Long gone are the days of summer faces filled with extra moisture and a dewy glow, soft hands and sandal-ready feet. The cold months have arrived, causing dryness from head to toe.

It’s time to replace your warm-weather beauty regimen with products that boost hydration and shed dead skin cells.

Here are a few products to get you glowing again:

Tips for winter skincare:

Use a natural oil-based moisturizer for both day and night — it creates a barrier to lock in the moisture.

Exfoliate dead skin from the face and body with a gentle non-abrasive scrub. Exfoliating allows moisturizer to penetrate even deeper into the skin.

A hydrating mist is an easy way to add extra moisture to the face.

Avoid hot showers, which dry out the skin.

Drink plenty of water to hydrate from the inside out.
