First and foremost, you have to remedy the dull, flaky situation that has become your skin after months of dry Winter air. To get a clean slate, start a regular exfoliation regimen twice a week.
You can use either chemical or exfoliating scrubs to get rid of the rough outer layer of skin. We like to start the new season off with a serious peel like Ole Henriksen Power Peel ($45). Your lips likely need extra attention, too. So, slather on a lip scrub to remove chapped skin.
