Fall and Winter certainly have their charms – russet and gold leaves, warm, cozy fires and gorgeous coats and boots – yeah! But your dear skin needs extra protection from dryness during cold months of the year. There are several reasons for this – cold air carries less moisture, indoor heating may feel delicious, but saps moisture from the air too. Long, hot baths and showers can also seem like a fabulous reward after a long day but can strip skin of natural oils.
Keep it all in balance with extra moisture
To prevent your skin getting dry in the first place, and getting out of ‘balance’, it’s time to nourish every part of your body with gorgeous, moisturizing and protective products that will keep it silky soft and youthful, no matter what’s happening at the weather station!
We’ve rounded up some super effective and luxurious moisturizing products here for you to try, and enjoy their nourishing goodness!
1. Melvita Rose+ Face Care Oil
Face oils are so effective because they penetrate quickly and deeply into the skin’s layers. The Melvita Rose+ Face Care Oil hydrates skin with highly revitalizing rose hip oil and Neolastine helps visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The undeniably uplifting rose perfume is exquisite, and the finish is non greasy and light, no heavy oiliness at all. With regular use, skin is normalized and hydrated – and oh so very smooth and silky!
2. THREE Flawless Ethereal Fluid Foundation SPF36 / PA+++
Winter make up shouldn’t look cakey and heavy, and does its part in the hydration process. I absolutely adore a translucent, radiant look with a foundation, so this one is perfect. It creates really radiant luster on the skin, and uses light to achieve perfect coverage, for long-lasting effects that you can really feel. What’s more, the skincare effects of the botanical oils used in its formulation, including Inca Oil, Camellia Oil, Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Shea Butter and Beeswax, enhance the natural beauty and glow of your skin. Beautiful!
3. Chanel Hydra Beauty Lotion (Moist)
This is the one for the Chanel girls! And especially if you do not enjoy heavy creams, Chanel Hydra Beauty Lotion (Moist) creates hydration and protection with a light, gel-like lotion with a sensual, fresh and silky texture, and delicate fragrance with fruity notes and a light floral heart. The key to the product effectiveness is a magnetic water complex that captures and retains water molecules for intense and lasting epidermal hydration. Clever huh? Also it contains Blue Ginger – a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from free radicals and reinforces our cellular self-defense system.
4. Avène Hydrance Intense Rehydrating Serum
Serums are great in the cold because of their concentrated level of ingredients – delivering maximum hydration and protection in small amounts of product. Avène Hydrance Intense Rehydrating Serum packs a 24-hour restoration and replenishment punch in a unique, oil-free serum enriched with a high concentration of soothing and calming Avène Thermal Spring Water, providing an instant soothing sensation and powerful antioxidant protection. A really great product for very dehydrated sensitive skin types.
5. Sisley White Restorative Body Cream
The body needs some extra attention too to stop skin from drying and flaking. Sisley White Restorative Body Cream strengthens the barrier function to fight against water loss and maintain the skin’s natural moisture balance. Rich in essential fatty acids, it is combined with Andiroba oil, Allantoin and Phytosqualane, with emollient and soothing properties to nourish and bring comfort to the skin.
