Pardon the following not-so-sexy confession: Almost every winter, I get a dry patch on the same spot on my left leg due to the cold temperatures. I made an appointment with my dermatologist a couple of years ago, and she prescribed a cream but said that I could prevent the dry patch by spending more time moisturizing each morning.
It was as simple as that, but through the experience, I learned the importance of developing a regular moisturizing routine that includes both daily and biweekly tricks to prevent dryness!
In addition to applying lotion on a daily basis, hydrating should start in the shower. I use the Olay® Winter Retreat Collection, which is available in both bar soap and body wash, to restore moisture in my winter-dry skin.

Make sure to exfoliate at least once every two weeks (or once a week) to remove dead skin cells. You can create your own oatmeal scrub at home. Here’s how:
Step 1: In a bowl, add oatmeal and water, and mix. For extra moisture, add a few drops of your favorite oil or moisturizer.
Step 2: Gently scrub on your legs. Rinse and remove with a damp towel.
