Don’t let winter weather damage your skin. Cold weather will suck the moisture right out of your skin. The frigid temperatures and winter winds are two of the most common causes of flaky skin. Make sure you stay moisturized this winter. Using a good moisturizer after you shower will lock in the moisture. Make sure you don’t expose yourself to low temperatures without proper winter wear. Invest in a good pair of gloves and a warm jacket. This will help keep your arms and hands from drying out. When your hands dry out they become flaky. They can also crack and bleed, which can cause discomfort. Making sure you stay bundled up will really make a difference. Your skin will be protected from the elements and won’t become flaky or scaly. You should also wear chapstick to protect your lips from the cold. Dry, cracked lips can be unsightly and painful. The cold weather can cause cold sores, canker sores and chapping. So, stay bundled up and protect your face, arms and lips this winter.
