We all know how important it is to adjust our skin care regimen to the climate where we live and to the weather changes. Caring for skin during winter takes a little extra time and effort because of the conditions and changes that are extreme for skin. Skin gets exposed to windy, cold, and dry weather outside and humidity-depleting heaters indoors, which can further leave the skin dehydrated, itchy, red, and irritated. Even the most balanced, well cared for skin can be thrown off by winter air.
