Ski in the hills of Gatineau or ski on the Rideau Ski Canal in a sunny area Winter’s day, the bright blue sky, looks like a beautiful dreamy day.
While we enjoy spending time outdoors, winters are not very kind to our skin, especially if it is sensitive. Cold temperatures, harsh winds, and indoor heating exacerbate sensitivity by stripping away moisture and depleting the skin’s natural defences. The result is often cracked skin that is red, dry, cracked, and irritated.
