There are ways to avoid the chapped, dry skin so many of us associate with winter. For one thing, using a great lotion immediately following a bath or shower provides a barrier against the dry, cold air that can protect skin for the whole day. Using chap stick, hand lotion, and pouring bath oil into the water when you bathe are also beneficial.

Be sure to see a doctor if you feel your dry skin may be something more, such as exczema or psoriasis.

As with any skin product, sensitivity or allergy is possible, so be certain to find as natural product as you can and always test a bit on your skin prior to using a great deal, to ensure you are not going to create an adverse reaction. Your ability to heal your skin will depend largely on getting to know what does ad doesn't work for you and being consistent in your treatment once you have figured out the most beneficial products to use.
