Foggy windows, frozen landscapes and delicious hot chocolate (with whipped cream). A real cold winter, do you also suffer from dry hands or dry skin in general at this time of year? Don't worry... this time of year is known for it. Does your skin feel dull, is it tight, flaky or do you have chapped lips? Then chances are that your skin is dry. This is often the result of low humidity and reduced sebum production. It can also be related to certain products you use, as flaky skin makes us exfoliate or use degreasing cleansers, which is exactly what you should not do in the winter months. Fortunately, Salontotal has fine products in its range that will help you get rid of this quickly. Read on for tips and great products for dry skin.

For example, the La Roche-Posay xerand hand cream is a restorative hand cream for extremely dry hands. Do you suffer from dry spots, cracks and cuts? Then this fine hand cream is definitely for you.
There are different kinds of body lotions available. Biotherm life plankton body milk, for example, is very nice for fragile and sensitive skin. It helps to restore the quality of the skin by hydrating and revitalising it. After use, you will no longer suffer from dryness, irritation, roughness and loss of elasticity.
