Q: What products, in addition to moisturizer, need to be upgraded as the weather gets cooler?A: "What you use to cleanse," Kauvar says also plays a key role in your skin's hydration level. She explains that if you currently use a foaming or exfoliating cleanser and your skin feels dry, you may want to switch to a creamy cleanser like CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser, $12. Exfoliating will also dry out your skin, so if you use a scrub or products that contain exfoliating ingredients like retinol, glycolic acid or lactic acid you may want to use them less often during the winter or swap them for a more gentle version of what you're currently using.
