Winter and Dry Skin Go Together

The people highest at risk for dry skin with or without eczema are those living in developed areas and colder climates. It is a problem seen in the students in our school during the winter months. I hope you find some of the tips below helpful so that your son or daughter can remain comfortable throughout their school day.

·         Bathe less frequently

·         Use a gentle fragrance-free soap, for example Dove Soap

·         Take quick warm showers instead of long hot baths or showers

·         After bathing, pat dry and immediately apply lotion or moisturizer to skin

·         Wear gloves or mittens and a scarf outside to protect exposed skin

·         Use a humidifier in the bedroom

·         Use lip balm throughout the day
