Wouldn't it be nice if you didn't have to treat dry skin this Winter — if you could prevent it from getting all dried out in the first place? Elena Capo of NYC's Cowshed Spa has a few tips on how you can prevent dry skin from happening right now. Check out her advice.
Don't flake on moisturising products: Use creamy cleansers, serums and daily moisturisers.
Hold the retinol: "Some women like to use retinol as an anti-ageing cream, but in a lot of cases, it tends to make your skin sensitive and flaky," Elena explains.
Hydrate from within: As always, drink plenty of water.
Oil up: Fish oil, evening primrose oil and flaxseed oil can each help combat dryness.
What to avoid: To prevent irritation, stay away from artificially fragrant products and hot showers.
