Winter Skincare for Dry Skin

Even though it’s March, it’s still about 18 degrees on a daily basis here in New Jersey so I still find myself considering it winter. I don’t know about you, but my skin gets actually bone dry in the winter- picture dry, flaky, red skin on a daily basis (I didn’t say it’d be a pretty picture). Having dry skin in the winter time is the actual worst, but through a long process of trial and error I have found some holy grail products that make the winter a little bit more bearable on my skin.

Aveeno Stress Relieving Moisturizing Body Lotion

Aveeno products are some of the best when it comes to sensitive skin, and in the winter, they’re my go to for body lotion. I love the stress relief version because it smells like lavender and makes me feel like I’m kinda sorta maybe at a spa (?) and not just in my bathroom. This is also great because I refuse to take anything less than a scalding hot shower so my skin definitely needs some TLC after basically burning it off.

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid Serum

If you have dry skin, or just want your skin to have a little bit more bounce and suppleness, give this serum a try. At under $7, it’s a perfect supplement to any existing skincare routine you have, or a good place to start if you don’t want to commit to buying that expensive serum you saw Kim Kardashian use. I also love using this a primer in the morning before I put on my makeup to provide the perfect base to smooth over any dry patches I may.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream

I love using this moisturizer during any time of the year, but during the winter is my favorite. It’s so lightweight yet extremely moisturizing that it sinks right into your skin immediately. No greasy feel, no weird overpowering fragrance, just a simple moisturizer that gets the job done. Also, another great alternative for a two-in-one primer/moisturizer before you put on your makeup.

Laneige Lavender Sleeping Mask

Soooo I only discovered this product a little over a month ago but it is a MUST have. I repeat, a must have. Everyone needs this mask in their life. It smells amazing, it feels like a canvas of silk on your skin, and a little goes a long way so you’ll definitely get your money’s worth. I put this mask on before I go to sleep, give it approximately 5 seconds to sink into my skin and then done. It’s so easy to use, and when you wake up in the morning your skin will look and feel rejuvenated and softer than it has in months.
