When flakiness and chapped lips are hard to avoid

Beauty tutorials are big on YouTube -- a search for "makeup tutorial" and "hair tutorial" yields more than 5 million videos. In this weekly series, we put a mix of popular and under-the-radar tutorials to the test and show you what's best.

It's no secret that weather wreaks havoc on the skin — your regular skincare and makeup products are just no match for frigid wind and snow storms. I've found that at this time of year, if I don't take absolutely perfect care of my skin in the morning, it will crack and flake by the time I get home at night. 

YouTube vlogger Melanie Murphy may still be a student, but she seems wise beyond her years when it comes to skincare. She's from Ireland and has the most adorable accent as well as a wacky sense of humor. Plus, she isn't afraid to call 'bs' on an overpriced brush or product directions. 

Watch her tutorial below to learn about how serums, exfoliation and face mists can make all the difference during the colder months.
