Dealing with dry skin in cold weather

If you are experiencing dry skin this winter, you’re not alone. What can you do to help treat this issue?

Dr. Amy Kassouf, a dermatologist for Cleveland Clinic, says avoid watery moisturizers, which will dry too fast and won’t offer much soothing relief.

Instead, stick with ones on the richer side that create a thicker barrier on the skin.

In some cases, you can use a basic food grade oil.

You also don’t need to buy an expensive name brand moisturizer either. Drugstore products are just as effective. Olive oil and coconut oil can also work, said Kassouf.
