Best Moisturizers for Dry Skin

To Protect You From The Cold Season


As the weather gets colder, it also seems to get drier, making once perfectly luscious lips into a dry, cracked, peeling mess. But the cold weather doesn't just affect your lips. It can also affect your face. So how do you protect yourself from dry, peeling winter skin? As best said by Beyoncé: "The most valuable tip I’ve learned is always use a skin moisturizer." I have found seven of the best moisturizers out there for winter, all priced in between $50-$1000. 


  1. Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream (Average price =$60) 

The Lala Retro moisturizer works by allowing a barrier to support the skin as the person goes about their day. It's infused with six rare African oils.  And fermented with green tea. Which helps fight against the aging process. The moisturizing cream is lightweight but powerful, and sure to keep you hydrated this winter.



  1. Dr. Barbara Sturm Face Cream Rich (Average price =$250)

Celebrity Dr. Barbara Sturm's face cream is an anti-aging wonder you can use both day and night. The lightweight cream quickly absorbs into your skin, giving your skin that radiant glow. The dynamic duo Ingredients Skullcap and Purslane work together as an anti-aging powerhouse to keep your face from looking tired and irritated.


  1. Fresh Crème Ancienne (Average price =$148)

Fresh Crème Ancienne is a handmade cream that can be used as a day or a night moisturizer. The cream has an effect on smoothing facial wrinkles. The coolest part about this face cream, in my opinion, is that each jar is handmade in a Czech Monastery. The handmade creation ensures the sequence and dosage of the ingredients stay the same. Packing a serious hydration punch for your skin.



  1. PCA Skin HydraLuxe Intensive Hydration (Average price =$147)

PCA Skin Hydraluxe Intensive Hydration has a formula designated for improving skin fullness and giving the user a plumping sensation of the skin. The moisturizing cream is for people with dry and sensitive skin. The formula works as an anti-aging cream, and after using the cream, your skin feels smoother and softer. The Hydraluxe cream is a heavyweight solution and does not work well under foundation, meaning the moisturizer would work better as a nighttime cream.


  1. Biossance Squalane + Omega Repair Cream (Average price =$58)

The Biossance cream is a moisturizer for people with normal, combination, dry, and oily skin. The cream absorbs into the skin well does not leave behind an oily residue after using and instead leaves the skin soft and dewy. The Omega in the cream helps to retain elasticity in the skin, removing fine lines and wrinkles.



  1. Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream (Average price =$65) 

The Tidal water moisturizing cream is for people with normal, dry, and combination skin. The cream’s primary functions are to target dark spots, dryness, and wrinkles. The water cream portion makes it feel as if you are putting water on your face instead of a heavyweight cream. The lightweightedness of the cream allows the skin to breathe and not to be weighed down by a thick cream. Tidal increases hydration in the skin by 68% in about 15 minutes, and the cream lasts for 24 hours, thus making Tidal a perfect everyday face cream.


  1. Osea Advanced Protection Cream (Average price =$108)

Osea Advanced Protection Cream is a moisturizing, anti-aging, redness-reducing superhero. Osea is a cream perfect for people with dry and sensitive skin. The moisturizer works well under your foundation because there is no greasy residue left on the skin after use. The cream is also vegan and animal cruelty-free, with the plus of there being no harsh chemicals in the formula.


So these are the seven best moisturizers I found with all almost having 5-star reviews. I hope I inspired you to try some of these out for yourself so you can protect yourself from the cold, dry winter.
