1.Take shorter showers
No more singing the National Anthem while basking in the steam of a hot shower. Hot water actually dehydrates your skin by removing its normal, protective oils. Take a shorter shower (no more than 10 minutes) to keep your skin from drying out. When you exit the shower, apply lotion immediately, while your skin is still warm and damp, to seal in the moisture.

2.Switch facial cleansers
Use a creamy cleanser instead of a gel cleanser during the winter. Also, switch to a richer formula of facial moisturizer.

3.Run a humidifier
Dry, indoor heating strips the air – and your skin – of moisture. Prevent flaky and cracked skin by running a humidifier at night to keep the air moist.

4.Apply hand cream liberally
We tend to wash our hands more often in the winter, in the interest of fighting off colds and flu. Unfortunately, public restroom soaps and antibacterial hand sanitizers dry out your skin. Use hand cream throughout the day to hydrate your skin.

5.Drink water
Dry, chapped lips are often a sign of dehydration. When it’s cool outside, we often drink fewer fluids, which results in chapped lips. Try to drink 8-10 glasses of water per day to keep your skin nourished with fluids.

6.Moisturize pre-workout
The high sodium (salt) content of perspiration can be drying to your skin. Apply moisturizer before you workout. The moisture will seep into your pores, which naturally open during exercise, and offer a protective barrier against the sodium and bacteria.

Keep your skin vitalized by removing dead skin cells 2-3 times per week. Products that contain loofah or jojoba offer natural exfoliation without irritating your skin.

8.Avoid Tanning
The heat and UV rays from tanning salons dehydrates your skin and accelerates aging. If you can’t face the world without a sun-kissed glow, try a tinted moisturizer instead.
