winterskinDuring the winter skin can dry out and become cracked because of a lack of moisture in the air, and also because of the extreme cold. It’s important to keep your skin healthy to avoid itching, soreness, and even bleeding. For chapped lips, the natural choice is lip balm, but be sure you choose one made from all-natural ingredients. For dry, cracked skin in the palms and on the hands, a skin moisturizer like shea butter lotion works best. If your cheeks or face becomes chapped you can use sunscreen as a moisturizer. It’s also good to avoid using the heat too much in the car and at home as this will dry out your skin even faster.

If you put on moisturizer and lip balm regularly, you’ll find that you won’t need to do it throughout the winter, and that most of the negative skin conditions won’t manifest at all.
