The Winter Skin Essentials You Need
We too have a love/hate relationship with the cold.
I hope all you fellow dry skin folks are surviving and thriving A.T.M. because I’m sure not—and I have all the proof. I’ve never been more thankful for my mask because underneath it is hormonal acne and random dry patches galore. Despite what it may seem, I’m not shaming my imperfections. In fact, I’m comfortable in my skin, and love embracing my acne scars, but I wouldn’t mind not dealing with eczema every winter. This is especially devastating because winter is my favorite time of year, AND is simultaneously when my skin is at its worst.
If you too deal with this dilemma, look no further. From creamy moisturizers to hydrating serums, here are the best products to tackle all your winter skincare blues.
This moisturizer is just as dreamy as it sounds. With four types of hyaluronic acids and ceramides, this cream moisturizes the skin in just a few minutes. Each ingredient targets every layer of the skin to prevent water loss and provide all day moisture. It is also vegan, lightweight and fragrance free for even the most sensitive skin types.
Say goodbye to dark circles with this brightening eye cream. A pearlescent cream that not only brightens and reduces puffiness, but hydrates the under eye area. It contains nourishing ingredients like niacinamide and squalane to keep the eye area looking smooth and refreshed. This cream can also be used on the face as a moisturizer and/or make-up primer, so you basically got yourself a 3-in-1 deal.
Another 3-in-1 product that is a moisturizer, serum and eye gel all in one go. Great for normal to combination skin types, this hydrating and energizing serum keeps skin moisturized for up to 48 hours. At first, it feels tacky on the skin, but once absorbed, the skin is left super soft to the touch, refreshed and glowing.
This face oil from GOOP is high-performing to diminish fine lines, hydrate the skin and improve skin brightness. Thanks to active ingredients like nutrient-dense oils, organic amla and squalane, skin texture can be improved in as little as four weeks. All you need is 2 to 4 drops daily to have the skin of your dreams.
Made with 100% natural and plant-based ingredients, Saje’s True Dew Cream Cleanser wipes away grime and gets rid of make-up without disrupting the moisture barrier. You won’t have to worry about the tight skin feeling with this cleanser because it’s specifically meant for dry and mature skin types. Avocado and aloe vera deeply hydrate the skin, while rose otto strengthens skin elasticity to improve radiance.
Apparently one is sold every minute globally, and if that doesn’t convince you enough, then I don’t know what else will. In order to help penetrate and seal in moisture, Lano’s 101 Superbalm uses ultra medical grade Aussie lanolin—a safer, natural alternative to petroleum. And since it’s multi-use, you can use it on your lips, face, cuticles, elbows, insect bites and more. An added plus is that it has been dermatologist-tested, is vegetarian, baby-friendly and has not been animal tested.
With this cult-favorite body cream from Bliss, you will no longer have to worry about those pesky dry patches. Coconut and shea butter work together to soften, condition and deeply nourish the skin without leaving a greasy residue. It is also available in four different scents for you to smell good while keeping your skin moisturized and soothed.
