Dry skin can be a real bummer in the Winter, especially when it gets all itchy and flaky. The good news is that you don't have to live with it.
Here are a few tips for people with dry skin:
- Turn down the thermostat: Hot air is drier than cool air.
- Use a humidifier: It can help put moisture back in the air.
- Take warm, not hot, baths or showers: Hot water whisks away the fatty substances in the skin that help it retain water.
- Stay protected: Windy outdoor air is very drying, so bundle up.
