The windy, frigid winter weather can be unbearable at times, especially if you leave your skin exposed. It’s important to protect your skin in both hot and cold weather, but particularly in winter, the cold winds can quickly take away your skin’s natural moisture. That dehydration leaves your skin dry and cracked, which in some cases can lead to infection. Check out these tips on skin care for seniors.
To combat the cold, make sure you’re doing the following this winter.
