Although you may be tempted to take long, hot baths or showers to ward of that winter chill, avoid them; they actually draw moisture out of your skin and make you itchy. Instead, go for tepid, quick showers. If you soak in a warm bath, we recommend using bath oil. Other tips: Use a loofah sponge or a body micro-dermabrasion product regularly with warm water to boost circulation and remove dead skin cells. Follow this by applying a heavy moisturizer to damp skin after bathing or showering to seal in extra moisture. Use products containing humectants such as glycerin, ceramides or triglycerides to attract water to skin and hold onto moisture. Keep humidity in your home at about 50% or use a humidifier.
