The cool days are officially starting, and here at Syracuse that means the cold days are just around the corner. I can just feel the winter depression setting in, and my skin feels the same way. My hands are already dry and eczema is surfacing. Yeah, I think that definitely makes someone wanna hold my hand…if that someone also happens to have winter lizardy skin.
As if losing your summer bronze glow isn’t bad enough, the cold wind and weather does some serious damage to your skin. And your precious face and dainty hands get the worst of it, as they most often feel the harshness of the cold air. So how can you protect your skin without staying in your room all day? (No, that isn’t an option; professors don’t care about your skin that much.)
Below are some suggestions to get your skin back to the baby’s-bottom-soft feel of summer. No more cracking, flaking or drying out this winter, women.
Hands: If your skin is only mildly dry or you just want to prevent it from happening, a thick cream will do the trick. Try L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Hand Cream or Bliss’ High Intensity Hand Cream. And keep that stuff with you wherever you go; skin dries out quickly in the winter-time and you want to be prepared.
