This is typically the time of year when North Texans start noticing dry skin and chapped lips.

When cold air settles in during the colder months of the year, the air tends to be very dry.

We know this by measuring the dew point. Dew point is the measure of moisture in the air and it is a good indicator of how humid it feels outside. Warm air can hold more moisture than cold air.

That has been very evident this season. This fall season has been warmer than normal.

On Thursday, Dallas-Fort Worth International Air

port recorded its first record high temperature of the year. Friday will see temperatures at record high levels, too.

Skincare expert Louise Proulx, owner of Renew Beauty in Dallas and Frisco, says she has not seen as many clients complaining about dry skin this December. With cooler weather bound to arrive, she says that now is the time to start preparing.

“As the seasons change, so does your skincare," explained Proulx. "So, as we see the weather changing in the coming weeks, now it will be important that you hydrate by drinking water. Make sure you are using great moisturizers and active ingredients."

Proulx recommends using products with hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and peptides. They will protect and moisturize the skin. This is especially important because when the weather turns colder, we also spend more time indoors in the heat. When you run the heater, it lowers the humidity inside your home or building.

“We are seeing an increase in interest in oil-based moisturizers,” said Proulx. "The types of oils clients are asking for are essential and organic oils. They are becoming more popular as people are becoming more educated on active ingredients."
