Doctors say use Super Glue for cracked winter skin

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Dry, itchy skin without any relief. Winter weather has some devastating effects on our hair and skin.

When the humidity is low, our bodies lose a lot of moisture.

But there are simple things you can do that can help.

For hair, dermatologists say you could try shampooing every other day.

They also recommend moisturizers and lotions, but say drinking water is the key.

"Moisturizers don't actually draw water from the environment into your skin. They trap water in your skin that comes from the inner more viable skin layers, and that water comes from drinking water," dermatologist Christine Brown said.

They also say an old home remedy, super glue, can help seal small cuts and dry cuticles.
