We’re loving the coat season but the sudden drop of temperature is harsh for the skin. Unless you’re one of the lucky humans blessed with plump, dewy skin year-round, you’re probably well-aware of the damage that winter can wreak on your pretty dermis. Below we detail the holy-grail products for winter skincare – make the swap now for added hydration, unless you want to be a member of the Withered Winter Skin Club!

Rescue and Recover

Sometime in 2013, an elephant strolled into the room and changed the beauty conversation. With innovative beauty formulas, clean ingredients and fun, neon packaging – mompreneur Tiffany Masterson – now a leading icon has disrupted the skincare industry and taken a tiny startup, Drunk Elephant to near unicorn status in less than a decade. Their Lala Retro Whipped Cream is an award-winning formula of rich omega acids, fermented green tea and other clean ingredients which instantly deliver hydrated, plump, revived skin. The formula will not leave you greasy or oily – perfect for all skin types.  

Face Cream Rich

When a trained doctor and a medical researcher designs a cosmetics line, you know your skin will get its money’s worth. Dr Barbara Strum‘s molecular cosmetics are as straightforward and clean as they come. The Face Rich Cream, a luxurious blend of nutrient-rich oils, collagen, activated compounds and a rich dose of vitamin E, shea butter among other ingredients will leave a youthful, nourished complexion. Use it daily to get the confidence of going bare skin. Highly effective for dry and mature skin.
