"Using this before braving the elements will act as protective barrier to your skin. You should also use it liberally after being outside in the cold to keep skin moisturized and promote healing.

"If you do suffer from chapped areas, you should apply the ointment to the affected area and wear loose, cotton clothing over it to prevent further chapping. You should remember to take shorter, cooler showers (as opposed to hot, long showers that will strip your skin of moisture). Also try using very mild cleansers in shower to reinforce moisture balance," said Marie Watkinson, LMT is a NYC celebrity massage therapist and founder of Spa Chicks On The Go, a luxury mobile spa company in New York City.
