It starts every winter: the itchy, tight feeling. The sandpaper-y texture. Flakes of skin pilling from your face like a sweater that’s seen too many seasons. Despite your best efforts (humidifiers, masks, more water, less wine), maintaining a supple complexion during sub-zero temperatures is always a challenge. But the solution is surprisingly simple, according to a dermatologist we interviewed: Take shorter showers, switch off your heater as much as possible, and apply a thick, heavy moisturizer often. After much trial and error, here are 14 soothing options that truly work.
The gel-cream consistency spreads evenly but feels more like a liquid once applied. Ideal for oily complexions, it absorbs almost instantly so that your skin feels softer, nourished, and not at all greasy. It is also one of the least-expensive moisturizers on this list.
Our lightweight, water-based formula is gentle, yet effective, for even sensitive skin and won’t leave your face feeling greasy or looking shiny. Extra gentle, and oil-free, it’s dermatologist-tested. Plus it contains no drying alcohol, so it won’t dry out your skin.
