I had ice on my roof last night. That might not seem like a big deal but I live in Southern California and this is cold for us! The skin is really affected by this cold weather and the biggest side effect is dry and cracked skin. One thing I love to use for healing dry skin among other skin problems such as burns, psoriasis and even frostbite is Aloe Vera. You can buy a plant like the one I have in my back yard (one of the few plants I manage to keep alive) or buy a pure over the counter topical Aloe Vera product. I like the Epicuren Aloe Vera Calming Gel by Epicuren– it is only $8.00. This can be really used as a moisturizer for a real sensitive skin and also as a treatment serum under a moisturizer for a skin suffering from the weather!
