10 Jun Winter Skin Saviors

In case you haven’t noticed, Winter is here. The cold air and daily hot showers can wreak havoc on your skin, leaving you feeling lackluster and dreaming of tropical beaches from where you’d rather be. Winter layering doesn’t only apply to your wardrobe, but is an essential aspect of your cold weather skincare routine. Dehydration is one of the unavoidable perils of this time of year and dull, flaky skin is generally the biggest consequence. Thankfully, skincare geniuses have come to the rescue with hardworking products to help you handle winter.

The following products will keep your skin hydrated and happy over the coming months.


Ultraceuticals Ultra B2 Hydrating Serum ($85)

Ever since the temperature nosedived I have sworn by this serum. Vitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid work to restore moisture loss and keep skin looking plump and healthy. Vitamin B3 helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, maintaining a youthful appearance and alleviating dehydration.


Neutrogena Hydro Boost Serum ($27.99)

If your skin is dehydrated but you’re worried that applying extra moisture will break you out, this serum is the one for you. The Hydro Boost Serum addresses dryness by absorbing moisture from the air and releasing it into the skin over time. It’s oil free, non-comedogenic and alcohol-free, so it shouldn’t clog pores or aggravate your skin.


Clinique Moisture Surge Melting Mask Balm ($60)

This multi-tasking wonder can be applied as a 10 minute or overnight mask, an all-over face treatment, or applied as a spot treatment to dry areas during the day. It’s a balm texture, which melts into the skin restoring comfort and nourishing your complexion. I recommend keeping this in your handbag during the colder months. If you’re going away for the weekend, this is a fantastic product to take with you in case of skin emergencies.


Dior Hydralife Jelly Sleeping Mask ($135)

Aside from the enjoyment of applying a jelly-water texture to your skin, the Hydralife Jelly Sleeping Mask works whilst you’re busy sleeping, allowing 8 hours of continuously infused hydration. Expect to wake up with smooth, supple and plump-looking skin.


Origins Dr. Weil Dark Spot Correcting Night Mask ($83)

If your skin is looking a bit blah, a mask that aims to brighten the complexion is just what the doctor (Dr. Weil) ordered. This mask is enriched with brightening ingredients including Vitamin C to help you get your glow back.
