Here in Vermont and for most of the Northeast, fall and winter seasons mean drier air inside and outside of your home. This change in humidity levels directly affects your skin and how it functions. When the skin does not have enough hydration, it cannot function normally. Here are a few tips from Skincare specialist Abigail Zsenai of Facials on the Green.


to help prevent dehydrated, dry, flaky, inflamed skin this winter season:

1. Wash your face with lukewarm water over the sink gently (as opposed to in the shower with scorching hot water).

2. Clean your face with a sulfate-free, chemical-free, gentle facial cleanser instead of bar soap.

3. Use a humidifier in your home or office to put moisture back into the air.

4. Apply both a facial oil and moisturizer day and night specialized for your individual skin type.

5. Drink more water than usual to keep hydrated.

6. Exfoliate two to three times per week at home and receive a professional exfoliation with a licensed esthetician at the start of each new season to prepare the skin for the change in humidity levels.
