Winter Essentials: Top Moisturizers Per Skin Type

Oh Baby, It's Freezing Cold Outside! However, meteorologists say that Winter 2021 has been fairly uneventful so far. The recorded temperatures are what they describe as a "typical La Niña winter" so far and we're thankful for that. But hey, apparently in some parts of the US boiling water can flash freeze and frost bite takes 30 minutes to set in. Fun times!

As we all know, along with the cold weather comes all sorts of skin inconveniences such as dryness, itchiness, irritation and more. Therefore, it's very important to be winter-ready for the worst of conditions to make sure your skin has what it needs to protect itself.

To better help you with that, we've compiled a list of our top picks based on skin type and/or skin concern.

Take a look below!

For Wrinkles

Loreal Revitalift Cicacream Skin Repair Anti-Aging Cream

  • Anti-aging moisturizing cream
  • Repairs damaged skin
  • Visible results within 2 weeks

As you might already know, our skin gets wrinkled because it becomes drier and has less elasticity as we age. This is why it’s important to use products early in life that boost the skin’s moisture levels.

The L’Oreal Revitalift Cicacream is a potent moisturizer that contains pro-retinol, which is a much more stabilized form of retinol. Retinol is often used in anti-aging creams because it’s an ingredient that helps remove dead skin cells to allow new ones to form.

However, what really makes this cream special is the combination of Pro-Retinol with Centella Asiatica, also known as Gotu Kola or Asian Pennywort. Gotu Kola is a medicinal herb with antioxidant properties that speeds up the skin’s healing process and cell production.


For Normal Skin

Milani Prep + Soothe Camellia Face Oil

  • Moisturizing oil for face, hair and body
  • Soothes and adds luminosity
  • Can be combined with other products

When it comes to moisturizing the skin, there’s never too much of it. All skin types need to moisturize in some way or another. But of course, oily skin types might need to do it less than combination or normal skin types, but it’s still necessary regardless.

The Milani Prep + Soothe Face Oil delivers just the right amount of everything you need to stay hydrated. The formula is packed with a ton of natural moisturizing and antioxidant ingredients that repair, moisturize, and protect your skin, and provide a healthy glow. You can use this oil on your hair, your face, your body -- anywhere except your eyeballs, really.

It’s the perfect product for those that need less moisturizer than others or simply want to add a little extra to the current creams they use. Since this oil can be combined with other products you can use it to boost their moisturizing efficacy. Additionally, this oil features a unique push button dropper that makes it super easy to pump just what you need, so if you have combination skin with dry spots you can target those areas.


For Sensitive Skin

Yes To Cotton Comforting Facial Moisturizer

  • Moisturizer for sensitive skin
  • Prevents and soothes irritation
  • Perfect size to carry around

As mentioned earlier, there’s moisturizers for all types of skin concerns. The Yes To Cotton Moisturizer is a soothing product designed for ultra sensitive skin or those prone to allergic reactions to certain ingredients. The organic blend has cotton extract and other natural ingredients that deliver the hydration you need and prevent skin irritation.

Cotton, in any form (seed, oil, milk, or protein), has soothing properties that heal the skin and leave it feeling soft and moisture-rich. It is also naturally hypoallergenic which is why it’s a preferred ingredient in products formulated for sensitive skin.

The convenient size of this moisturizer pump makes it easy to carry around and use anytime you need.


For Oily Skin

Erno Laszlo Conditioning Preparation

  • Oil-control moisturizing lotion
  • Treats and prevents breakouts
  • Exfoliates and cleanses

Oily skin types produce so much moisture naturally that they don’t actually need to moisturize. But under extreme weather conditions, you might feel your skin needs a little help protecting itself -- that’s where this lightweight moisturizer comes in. It’s important to choose moisturizers that won’t clog your pores or increase your oil secretion.

The Erno Laszlo Conditioning Preparation is a product especially formulated for acne-prone, oily skin. It’s basically an oil-control lotion that exfoliates the skin and provides just the right amount of moisture boost.

Use this lotion to cleanse your skin every morning and provide it with the extra protection it needs against the winter breeze. 


For Dry Skin

Borghese Hydrology ReSurface Refining Clay Scrub

  • Hydrating clay scrub
  • Provides extreme hydration
  • Absorbs impurities

Dry Skin types know they can’t go anywhere without a good moisturizer. It’s important to have one on the go, but it’s also important to give your skin in-depth hydration from time to time.

The Borghese Hydrology Clay Scrub is an exfoliator with a potent fusion of hydrating ingredients such as the IQ3 complex, which supercharges your skin with moisture and boosts skin cell production. The clay absorbs all impurities and returns luminosity to your skin complexion.

Use it to cleanse your skin every morning and/or evening to boost the efficacy of your daily moisturizer.


For Dry and Combination Skin

Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Skincare Energizing Moisture Lotion

  • Lightweight moisturizing lotion
  • Green tea extract and Vitamin E
  • Leaves skin fresh and supple

Now that you’ve cleansed your skin with the Borghese clay scrub is time to apply moisturizer. And with the Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Lotion you’ll be all set.

This lotion is a dry skin type dream. Its powerful green tea moisture complex targets all areas to provide instant hydration and a shield against free radicals. It’s fast-absorbing and lightweight, which makes it perfect for combination skin types as well.

This Elizabeth Arden lotion will give your skin everything it needs to produce more skin cells, remain fresh-looking all day, and be prepared for any weather condition. And as an added bonus, it smells great!
