Quick Dry Skin Fixes

  • Wash with warm water.  Hot water is a no-no, especially during the cold weather months; It zaps skin of moisture.
  • Exfoliate your skin. Moisturizers work more effectively on exfoliated skin. We heart Kiehl’s Pineapple Papaya Facial Scrub and Clinique’s 7 Day Scrub Cream.   
  •  Try a Humidifier.  Consider sleeping with a humidifier in your bedroom. The low-humidity it emits can work wonders on the skin. *It’s important to replace water with each use, if not, it can develop mold which can make you sick.
  •  Avoid drying soaps. Look for soaps that are most ideal for dry skin (see our faves above).
  • Protect your skin with a great moisturizer. Find one that works best for your skin type (see recommendations above).
