Winter is still here

How to tell if your skin is dry:
flaky skin
brittle nails
cracking lips
Excema
Kinda sounds like side effects of drugs advertised on TV! I only know they're not since I'm not taking any of them...

Causes:
dry winter air
heaters recirculating said dry air

Solutions:
drink lots of water
lotion
boil water or use a humidifier
become a Snowbird and move temporarily to Florida

It's been cold and dry and almost without snow for all of January. It's getting old! Someday it will be June!

It's soo dry here. It only gets "cold" at night, but it is warm during the days. However it looks like I am wearing a lip stain because my lips are soo chapped! Ouch :( I also freaking hate excema. Hate it! But I get it all the time. And another problem, I don't like wearing lotion, I feel greasy, dirty and gross, but lotion smells good...the dilema. *sigh* Even I want June!!!
