Dry winter skin is a big bummer. A secret tip I've found is that baby products are often just what I need to feel pampered and soft -- they're good for all ages. And I have backup on my scientific theory: Dr. Mona Gohara, Assistant Clinical Professor, Yale University Department of Dermatology, gave us a few tips and product picks to help (and you can win all the products she mentions, and more from Mustela -- see below!): ♥ Be gentle. "Avoid using anything abrasive on your skin, like a loofah -- use a soft cloth with a soap-free foaming cleaner, such as Mustela Stelatopia Cream Cleanser (pictured), which gently cleanses without drying." Another pro-tip: Wear soft fabrics against your skin, like cotton, under a rougher wool sweater.
♥ "Use a body lotion (preferably one that contains glycerine or vegetable oil) within three to five minutes after getting out of the shower -- the ambient heat will help seal in more moisture."
♥ "Yes, you still need to wear sunscreen. UV rays reflect off snow as much as they do sand -- use a mineral-based sunscreen with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. I like Mustela Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Mineral Sunscreen Lotion."
