As we’ve previously discussed, creams are often more effective than lotions in combatting dry winter skin because they create a moisture barrier. The crème de la crème of the bunch (pun intended): Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer with SPF 30.
The fragrance of this decadent lotion (dubbed a “soufflé”) is unlike anything you’ve smelled before. Think: Wafts of rose, vanilla and warm wood.
TokyoMilk Dark ($40)
A tried-and-true favorite of beauty-industry insiders, this little ditty is infused with marine-plant stem cells that boost the natural production of collagen (something that helps dry winter skin stay plump).
La Mer ($320)
Unlike said night serums, this lightweight oil can be worn any time of day. In fact, it’s so absorbent that you can even dab it over your makeup for the days you’re feeling particularly parched.
Lotion can be tricky. You want to hydrate but also keep your face looking somewhat matte. That’s where Image Skincare Prevention + comes in. The lotion is thick enough to moisturize but won’t create any midday shine.
Image Skincare ($25)
Turns out, combatting winter skin itch can be achieved right in the drugstore aisle. Look for one with rash-calming oats.
If you’re partial to the new wave of super-hydrating gel moisturizers, this one from Laneige feels like dunking your face in a bucket of water.
Finding the right winter moisturizer can be almost as challenging as finding the right winter coat. You want one that’s strong yet lightweight. One that’s hydrating but won’t make you look like a total greaseball by 2 p.m. To help you on your quest, we’ve rounded up ten of our favorite cold-weather skin quenchers.
