‘Tis the season for dry skin. Winter is here and we are feeling the effects of it throughout our household. From the dry air to itchy hands, everyone in our family seems to experience dry skin issues this time of year. Seasonality coupled with this year’s extra hand washing is making for some extra dry skin.
Are you dealing with winter dry skin issues?
Here are some of the best products + remedies for dry skin:
My go to body wash, especially during the winter months, is Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash. I take baths at night as my wind down time. I love the light, clean scent and that it leaves my skin feeling moisturized despite my usual extra dry skin texture.
I’ve been using Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing lotion to keep my skin from drying out. I love it because it heals dry skin without leaving an oily residue. I try to put it on at night before going to bed and my skin feels smooth and hydrated the next morning.

In addition to these products, there are some simple remedies that you can incorporate into your winter skin rejuvenation to help keep your hands and skin hydrated.
Exfoliate Your Skin
You can use a loofah or a dry brush to naturally exfoliate your skin. It helps get rid of the dead, dry skin. And it helps prepare your skin to soak up the hydration of body wash and lotion to keep your skin moisturized.
Everyone Knows, but it’s Hard to Do:
Drink Enough Water
Where are my water challenge people at? I’ve noticed a huge difference this winter compared to last year since I’ve been keeping myself accountable with my daily water intake. My original goal was 100 oz. a day, but I’m trying to increase it during the winter season. I have a couple of 32 oz. bottles I refill a few times a day, most days. I can definitely feel a difference on the days that I’ve hit my water goal and the days that I didn’t drink enough water.
Skip the Traditional Bar Soap
Plain white bar soap dries out your skin. So I like using body wash for showers and baths for me and the kids. If you prefer bar soap over body wash, then try Dove Beauty Bar with Deep Moisture. It contains moisturizing cream that hydrates your skin while cleaning, too. This is our go-to for handwashing for the whole family.
Taking a daily dose of flaxseed oil can help your skin stay hydrated and moisturized from the inside out.
Avoid Hot Water
Taking a warm bath or shower and washing your hands in warm water is great. But, to curb dry skin issues, avoid hot, steam showers and don’t wash your hands in super hot water.
Hello, mom life – this one is easy for me! I only shave on holidays, OK?! Jokes aside, shaving can irritate your skin and also strip natural oils that help keep your skin from drying out.
Check Your Home Humidifier
Making sure that your the humidity levels in your home are adjusted for the winter season helps to make sure the moisture level indoors is appropriate for the dry weather which can impact dry skin issues.
