Invest in a Humidifier
The colder months don’t just bring a chill to your spine, they bring dryer air that can leave your skin cracked and irritated. One of the best ways to ensure that your home has enough moisture in the air is by using a humidifier. Keeping a humidifier running through the winter will help keep moisture in the air that keeps your skin hydrated and fresh. Keep one in your living room and bedroom for the best results! Get your humidifier from The Online Drugstore and have it delivered in no time when you shop today.
Limit Shower Time
While a long, hot shower on a cold winter day may sound like a little piece of paradise, the longer you immerse your skin in the hot water, the dryer it will become. Hot water can dry out your skin and cause cracking. Keep your showers to 5-10 minutes and be sure to apply lotion while your skin is still a little damp for maximum effectiveness.
This tip may seem obvious, but you can maintain healthy and happy skin during the colder season by moisturizing more frequently than usual. Every time you wash your hands, follow it up with an application of your favorite hand lotion or moisturizer. As hand-washing in your home may have increased over the last few months during the spread of COVID, you may have noticed that your hands have become increasingly dry with each and every wash. If you start applying lotions as often as you are washing your hands, your skin will thank you.

Sunscreen in the winter? Yep, you read that right. Even on winter days, if the sun is out, you and your skin can be exposed to the harmful UV rays. Applying a moisturizing sunscreen before spending time outside will not only protect your skin from its rays, but it will help your skin stay hydrated while spending time in the cold winter air.
Eat Healthy & Stay Hydrated
Oftentimes, the health of your skin starts on the inside. That means that yes, the more water you drink on a regular basis, the more hydrated your skin will look and feel. Lotions and moisturizers aren’t the only way to keep your skin looking and feeling its best. By drinking plenty of water and consuming a healthy and nutritious diet, your skin and your body will feel better than ever during the winter season.
