With winter here, we all start taking hotter showers.  Nothing could be worse for your skin. Hot water can strip a lot of protective elements off of your skin-- leading to dry itchy skin.  When this becomes widespread- we call it "Winter's Itch."  Best advice-- shower in lukewarm water, and use a moisturizing body wash in the shower. My favorite-- Eucerin Calming Body Wash Daily Shower Oil-- the only one in a gold bottle. Next Blog: moisturizing after the shower.
