The Tipping List
Help for Dry Skin
Stave off alligator skin this winter with these luscious products
A trade-off of fall’s cooler weather can be rough, flaky and even uncomfortable skin. But a little help from these products can help you stay smooth and soft from head to toe.
Dry facial skin can be more than a nuisance; it can become a beauty issue when it interferes with how your makeup goes on, or when scaling and peeling become visible. Just in time for winter, Ahava has launched a line of super-hydrating products made with Dead Sea mud for face and body. We like the Dermud Gentle Soothing Facial Cleanser because it does more than boost moisture levels; it calms the itching and irritation that can accompany dry skin. $20, ahavaus.com
Combine hot showers and cold weather and you have a recipe for dry, itchy skin. To soothe extremely dry or sensitive skin, Gabriel Couzian Washing Oil turns into a cream when mixed with water and delivers a dose of aloe vera, olive oil and vitamin E to calm, soothe and prevent further moisture loss. $45, blissworld.com
We all know that our hands are the most exposed to the elements, and just because the temperatures are cooler doesn’t mean that we don’t need protection from the sun. Neutrogena Norwegian Age Shield Hand Cream is a wallet-friendly yet intense moisturizer that includes SPF 30 to prevent dreaded age spots. $6.79, drugstore.com
Often the first part of the body to be ravaged by the change of seasons, the lips need special care. The good news is you don’t need to spend a lot of money, and Vaseline is a great beauty bargain. Use it on its own to protect your lips (you’ll also get a great glossy finish) or along with a baby toothbrush to give your lips a flake-eliminating exfoliating treatment.
