It was Groundhog Day on Saturday, February 2, and weather-prognosticating resident rodent Punxsutawney Phil apparently did not see his shadow, which means spring should come six weeks early this year.
But spring can’t come early enough for many residents of North America that experienced historic low temperatures last week, courtesy of the Polar Vortex. According to AccuWeather.com, last Tuesday in Thief River Falls, Minnesota, a temperature of -77F (degrees below zero) was recorded. Brrrrrrrrrr–that’s the kind of weather that will dry your skin right out, if it doesn’t freeze your eyeballs first.
Low humidity and being indoors with the heat turned up can irritate skin, leaving you itchy, red, and inflamed–but you unless you’re hibernating like our friend Phil, don’t wait months to moisturize and soothe your skin. These CBD-infused skincare lines offer anti-inflammatory benefits, as well as spa-like luxury, exotic ingredients, and botanical blends that will feel like an infusion of spring:
