The changing weather and the chilly breeze signal sweater weather, binge- drinking hot chocolate and tucking in to cozy nights. With all the good things about winter, unfortunately, as the weather turns cold dry skin becomes extremely common.
Dry skin is caused by a weakened skin barrier or using products that dry out the skin. Look out for the symptoms which include itching, redness, flakiness and sometimes cracked skin. People also suffer from bleeding and chapped lips which suddenly become a norm as soon as the cool breeze starts.
While it is a good idea to consult a dermatologist for severe skin-related problems, dry skin during winters don’t necessarily need a visit to the doctors. Instead, you can consider using natural ingredients and DIY’s to your skin-care routine at home to help your skin during the cold winter months. Using oils and natural ingredients also guarantee that they don’t contain all the extra chemicals that manufactured skin creams have in them - a total win-win situation for sure.
