Winter is upon us, and Mother Nature is not especially kind this time of year. With cold temperatures, harsh wind chills and a constant stream of snowfall, it is important to make sure you are protected from the elements. Seniors especially need to practice proper skin care during this season. As we age, our skin become thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as smooth as it used to. Scratches, cuts, and bruises take longer to heal, wrinkles and age spots appear, and skin becomes dry and itchy. In the winter, dryness and itching are a major nuisance that can lead to more serious issues if not addressed. Practicing proper skin care is quick, simple, and essential during these winter months.
