As much as we love the nippy winters (sarcasm, it’s -20 degrees Celsius in Edmonton, AB), they can have some adverse effects on one’s skin.

During this season, dry skin does not secrete enough sebum (oil) due to low temperatures, which causes the hydration levels in the skin to fall causing it to itch.

One solution is a rich, creamy moisturizer that will lend you optimum hydration.

A common myth is oily skin doesn’t need just as much moisturizing as dry skin.

Those with oily skin need hydration in order to prevent the skin from producing more oil but it has to be a mild moisturizer that doesn’t end up being greasy on their skin.

Neutrogena has a great moisturizer that is lightweight, non-greasy lotion and keeps skin moisturized. It has a sheer formula that absorbs quickly into skin leaving it softer and smoother.

Pond’s Moisturizing Cold Cream is great if you have dry, sensitive skin or skin that is easily irritated. It deeply nourishes and equips you to fight dry itchy winter skin. It also works as a cleansing agent as it goes deep and removes all the impurities in the skin.

Another great and affordable moisturizer is VaselineTotal Moisture Cocoa Butter Body Lotion.
Vaseline is known for keeping skin healthy-looking and soft, by adding pure Cocoa Butter to the formula, it locks in moisture for naturally glowing skin. – You can’t go wrong!

If you have skin that feels extremely itchy and stiff during the winter season, opt for lukewarm showers.
You might crave hot showers but taking shorter baths or using lukewarm water in the shower will help skin keep its moisture. Hot water baths break down lipid barriers in your skin, which leads to moisture loss.

With these useful winter skin care tips, problematic skin will be a thing of the past!
