A note from Nurse Joy:
Dry hands, cracked lips and chapped faces? Winter must be here!
Here are some easy, helpful reminders on how to help keep our skin healthy during the long winter months ahead of us.
- Sunscreen - not just for warm summer months. Sunscreen is needed through the winter to protect you from the UV rays from the sun, especially rays reflecting off snow.
- Humidifiers: Using a humidifier can help keep moisture in your skin and help prevent nosebleeds which are especially common in kids through the winter months.
- Moisturizer: Moisturizing creams are best for mild dryness. Oils are best for moderate dryness and ointment for severe dryness. Skin protectants contain active ingredients (medicines) so read the Drug Facts label carefully to be sure you choose the right product and use it appropriately.
- Short Showers, Short Baths: Warm showers are good for the soul but terrible for winter skin. Be sure to limit kids' time in the tubs as well. Help prevent winter itch and flakiness post bath by patting kids dry and moisturizing immediately after baths.
- Stay Hydrated: Dehydration can cause skin to sag. Drink plenty of water every day to keep your skin hydrated.
- Don't Forget Your Lips: Protect lips from the UV rays of the sun with lip balm that includes SPF 30.
Remember, students go out for recess unless it is below zero, so their skin might need some extra attention!
