Whether it’s dry, sensitive, or eczema-prone, this soothing lineup can help delicate skin make it through the cold weather.
With freezing dips outside and recirculated air indoors, plus minimal humidity all around, winter can push any skin type to the dry side. But with a team of hard-working formulas and essential tips in play, you can easily winter-proof your skincare routine against dry patches, cracked hands, eczema flare-ups and more.
For full-body restoration
Vaseline® Clinical Care™ Extremely Dry Skin Rescue Body Lotion makes short work of stubborn dry patches. Clinically proven to heal skin from the first use, a trio of restorative ingredients work together to lock in moisture that helps transform skin’s barrier in just five days. It’s also unscented, so sensitive types can get on the fast-track to soft skin, too.
TIP: Avoid a hot shower or bath, high temps can strip skin’s protective barrier.
For distressed hands
Hand washing, sanitizer use and exposure to cold weather can put hands in a fragile state. But an application of O’Keeffe’s® Working Hands® acts like an invisible pair of protective gloves that heals, relieves and repairs extremely dry and cracked hands.
TIP: Applying cream to clean damp hands traps in additional moisture.
For eczema relief
Daily hydration is vital for treating eczema, but not all formulas are created equally. Inspired by first-hand experience with the inflammatory skin condition, The Beauty of Eczema™ Moisturizing Cream is a careful blend of mango seed and shea butters, Omegas 3 & 6, soothing oat lipids, plus a prebiotic ingredient that comforts and strengthens a fragile barrier.
TIP: A cold compress can help alleviate an itchy flare up.
For an overnight quench
Did you know skin loses moisture while you sleep? Skip waking up to a dry texture (and the fine lines that come with it) by incorporating RoC Multi Correxion Hydrate + Plump Serum Capsules into your nighttime routine. Each biodegradable capsule contains a dose of hyaluronic acid, which draws moisture to skin’s surface for a plumping effect you’ll notice when you rise.
TIP: Put a dehumidifier in your bedroom to enhance moist air.
For dewy radiance
Olay Regenerist Vitamin C24+Peptide Hydrating Moisturizer delivers the ideal glow-up for anyone with dry and dull skin. Fuelled by vitamin C, a verified radiance booster, it blends nourishing vitamin B3 and reparative peptides with the gentle exfoliating power of lactic acid to improve the look of an uneven tone and do away with dead skin cells.
TIP: Sun exposure contributes to dry, dull skin — be sure to use SPF year round.
For all-over hydration
Since recently trending on social media, the best-selling formula in CeraVe Moisturizing Cream has found a whole new audience. Developed by derms to be simple yet effective, the rich, non-greasy cream uses three essential ceramides and hyaluronic acid to moisturize and restore dry skin with all-day hydration.
TIP: Chapped lips? Use a light layer as a moisturizing primer and seal it in with lip balm.
