Brace Yourself Against the Cold and Dry Air
Even if you’re always on top of your skincare routine, winter takes a toll. From dry weather to harsh winds—all of it can leave your skin feeling chapped and rough. Luckily, there are lots of products out there that will bring both your skin and hair back to life. Not only will these moisture-infused items make your skin feel supple, but they’ll help with anti-aging and keep any irritations you may have at bay, as well.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
There’s only one way to describe how this mask feels: decadent. It’s rich and soothing and full of good ingredients: vitamin C, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and minerals. It also smells amazing since the antioxidants are derived from their berry mix complex. Apply a generous amount and leave it on overnight to heal up any chapped lip issues you’ve been facing.

Biossance Vitamin C + Squalane Oil
This oil has been a skin savior for me for the past few months. I mix a couple of drops in with my moisturizer in the morning and it makes my skin feel supple throughout the entire day. I also put it on top of my moisturizer at night to lock in the good stuff. It has squalane which helps lock in the moisture from the rose oil and vitamin C.

Coco and Eve Hair Mask
I’ve been using this hair mask and it’s a total game changer. Put as much of this as you want in your hair and leave for at least 10 minutes. You can even work it through your hair and leave it in overnight for super soft hair in the morning. It smells absolutely amazing and contains coconut and fig extracts, shea butter and lots of nut oils.

Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment
Keep this in your bag, on your nightstand and in any other place you frequent because you’ll be immediately addicted. It’s so thick and smoothing, it stays on well and doesn’t feel oily. It also works to hydrate and remove fine lines from your lips. It contains beeswax and lots of nourishing plant oils.

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream
When you’re looking for a moisturizer, make sure to find one that contains both peptides and hyaluronic acid so that your skin is super hydrated and plumped. Grab a tub of this and slather it on after a shower or bath so that you lock in the moisture that’s already left on your skin after bathing.

DefineMe Whipped Body Polish
To get rid of the flaky skin that’s almost unavoidable in the winter, make sure you’re using a gentle exfoliant for your body. This one contains shea butter, coconut oil and cane sugar—and it whips into a nice lather when massaged into the skin. It also smells absolutely heavenly! It has notes of mandarin, black currant, jasmine and sugar.

Ouai Hair Oil
While it can seem counterintuitive to add oil to your hair, in the winter it’s a total necessity. Massage a few drops of this into your hands and then run your fingers through the length of your hair. It will revive your dead ends and keep them looking healthy. This contains lots of seed oils and smells so good you’ll want to rub it all over your entire body.
BUY IT: Sephora, $28
Drunk Elephant Glycolic Resurfacing Serum
This serum is great for adding hydration to skin that could be a little clearer. It also adds a healthy, luminous look to your cheeks. It contains glycolic, tartaric, lactic and citric acids, which work to both exfoliate those dry winter skin cells, as well as brighten so that your complexion looks amazing.
BUY IT: Sephora, $90
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
While face washes that leave your skin feeling tight and squeaky clean may feel good, they aren’t the best for you–especially during the dry winter. It’s best to switch to an oil-based face wash and this one is amazing. It will melt off your makeup and leave your face feeling clean and hydrated. It contains olive oil, rosemary leaf oil and vitamin E.

Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash
Trust me, once you integrate this body wash into your beauty regimen, you won’t be able to go back. It leaves your skin feeling super moisturized, and it’s gentle and pH balanced. It’s creamy, works into a rich lather and smells amazingly fresh.
BUY IT: Amazon, $9
Dr. Jart Foot Smoothing Mask
Just because you’re not showing off your feet in sandals doesn’t mean you should forget about them. This mask is made of foil and uses a warming thermotherapy technology that also infuses your skin with moisture. Your tootsies will feel and look super smooth and hydrated after giving them the attention they deserve!
