My skin is worse in the winter-is yours?

So I have noticed over my adult life that the winter is the worst for my skin. Itchy sweaters, dry skin, cold air, staying indoors in dusty buildings... The list of triggers goes on. I do my best to prevent things the best I can, but it is never without some casualties. Luckily its not so embarrassing to keep my eczema covered up in the winter, so I manage. Does anyone else feel that winter is worse than summer?
Thanks, I'm just curious to know!
Hello @EcZena ,
How are you feeling today? :)
Thank you for opening this discussion. Winter season has been linked with periods of feeling "low" but it can also have an effect on the quality of the skin. The cold can leave the skin feeling dry and itchy, which is why nourishing the skin with the right cream is important during winter.
I will tag a few members who could share their experiences-

@Rahul.R Yes my skin usually is worse in winter as the fingers have a tendency to crack. I wear cotton gloves of a night after smearing my hands in cream (a great look!) And I can also recommend soaking hands/feet in dead sea salt as I find this quite soothing for flare ups.
Hope this helps.

@Rahul.R I am very itchy person. Also I suffer from pemphigoid - which is sometimes on my face . The itchiness is very uncomfortable and unrelenting.
