"Really Dry Air" Province of Alberta Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Shade420

Especially in the winter the air in Alberta gets extremly dry. Almost all Albertans seem to use moisteriser. Yes even the men. If a few days you will notice the skin on your face and hands getting tight. In a week they will start to crack. I have heard this from every person who has traveled here. Unless you come from a dry climate or have extremlly oily skin save yourself some pain and just pick up a bottle of moisteriser. You will need it!! Also good to have some sort of lip chap. The wind especially when its cold here can really crack your lips.
