Dry skin in winter is very common, especially due to harsh winds, cool air and indoor heating. Dry winter skin requires even more care and attention if you want to avoid itchy skin, roughness and redness of the skin. Don't let your skin suffer from patches, rough spots and irritations. Dry, itchy skin treatment is easy and fun, so pamper yourself with these easy steps to boost your winter skin care routine:

Use Body Butter- it has no calories but it is just an indulging! Body butter is a rich body moisturizer based on Shea butter and Dead Sea minerals. Infused with natural oils, Jericho Body Butter is amazing for dry skin, cracked elbows, knees and heals. Choose from 4 different scents including vanilla, kiwi, mango and lemon. Body Butter is recommended for dry winter skin over  lotion, since it is heavier and helps the skin to retain moisture longer.

Take a Salty Bath- a warm bath on a cold night is a wonderful romantic way to warm up, but it is also a superb way to soften your skin and keep it moisturized. Adding Dead Sea Bath Salts to the water will soften your skin and recharge it with lots of important minerals, to restore your skin's glow. Add a little oatmeal to the water to get rid of any red patches caused by the dry winter air.

Hand Cream is Essential- our hands are constantly exposed to the changing weather conditions. In addition, frequent hand washing or hand sanitizers can easily dry out your hands even more. Therefore, during winter time it is essential to have a rich luscious hand cream around at all times. Moisturize your hands whenever possible to avoid flaky looking skin with Jericho Hand Cream.

 Drink Up- cold weather is usually very drying.  We spend a lot of time in heated rooms, which can increase skin dryness and irritation. To keep healthy looking skin, it is crucial to drink as much water as possible- at least 64 oz of water a day, in addition to your daily coffee/tea/juices.

Add Moisture to Your Face- most of us use a daily moisturizer once a day. Some also use a night cream for a total of two applications a day, however to treat dry winter skin you can apply more moisturizer if needed. Oily skin types may only call for adding a night cream. Normal to dry skin types may need an extra boost of moisture in the middle of the day. If you have dry skin with visible fine lines and wrinkles, use a deep nourishing moisturizing mask, to nourish your skin and protect it as much as possible for the dry weather.
