When the weather gets cold, our skin tends to dry out ~ whether from the bitter outdoors, the arid indoor heat, or both. Harsh soaps, chemical-laden lotions, dehydration, and internal dryness can all exacerbate the problem, leading to rawness, chapping & irritation.

Common Causes of Dry Skin

If you're struggling with parched skin, first identify which of the most common causes from the list above could be a factor: harsh soaps, low quality lotions, extreme weather, dehydration or internal dryness. Then try implementing the remedies below to address the root issues.
