#1. Moisturize your skin morning and night with an organic formula
The first thing to focus on when combating dry, itchy skin is moisturization. It's important to regularly use a rich, creamy lotion to soothe irritated skin while healing and nourishing dryness.
Places like your feet, knees, elbows, and hands are particularly susceptible to the harsh winter air, low humidity levels, and cold weather. The best way to save your complexion is by regularly indulging in a restorative and hydrating hand cream.

#2. Use a humidifier to reintroduce hydration into the air
That dreaded winter itch comes from the air around you. As temperatures drop and the cold air sweeps in, any moisture lingering in the air is erased. Your skin then becomes dehydrated and will start to long for some much-needed humidity!
An air humidifier is a simple yet amazingly effective way to reintroduce hydration into the air. It helps to keep the outer layer of your skin healthy, fresh, and soft.
#3. Use a gentle body wash to keep your skin clean
In the winter months, you can likely get away with not slathering your entire body head-to-toe in soap each and every day. Hot water mixed with the dry air can strip your skin's natural oils, leaving it chapped and uneven.
A body wash with a gentle, soothing formula is a must when showering during the winter. JUARA's award-winning Candlenut Hydrating Shower Gel is a silky-smooth gel cleanser that pairs well with any and all skin types.
Full of nourishing botanicals and creamy coconut, this sulfate-free gel cleanser helps to whisk away bacteria and dead skin cells. And when your skin is free of impurities, it's easier to prevent winter itch and encourage a healthy glow!
To prevent any potential skin irritation, be sure to protect your skin with a creamy body lotion
Just don't forget to apply moisturizer immediately after your steamy, hot shower time. A rich, creamy body creme with natural ingredients like jojoba oil, shea butter, or cocoa butter can help to soothe sensitive skin and that winter itch.
#4. Avoid any harsh ingredients in your skincare products
One of the best ways to prevent winter itch and soothe already irritated skin is by avoiding any harsh chemicals. It's a good idea to only use skincare products that are made with natural, organic elements.
Harsh ingredients serve to exacerbate chronic skin conditions and can leech the nutrients from your winter skin. But when you serve your skin with plant-based ingredients that come straight from Mother Earth, you're giving it everything it needs to thrive in the winter.
If you're struggling with itchy, dry skin in the winter, it might seem like there's no end in sight.
Luckily, sometimes all it takes is a new skincare routine and a newfound focus on your wellness, and you'll be back to having a youthful, healthy, glowing complexion!
