Fighting Dry Skin


Dry skin is a common thing women share during the winter months. Since there's less humidity is the air, skin gets uncomfortable and itchy.I think most women use extra moisturizer to help fight the dry itchy skin, but you should also try turning down the heat, put on a comfy sweatshirt instead, and use a humidifier to help create more moisture in the air. Did you know that certain foods can also help improve dry skin?
Try incorporating some or all of these types of food into your winter diet to help fight the dry skin itchies!

1. Foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids: salmon, flaxseed, tuna, avocado, nuts
2. Foods that contain zinc: oysters, crab, beef, and beans. Zinc helps heal wounds.
3. Foods rich in sulfur: garlic, onions, and eggs. They help to keep your skin smooth.
4. Water. Drink plenty of it during the day!
5. Avoid caffeine and alcohol. These diuretics will suck your skin dry.
