There are many things that plot to destroy our skin: UV rays, free radicals, pollution, our bosses (lol), etc. And there’s another big one coming—actually it’s already here but will just get more intense as the new season develops: DRYNESS. I can’t even begin to tell you how much the dryness that comes with NYC winter affects me. And what’s worse is the combination of being out in the ice cold and then coming back inside to artificial heat. It’s like you look up “Sahara Dessert” and there’s a graph of my skin pictured next to it. And don’t even get me started on hair. Not only is the temperature change pretty harsh for our hair, but all the things we need to do to keep the rest of us warm can have a negative effect on our already on the dry-side tresses, too. Think about it. Your hair could be rubbing up against the wool collar of your coat causing friction and added dryness. That super cute hat you bought to look stylish while braving the elements can be snatching your edges and causing other breakage. It’s like if it weren’t for the holiday season, winter would just be an all-around mean old bully.
