Winter is, for a majority of people, a time of year in which their skin becomes rather unpleasant. Both the appearance and texture of skin, for some individuals, begin to closely resemble the Sahara desert once the winter months occur, and for this reason, I thought I would do some research and seek out the supposed ten best moisturizers for dry skin. This list comes from healthline.com, and these suggestions consist of both luxury and drugstore priced items.
- Andalou Naturals Purple Carrot + C Luminous Night Cream (intended for face)
- Nivea Soft Moisturizing Cream (intended for body)
- The Body Shop Oils of Life Revitalising Sleeping Cream (intended for face)
- Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm (intended for face)
- Eucerin Dry Skin Replenishing Cream (intended for body)
- Avene Hydrance Optimale Riche Hydrating Cream (intended for face)
- St. Ives Timeless Skin Facial Moisturizer (intended for body)
- Weleda Skin Food (intended for body)
- CeraVe Moisturizing Cream (intended for face)
- Dermasil Labs Dry Skin Treatment Original Lotion (intended for body)
I personally believe that any body product, specifically moisturizers, are entirely dependent on a perosn’s skin type and their own preferences. If you are currently aware of a particular moisturizer that works for you and your skin effectively, I would not recommend experimenting with new products.
Why fix something that isn’t broke, right?
Last winter I purchased the Wild Argan Oil Body Butter from The Body Shop, and I myself am extremely with the overall performance of this moisturizer. I apply it to my hands and feet prior to going to bed in the winter, and I find that it significantly helps to provide my dry skin with the moisture it is lacking when the weather turns cold. The smallest size of this body butter retails for roughly $6.00, and I believe it is undoubtedly worth its value.
