You can keep scratching your way through winter, or you can stop flaky skin in its tracks. Here's how.

Step 1: Switch to baths
Switch to baths; showers strip more of your skin's natural oils. Don't make them too hot or too long; both can dry out skin.

Step 2: Use bath oil and mild soap
Pour bath oil into your tub, and wash with a mild, non-deodorant, fragrance-free soap.

You can also use a bath treatment that contains oatmeal.

Step 3: Moisturize
Moisturize as soon as you step out of the bath, after gently patting your body with a towel. Reapply during the day – especially before going into the blustery outdoors – and before you go to bed at night.

Choose moisturizer that contains glycerin, hyaluronic acid, or feverfew.

Step 4: Wear soft clothes
Avoid clothing and bedding made from wool, synthetic materials, and wool blends. Layer clothes to avoid overheating and sweating, which make dry skin worse.

Step 5: Turn down the thermostat
Reduce the drying effects of central heating by lowering the thermostat to between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit. Put on a sweater if that's too chilly for you.

Step 6: Humidify
Add moisture to indoor air with a humidifier. Or make a homemade one by putting a heatproof bowl filled with on top of a radiator or near a heating vent.

Step 7: See a doctor
See a doctor if you itch all over your body, it's so bad that you can't sleep, or your skin is broken from scratching so much; these are all signs that you may have a more serious medical condition.

Did You Know?
Skin is 30 percent less supple in winter thanks to cold air and the drying effects of indoor heating.
