How do you make your winter dry skin feel better?

At this time of year the air goes horribly dry here in Sweden, we actually have snow on the ground. So in order to boost my at the moment super dry skin, I am trying out a broccoli serum filled with vitamin C. Right now André is trying to steal it from me becuase at the end of the day it always somehow ends up in his bathroom…
 
Here are some fun facts about the health benefits of broccoli: They are derived from the unique mixture of nutrients, organic compounds, minerals, and vitamins that are found in broccoli. These include significant amounts of vitamin C, vitamin K, dietary fiber, folate, potassium, selenium, vitamin A, manganese, tryptophan, vitamin B6, and phosphorus. Not to bad ha?
 
On top of trying the care for my skin for on the outside I am eating tons of healthy fats and trying to drink loads of water. And to night I am going to put some plain honey on my face, that normally does the trick for my skin. I also love to cover my skin in coconut oil this time a year. What are your best tricks to make your skin feel better?
