How to Prevent Dry Scaly Skin in the Winter

Cold weather dries out our hair and skin. There are a few ways you can prevent your skin from becoming dry and scaly in the winter. Try a few of our tips.


1. Exfoliate your skin in the shower 1-2 times a week. This will get rid of the dead and dry layers of skin.

2. After exiting the shower, pat your skin with a towel until you are damp then apply a creamy moisturizer. Be sure not to dry yourself off completely. Your damp skin will help lock in the moisture from your lotions and creams.

3. If lotion doesn't do the trick, try a product with a thicker consistency, like cocoa butter or raw shea butter.
