CASPER, Wyo. One local physician's assistant explained that our skin is a barrier to keep moisture in.

To do that, drink two extra eight-ounce glasses of water a day.

Also, she said to avoid super hot showers and aim for warm ones.

"So with kids, it's really important to make sure they have proper outerwear especially when the weather starts dropping and the weather is colder and the wind picks up." Kate Whitaker said. "They need to be wearing a hat of some sort. Gloves... they need to protect their ears. Any part of their body that can be exposed to the cold weather and wind."

When you're washing your face, don't use harsh exfoliators and do not run the heat too warm.
