The winter season brings challenges to our skin with the heaters cranking and low moisture in the air. This leaves our skin dry and itchy. Without its proper moisture barrier, the skin can become irritated, inflamed, and even fissured (aka cracked). Many consequences stem from this.
Good hygiene and dryness don’t have to go hand in hand! While necessary, frequent hand washing or the use of hand sanitizers can lead to, or worsen, dry skin problems.

We’re nearly a third of the way through winter and many people are experiencing dry, itchy skin. That’s why the physicians at Affiliated Dermatology are sharing effective ways to help your skin feel and look better.
