Top Ten Winter Tips for Great Skin
Changing temperatures should mean a change of routine, no matter which part of the world you live in. Knowing a little about how skin functions in the winter and tweaking a few personal habits can make all the difference between a dull winter complexion and a glowing radiance.
For dry skin, start the day with a hot shower but before you get out, switch to cold water for about fifteen seconds. Then turn up the heat a little and down again and repeat this process for about two minutes. Why? This is a simple hydrotherapy technique which revitalises the skin by stimulating the flow of blood through the body. It is both invigorating and highly beneficial, so even though you may not really enjoy the process, just think of all the good it is doing you. Also, a lukewarm bath with oatmeal or baking soda can help relieve skin that has become so dry that it is itchy.

She reveals that although not life-threatening, the disorder is often responsible for severe psychological problems and can impact negatively on patients’ relationships, causing anguish and distress.
