Think beyond the face. For starters, gloves. We know, we know. You forget to throw them on or lose one on the way to work. But for starters, wearing gloves outside is important. For lips, consider fragrance-free and hypoallergenic Vaseline. Gohara recommends Vaseline Rosy Lip Therapy Balm, a tin that's hydrating and tinted.
Chicago dermatologist Dr. Rachel Pritzker tells patients to add Vaseline to hands and cracked or dry areas of feet before bed. Add regular gloves and socks to amp up moisture, or buy ones specifically for the task, like Iluminage’s Skin Rejuvenating Gloves that can be worn at night. And all dermatologists issued a reminder that sunscreen is still important in the winter — rays remain present.
Don't forget the lower legs. Often, Petronic-Rosic said, she sees patients with very dry skin on their lower legs, where cold air reaches in above socks. Wear longer socks, or pay extra attention to that area when you're moisturizing.
