Winter Itchy Skin and Stuffiness
It gets cold here in Northeastern Ohio. While the snow is beautiful, the chilly weather causes definite changes in my skin. Cool temperatures, dry heat and lower humidity drain moisture causing dry, flaky and itchy skin. For those with normally dry or sensitive skin, it will often worsen during the winter months.
Keeping skin well hydrated and replacing natural oils with our Body Moisturizers can help. The best time to moisturize is after showering or bathing, while skin is still damp, to help lock in moisture. Our natural Winter Survival soap has become a seasonal favorite. The cooling, clearing, revitalizing scent of this moisturizing bar helps soothe dry, itchy skin and energize your spirit on cold winter mornings!
Winter also means colds and congestion. The decrease in humidity dries out mucous membranes which normally act as a protective barrier against germs. Cold temperatures drive people indoors where the spread of cold and flu viruses is ideal. An herbal bath, facial steam or soothing aromatic salve can help relieve stuffiness and congestion.
