Protect your skin this season

Cold weather is just as challenging to your skin as warm weather seasons. This time of the year, you may notice dryness and flaking, and in some cases, cracking of the skin in exposed areas such as around your mouth and fingers. Exposure to extreme cold temperatures also places you at risk of developing skin damage due to frostnip or frostbite.
