There's a certain Sex and the City episode where Samantha Jones ends up with a crazy red face from a chemical peel gone wrong. Jones's end result is enough to make anyone never want to go anywhere near skin-resurfacing treatments or products, but in reality they can be your remedy for seasonal roughness and dryness.
