I'm already using the omega 3 and coconut oil, which helps with healthy skin. Here's some things you can do to avoid dry, itchy, winter skin problems...
Winter Got You Feeling Dry and Itchy? Virtually All the Rescue Remedies Can Be Found in Your Kitchen
Reduced humidity combined with colder temperatures tends to wreak havoc on your skin. Many suffer with dry, scaly, itchy skin during winter months even if they don’t have a diagnosable skin problem like eczema.
This is commonly referred to as “winter itch,” caused when your skin is depleted of moisture. Fortunately, there are simple and inexpensive remedies for this problem.
While conventional advice typically includes using petrolatum-based moisturizers, I recommend avoiding creams with petrolatum or mineral oils due to their carcinogenic potential. Mineral oil is also comedogenic, meaning it blocks your pores and your skin’s natural respiration process, which can lead to blackheads and pimples.
It’s important to remember that your skin is the largest organ of your body, and nearly everything you put on it is readily absorbed. Therefore, avoiding slathering anything on your skin that you wouldn’t consider eating is rather sage advice.
I firmly believe you need to approach topical skin care as you approach your diet, and only feed your skin the best ingredients from nature, forgoing toxic chemicals at all costs.
Previous research has shown that women absorb an estimated five pounds of chemicals a year just from the makeup they use! Two effective remedies against dry, itchy winter skin that I will address here are:
Getting sufficient amounts of animal-based omega-3 fats in your diet, and
Using coconut oil to moisturize your skin
In addition to that, I’ll also point out some other dietary measures that can make a big difference—and of course we can’t forget about drinking water to stay hydrated.
