As winter approaches your skin can feel dry, itchy and uncomfortable. As with each season, to have radiant skin, you have to adopt a new set of skin care regimes. Dermatologists assert that continuing a basic skin care routine in winter, can ensure, youthful, hydrated skin until Spring comes back around.

Hydrate:

First, keep your skin hydrated at all times by drinking plenty of water. Always carry a refillable bottle with you whenever you are going out. You can also choose to drink any assortment of hot, herbal teas when the temperatures drop - this is equally as hydrating and provides additional nutrients to support a healthy glow.

Moisturize Face and Body:

Depending on your skin type, you might want to shift from your regular water-based moisturizers to an oil-based moisturizer. This will assist in protecting your skin from any kind of extreme moisture loss. Water-based lotions and creams generally absorb faster and dry out more easily instead of keeping your skin soft and supple. Select moisturizers that contain a natural oil, like jojoba or grapeseed, as the key ingredient. Many studies have revealedthat the application of jojoba oil has helped to reduce stretch marks and wrinkles. Grapeseed Oil is an effective antioxidant that has been proven tobenefit aging skin.

For very dry and dehydrated skin, intensive moisturizing creams are designed to plump wrinkles and quench dry, rough patches. Choose a cream that contains a combination of vitamins and soothing plants and minerals that penetrate the skin and maintains the moisture level for around 12 hours. With the use of an intensive moisturizer your complexion will become healthier, softer and younger looking.

Switch from a gel-based or harsh acne facial cleansers to a moisturizing cream cleanser instead.

The face and lips get little protection from harsh winter winds and cold. Try not lick your lips as that reduces moisture faster. Keep your bag stashed with soothing lip balms. You can also use a herbal mixture of few drops of honey and olive oil for few minutes to hydrate the skin on your lips.

Moisturize Your Whole Body

Body butter is an intense moisturizer that those with extremely dry, winter skin should choose. The end product is much richer than standard creams and lotions. They come in a wide assortment and can includeingredients like Chamomile, Aloe Vera, or Rosemary. Body butters help hydrate skin to its maximum and usually contain natural seed and nut oils such as Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter. Nut oils are full of Vitamin E and A, and can help in skin rejuvenation. Regularly apply body butter to your entire body to form a protective skin layer and prevent moisture loss in the winter.

Just because the flip flops are in the closet does not mean you can ignore your feet.

Each morning, wash and apply a refreshing foot moisturizing cream to keep your feet soft and supple all day long. Heavy winter boots and thick socks can cause calluses and dry, cracked feet. At least once every week use a pumice scrub on your foot pad and heel to remove dead skin.

If you are a pedicure fan, it can be difficult to maintain long, styled nails during the winter months. Toenails should be trimmed regularly to prevent ingrown nails and infections while wearing heavy winter shoes.

Sun Protection:

Just because summer is over it does not mean that you will say goodbye to your sunscreen. Always use a sunscreen lotion or block if you are exposing your skin to any sunlight over 15 minutes. The lotion should be SPF 15 at least. Look for creams that contain the mineral Zinc Oxide - a natural sunblock. The winter sun is actually more harmful than the summer sun due to reflective rays on snowfall and thinner air. You can also select a sunscreen product that doubles as a moisturizer.

Hot Baths and Heaters:

When cold weather approaches, many choose to soak in long hot baths instead of quick, mild showers and turn up the heat. Just be careful to not overdo the drying effects of hot water and air. Instead, make baths moisturizing with natural oil drops or nourishing milk. You can go for a sweet almond bath or a jojoba oil bath. Just put a few drops of oil in your bath water to nourish your skin instead of stripping it. And if you like to crank up the hot air,think about adding a humidifier to your room to keep the moisture loss to aminimum.

Winter doesn't have to be a drag for your skin. Treat dry skin with plenty of hydration and love to ensure that radiance and glow lasts all year long.
