Anyone dealing with dry and itchy skin with the cooler weather that many are experiencing around the country?  I know I am!  I can always tell that the weather is really changing when my skin starts driving me crazy!

What are you experiencing?  Any products you've found to help keep your skin from being so itchy and miserable?

Other than keeping properly hydrated, which I know its hard to drink lots of water during the winter, coconut oil is my new go to for dry skin for any area other than on my face.

Dry,itchy skin is common problem that we all face in winter. Dry skin can be treated with moisturizers. There are many natural moisturizers in home like glycerin, honey, milk etc. We can directly use them to treat the dry skin. Make a solution of 1 tbsp of glycerin, 1 tbsp of lemon juice and 1 tbsp of rose water. Mix all the ingredients well. Apply this solution before going to sleep. Glycerin is the natural humectant keeps the moisture in the skin. You can also add 2 tbsp of olive oil to the bathing water to prevent the winter dry skin.
