How To Take Winter Skin From Blah To Beautiful (Yes, It's Possible!)

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.
Anyone can slap on some moisturizer, but to get the real deal on winter's biggest skin gripes, we reached out to Scottsdale, Arizona-based dermatologist Dr. Jennifer Linder (who also happens to be PCA Skin's chief scientific officer). Dr. Linder is full of smart, scientifically-based advice that might surprise you (bet you never thought that acne might be caused by a lack of fatty acids in the skin). Read up on her genius tips; they'll help you get — and stay — super-soft for the rest of the season!
