Dry skin is a common problem every winter. Whether it’s rough hands, a flakey face or scaly legs, it’s often hard to avoid when the temperature drops and the wind picks up. And no matter how much shea butter you lather on every day, it’s often not enough to treat severely dry skin. So, let’s get to the root of it! Here are six ways to treat dry winter skin without using a drop of lotion!

1. Eat watery foods.

Just because it’s winter and it’s cold doesn’t mean you should forget about raw foods and indulge in stuff that’s cooked and warm. Getting vitamins from fruit and greens is still important!

When you eat cooked food, your body uses up its water reserves to help digest the food. On the other hand, fresh fruits are so easily digested because they come with their own water content and don’t need to rely on your body’s to be digested. The body can just pick out the nutrients it needs and turn the rest into waste without digging into its own store.

The more water you can get from your food, the more water your body will have to naturally hydrate your skin!


2. Wake up to water.

The first thing you should do every morning is drink a big glass of water. Not only will water on an empty stomach hydrate you right away, it’ll also wake up your digestive system after a night of “fasting.”

Remember to continue drinking water throughout the day as well. If you’re feeling chilly, try herbal tea without caffeine to keep your body warm and moist.
