Fall and winter are the seasons where our skin becomes dry and cracked the most – learning how to properly moisturize is key! So today, we’re’ sharing the best tips to fight dry skin this fall and the rest of the holiday season.
When talking about dry skin, it is important to first figure out what type of skin you have: normal, dry, or combination. If you have normal skin, there are some recommended skin products that allow you to get the most flawless skin in cold weather. We like CeraVe: Facial Moisturizing Lotion, Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream with SPF 30, Kate Somerville RetAsphere 2 in 1 Night Cream, and Eve Lom TLC Cream, in particular.
For dry skin, you can use more affordable products such as Aquaphor Advanced Therapy cream, Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Sunscreen (this is the best SPF sunscreen to put under foundation to protect your skin while giving it moisture!), and Clinique’s Youth Surge Night Cream. For more expensive dry skin must-haves, turn to L’Occitane’s Protective Crema SPF 20, Renee Rouleau Glow Enhancing Cream for long-lasting moisture, and Eve Lom’s face cream for dry skin. All of these products aid in giving your skin that extra moisture during the cold months.
People who have oily skin tend to shy away from ultra-hydrating creams for fear of having their skin becoming clogged and their face becoming too oily. But don’t worry! The following products give your skin the moisture you need without making your skin irritated: Renee Rouleau SPF 30 Sunscreen and the sheer moisture moisturizer, Cetaphil Oil Control Moisture, and finally, the Eminence Organize Skincare Thermal Spring Whip Moisturizer, which smells great and is easy on the skin.
Combination skin is the most common skincare type with the changing of the seasons. Yes To Tomatoes has a great daily balancing moisturizer for combo skin. If you want to take your skin up a notch, there is the Kiehl’s “oil-free” Moisturizer, which does wonders for combo skin throughout the seasons.
