Simple Steps to Avoid 'Winter Itch'

Make sure you use moisturizers regularly, particularly after bathing. Look for products, such as Uremol, which contain urea, a moisturizing factor and keratolytic agent that removes dead, dry skin to reveal softer skin.

Here are some helpful tips you can follow this season to avoid the dry or itchy skin:

  • Avoid overheating rooms.
  • Use humidifiers to keep heated indoor air moist. Humidified air is easier to breathe, too.
  • In terms of washing, baths dry out the skin more than showers, and hot or cold water is more drying than warm.
  • One or two thorough baths or showers a week can be supplemented by daily sponge baths under the arms.
  • Use a mild soap or wear rubber gloves if you need to handle strong detergents or other chemicals.
  • Avoid excessive friction on the skin, such as scrubbing with harsh washcloths or wearing woolen clothing.
  • Stay away from irritants or substances which can trigger allergic reactions.
  • Bundle up when you go outside. Cover exposed skin in windy or cold weather.

Be good to your skin. Follow these steps and the advice from your physician or pharmacist. Using a moisturizer like Uremol will effectively treat dryness and even difficult areas such as heels and elbows, softening the skin and providing protection.
