Skin dryness can become a problem during the cold weather months.

As the weather grows colder,moisturize frequently, at least once daily. Use bland unscented moisturizers. Creams will last longer on the skin than lotions.

Use a cool mist vaporizer or humidifier to add moisture to the air. Make sure to clean the unit weekly, per manufacturer’s instructions.

Keep the skin warm, especially the head and extremities, by wearing a hat with either gloves or mittens. This will help prevent the skin from becoming dehydrated.
