As the seasons change, the harsh elements of Winter can wreak havoc on the skin, resulting in the skin becoming dry, sensitive, itchy, dehydrated, flaky and tight. The entire body, in particular the face, hands and legs, are all exposed to Winter temperatures and with the addition of heavy clothing and itchy fabrics, can only aggravate sensitive skin conditions. Those suffering from eczema or psoriasis can find that these elements exacerbate the situation further.
La Roche-Posay, the brand recommended by dermatologists, has a range of products that are dry skin saviours!
