This blog post is being written on the fly because I’m sitting here realizing the cold January weather is taking a toll on my skin. However, I have recently picked up three products that are ULTRA moisturizing and are MUST HAVES for anyone who is feeling that dry, tight skin feeling, too. These 3 winter skincare products you need for boosted moisture will help your face, your body and your tootsies (feet)! BONUS: they’re all cleaner beauty!
For reference, at the time of this blog post, it is 16 degrees F (real feel)… and we are a couple days away from what will likely be the biggest snow storm near my part of NJ that has happened in the last four years.
So… IT’S COLD.
We have humidifiers in all of our bedrooms and we all still wake up with super dry sinuses and everyone’s skin is so tight.
That’s what we’re working with here. That’s your reference point.
Let’s start from HEAD TO TOE:
I’ve been a fan of Biossance’s Squalane Oil for months now. It’s been my go-to moisturizer both AM and PM off and on. Squalane Oil is so good for sensitive, reactive, acne prone skin. In fact, it’s the ONLY facial oil I have been able to use consistently that doesn’t cause congestion.
But at my most recent facial, even my aesthetician was like, “Yes, you may need to add a thicker cream at night.”
I immediately checked out Biossance’s offerings because they’re super clean and I trust their Squalane science. This Squalane + Omega Moisturizer is VERY rich… very thick… and a little goes a long way. It seems to absorb quickly – doesn’t leave a greasy feel – but makes the skin feel very hydrated. Hard to explain.
The texture is almost like a body butter – but for your face? It quickly absorbs but leaves that same deep level of moisture.
I only use this before bed at night and mix in a little of the Biossance oil, too.
This body butter is BRAND NEW. Like, just launched a week ago. This formula is cleaner and totally fragrance free… and created with those who have extremely dry skin in mind, like those with Eczema.
A luxurious blend of argan oil and colloidal oatmeal, the texture of this formula immediately drew me in. It’s like creamy gelato!
I love that it’s fragrance free so I can even use it on my little one (who is also super dry)! But you’ll see and feel an immediate difference in your skin on your body after using this formula. I even look and feel hydrated 24 hrs later.
Not normally a daily body lotion/body cream type of person, I haven’t been able to NOT use this after my night time shower. 10/10 love for everyone in your family.
This is said to be a heel balm, but this will do magic on your feet if they’re dry and cracked.
I have been applying this a couple times a week (I’ll be honest… usually Friday and Saturday night) before bed and every time I use it, my feet get softer.
This balm is very creamy and chock full of hydrating oils and waxes to seal in all the goodness. I’ll pull on a cozy pair of socks after applying so it makes it super mess-free, too.
I’m a HUGE fan of all things Olive and June, so if your feet definitely need some TLC, highly recommend their pedi set too because you’ll get the callus scrubber, foot serum and eight other pedicure must haves for 20% off with my code STEFFANIEE20! Their clean polish formula is exactly like OPI or Essie… but better, because they’re clean and last WAY longer on the nails.
TIP: use that scrubber the night before, apply the foot serum + heel balm before bed… then do your pedicure the next night for the ultimate treatment pedicure at home. 🙂
Ok that wraps up my top 3 winter skincare products you need for added moisture this season!
