Dry hands and feet even during summer?
This could be related to your body type. For those with asthenic qi and blood circulation, your skin may not get the needed nourishment, which can cause skin dryness and cracking. The condition could worsen during changing of seasons, especially during early summer when it rains more and temperature is not stable. When cold temperature occurs suddenly, blood circulation within your four limbs is especially vulnerable which leads to cold limbs and dry skin. Try eating more foods that nourishes the heart and blood flow to improve the condition.
