12 Moisturisers To Hydrate Your Skin This Winter
For those who haven’t realised it yet, winter is already here! Yes, it might not be the snowy-white end-of-year that we see in the movies (unless you’re buried in the mountains), but it is still relatively cold. During the chill, our skin tends to get dehydrated quickly. I know it isn’t ridiculously cold in certain cities, but sometimes even the slightest drop in temperature and humidity can effect the way your skin feels from within.
Even the drop in temperature, when exposed to an air conditioner, can be damaging to your skin. Have you ever washed your face and then suddenly felt your skin stretched around your mouth and jawline? Well, that even happens to me during the winters, and I generally have an oily complexion! Don’t think that just because you have combination or oily skin, you don’t need to use of any sort of cream or lotion — moisturising needs to be a part of your skincare regime.
What it essentially does is that it keeps your skin hydrated while creating a protective layer, thus locking in the moisture. This prevents your skin from looking dried out and dull. So this is significant for all skin types; the only difference lies in the amount of hydration each requires. Especially in cold climates, our skin tends to lose its natural hydration far quicker, leaving it chapped and pretty much parched, causing dryness and even flaking.
To avoid that, we’ve picked out the 12 of the most hydrating moisturisers for every skin type that will leave your skin feeling soft and supple through the winter.
