What causes dry skin?
In the wintry months that cover the first part of the year the words, “Baby, it’s cold outside” sadly sing a little louder than, “Your welcome has been so nice and warm.”
Unfortunately, the cold weather’s unforgiving companion is dryness and it’s easy to say the effects of this chilling partnership on our skin are anything but “nice and warm.”
Dry skin is an inevitable characteristic of the cold, winter months. But that doesn’t mean that you have to suffer! Here are some tips on what causes dry skin and what symptoms to look out for that may be telling you your skin’s a little parched.
A significant drop in the temperature causes the moisture in the air to take a plunge as well. When there’s less water in the air, there’s less water for your skin to absorb, causing your skin to become a little drier and thirstier than usual.
