I agree with the moisturizer tip! Moisturize lips and skin!

Another tip is to Lower the temperature of your heater especially at night – just bundle up (save energy too). It’s actually the dry heat that makes your skin dry.

Moisturizing masks save my skin in the winter time. I particularly like the Korres Yogurt Mask (I leave a thin layer on overnight per my SA’s suggestion and it works great!) and the My Beauty Diary (my favorites are Q10 and Intensive Rice Peptides) and Silk Whitia sheet masks.

I turned down the heat too. It dries me out and I wake up parched. I keep a good moisturizer by my night table. Carmex or Korres lip butter does the trick for me.

MAC careblend oils in foundation for daytime – you will get that dewy look however, your skill will appreciate it!

and for night time add some careblend oil to your usual moisturiser, or switch to a thicker lusher moisturiser.

for the lips – palmers coco butter is to die for. they come in dark cherry chocolate flarour, or dark peppermint – both smell and taste quite good – and SUPER lush for the lips. its a clear gloss 🙂

This morning the temperature was something like -15 C (about 5 F)- again! A true hardship for skin. I have a very sensitive and dry skin and I haven’t been in my 20s for ages, and although I haven’t used any heavy creams, I have had no problems, dry spots etc (and the weather has been like this for over 2 months). This has not been the case earlier. I don’t know the secret though, I just take regular care of my skin and use good products.
The tip: Don’t use waterless creams on cold weather!

a hot bath with some oil (i use coconut oil, about a tablespoon). i can’t help but take baths in the wintertime to warm up. the oil helps my skin not itch so much from the dry weather (and the extra hot water) 🙂

i apply burt’s bees res-Q ointment around my nose when it’s really cold outside. it takes away the dryness and this area doesn’t feel itchy anylonger. an the best thing is it is not greasy at all on the skin. i love the scent as well. highly recommend this stuff!

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Use a vitamin C under eye cream and face at night, and exfoliate once a week at least to get rid of dead cells and dullness.

Overhere in Denmark, we havce had snow for month and month now. So to protect my face I always apply Dermalogicas Climate Control stick to my face. It acts like a barrier against the frost. And it’s just the best thing I have tried. When you have to stay out, for example during a full hour of dogtraining, in minus 8 celcius, you’ve got to protect your skin.

I really like the new mac care blends essential oils. I like adding some to my moisturizer to give it a boost without needed to ad any new products or steps to your routine.

Best Tip Ever. Run a Humidifier in your bedroom every night. Use distilled water in your unit. I have an Air O Swiss and it saves my skins Life. Plus Drink lots of water!

I use a hydrating serum morning and night, and also maybe twice a week I do a hydrating sheet mask. Those are so awesome for making your skin feel nice and moisturized (aka bouncy!)

i use an overnight moisturiser and cream cleanser. and i wear gloves outside to stop my hands getting dry. oh, and lipbalm is a must if there’s cold wind.

for dry hands, I apply neutrogena norweigan formula and cover them in cotton gloves overnight! My hands peel in the winter and this really saves them. I love that hand cream. It’s the best!!!

Rosebud salve…everywhere, all the time!
This literally saves my lips, elbows, knuckles, heels, etc. for the entire winter.

Exfoliate once a week to get the dead skin cells off — I have oily skin, but I still get the flakies in the winter time.

Hmmm. I don’t have terribly many issues with dry skin, though its oilier to begin with, and I walk outside in harsh weather, a LOT.

Growing up in a colder climate than here though, I’m surprised there’s not more people clamoring about sunscreen! particularly when it gets snowy, i never think about how much sun I’m getting, but I get burned in the winter JUST as much! Oddly enough, sunscreen bothers my skin less in the winter than it does in the summer.

Absolutely agree with those who suggest a humidifier at home. Beyond that, moisturizing often is a must. I also try to use cleansers that require little or no water. Ironically, water (esp. hot water) can strip moisture from the skin.
