Don’t let your skin dry out this chilly winter!

Wondering why your skin gets so thirsty in the winter? “In the colder months, skin becomes less oily. Plus, outdoor elements such as the hard wind and indoor culprits such as dry heat can excessively dry out the skin,” says Dr. Howard D. Sobel Director of The N.Y. Institute of Cosmetic Dermatology & Laser Surgery. To replenish lost moisture, right after your get out of the shower “apply a thick moisturizer while your skin is still damp. This way, the moisturizer can absorb deeper into your skin,” adds Dr. Sobel. So, pick up one of these super-moisturizing drugstore finds and slather it on daily to keep your skin glowing all winter! – Marta Topran
