1. Use a serum under your moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid. HA is a substance normally found in the body but by using it topically, it helps your skin maintain it's natural moisture which we lose during the harsher temps and forced dry air. It's perfect for all skin types, even oily skin. I loved that Bonnie said "Yes, you can have oily and dehydrated skin! One is a skin type (oily, meaning produces too much sebum) and the other is a skin condition (dehydrated, meaning lack of water)." Makes total sense.

2. Next tip was to use a heavier night cream or try a thin layer of a moisturizing "mask" at bedtime. Your skin will be gorgous, soft and hydrated when you hit the snooze button at 6 am.

3. Lip balms are essential to keeping your lips from getting chapped. Nothing looks worse than a bright lipstick layered over chapped, flaky lips. I'm making a Britney X-factor face just thinking about it. Good idea to avoid lip plumpers as they tend to contain "irritants"to help with the plumping part but may end up chapping more.
