Dry and cracked skin? 20 SPA treatments to remineralise it

Cold, wind and temperature changes typical of winter act directly on the skin, the part of our body most exposed to external agents for obvious reasons. As a consequence of the cold temperatures the blood vessels narrow, so as not to disperse the heat.
