Pick from a collection of shampoos, conditioners and 2-in-1 products, all formulated with the anti-dandruff ingredient pyrithione zinc plus a blend of oils that nourish both scalp and hair. “Instead of hair that is dry and stripped you will be 100% flake-free but with zero compromise on style,” says the expert.Find it for under $5 at CVS, Walmart and other retailers.

Hydrating Toner

Caring for skin on your face this time of year requires a delicate balance. You want to make sure it is cleansed and exfoliated, but you don’t want to strip it and leave it dry. To solve this dilemma, add Dickinson’s Enhanced Witch Hazel Hydrating Toner into your routine. Not only does it keep pores clean, it contains Vitamin E, natural witch hazel, hyaluronic acid—all great ingredients to keep your skin hydrated. “It’s also alcohol-free so you won’t feel dry or tight,” says Kaye.

Moisturizing Makeup

You should even change up your makeup in the winter, which can be tricky when matte lip looks—known to be drying—are on trend as they are this season. “That’s why I love Mary Kay Gel Semi Matte Lipstick,” says Kaye, who is wearing Powerful Pink.

The line contains gel technology that deposits rich, lasting color while adding moisture to lips to help them feel more supple and hydrated, blurring fine lines and wrinkles.
