    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 though out their school day.
    • 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
