The thermometer's dropping, the wind is blowing, and you can't even remember what humidity feels like. Yep, it's the gray dead of winter, and chances are, your skin is feeling it. The rough weather can wreak major havoc on skin, lips, cuticles — you name it, and it's probably in a dry, flaking tailspin right about now.

Read up on her genius tips; they'll help you get — and stay — super-soft for the rest of the season!
