Sure, there are some wintery things we can get behind—we love an excuse to blow
400 calories on hot chocolate, any snowy-cabin situation, and the chance to wrap ourselves in cozy blankets and cashmere sweaters at all times—but how our skin reacts to the cold weather is not one of them. So, we’ve rounded up a handful of products that will keep you super-hydrated all season long.
iS Clinical Youth Intensive Crème This power-packed formula provides steadfast
hydration for 24 hours and also lightly exfoliates, so your dry, drab winter complexion literally melts away. $195, available at Dermstore.com.
HydroPeptide Soothing Serum Redness Repair and Relief This lightweight wonder is formulated with calming peptides and a botanical stem cell to reduce the appearance of redness while comforting and hydrating irritated skin. $130, available at Nordstrom, nordstrom.com.
Amarte Overnight Express Therapy This multi-function sleeping mask will have you waking up to a fresher, more hydrated you. Silk extract brightens and tightens while propolis cera serves as an anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial healing emollient. $79, available at
NeoCell Beauty Bursts This award-winning chew tastes as good as candy, but they actually make your skin look better by treating it from the inside out. Collagen Type I and III provide the body’s beauty protein, strengthening skin, hair, and nails. Hyaluronic Acid (a.k.a. nature’s moisturizer) hydrates, while vitamin C is essential to boosting collagen production. $12.99, available at The Vitamin Shoppe, vitaminshoppe.com.
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Firming Skin Butter We’re firm believers that you don’t need to drop a lot of coin to find a great body moisturizer. Case in point, one of our favorites is an oldie but a goodie from Palmer’s. While we love its creamy cocoa butter goodness, we do have to admit that thanks to a holiday cookie binge, we chose the formula with the firming qualities of co-enzyme Q10. $7.49, available at Walgreens, walgreens.com.
Bio Oil Multi-Use Skin Oil This all-in-one wonder literally cures any beauty woe that ails you—including frayed cuticles, uneven skin tone, scars, and stretch marks! Use as a bath oil or simply apply where necessary. Thanks to PureCellin in the formula, this oil won’t stain your clothes or sheets. $12.99, available at Ulta, ulta.com.
