The skin on your face and body can easily become dry and irritated in the cold winter weather. Dry and sensitive skin isn’t fun any time of the year, but the winter chill intensifies the problem. We’ve found the best skin care and beauty products to soothe your sensitive winter skin throughout the colder months. Gently Cleanse When your winter skin is dehydrated and flaking, the last thing you want to do is strip your skin of its natural oils. This winter, try gently cleansing with a moisturizing product specifically made for dry, sensitive skin. The Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser is a classic beauty product that removes makeup and excess dirt with a mild cleanser. The Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm is a modern take on the cream cleanser. The balm features a hydrating blend of oils that leave your skin feeling silky and smooth. The First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser, Cetaphil Skin Cleanser, and Eucerin Gentle Hydrating Cleanser are dermatologist-recommended cleansers that remove oil, dirt and makeup without any irritation. All three cleansers feature a gentle formula that won’t strip your winter skin of vital oils. Replenish Moisture In the winter, it’s incredibly important to use a deeply hydrating moisturizer each morning and evening. Both the Mario Badescu Chamomile Night Cream and Aveeno Ultra-Calming Moisturizer give your winter skin a boost of moisture that will soothe dry, flaky skin. If you experience patches of dry skin on your face and body, try using the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream as a spot treatment. Its fragrance-free, moisturizing formula is safe to use on your face, body and lips. If you find that your skin still feels dry and irritated, you can add a few drops of the Josie Maran Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment or the Bare Minerals Mineralixirs 5-Oil Blend to your cleanser or moisturizer. Both products are great for transforming any product into a moisturizing formula. The First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask can also be used once a week to provide a concentrated dose of moisture to your winter skin. Soothe Dry Skin Despite being covered in thick, warm garments, the skin on your body is still affected by the cold weather. Properly moisturizing your body can prevent painful cracking winter skin and reduce sensitivity. You can amp up your normal moisturizing routine by replacing your regular body lotion with a thicker formula. The Body Shop Body Butter, Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil, and C. Booth 4-in-1 Multi-Action Lotion have higher levels of nourishing oils than normal lotions to completely quench your parched winter skin! Don’t forget to moisturize your hands as well. A potent hand cream, such as the Le Couvent Des Minimes Gardener’s Hand Healer, Jack Black Industrial Strength Hand Healer, or Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream will prevent cracking palms and peeling cuticles.
