(BPT) - During the fall, when temperatures drop, skincare steps that were crucial during the hot summer months can often be overlooked because skin isn’t as exposed. Instead of waiting until skin is uncomfortably dry and itchy, make sure you’re moisturizing every day so skin stays soft, smooth and supple. And with all of the gatherings and parties that happen through fall and winter, you want to feel comfortable and confident in whatever you wear – whether it’s a short cocktail dress or a sleeveless top.
So, if you’re the type to hide red, flaky skin under layers of clothing every fall and winter, consider these simple tips that will have you prepared to bare your arms and legs during one of the biggest party seasons.
* Stop the scratching – With dry air comes dry skin, which can cause irritating itchy spots. Scratching those spots damages the skin and leaves red welts amongst the white scaly patches. Add a little moisture into the air at home using a humidifier, especially in the bedroom where you sleep at night. Research by the University of Minnesota found that if the outdoor temperature is between zero and 40 F, and the indoor temperature is set at 70 F, the relative humidity level indoors should be between 30 and 40 percent. Your skin, hair and sinuses will notice the extra humidity indoors, helping you to feel more comfortable in your skin.
