With colder temperature comes dry and uncomfortable itchy skin. You can avoid overall itchy skin by staying hydrated. Obvious ways to cure the common dry skin is to moisturize regularly and take shorter baths with warm water instead of hot water. Prevent dry patches from forming on your skin by making the most of your daily diet. Your food and water intake not only boost your energy and immune system but also keeps your skin hydrated and looking healthy. Maintain good hydration levels by drinking 4-8 cups of liquid, preferably water, daily.
