick dry skin for good with daily use of healing foot therapy. Our patented ULTRAPLEX® formula gently exfoliates and is clinically proven to intensely hydrate. Helps prevent splits and cracks while smoothing calluses. Experience touchable, soft feet from heel to toe. (My feet have never been so soft and smooth after only two weeks of daily use! I alternate using this with the AmLactin Cerapeutic and the combo is amazing on my feet! )
