The 5 Best Moisturizers For Beating The Winter Blues

Winter blues are a serious skin issue - I swear. You know, the way your skin screams "feed me" moisture and nutrients as soon as the temperatures drop? The best way to combat these so called blues are by keeping a good diet, and of course, slathering on a seriously hydrating moisturizer. And trust me, while moisturizers are the most oversaturated product on the skincare market, that's exactly what makes it so hard to find a good one. After sifting through piles and piles of creams and goos over the past few years I have found the few very best that are sure to suit every skin type and budget...while keeping that glow even when it snows!

For Oily/Dehydrated Skin - You may be asking how you can possibly have oily and dehydrated skin at the same time, but hear me out! Oily skin just produces excess oil, but it doesn't mean your skin is always well hydrated - it may mean quite the opposite, which is what's causing the overproduction of oil. Healthy skin needs balance, just like a diet. Feed your skin moisture with lightweight products that absorb quickly and easily, yet bathe your skin with moisture. Try Sunday Riley's Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream for gel-like moisture and gentle exfoliation using fruit enzymes. If you have more sensitive skin and prefer to steer clear of exfoliating acids, try Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Release, with time-released moisturizing capabilities. It feels like a tall glass of water for your skin.

For The Driest Skin - Darphin Lumiere Essentielle Illuminating Oil Gel Cream is a gel-oil cream (so good), meaning it provides the skin with some really seriously silky smooth moisture while maintaining a lighter texture. I am all for the glow it brings my skin when using this as well, and my skin stays hydrated throughout the day. As for a serious skin treat, I'll sing the praises of La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream Sheer once more. You all know how much I love this cream, and if there's any one product you're going to major league splurge on it should be this rich, decadent cream that sinks into the skin immediately. This moisturizer is just the ticket to baby soft, poreless skin that's perfectly balanced. 

For An Overnight Glow - Sometimes, you need to wake up to glowing skin, and not have to rely on layering up products before running out the door. Well, the solution is a great, moisturizing night treatment. I love Perricone MD's Multi-Action Overnight Treatment for just that purpose; it goes onto the skin like a thick frosting but manages to settle down almost immediately. It feels so nourishing almost instantly, but what's even better is the feeling of your skin when you wake up. It feels plumped, fine lines are lessened, and dry patches gone. Every girl and guy needs a tub of this in their life!
