What Causes Dry Skin in Winter?

Most of us have had to tackle dry, itchy skin before, but it generally becomes more of a nuisance in the winter months. Cold temperatures, wind, and low humidity in the air can increase moisture loss, leading to dry skin.  

Check out our ultimate guide to tackling dry skin in winter. We take you through our top tips and recommend the best products to use for dry skin caused by the cold weather. 

Tips for Tackling Dry, Itchy Skin in Winter

Follow these tips to help relieve your itchy, dry skin in winter 

Tip 1 – No hot baths

In the colder months, it can be tempting to take an extra hot bath or shower, but your dry skin won’t thank you. Hot water can dry your skin out, so try and stick to lukewarm water!  

Tip 2 – Hydrate

Hydrating on the inside is just as important as the outside. So, it’s crucial to keep your water intake up in the winter months and keep aiming for those two liters a day!  

Tip 3 – Humidify

When you crank the heat up in the winter months, you’re actually drying out your skin. Investing in a humidifier can help your skin retain its moisture.  

Tip 4 – Use SPF

It can be tempting to cut sunscreen out of your skincare routine in the winter. Is it really needed? Yes! 

UV rays are present all year long, so it’s essential to keep SPF in your morning routine.
