I have dry skin all year 'round, but in the winter my Alligator Factor really ramps up. I solve the problem by stashing travel-size balms in every purse (so I don't have to remember to transfer them), on my bedside table, in my car...everywhere. Other essentials: anti-frizz cream, great mascara, and red lipstick.
More details in my video on the blog today:
One more little secret? Saran Wrap and Vaseline. When my feet get really dry and chapped, I slather on Vaseline, wrap them in Saran Wrap, and then sleep in cotton socks.
