Dermatologists caution that a hot bath can zap skin’s moisture—but come on, sometimes it’s needed for mental wellness! So here’s how to make it hydrating: First, pour in one to two tablespoons of a moisturizing bath oil like Avon Skin So Soft Original Bath Oil. “Limit your tub time to 15 minutes, and don’t use body wash until the very end—its cleansing agents can be drying, so you don’t want to soak in them,” says Dr. Wechsler.

If your skin is extra parched, stir two to three cups of whole milk into your bath. “It’s nourishing and has great anti-inflammatory properties, and its lactic acid will help clear away flaky or ashy patches,” she says.

In the winter, when your skin is drier, more dead cells can build up on the surface, hiding your glow. A moisturizer with salicylic acid will help. “It’ll gently dissolve dead skin, and if you use it nightly, it’ll prevent the dullness or ashiness from returning,” notes Dr. Wechsler. Pick a formula with hardworking hydrators such as glycerin, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid. CeraVe Renewing SA Cream ($19, drugstores) has all three.
