Chapped Skin Care Help

by Penny Keay

This time of year is always brutal to our skin. To help keep you skin soft and moist you must do several things.

1) Protect it as much as possible from extreme temperature changes. Exposure even for a few minutes to below normal temperatures can cause damage.

2) Help prevent moisture loss by applying a good lotion or body oil. You don't necessarily need a lot, but you should try to apply something to help "lock" in the moisture.

3) Also, remember to drink plenty of liquids. Many folks forget to drink plenty of fluids in the cooler months. Did you know that in the winter, you can become dehydrated very fast? The best thing to drink ? Plain water. Yeah I know you've been told it before, but Water really is the best!

Once the skin is dry and chapped, you will really need to protect it from further damage.

To help heal and encourage the growth of new skin cells you should apply a cream or oil that has one of two of the following oils added.

Lavender, Carrotseed, Geranium, Neroli, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Roman Chamomile, Jasmine, Rose, and Rosewood.

A little Peppermint added to your lotion will help stimulate the skins own oil glands to produce more oil.

You may need to discontinue using soaps, or use a very mild soap.

Did you know that any lotion can be used to remove makeup and also to clean the skin? Simply apply the lotion to your skin, massage lightly and then rinse off using tepid water.

Try to avoid using lotions that have alcohols listed as an ingredient as they will continue to dry your skin.

To your lotions or creams add a little Rosehip seed oil. It is well known to help heal skin.

Remember to apply lotions or creams several times a day and especially at bedtime.
