Playing How to Battle Your Dry Winter Skin

Winter can be tough on your skin, and The Doctors share how to keep it looking good -- even possibly glow -- during the cold and dry season with these expert-recommend essentials!

Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says during the winter dehydration is more common, you might be staying indoors more, and getting less exercise, all of which can all take a toll on your skin. Dr. Ordon's tip to combat your dry winter skin is to create your own home spa and give yourself a facial.

-To open your pores and prep your skin start by steaming your face, either with a bowl of hot water and a towel, or use a steamer.

We love the NanoSteamer, which uses an ultrasonic vaporizer to produce nano steam with negatively charged ionic particles and is said to be 10 times more effective in penetrating the skin.

- Apply a mild abrasive cleanser with a facial sponge to remove dead skin and open up your pores. Be sure to apply gently and never pick, scape or poke the skin with anything sharp.

Bliss Fab Foaming 2-In-1 Cleanser & Exfoliator contains bamboo buffers and removes makeup, grime, and dirt, while gently exfoliating. It also contains rose hips, chamomile, and passionfruit and does not contain harmful chemicals, and is great for sensitive skin.

- Then use a retinol product, which will help your skin to form new collagen and elastin and that healthy glow

Neutrogena's Rapid Wrinkle Repair is anti-aging and moisturizing and can be used on the face and neck cream and claims to improve your skin in just 1 week and possibly improve wrinkles and fine lines.

- Last, apply a serum that contains amino acids and proteins, which Dr. Ordon says will help improve and boost healthy skin

Eva Naturals Skin Clearing Serum contains vitamin C to protect against UV, hyaluronic acid for dehydration, niacinamide to reduce inflammation, and salicylic acid to fight blemishes.
