When the weather gets fierce, go gentle on your skin. Some tips from the experts at Dove on how to combat dry winter skin include:
Resist taking too many long, hot showers, which can wash away skin's natural oils.
Avoid using deodorant and antibacterial soaps, which can dry skin.
Use a humidifier or vaporizer to add moisture into the air and keep the thermostat low.
And finally, moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
