2. Prep damp hair with a styling cream such as Living Proof Nourishing Styling Cream ($26, sephora.com).

Any sort of extreme weather can cause serious beauty dilemmas, and the cold weather that wreaks havoc on your skin also puts your hair at risk. The dry, cold air saps the moisture out of your strands, which can make your hair dry, frizzy, lackluster, and weak.

And for chapped lips in the Winter, you can dab on a bit of eye cream instead of lip balm as a primer. It will stop that bold lip color from bleeding into every crack and crease.
Hands: People say that your hands can reveal your age before your face. So why not combat the signs of aging with a little boosted treatment? Thick hand creams and typically more watery eye creams are on opposite ends of the consistency spectrum. But the wrinkle-fighting ingredients in under-eye
