1. Exfoliate Less

Dr. Frances Jang, a Vancouver-based dermatologist at Skinworks, says that we should resist the urge to scrub away flaky, dead skin cells when the temperature drops. “The skin is a little more sensitive in winter,” she says. “If you’re using a hand-held microdermabrader, glycolic exfoliators, or retinols, I would caution people, don’t overdo it.” Dr. Jang says these exfoliating tools can make dry skin worse in the winter especially when they’re used too often.
