At this time of year clients come in with dry skin. Many of us are running the heater more often in our homes and in our cars. This can contribute to the dryness. But more importantly, We see clients coming in dehydrated in general from lifestyle changes that occur during the holiday season. Drinking more alcohol, eating sweets, taking cold medicines all contribute to dehydration of the body. This manifests as dry skin, sore muscles, and headaches. Remember to increase your non alcohol fluid intake during the winter months for healthy skin and optimal organ function.
