Winter is officially here and that means it may be time for a new moisturizer. The cool weather can leave skin feeling sensitized, while the use of heaters can leave your skin dry, causing it to feel parched and itchy. Feeling skin discomfort can be common this during this time of the year, especially if you live in an area that snows. If you've been thinking of updating your beauty regimen, then check out some of our favorite moisturizers to soothe dry skin.
As a dedicated Dr. Perricone skincare user, I find that all of the moisturizers in the line are nourishing, however, the one I recommend the most this time of the year is Deep Moisture Therapy. Anyone with dry, flaky skin will appreciate the antioxidants and nutrients this moisturizer has to offer. Tocotrienols (potent form of Vitamin E), Vitamin C Ester and a mix of Borage Seed, Coconut and Palm Oils help to instantly relieve skin, leaving it soft and supple with a velvety finish.
Dermalogica's Age Smart Super Rich Repair also relieves dry skin with moisturizing and healing ingredients like Jojoba Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Evening Primrose Oil and Collodial Oatmeal. A great nighttime moisturizer, this heavy duty cream can also be used as a protective salve before going out in less than pleasant weather conditions. A customer favorite, this moisturizer is a must-try.
Anyone looking for a more natural alternative will appreciate Tata Harper's Repairative Moisturizer. This richformula leaves skin feeling silky and looking dewy with Biocompatible Hyaluronic Acid, Safflower Olesomes and Raw Honey preservatives. These key ingredients work to deliver and preserve hydration in the skin so that it never feels dry and uncomfortable.
For those who don't mind splurging, Rodial's Bee Venom Moisturizer is a luxurious experience. Unique plant stem cells help improve skin tone and elasticity, while Hyaluronic Acid provides deep hydration and moisturization. Shea Butter makes this moisturizer extra rich, but it won't leave your skin feeling sticky. If you're concerned with fine lines and wrinkles, Cyclopeptide-5 and Juvinity help keep your skin smoothed and youthfully plumped.
These are just a few of the many amazing moisturizers Planet Beauty carries to soothe your itchy winter skin. Stop by your local shop and ask for a sample. Your perfect moisturizer awaits.
