Avoiding dry winter skin

Waterloo (KWWL) - It's that time of year, not only for holiday shopping and family gatherings, It's also when you start to notice dry, itchy skin.

As the humidity drops, the moisture in our skin goes with it. Here are some tips from Dermatology Associates in Waterloo:

Avoid washing with hot water.

Apply moisturizer right after a shower

Don't forget sunscreen/lip balm

Buy a humidifier

Drink a lot of water

If your winter skin persists as a problem, it might be a good idea to see your doctor for help.
