Tips for Keeping Your Skin Hydrated in Winter

Don’t let the cold weather get you down.  Dry skin is extremely common during the winter months when humidity levels are low. The cold, dry air evaporates the water in your skin leaving your skin feeling dry, tight and even flaky.

Below are some of our staff’s favorite moisturizers and hydrators to use during the chilly season. Real people, real results!

My favorite moisturizer is the HA5 by SkinMedica. It does a great job of hydrating the skin without making it feel oily. I was able to stop using a regular moisturizer after using this product for a few weeks. My skin looks more plump and youthful, and my crow’s feet have improved drastically with this product.

Skin Type: Combination Dry & Oily

With the climate changes of Winter, my skin often appears dry and flakey, especially around the nose. During this time, I like to add PCA Après Peel Hydrating Balm to my daily skincare routine, for an extra layer of moisture.

The dry winter weather always makes my makeup look a bit “cakey” especially around the eyes, so I never find myself without SkinMedica’s TNS Eye Repair. It is super hydrating and also contains growth peptides to help smooth out fine lines, giving the eye a more youthful appearance.

As I approach 40, my favorite moisturizer is dedicated to my skin’s aging needs. I must say that Revision’s Intellishade Anti-Aging Tinted Moisturizer with sunscreen is my everyday go-to product. Not only does it hydrate my skin, but it’s anti-aging properties along with sunscreen to protect my skin from the sun’s UV rays are a MUST for any woman! But don’t forget your lips! PCA’s Lip Peptide Therapy is my other must-have hydrating product, especially in the winter months! There is no over-the-counter product that compares to PCA’s Lip Peptide Therapy.

I absolutely love Revision’s D.E.J. Face Cream! For me this cream checks off all the necessities when I look for a moisturizer. The peptides help reduce the appearance of my crow’s feet and smile lines, it energizes my skin giving it a glow, plus there’s Vitamin C in this product giving my skin much-needed antioxidants to brighten it. I use this moisturizer year round.

I love SkinMedica’s HA5, which really helps balance my combination skin and improves my skin’s texture.  I pair that with PCA’s ReBalance because it’s really light and gives me the perfect amount of moisture to last me the entire day without making me look oily.  It creates a smooth surface on days  I wear makeup, and evens my skin’s texture for the days I skip makeup.

Assistant Manager
Skin Type: Acne-prone, oily

Finding the right moisturizer for acne-prone skin is not an easy task! A common misconception about our skin type is that since your skin is so oily, you can skip a moisturizer…Wrong! To balance your skin to help from producing more oils, is to hydrate it.  Just like other skin types, I get some drying around my nose and lower cheek areas. PCA’s Hydrating Serum is the perfect product for my skin – absorbs quickly and it conditions my skin without causing breakouts.

Skin Type: Normal

PCA’s Clearskin is my all-time favorite moisturizer! My skin feels tighter and the appearance of my fine lines are less noticeable when I use it consistently. The price is easy on the wallet at just $39 and a little bit goes a long way – my jar lasts me 6 months! So glad I found this amazing product that fits my skin’s needs on a budget.
