1. When it is cold outside, instead of prolonging our hot showers and baths- a recipe for irritated and dry skin- use lukewarm, not hot, water and keep the shower as brief as possible. Also switch to moisture-rich less aggressive soaps made for sensitive skin. Try to pat gently yourself dry to avoid traumatizing or skin over drying. Do not forget to apply moisturizer while your skin is still slightly damp.
2. Whether you have psoriasis, eczema or severe dry skin called as xerosis, you need to return on any moisture the dry air takes away. As soon as the weather gets dry, alarm yourself to start a regular moisturizing. The best time to do it is right after you bathe. To get better results you can wrap the problem areas in plastic wrap for about 20 minutes to one hour after moisturizing. Your skin will baby soft!
