Being a lifetime Alaskan I am all so familiar with harsh winters and dry skin. Its cold and dry outside, and warm and dry inside, there is just no avoiding the dry skin experience in the winter months.
What to do about it….
It is certainly a good time to invest supplements like flax seed and fish oil that are high in omega 3, keeping oils in the skin supple.
Avoid soap! Soap dry’s out your skin, use cleansers that have plant extracts like chamomile and lavender which naturally replenish the skin.
No more long hot baths and hot showers ! It strips your body of all its natural oils
Last but certainly not least, Drink lots and lots of water
