You can't change the weather (hello, humidity), but you can control its effect on your skin.
—Start with a power shower, keeping water temperature tepid to lessen puffiness, says Rouleau.
—Look for low-foaming shower gels without sodium lauryl sulfate, a harsh cleansing ingredient that tends to be superdrying. If skin is dehydrated, wash with a nourishing lotion-based body wash, like Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash, $4.
—Apply a moisturizer with glycerin or hyaluronic acid right away to seal water into skin; these hydrators are light but powerful and won't clog pores.
—Remember the three key letters: S-P-F. Stick to a sunblock with a minimum of 30, make sure it is broad-spectrum and, most important, reapply every two hours when in direct sunlight.
Give your tootsies a little well-deserved TLC.
—Sloughing off dead cells is essential for smooth soles, according to Dr. Lupo, who suggests lightly scrubbing daily with a textured paddle in the shower.
—In the evening soak feet for 10 minutes to soften. Pat dry, rub on foot cream and slip socks on to help lotion penetrate. Try Freeman Bare Foot Repair for Pain Relief, $6, with calming camphor and menthol.
