Winter skin care is as important as skin care during any other season. In fact, skin becomes more dry and subject to cracking during colder months. This includes your lips, face, legs, arms, and just about everywhere else. Skin exposed to the elements, like your lips, are especially vulnerable. Lip balm and lotion or body butter can be very beneficial during the Winter months. They can even be used as gifts during the holidays.

During Winter months, skin can become dehydrated easily and your skin can actually age faster because of it. Fine lines can form in these months, and age spots can pop up. Those suffering with eczema or psoriasis will have more flare-ups than ever, which can make Winter especially difficult for their skin. This and more is why it is so important to keep skin hydrated and protected from the cold weather.
