There are lots of reasons why people dislike winter, and the impact it has on the skin is definitely one of them. The cold air and winter weather can be hard on the skin. It makes it dry and itchy, and sometimes it seems as if no matter what you do, you can’t do anything about it. Dealing with flaking, cracking and seasonal eczema is not pleasant.
While many people blame dry skin solely on the cold, the heat in the home is also a culprit. No matter what type of heating system you have, as soon as you turn it on, it dries out your home and your skin. To minimize the impact of heating your home, consider turning down the heat a few degrees and using a humidifier.
Try out these skin care tips and see if they help you reduce dryness this winter. It may take a little trial and error, but over time you will be on your way to effectively protecting your skin from the cold.
