Have you noticed that the recent subzero wind chills have left you with dry and cracked skin? Colder temperatures each winter bring one big problem: dry, cracked skin. Those itchy, dry patches are indications that the outer layer of skin, made up of dead skin cells, natural oils and lipids (fats), needs help.
Cold weather and low humidity, caused by indoor heating, can strip away the skin’s natural protective layer and results in our skin’s inability to stay moisturized. In extreme cases, if not treated, some of these dry areas can become painful cracked and bleeding skin, particularly around the feet and ankles. A trip to the store will provide you with and endless options of products that claim to alleviate dry skin. Let us make it easy for you to decide which product is best for your condition.
