Dry Skin Survival Guide
The winter months bring a myriad of wonderful things: holiday season, the first snowfall, and sweaters galore. However, for those of us who suffer from dry skin, ‘tis the season for cracking, flaking and discomfort galore! Have no fear. We have rounded up some of the best products for your skin’s indulgence this winter.
This intensive moisturizer is pretty much the GOAT when it comes to treating dry skin. Its thick and creamy consistency is sure to help alleviate any cracking on your face, thanks to ingredients such as shea butter and colloidal oatmeal. The hype around this “cult-classic” is well-deserved, and after just one application, you will understand why.
In case you have not heard, it is now completely acceptable to put oil on your face, especially if you suffer from chronic dryness. This rich oil, which is available at most drugstores, will not clog pores. Instead, it leaves your skin feeling hydrated, soothes and even gleaming a little brighter.
Dry patches that will not budge? Try the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask to give your skin a luxurious, overnight treatment. Formulated with avocado, apricot kernel oil and Japanese seaweed, this mask repairs and quenches your skin, leaving it soft and youthful all winter long.
A personal favorite and essential part of my every-day routine is the Yes to Cucumbers Complete Care Facial Moisturizing Lotion. More lightweight (and budget friendly) than the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream, this facial lotion is great for sensitive skin. Without being greasy, the blend of cucumbers, aloe vera, and Dead Sea minerals leave skin smooth and hydrated.
For when you want to splurge, and your lips are feeling parched, the Dior Crème de Rose Lip Balm is at your service. Soothing, revitalizing and hydrating beyond belief, this completely lavish lip-balm will not only breathe new life into your winter chapped lips, but also leave them smelling like roses. What could be better?
Though these are just some of the best products to keep your skin hydrated throughout the harsh winter months to come, they’ve certainly earnedhave my a seal of approval in not only hydration, but also combativeness against the pain and discomfort that dry skin can often bring intoto our lives this season.
