This week temperatures dipped below freezing for the first time this season. I had to put in my extra insert into my North Face jacket to keep warm. The cold doesn’t really bother me as I’m only in the elements for about five minutes from the bus stop to the studio. What bothers me about winter the most is the dry skin. For whatever reason, I feel like I’m especially susceptible to dry skin in the winter.
I can tell which parts of my body are the driest when I shower. As soon as the hot water hits my body, the pain is a signal where I need to apply moisturizer afterwards. I wish there was some way to easily lather my entire body in a thin layer of moisturizer. Perhaps they will invent a machine that does that some day. In the meantime, I’ll have to settle for awkwardly trying to apply lotion on my back where I can’t reach.
