* Winter demands a different skin care routine
* Form a protective barrier to save your skin from dry hair and cold weather
* Choose these cleansers, creams, body washes and more to lock in moisture
Dry air, rain, and snow during winter demand a different approach to skin care. However, figuring out which products to use this season can be time-consuming and pricey. To help out, we created a complete winter skin care routine using Neutrogena’s highly-recommended products that’ll keep your skin supple and blemish-free. Here are the products to get, and how to use them, to ensure that your face and body stay soft, warm, healthy and moisturized all season long.
1. Rainbath Shower and Bath Gel
First, wash away grime from rain, snow, and wind with this shower gel. It utilizes fresh plum to deeply cleanse the body, leaving your skin with a soft feel. The scent is light and not over-powering, and the formula works well for those with sensitive skin too.
2. Deep Clean Clay Cleanser & Mask
Next, you’ll need a great cleanser. This $9 cleanser is great because it does double duty as an occasional clay face mask. It’ll strip away any dirt, oil, and makeup at the end of the day, keeping your skin clear and healthy.
3. Hydro Boost Gel-Cream
Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost gel-cream moisturizer features hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule that keeps our skin moisturized. But during the dryness of winter, our bodies can use some outside help from moisturizer like this. Specially formulated for dry skin, this gel cream goes on smooth and silky, and penetrates in seconds.
4. Hydro Boost Body Gel Cream
After you’ve moisturized your face, give your body the same treatment with this body gel cream. It also uses hyaluronic acid to provide grease-free, lightweight hydration.
5. Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Night Cream
Before settling into bed, put on some of this multi-vitamin night cream. It’ll work while you sleep to replenish moisture and nutrients without clogging pores.
6. Fast Absorbing Hand Cream
Ensuring that your face stays fresh and clear is imperative, but during the winter, your hands need some attention too. Before bed, use this fast absorbing hand cream to avoid dry, cracking mitts.
7. Lip Moisturizer with Sunscreen
Standard drug-store lip balms won’t do the trick during the winter. Instead, use this Norwegian lip moisturizer with SPF 15 to restore chapped lips, and keep them protected. The SPF helps protect your lips from sun damage because whether you notice it or not (and even though it’s winter), the sun is still in full force.
