Dry Skin

Winter in Minnesota brings us very dry skin.  A few things that will help is stay hydrated.  Drink between 9 to 13 cups of water per day.  If you do not have a humidifier on your heating system plug a small portable one on in your bedroom.  Although we all love hot shower in the winter hot water is also very drying to your skin.  Use a body lotion such as our Signature Hand & Body Lotion to hydrate your skin immediately after bathing.

For facial care  along with using a serum and moisturizer cut down on your sugar intake. Sugar wreaks havoc on our body as well as our skin as it binds to proteins which may cause advanced aging of our skin.
