During the colder fall, winter, and spring seasons, many people experience dry skin and cracked lips. This happens for several reasons. First, air that’s cold and dry tends to be less humid, causing water to evaporate from the skin faster. Second, indoor heating also dehydrates your skin, which can lead to dry skin, cracked lips, and nosebleeds. Third, many people don’t apply lotion as frequently in the winter months since most of their skin is covered by warm clothing. And lastly, the warm baths and hot showers people tend to take to warm up when they come in from the cold also serve to dry skin out faster.
