Dry Skin Solution
Is your skin suffering this winter? Dry skin, or xeroderma, is often worse in the winter when the climate is colder and drier. Normally, the skin secretes its own oil, sebum. When this oil is stripped away, the skin becomes dry and it loses it’s ability to protect the body from the outside world. How do you know if you have dry skin? Common symptoms of dry skin include:
- After bathing or showering, moisturize with an unscented, hypoallergenic moisturizing cream
- Add a tablespoonful of oil (mineral, almond, olive) to your bath AFTER soaking for 5 minutes
- Protect your skin from the elements by moisturizing before heading outside.
