(HealthDay News) -- Everyone is susceptible to dry skin during winter. As we age, our skin becomes thinner and drier, but harsh winters can irritate anyone's skin, the American Academy of Dermatology says.
- Use an oil-based moisturizer. Oil creates a protective layer on the skin.
- Wear sunscreen. The winter sun and snow glare can dry out your skin.
- Hook up a humidifier. More moisture in the air will rehydrate your body.
- Take warm, not hot baths. Hot baths break down important barriers in the skin that keep it hydrated.
