Look for non-clogging oils like almond, mineral and avocado. You can also use products with humectants, substances that attract moisture to the skin. Pay special attention to your feet and hands, which tend to dry out more than the rest of the body. Solid lotion bars made of essential oils, Shea butter and beeswax can soothe calluses and promote longlasting eﬀects. Stick with Sunscreen Even if the sun doesn't seem to be shining as much, its rays can still be harmful. In fact, winter sun along with snow glare can be just as damaging as summer sunshine. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen (with an SPF of at least 15) thirty minutes before going outside, and reapply throughout the day if you'll be outdoors. Protect your lips from the sun as well. Because lips do not contain glands glands or lipids to hold in moisture, it's necessary to keep them hydrated. So carry lip balm and apply it generously.

If you can, put on thin cotton gloves under wool ones to avoid irritation from the wool while staying warm. And when gloves and socks get wet, pull them oﬀ, as they can cause your skin to crack, itch and possibly develop sores or eczema. • Extraordinary & Experienced Dental Team FAMILY, COSMETIC & IMPLANT DENTISTRY Voted one of THE BEST DENTISTS in America Selected as a TOP DENTIST in New Jersey Monthly Magazine Food to Fight the Elements You can help maintain your healthy winter skin by eating right.
