Cold weather and decreased humidity in the air brings dry and chapped skin to the face and body. Dry skin results when oil that is naturally present in the skin is lost allowing water to escape. What should you do for your dry and unhealthy looking winter skin?

There are a few things to consider. One, invest in a humidifier for your home or office. Second, moisturize your skin with a lotion that is suited for you skin type. Lotions are made by suspending oil in alcohol or water. There are many different brands to choose from. Try to stay away from ones that contain preservatives, urea, and acids.
