The first step in fighting off dry winter-skin is a good cleanser that will gently keep your skin fresh without irritating it. Many cleanser’s are too harsh and only add to the problem but Kiehl’s calendula cleanser is infused with an oil extracted from the marigold flower which gives it soothing properties that will keep your skin fresh all winter long.

2. EXFOLIATE & MAXIMIZE
A big step in getting your dry skin back on track is getting rid of flakes with exfoliation. With once-a-week PMD Personal Microderm treatments you can slough away those dry patches of skin without running the risk of over exfoliating. As an added bonus weekly microdermabrasion treatments with the PMD will maximize the absorption of your topical products which will aid in further moisturizing that dry winter skin!

After you’ve cleansed and exfoliated your next step toward glowing winter-skin is hydration. Clinique’s Moisture Surge Intense Hydrator is the perfect way to add some needed moisture to that dry winter skin!

The fourth and final step in fighting winter-skin is protection. Summer isn’t the only season during which your skin needs protection from the sun. Keep your skin, and all your work in keeping it moisturized, safe from those UVA/UVB rays with a scent-free SPF. Kiehl’s sun protecter also acts as a lotion and is perfect for sensitive skin!
