In Indiana, we are no strangers to the perils of the colder months. Having battled the wind and cranked up the heat, come the end of winter, our skin is zapped of its natural oil barrier, leaving our skin struggling to retain moisture.
Parched, the skin tends to lose its healthy luster. And, while the appearance of chapped skin is not aesthetically pleasing, for many, the resulting tight and even itchy skin proves far more uncomfortable.
