Winter weather brings more than just cold weather our way.
"In the winter time, the air becomes less humid and so that causes the outermost later of your skin to not hold moisture as well, so it dries out more easily," said Dr. Koleen Zimmerman, a Dermatologist.
Before you say, "I knew that," Dr. Zimmerman says what are you doing to keep from getting cracked, painful skin sores? He says dry skin does not just mean you need to use a moisturizer, but drinking a lot of water, at least eight glasses a day, will help you stay hydrated. Eating healthy, and exercising can also help your skin. He also says if you have extremely dry skin, you may need to see a dermatologist for a prescription because there are steroid creams that can make a big difference in some patients.
