Winter’s Impact on the Skin

What does winter do to our skin? First, the cold atmosphere and dry air can make the skin dry or cracked. Second, if you spend more time indoors and just rely on central heating, then it would make the skin rough and chapped. Yes, we have no escape. So what are we to do? Here’s an infographic presented by Wishing U Well. It explains how winter affects our skin and how to handle it.


  1. Lips – The cold temp can make the lips cracked. Apply a cream like petroleum jelly.
  2. Hands and Feet – When become rough, moisten them immediately. Use soap with emollients.
  3. Eyes — Prevent dry eyes by applying lubricants or hot compresses.
  4. Skin — The winter dry air can crack the skin. Wear a moisturizer with SP15.
