When outside turns freezing, my eczema comes out to play in full force. I get it mainly on my arm and leg joints and it’s super uncomfortable, especially when it’s irritated and itchy. That’s why this Itch Relief Moisturizing Lotion has always been (and will always be) my go-to. It’s soothing, contains three types of ceramides and actually works to tame itchiness and eradicate the temptation to scratch.
When it comes to wintertime, my face is just as dehydrated as my body. That’s why I have to opt for a really soothing moisturizer full of potent, hydrating ingredients. I’ve been loving the Banana Soufflé because it helps tame the appearance of redness and dryness with magnesium, banana and centella asiatica, a super powerful combo.

While my skin is usually pretty normal, like most in the winter I tend to get very dry — especially around my mouth and nose. That’s when I layer on all of the moisturizing products I can find and top it off with a thick face cream, like the Emollience by SkinCeuticals. It’s super rich without feeling heavy and greasy, and leaves my skin thoroughly nourished.

This recovery cream is exactly what my very dry skin needs during the winter — intense recovery. It’s a luscious balm that helps to repair and helps correct the appearance of skin damage while offering incredible hydrating benefits. It’s a glass of water my skin needs throughout the day and night and doesn’t leave behind a greasy feel.

I love using this mask during the winter as a glowy pick-me-up. Even though it’s technically a mask, I like layering it on as a day-long moisturizer. It looks amazing under makeup, doubles as a primer and gives an insane dewy radiance. The product glides on to the skin and instantly takes away dryness, itchiness and rough texture. It’s my secret weapon for combating ashy, winter skin.

If you’re a fan of the Kiehl’s traditional Creme de Corps, you’ll love its Soy Milk & Honey version for winter. It’s so soothing and absorbs quickly into the skin, so you don’t feel any heaviness or a greasy residue. The jojoba oil and shea butter are incredibly moisturizing, so I know I’m getting the hydration I need in the super cold months. Highly recommend.
