Times Change

Ch, ch, ch, ch changes

Just as the song says changes, we are in a transition time at the moment. Winter is coming and here in Southern California the weather can’t seem to make up its mind. 85 during the day and 45 at night, makes for some interesting skin conditions. Winter in general is a tough time for our poor skin, most regions get hit with blistering cold and snow, and other parts still get the heat. Most of us start to feel the dryness and per web md this is why we are experiencing that dryness. Warmer air holds more moisture than cooler air. In the winter, the cold air that seeps into your home from the outside has a lower humidity -- meaning that it carries very little moisture. You crank up the heat inside your house, which adds warmth but doesn't increase the amount of moisture in the air.

So remember that when you are freezing in the morning that extra hot shower it can also dry the heck out of your skin. Just like most things in life we have to adapt as the world changes.
