We have to say, as much as we miss summer, there’s something to be said about the city during the fall and winter season. That crisp air is so refreshing! That being said, as much as we adore layering, the cold weather will start to take a toll on our skin and hair very very soon – YIKESS. To help protect you from the wrath of icy temps, we put together a choice selection of awesome products to hydrate, moisturize and most importantly really lock in nutrients and vitamins! Scroll down, go on!
Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream with Active Hydramesh Technology
This is the master of moisture right here ?. This cream helps to infuse the skin with 48 hours of continuous hydration. It basically works overtime for your skin! The advanced technology helps to heal skin of any damages or dryness. This non-scented cream contains a mixture of dynamic hyaluronic acid complex, mallow, and arnica enabling the product to lock moisture into the skin. We love that this product is also gluten-free, paraben-free, and vegetarian. You can purchase this and other Dermalogica products at a variety of spas across the city, Sephora, and online.
Bobbi Brown Skin Moisture Solution No, 86 – Intense Rehydration Compound
This is a product you’re going to run to when it’s bitterly cold out and your nostrils freeze together when you breathe (yeah it’s coming!). You’re going to apply this product on severely dry spots or any itchy, cracked areas. Created with a sodium hyaluronate-infused solution that aids in bringing the skin’s natural moisture to the surface for the most skin supple. Many that have used this claim the skin is immediately more comfortable after application, not to mention instantly restoring glow and moisture quickly.

Kiehl’s – Creme De Corps
Ladies and gentlemen, if you have not tried this body lotion, you are really missing out – we mean it! This body cream is a staple for anytime of year, but obviously better used in the winter months when your skin is the most dry and in need to that moisture hit. What we like about this cream is it’s so far from being greasy, leaving no residue on your skin once absorbed. Creme De Corps has a rich consistency and helps to even texture as well as hydrate and soften the skin. Find it at your local Kiehl’s counter.
Biotherm Aqua Source Cocoon
The Aqua Source Cocoon by Biotherm is a newbie to our shelves and we are loving it! This product is a new generation formula combining the characteristics of a balm and a gel. This means that it combines the lightness of a gel and the nourishing, protective comfort of a balm. Much like the Dermalogica’s Skin Smoothing Cream, the Biotherm Aqua Source boasts 48 hours of hydration, leaving skin nourished and moisturized all damn day long! You can purchase the Aqua Source and other delicious Biotherm products, at you local Beauty Boutique and Hudson’s Bay Company.

This delicious cream is made from a mix of proteins and concentrates that work to improve the feel, firmness and texture of skin through moisture. It works on all skin types as a protein smoothie for your skin! Fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage will begin to diminish with continual use. This is one of the most perfect creams for winter, as the cold can cause fine lines and wrinkles, to deepen, dry our and even sometimes crack. We definitely recommend you pick one of these up at Sephora soon.

Briogeo has definitely made its way to the forefront of hair care in recent months and has one of the best shampoos to get rid of that ‘snowy’ scalp. The Scalp Revival Shampoo can be used on all hair types and works to detoxify, exfoliate, and soothe, returning balance to the PH levels for ultimate scalp health! The added moisture this shampoo adds to your scalp will also help to decrease dandruff and itchy scalp, plus remove any build up you may have from other products or conditioners.

Masks are so necessary on a weekly basis, but even more so in the winter. Moisturizer alone, just won’t cut it! If you haven’t tried a night mask, it’s time to hop on that train, because it’s damn luxurious! The Origins Drink-Up mask is made from a combination of avocado and apricot kernel oil plus Japanese seaweed. This mix helps to repair any dry or damaged skin areas if used once a week along with your daily skin care regimen.
