Limit use of heaters and air conditioners

Excessive use of heaters as well as air conditioners can cause your skin to dry out over time. Note that exposure to direct heat such as from a heater or fire may cause skin to dry out much quicker so, if you are using these methods to keep warm, do not sit too close to them. In addition, it is far easier to experience severe burns if there is an accident when you are sitting very close to hot sources of heat so take caution!
