2. Apply a face mask once a week.

You can’t go wrong with a hydrating face mask. If you want to, you can do this weekly, but it’s okay to go longer if you don’t have time. A mask with Hyaluronic acid has extremely hydrating properties and leaves the skin feeling so soft and smooth all day long.


3. Make sure you drink water throughout the day.

This may sound like a no-brainer, but it’s important to stay hydrated during the winter when you’re dealing with dry skin. Drinking water will help your body produce more oil and keep your skin moist. It will also make your skin look healthier and more nourished as a result. Aim for at least 64 ounces per day.


4. Avoid hot showers and baths.

I know you probably love long showers and baths, but they can be harmful for your skin if you have dry skin. Instead, shorten the length of your shower by turning the temperature down just a little bit, or opt for using lukewarm water instead of hot water. The former option should help prevent dryness in your skin.


5. Add oil to your daily routine.

There are many different kinds of oil you can add to your daily routine to combat dryness in your skin, including coconut oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil, and argan oil. Massaging these oils into your skin will help rehydrate it from the inside out, leaving it feeling soft and smooth all day long. Plus, these oils will also make your skin appear more youthful, which is definitely something to look forward to!
