Kiss My Itch Goodbye® Says Farewell to the ‘Polar Vortex’ and ‘Winter Itch’: All-Natural, Organic and Made in USA Relief for Chronic Itch

Kiss My Itch Goodbye®, an all-natural and organic skincare product formulated to provide relief for sufferers of chronic itch, announces its ‘Farewell to Winter Itch’ campaign. This cause is a part of a broader effort to raise awareness about seasonal itch and related skin conditions.
According to research performed by several independent doctors and scientists, including studies associated with the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, winter itch is the result of a combination of factors such as: Cold, dry air, which prevents skin from retaining moisture; strong winds, which further dry the skin (the forehead and area around the eyes are most vulnerable, when going outside); excess indoor heating, which dehumidifies a room; hot showers and baths, and the use of certain shampoos and cosmetics, which also lead to dry skin; and exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays, which damage the skin (the lips and chin are sensitive to strong amounts of sunlight).
The National Center for Health Statistics estimates that nearly 26 million Americans have some form of seasonal allergy, where the most common symptoms are itchy skin, clear watery discharge from the nose, watery and bloodshot eyes, and sneezing.
“As the Northeast continues to endure record low temperatures and more snowfall, winter itch is a serious health concern for millions of people. These individuals deserve an option besides prescription medications like steroid-based creams and ointments. Kiss My Itch Goodbye® offers consumers a more holistic and potentially more effective means of fighting this disorder,” says Merry Richon, Founder of Kiss My Itch Goodbye®.
