Winter is coming to an end soon, and after four months of cold, dry and windy weather, our skin has taken a beating.

Your skin is the foundation to any great beauty look — so make sure to get it back in tiptop shape with these suggestions from Professional Makeup & Hair Artist Amy Beth Duclos. She helps us pinpoint the problem areas women in their 30s face after experiencing the harsh winter months and what can be done and used to help mend that area of the skin.

In your 30s

In your 30s, “cell turnaround starts to slow down, so you might feel that your skin is looking a little dull along with being dry,” says Duclos. “Areas that may be most dry during the cold months are the lips, nose and around the eyes, as well hands and feet.”

The fix? Duclos says you can consider opting for microdermabrasion or some simple peels at the spa that you can introduce into your routine once a month or every couple months during the winter season. She suggests choosing all natural products and spas that are highly reputable for these procedures.

Duclos says that something you can do is “you can add into your daily skin care routine an eye cream and a more intensive night cream.”
