What Causes Dry Skin
Dry skin tends to worsen in the cold weather. In fact, it is often reported as a “winter itch”. Environmental factors, such as low humidity, are often to blame. Bathing habits can affect the water content of the superficial layers of the skin and can also contribute to dry skin.
Dry Skin Treatment Options
