Best Skin Moisturizers During The Dry Winter Season

Skin takes on a life of its own during the winter—transforming a normally hydrated, bright-looking complexion into a much duller and drier complexion. Rather than sitting around feeling guilty, we’ve decided to act on it. 

Here are fifteen ideal winter moisturizers that treat dry skin along with anti-aging and other defensive properties. Below, find the favorites and reasons for why they’re working.

Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream

The Moisturizing Skin Cream of Vanicream is non-greasy and quickly spreads, giving long term moisture to your dry skin. The gentle formula is perfect for red, sensitive, and irritated skin because there are no additives, scents, or colors. We often recommend Vanicream products in Arizona Dermatology due to their soft yet stable formulations, which are available for all kinds of skin.

Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion

Cetaphil’s Moisturizing Lotion offers long-lasting hydration with no irritation of sensitive skin, specially designed to soothe chronically dry and irregular skin. This moisturizer is light and non-greasy, allowing it to be used many times a day.

CeraVe Skin Renewing Night Cream

CeraVe’s skin renewing cream uses hyaluronic acid and pottery to refresh the appearance of dry, dull and exhausted skin for an intense burst of moisture. This hydrator can be used day and night to enhance skin elasticity and texture, despite its name.

Eucerin Moisturizing Face Lotion

Eucerin is one of many brands dermatologists strongly recommend because it is dedicated to offering quality goods at fair prices. This hydrating face lotion has an occlusive formula that helps seal the moisture of your skin. The wide-spectrum coverage of this moisturizer is SPF 30.

Aquaphor Healing Ointment

Aquaphor Curing Ointment is intended to preserve the protection of your skin. This multifunctional ointment protects the dry skin, chapped lips, cracked hands or feet, and other common skin irritations and soothes them. Aquaphor Curing Ointment can be used as an independent moisturizer or used to improve its effects on a particular moisturizer.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

Neutrogena Hydro Improve Water Gel is suitable for oily or acne-suspicious skin types with a gel-like feel and an oil-free formula. Hyaluronic acid, its main ingredient, causes the skin to explode with hydration without obstructing pores or increasing oil production.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Lotion

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Lotion is one of this original skincare brand’s most famous products. Even when the weather is severe, it provides constant moisture for dried skin by drawing water in the air toward the skin using moisturizing substances.

Clinique Moisture Surge Intense

With continuous use, Clinique’s Moisture Surge Intense skin cream rehydrates skin immediately and can rebuild its moisture barrier over time. This results in healthy skin overall and makes it less likely that dryness will return. This moisturizer has an oil-free formula and will not irritate skin prone to acne.

Biossance Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer

Biossance is the best brand of moisturizing dry skin that is non-toxic, sustainable, and scientifically verified. Each of the products comes with squalene, which comes from 100 percent plant-based, renewable sugarcane (our bodies produce their form known as squalene, but the quantity maintained in your skin lowers over time). It’s ultra-hydrating and strengthens your skin’s moisture barrier when combined with probiotics and leaves it brighter and healthier. This moisturizer also contains red algae and ginger essence to relax your skin while it’s irritating and red.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream

For so many different things, Tilbury’s Magic Cream is unbelievable. Hydration and anti-aging are first and foremost. The formula includes hyaluronic acid, rosehip, camellia oils, and vitamin E peptides to improve your skin collagen’s natural development, add resilience, and reduce wrinkles. Furthermore, it is an excellent maquillage primer that creates dewy, plump, and moisturized skin.
