The winter can be a rough time for your skin… literally. You probably try to do the best that you can to keep your skin looking and feeling smooth throughout the freezing cold months but it is easier said than done.

The best time to moisturize is right after you get out of the shower because that is when your skin is the most absorbent but during the winter, I am so cold when I get out that I can hardly wait to grab onto my towel, dry off, and get my clothes on let alone have the patience to put lotion on.

Trust me, I get it, the struggle is real. But you know what else is real? Your dry, flaky skin… and that ain’t cute.

You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on expensive serums and creams in order to get the hydrated, soft skin you desire either.

Here are some approved and affordable moisturizing products to help protect and prevent painful, dry skin on your face, lips, body, and hands this winter.

Face

1.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Moisturizing Gel
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Moisturizing Gel $14.99

This is my favorite new product this winter. Massage this lotion into your face and you will be amazed at how soft and dewy your skin is looking and feeling. It absorbs quickly like a gel but delivers moisture like a thick lotion would. It also contains hyaluronic acid, which acts as a sponge for dry skin cells, moisturizing with up to 1,000 times its weight in water.

There is also a more concentrated serum version of this product that I would recommend as well.

2.

100% Natural Jojoba Oil Serum
100% Natural Jojoba Oil Serum $8.00

Jojoba oil is a great way to keep your skin glowing throughout the winter months. It has powerful antioxidants, vitamins A, D, & E, and is also a natural source of Omega 6 & 9 fatty acids. It is frequently referred to as “nature’s moisturizer” because it mimics the natural oils that our bodies make.

3.

Glossier-Moisturizing-Moon-Mask-2
Moisturizing Moon Mask $22.00

I am obsessed with Glossier’s skincare line. This moon mask is a brightening, creamy formula that contains almond milk, plant-based squalane, and hyaluronic acid to deliver visibly plump, hydrated skin. It also contains licorice root and lemon fruit that work to brighten and correct complexion, while honey and aloe act as soothing agents.

4.

Hydrating Water Sheet Mask
Hydrating Water Sheet Mask $3.00

If you are really in need of a hydration boost, this mask is a great way to get it. The paper sheet mask hydrates and nourishes your face for glowing, healthy-looking skin. It contains purified water, aloe, and hyaluronic acid.

Lips

5.

Maybelline® Baby Lips® Moisturizing Lip Balm
Maybelline® Baby Lips® Moisturizing Lip Balm $2.99

I swear by Baby Lips. This stuff is the best. It keeps your lips moisturized for up to 8 hours and although this one is clear, it comes in some tinted colors as well. It also has SPF 20, which is great because it keeps your lips protected and looking smooth.

6.

Aquaphor Healing Ointment Tube
Aquaphor Healing Ointment Tube $4.99

You can honestly use Aquaphor wherever you have dry, cracked skin but this is not a lotion, it is a thick moisturizing ointment that will soothe your skin or lips in no time. It is fragrance-free and perfect for any and all skin types.

7.

Classic Lip Balm Medicated SPF 15 - Cherry
Classic Lip Balm Medicated SPF 15 – Cherry $1.50

Carmex is just a classic medicated lip balm that never disappoints. It will provide some pain relief if your lips are hurting from being cracked. It also lasts a long time!

Body

8.

SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Lotion
SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Lotion $9.99

African Black Soap is an amazing ingredient that will cleanse, hydrate, and calm problem skin. This moisturizer will leave your skin feeling soft and refreshed with organic shea butter, oats, and aloe. It also helps relieve symptoms of eczema or psoriasis.

9.

Bio-Oil Specialist Skincare
Bio-Oil Specialist Skincare $10.99

Bio Oil has an amazing ingredient called Pur-Cellin Oil that makes the product easy for your skin to absorb. This is not only an incredibly moisturizing oil but it will also help minimize the appearance of imperfections, stretch marks, scars, and uneven skin tone.

10.

Eucerin Eczema Relief Body Crème
Eucerin Eczema Relief Body Crème $8.49

This is a classic skincare brand that you can count on. The oatmeal and ceramide-3 enriched moisturizer can be used daily to fortify dry, itchy skin. It can also help to improve symptoms of eczema. This is something you can guarantee to keep your skin feeling soft all day long.

Hands

11.

SUNDARI LOTUS HAND OIL
SUNDARI LOTUS HAND OIL $10.00

Moisturizing your hands can be tricky because you put lotion on your hands and then have a hard time doing or handling anything with your hands until it completely dries. If the moisturizeris thick or heavy, often times it won’t ever fully dry and you will end up leaving remnants on your clothes and furniture.

This hand oil is the best solution for this problem. It is fast drying and has a roll-on applicator to make it simple to use and if you don’t want to get any on the palms of your hands you don’t have to. It is made with lotus, lavender, and coconut so it smells divine. It is perfect to throw in your purse and apply throughout the day to keep your hands feeling and looking smooth.

12.

Age-Defying+ Hand Mask
Age-Defying+ Hand Mask $9.50

If your hands are really feeling rough and dry, a mask might be just what you need. This hand mask is a great solution for dryness and also helps correct dark spots and signs of aging. Leave the creamy oil-serum on for a few minutes and you’ll be pleased to find hydrated, soft, smooth hands after.

13.

Yes To Coconut Hydrate & Restore Protecting Hand & Cuticle Cream
Yes To Coconut Hydrate & Restore Protecting Hand & Cuticle Cream $4.93

I love every product I have tried of this brand and this moisturizer is no exception.  It is a hand and cuticle cream that will help to smooth and restore dry, cracked, and chapped skin. It is also great because it is a non-greasy hand moisturizer. It also won Allure’s Best of Beauty Award in 2016.

What is your go-to moisturizing product to get you through the winter?
