Hot Showers Harmful to Skin during Winter

Dr. Rajani Katta, professor of dermatology at Baylor, recommends showering with lukewarm water for no more than 10 to 15 minutes during wintery months.

“Very dry skin, if not reversed, can progress to skin inflammation and eczema, which calls for a different course of treatment,” she added.

Signs of skin inflammation are: redness, itching, scaling, and cracking.
