Eight Saints, Rhode and YSE Beauty skincare products.

When it comes to skincare, we all have our tried-and-true favorites that we reach for, regardless of season. However, when it comes to caring for your complexion during the cold winter months, you sometimes have to change things up in order for your dry, cracked skin to soak up as much moisture as possible. 

We’ve been trying out plenty of products since the temperatures dropped, and below, you’ll find a selection of our must-have hydrating winter skincare products that will help moisturize you from head to toe this season.

Eight Saints Up The Anti Night Cream, $44 (eightsaintsskincare.com)

This niacinamide cream, packed with hyaluronic acid and peptides, helps your skin retain moisture and hydrates while you sleep. It has single-handedly saved my complexion this winter, and the product has a 4.9-star review from 185 happy customers who note that it is suitable for sensitive skin and “has helped reduce fine lines and wrinkles.”

Junoco Full-Body Nectar Serum, $22 (junoco.com)

With a light floral scent and hydrating ingredients like chestnut rose fruit extract, this vegan serum is ideal for slathering on after showering. It’s super moisturizing, non-sticky and is packed with oat kernel extract, which helps to soothe the skin.

YSE Beauty Xtremely Rich Moisturizer, $65 (ysebeauty.com)

This lightweight moisturizer is like a refreshing drink of water for parched, winter skin. From model and actress Molly Sims’s brand, it’s safe for use on sensitive skin, and contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate your complexion from the very first application.

Rhode Pineapple Refresh Daily Cleanser, $28 (rhodeskin.com)

Another recent essential in my own hydrating winter skincare routine, Rhode’s new cleanser leaves skin feeling fresh and clean, unlike some washes that leave your face feeling tight and parched. It contains polyglutamic acid, which works to plump and hydrate skin while locking in moisture.

Naturium Phyto-Glow Lip Mask, $13 (naturium.com)

While I personally love slathering Aquaphor on my lips year-round for hydration, this lip mask is my new go-to. It contains shea butter, avocado oil and jojoba oil to nourish your pout, and you can use it all day long, or even apply before bedtime to let it really soak in as an overnight mask.
