With winter and the cold weather it brings in full effect, many of us will start to notice our skin getting drier. And while we hate to admit it, many of us will have to change our skincare routine in order to match the way our skin reacts to the changes in the environment and weather.
For some people, their skin gets oily in the summer and dry in the winter, as a result of that, different skincare products do different things to your skin. So when the weather starts to get colder, our skincare products have to become more hydrating. This means more moisturizers, more hyaluronic acids, and more milky, sensitive cleansers. And because we know picking out a new skincare routine can be a bit overwhelming, we created this list to help you out.
So here are 35 skincare products that will help combat dry skin.

According to Sephora, this LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask is a “winter lifesaver” and a must for your skincare routine.

And it can be used on all skin types!

It’s not a secret that the cold months of winter leave all skin types feeling tight, dry, and often flaky. And according to Sephora, a product that can help leave your skin feeling moisturized and smooth is this JOSIE MARAN 100-percent Pure Argan Oil. It’s great for dry, oily, and sensitive skin and also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also comes in multiple different sizes.

Another great hydrating cleanser is this one by CeraVe. This Hydrating Facial Cleanser removes face makeup, dirt, and excess oil, while also providing 24-hours of hydration without leaving you feeling greasy.

The best part about CeraVe’s Moisturizing Cream is that you can use it on your whole body, including your face.

And it’s one of my favorite parts of my own skincare routine.

This Hydrating B5 Gel by Skinceuticals is a moisture-enhancing serum that is packed with hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5.
