The 6 Best Products to Protect Your Skin This Winter

Good Morning! We’ve got at least a month or two left of cold weather, and I wanted to talk a bit about skincare. Our skin tends to get drier in the winter, due to the drop in humidity levels, and the water in your skin evaporates quicker because the outside air is so cold and dry. To avoid this, look for skincare products that cater to dry, normal, and combination skin. Here’s 6 great one’s that I’ve found:

Foaming cleansers aren’t the best to use in the winter, because they tend to strip your skin of oil. And since our skin is already drier than it would be in other times of the year, you don’t want that. Instead, try something like the Dermalogica PreCleanse, which is a plant based cleansing oil.

The Main Squeeze – Daily Cream Cleanser by Vanity Planet is another option, it’s a cream cleanser with flower extracts.

While finding a cleanser made especially for dry skin can be a challenge, finding a moisturizer isn’t as difficult. There’s TONS of moisturizers out there that are great for dry skin. The Ordinary is a vegan and cruelty free brand, and they have some really good skincare products. Their product “Natural Moisturizing Factors +HA” is a hydrating formula, and it works best after applying a serum.

“The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb” by Belif is another good option, it works for dry and normal skin types. The cream is made with comfrey leaf, which is known to be great for hydration.

Face Masks are my favorite skincare products, and best part is there’s so many for EVERY skin type. Shea Moisture’s Hydrating Mud Mask is a personal favorite, along with Mini Pore Waterclay Mask by Laneige. The Mud Mask is made with Shea butter, which is great from dry, dull skin. The Waterclay mask is a gel-clay that works for all skin types.

Those are my top 6 skin care picks for this winter! These products can be used throughout the entire year, but a little extra hydration during the cold months is always good.
