5 Top Over-the-Counter Moisturizers to Battle Winter Weather
All day long, your skin is subjected to wear and tear, and a lot of that abuse comes from the dry air around it. Healthy skin needs the right balance of moisture to stay hydrated and supple, and that means you need to be extra vigilant in caring for skin, especially during the dry months of fall and winter. These five products can help you keep your skin healthy with little effort on your part – and you can find them all at your local drug store:
Aveeno® Positively® Radiant
An effective nighttime moisturizer that doesn’t leave your skin sticking to your pillow? Yep, Aveeno®’s Positively® Radiant uses a special formulation of soy complex and vitamin B3 to restore hydration, even out skin tone and restore a healthy glow – all while you catch some Zs.
Aveeno® Positively® Ageless
Aveeno®’s Ageless line uses a natural nutrient complex found in shitake mushrooms to help battle fine lines and tiny wrinkles, and to uncover healthy, younger-looking skin that looks softer, smoother and more radiant. It’s hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic too, which means you don’t have to worry about breakouts.
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Body Emulsion
This specially formulated, creamy lotion glides over rough, dry skin, helping even problem areas stay hydrated, soft and supple and providing moisturizing protection for up to 17 hours. Plus, it’s non-greasy, so you don’t have a feeling of sticky residue left behind by some all-day products.
Eucerin® Intensive Repair Extra-Enriched Hand Crème
This rich, non-greasy hand cream absorbs quickly with no sticky, oily residue, and it includes a dose of buffered alpha hydroxyl acids to provide gentle exfoliation, leaving hands softer and smoother even after just one use. Imagine how great your hands will feel after regular applications! Be sure to protect your hands from the sun, since AHAs can make skin sun-sensitive.
Gold Bond® Ultimate Softening Foot Cream with Shea Butter
Finally, we reach the feet. Just because they’re crammed in shoes all day, that doesn’t mean they should be neglected. This special formulation of 10 moisturizers and vitamins gets rid of rough, calloused skin and adds a protective layer of moisture that helps stay hydrated for up to 24 hours.
So there you have it: A head-to-toe regimen that can help your skin look great all winter long. And for even better results, start with skin that’s been exfoliated gently and professionally to reveal a healthy, radiant surface.
