NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – The cold dry air of winter can wreak havoc on skin. Learn ways to protect yourself with beauty expert Christina Marrale.

Most people know to keep skin moisturized, but if you feel that it’s not enough Marrale says exfoliating is key. “When you’re exfoliating you’re getting all of this dead dry skin off of your skin, and allowing the product to absorb better,” said Marrale. She recommends exfoliating 1-2 times per week.

If you’re concerned with a specific cosmetic issue head to for a free online consultation.  The dermatologists can help suggest necessary treatments and explain what is best for your skin this fall.
