They switch cleansers
Winter isn’t the season for antibacterial or deodorant soaps, which can leave your skin parched, says Christine Choi Kim, MD, a dermatologist in Santa Monica, California. A better bet: creamy, hydrating cleansers that put moisture back into the skin. Don’t miss the best anti-aging secrets that dermatologists won’t tell you for free.
They take short, lukewarm showers
“It’s tempting to take a long, hot shower when it’s freezing outside, but that’s the exact opposite of what your skin needs,” says Philadelphia dermatologist Nazanin Saedi, MD. Hot water can strip natural oils from your skin, causing it to dry out. Instead, Dr. Saedi recommends keeping water temps on the tepid side and making it quick (5 to 10 minutes, tops) when you’re in the tub.
