While it is finally starting to feel like winter in the Hamptons, don't let the cold weathther wreak havoc on your skincare routine. Here are a few tips from dermatologist and founder of Doctor's Dermatologic Formula (DDF), Dr. Howard Sobel along with Hamptons.com winter skincare must have products.

According to Dr. Sobel to adapt our skin for the winter months, its best to use prepare ahead of time. When the temperatures start to change, you should also change up your skin care routine to go with the seasons. Switch you're your beauty cabinet and fill it with hydrating, thicker creams that are heavy and more moisturizing than what you would use in the summer and fall.

One of the newest trends Dr. Sobel said which is worth checking out are hand held devices that are to be used at home. They can brush away dead skin cells to reveal brighter, smoother skin. He says products such as the Clarisonic or DDF's Revolve 400X are very popular.

The most important product to use is a moisturizer with a sunscreen which is key all year long, not just during summer. This should be a top priority in your skincare regimen. With cold temperatures and harsh winds, skin is left dry, red and flaky so moisturize in the morning with a product that has a sunscreen and antioxidants and make sure you use a night cream that contains a retinol. Hamptons.com winter skincare musts include:
