It’s annoying (and a little embarrassing) to sit at work, scratching at your skin like you’ve come down with some type of rare disease. Men’s Fitness feels your pain (or itch, rather), so we did some research and tracked down a few solutions to make your skin feel as good as new. Ahh, relief—finally!
1. Use a Cooling Body Lotion
When your skin is in need of a little moisture, nothing feels quite as thirst-quenching as Gold Bond’s Medicated Body Lotion. It has a weird-but-awesome cooling effect that magically takes away the pain you’ve caused by non-stop scratching. ($4.49, drugstore.com)
3. Deal with Cracked Hands
Cracked hands might be one of the worst things about cold weather, but who wants to use that flowery-smelling something your girlfriend carries in her purse? Gloves In A Bottle is fragrance-free, promotes natural moisture, and won’t slide off the minute you wash. ($14.49, walgreens.com)
4. Don’t Forget Your Scalp
Your scalp needs some loving, too! If you don’t have time for conditioner, moisturize your head with Suave Professional 2-in-1. Now people won’t keep thinking you’re confused all the time. ($5.95, amazon.com)
9. Scale Back on Sugar
Another reason to cut back on the sugar and carbs? You’ll reduce inflammation. Stick to foods high in omega-3 fatty acids, which will soften skin and lock in moisture.
10. Catch Some Zs
Lack of sleep will not only leave bags under your eyes and help cause wrinkles, it can affect the way your skin’s natural moisture barrier works. Winter just might be the perfect time to stop working late and hit the hay at a reasonable hour.
11. Skip Hot Showers
They may be relaxing, but steamy showers strip skin of its natural oils. Get in and get out as quick as you can and opt for lukewarm water instead.
