Tip # 1 – Bathe briefly
- Stick to a brief shower using lukewarm water as hot water tends to dry out the skin faster
- Use soaps designed for dry skin
- Pat yourself gently after a shower to avoid excessive drying of the skin
- Apply lotion following a shower while the skin is still moist
Tip # 2 – Use Moisturizer
Utah is known for having a dry climate during the winter due to the snow and harsh cold. To keep the skin healthy, you want to moisturize as much as possible. Whether you have eczema or psoriasis, you want to make sure you have lotion to keep the dry air from stealing it away from your skin.
