Here’s an infographic presented by Wishing U Well. It explains how winter affects our skin and how to handle it.

This infographic provides an overview of winter's negative effects on the eyes, lips, hands, feet, and skin. Overall, the piece gives insight into common ailments as well as how to avoid or remedy them. While the use of photography throughout the piece is consistent, the infographic could benefit from more targeted visuals to communicate the depth of the information presented here. As is, the choice to use photography places some limitations on developing the connection between the subject's narrative and the information's detail. Additionally, since the content does most of the work to convey the infographic's information, trimming it down could help highlight the information and make the key points more easily accessible for the reader. There are some helpful tips here, but the reader has to work to find them. We'd give this a D.
