For many of us, winter is not only the season for fun times in the snow and by the fireplace, but for dry, dull, itchy skin when every part of your body suffers -- from your cheeks and lips to your hands and feet.

What is it about wintertime that stresses skin so? The answer has everything to do with moisture levels: the skin's inability to keep and replenish it while exposed to the season's cold temperatures, lashing winds, and extremely low humidity levels (both indoors and out). Add to that our well-intentioned, but extremely drying,....

I'm 67 and my skin is so oily. It looks fine when I first put make-up on, but it seems to get more oily throughout the day, even in winter. What can I do?
