In these dry winter months our skin becomes dry, cracked and itchy. But it doesn’t have to be that way! We’ve got some tips and tricks to help you tackle your itchy skin, no matter how severe it may be.
1. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
Let’s start with the basics, moisturizing! You’re probably sick of hearing that, but the key to hydrating skin starts with moisturizing. Using a lotion free of fragrances and any irritating ingredients is perfect. For full-body coverage, give our Skin Wise Organics Calming Body Lotion a try.
2. Shower with lukewarm water
Although we all love a hot shower, hot water dries out skin and worsens itchy conditions. Start showering with lukewarm water and for less than 10 minutes to keep your skin itch-free.
3. Wear loose-fitting clothes
Be mindful of the clothes you are wearing and if they worsen your itchy skin conditions. Loose fitting, cotton clothing can help your skin stay itch-free. If your skin is extremely sensitive, try switching to a sensitive detergent and avoid fabric softener to see if you get some relief.
4. Create a protective layer.
For highly irritated skin, our Skin Wise Organics Soothing Barrier Ointment creates a protective layer to soothe skin. For people with especially dry, sensitive and compromised skin, this ointment can protect from the elements, providing relief from itching.
The key to itch-free skin is being consistent; change doesn’t take place in a few days. Keep moisturizing and stay on top of your daily skin care regimen to tackle dry skin. Your skin will thank you for it!
