Frigid temperatures, harsh winds, low humidity and central heating all spell one thing -- dry, dry skin and hair. You will need a more moisturizing regime for keeping your skin and hair in good condition. Knowing how skin and hair react in winter and adjusting your beauty regime can help prevent chapped lips, dry skin, and frizzy hair.
- Dry Skin.
Extreme low temperatures and biting winds take a toll on the skin's barrier and natural protective outer layer (the epidermis). Constant exposure to these harsh elements results in dry, aggravated skin.
- Dry Hair.
Frizz and flyaway ends are common hair complaints during winter. Stripped of moisture, the hair becomes dry, dull and static.
