8 Solutions for Your Winter Beauty Woes
You've heard it a million times before: You need more moisture in the winter. But when you're suffering from cracked nails or a scaly scalp, it's too late for prevention -- it's all about solutions. Here are cures for all your winter woes
If your skin is dry, chapped or irritated, New York City dermatologist and psychiatrist Amy Wechsler, MD, recommends adding two to four cups of whole milk to a warm (not hot) bath and soaking for 20 minutes. The fat, amino acid, and vitamins A and D will calm your skin. Then, gently scrub. "Milk's lactic acid weakens the glue that lets dry, ready-to-shed cells stick to the skin's surface," she explains. You'll be able to easily buff away the scaly skin.
