Get Soft, Supple Skin That's Never Dry

Summer isn't the only season for a glowing complexion.

Skin Tip No. 1

Protect yourself from your scratchiest wool sweaters with a thin cotton tee—the irritation from sweater-to-skin contact could cause redness and rough patches all over.

Skin Tip No. 2

UV rays can still damage your skin, even from behind winter's perpetual cloak of clouds. Keep a bottle of SPF 25 in sight and in mind.

Star Product: A Serious Face Cream

"I thought moisturizers that hydrate this well without being greasy and that actually brighten the wearer's complexion were the stuff of skin-care fairy tales—but this is so, so real." —Rebecca Bates, senior editor, @re.beccabates

Raise Your Hand If You Want Better Looking Nails

Prevent flaky cuticles, pesky hangnails, and brittle nails all at once.

Nail Tip No. 1

Keep hand lotion and cuticle cream in your bag—this will remind you to apply them on a daily basis, which will keep nails from drying and breaking under the stress of frigid climates.

Nail Tip No. 2

Don't rip hangnails! Do this instead: soak your fingers in warm water, snip hangnails with a nail clipper, then protect skin with antibacterial cream.

Star Product: The Sneaky-Luxe Hand Mask

"Melting this hand mask in the microwave makes caring for my perpetually dry nail beds a lot more fun than it ought to be." —Nicola Dall'Asen, editorial intern, @nikkidallasen
