Eric Michaels: Why does our skin feel so dry in the winter?
Trae Bodge: The cold air really drys out the skin, as does the heat in our homes, cars and offices.
Eric Michaels: How should you adjust your skin care routine in the dry, winter months?
Trae Bodge: If you are using a cleanser that foams at all, change to a creamy, non foaming cleanser. You will also need more moisture – if you really like the moisturizers you are using, you can can supplement then with a serum, which will provide moisture and help your moisturizers work more effectively. Otherwise, you can use richer moisturizers in winter and then switch back to lighter ones in the warmer months.
