How to Treat Dry Skin

With winter approaching it is time to get prepared for the dry skin that will wreak havoc upon our lives. After all, the chill of the season is dreadfully bad for us and takes as much moisture as it can from our skin; leaving it coarse, rough and unimaginably dry. Luckily there are a few ways to fight back and The Healthy Living and Fitness team have got you covered! Here is how to treat stubborn dry skin…

Avoid Hot Water

During winter one of the main habits that most people have is taking a hot shower in the morning. Whilst this is soothing, hot water exacerbates dry skin and is an incredibly bad method of showering because the water strips the skin of its natural oils and we need this barrier in order to trap the moisture that prevents dryness. Try to keep the temperature warm rather than hot.

Be Gentle

Dryness is not only caused by winter, it can be a result of irritation which is why you should always treat your skin with care in order to prevent it becoming worse. Use products that are made for dry skin and never exfoliate more than 3 times a week regardless of what the internet says!


When it comes down to it nothing can help dry skin better than regular and consistent moisturising. After all, dryness cannot be cured overnight and in order to get rid of it you have to invest time into a moisturising routine to see results.

For many people dry skin is the most challenging condition to deal with and is often a part of everyday life. In fact, it can be a nightmare to find products that are suitable for use!
