How to Treat Your Skin in the Winter

Hand with lotion

Exposure to bitter cold is hard enough on your skin during the winter months, and the last thing you need to do is use a harsh soap or lotion on your body to make it feel worse. Soaps and lotions are absorbed by the body and have to be processed, which can sometimes trigger a Crohn’s-type reaction. So, using all-natural products that don’t include extra ingredients or preservatives is one of the best solutions for curing dry, winter skin without making your Crohn’s flare up or your skin break out.

Thoroughly washing your face each night can help prevent skin from feeling dry by rinsing away the dead skin cells and promoting new, healthy cells to grow. However, daily washing exposes your skin to whatever product you use each night and can cause adverse reactions if there are filler ingredients in the soap. There are many natural, healthy and gentle products that can prevent skin from feeling dry or damaged.

Some medical professionals believe Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic Kampuku Soap is the best soap to use during the winter. The probiotic formula includes lactic acid bacteria mixed with natural, organic raw ingredients essential for healthy skin development. Dr. Ohhira’s bar soap is also fragrance-free and preservative free, limiting the chance of negative reactions or outbreaks. So as the beauty bar cleans and moisturizes the face, it also gives sensitive skin a natural boost of exposure to healthy probiotics and naturally fermented raw ingredients.

Additionally, a good moisturizer that doesn’t further irritate the skin is essential for brutal winter months. Dr Ohhira’s Probiotic Magoroku Moisture Cream is considered one of the best face creams for dry skin. The deep moisturizing formula combines probiotics, such as fermented lactic acid, with natural ingredients such as aloe vera and peach leaf extract to soothe damaged skin. This highly-absorbent cream is also fragrance-free and doesn’t have any added colors or chemicals. Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic Magoroku Moisturizing Cream can also be used as a body lotion for wind-burned cheeks or dried out elbows and knees.

Both Dr Ohhira’s Probiotic Kampuku Soap and Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic Magoroku Moisturizing Cream are the recommended beauty products for winter and can make great gifts for the holiday season. The probiotic cream is also safe for use on children since it doesn’t contain any allergens.
