Winter is one of our favorite seasons for a number of reasons: winter break, footie jammies and ALL OF THE FOOD are just some of the reasons we can think of. One of the things we don’t like about winter? The weather. We’re not talking “catch snowflakes on your tongue” weather. More like “dry, cracked skin and brittle hair” type of winter weather. Thankfully, we have our handy dandy moisturizers to keep our beauty regimen on point. Check out our list of super powerful moisturizers to get you through the winter weather blues.

1. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula
Infused with coconut oil, this is one of the most effective body moisturizers out there. It’s incredibly oily and moisture-packed formula might be a bit much for everyday-use in the summertime, but is perfect for fighting against ashy, skin-cracking, drying winter weather.

2. Clinique Superdefense Daily Defense Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20
This facial moisturizer is absolute perfection for all skin types. It combats the harsh weathers and makes your skin feel like a cloud. The SPF is also incredibly important. Just because it’s cold outside, doesn’t mean the sun’s UV rays don’t stop damaging your skin (or at least what’s showing).
3. Honest Beauty Even Brighter Everyday Moisturizer
If you have dark spots or redness that causes you to over medicate your skin, you might be left with dryness and flakiness. Honest Beauty uses all-natural products to help combat spots, dryness and even redness to keep you feeling fresh, young and hydrated.
4. The Body Shop Seaweed Oil Control Day Cream
Common oily-skin mishap: thinking you don’t need any moisturizer (due to the oils on your skin) and under nourishing your skin. Your skin actually needs to be moisturized just as often and this cream does wonders to soften your face. Plus, it even helps to reduce oil on your face!
5. Olay Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid Lotion
Those with acne-prone skin often face the dilemma of having to choose between dry, yet blemish-free skin or moisturized yet a face full of acne. That’s usually because the facial moisturizers they choose clog their pores and worsen their acne while hydrating their skin. That’s why choosing this medicated, yet Honest Beauty facial moisturizer is the perfect product for those with acne.
6. Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve
Your poor hands often receive the worst of the winter force. You take such good care of your face, but often forget about your hands in the icy cold. This salve is the end-all, be-all when it comes to moisturizers and hand protection. This botanical oil-based lotion creates a glove-like barrier against the winter and protects your hands from becoming dry and cracked.
7. Jessicurl Deep Conditioning Treatment
Your face isn’t the only thing that needs protection from the weather! Your hair can become dry, brittle and break off due to the wind and cold. Not just for curly hair, Jessicurl not only adds insane softness and bounce to your hair, but deeply repairs every individual strand in as little as 30 minutes!
