Layers of clothing, chilly temperatures and indoor heating systems wreak havoc on your complexion. Luckily, Dr. Zein Obagi of Zo Skin Health has the answer to maintaining radiant, touchable skin all season long.

Don’t Overcompensate.
Don’t turn the electric blanket up too high, and avoid using space heaters, which are very dehydrating. If you live in a cold climate, make sure that the air at home has sufficient humidity. If necessary, buy a small humidifier for your living areas and bedroom.

Skip the Hot Shower.
Even though a long hot shower may feel good, it dries out your skin. A short lukewarm shower, 5 minutes or less, is preferred. Twice a week, use a scrub to slough off dead skin cells. This will also help moisturizers penetrate and work more efficiently. Always look for gentle cleansers that are free of harsh detergents.

Hydrate from the Inside Out.
Sip on at least eight glasses of water throughout the day. Avoid beverages that dehydrate your skin like energy drinks, caffeinated beverages, soda and wine.

Load Up on Sunscreen.
It’s tempting to overdose on creams and lotions when your skin feels dry, but it actually disrupts the natural moisturizing process. It’s much better to apply a hydrating sunscreen with antioxidants and melanin. Not only are you protecting your skin, you’re also preventing future damage.
