@zen bride: Not sure if these tips will help you but I have the same problem in the winter…I sometimes use a sugar and olive oil scrub to gently exfoliate. You probably just need to exfoliate, but you can use all sorts of things from your kitchen, depending on your skin type. try sugar or maybe oats (ground in a food processor), etc.

@zen bride:  I have a winter skin secret that will cost 90 bucks (cheaper than a lot of great moisturizers out there): get a humidifier!  I’m not even kidding you.  I got one about a month ago due to the gross, dry Chicago winters, and I have noticed a HUGE difference.  I still have dry areas here and there, but people often comment about how my skin has such a nice glow to it.  I also drink a lot of water, and I take fish oil pills every day.  My skin care specialist at Barneys told me that taking oils internally will also help your skin.

Try the humidifier for a few weeks – I promise you, there will be a noticeable difference!

Drinks lots of water! My skin feels so much better when I’m better hydrated

If you’re using the scrubs yourself, I recently realized that I just hadn’t been scrubbing hard enough or long enough to get the most out of it, so now I’m getting much better results with the same product.

Drinking water, using soft gentle scrubs with rounded (not rough!) scrubbing beads, using serum under moisturizer at bedtime, humidifier, and a Clarisonic are all things I as a pro suggest to my clients. 

To fake it, use highlighter on the bridge of your nose, in the corners of your eyes by the tear ducts on your cheeckbone, in the cleft above your top lip, and a touch on your forehead.

 

MAC strobe cream, MakeUp Forever Luminzer, and those types of products will help you fake a glow with your makeup!

Nutrition’s the biggest one.  I swear by veggie juice and vitamins.  Every time I juice veggies (carrot, beet, celery, orange, apple, & ginger) I get comments about how I’m glowing.  I’ve also found fish oil has nice effects.

 

Humidifier & hydrate the hell out of your skin are good suggestions, too.  Ponds is the best (and fortunately cheapest) skin cream I’ve used.  Every few days maybe try a natural oil like almond oil.  My dry skin was scaly and gross, and since using almond oil on my body it’s much better!
