Winter may be the most magical time of the year, but it’s also the driest. This means chapped lips, itchy scalps and parched skin are typical for the season — but it doesn’t have to be that way.
“It’s very important to use hydrating products during the winter because your skin and hair can become dry, itchy, and flaky due to the cold, wind, heat, and low humidity,” says NYC Aesthetic Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Richard Swift, M.D., who suggests drinking at least eight glasses of water each day.
“Another tip to boost the skin’s moisture content is to use products that contain hyaluronic acid. This substance will help plump the skin and lock in moisture.”
No need to fret over freezing temperatures and wind-whipped skin. To combat these ailments, here are a number of head-to-solutions to keep hydrated.
