While we’d love to see winter come to an end, the truth is we still have to get through another month of the cold and all things involving winter skin care. To avoid any more distress, we’ve rounded up the best products for dry skin to help you finish out the season strong. Your face and body will be feeling totally hydrated. Get our top 7 skin care products for dry skin below!
If you want the most flawless skin, Clinique’s Clarifying Lotion is the best exfoliator. It’s also a key step in moisturizing. We all know the cold makes our skin dry out, flake, and do all kinds of horrendous things. This product will give you the smoothest skin if you use it before you moisturize. Exfoliate daily and you’ll never deal with dry flakes again.

Whether your skin is oily or super dry, Clinique’s Dramatically Different will give you the right amount of hydration for your poor, depleted winter skin. After applying an exfoliator, swipe this product all over your face twice a day and your skin will feel instantly refreshed. It’s also been Allure’s Readers' Choice Award Winner consecutively for the past three years. Need we say more? If your skin is oily, go for Dramatically Different in the gel formula. If your skin is dry to combination, try Dramatically Different in the regular formula.

If you’re looking to skip the SPF step in your skincare routine (because #lazy), Lancôme’s Bienfait Multi-Vital SPF 30 Cream High Potency Daily Moisturizer is the best face product for dry skin, like ever. This product contains Vitamins E, CG and B5, providing your skin with 24-hour hydration. Not only that, but it contains Broad Spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen. Even though it may be winter, it’s still SO important to protect your skin from sun damage. Trust us, you need this.

We love 2-in-1 products, obviously. Bobbi Brown’s Vitamin Enriched Face Base is a primer AND moisturizer. This rich, oil-free product hydrates and softens skin, prepping skin for flawless makeup application. What more can we ask for? This has to be the best primer, especially for these desperate cold months.

While desert-like skin is horrible, nothing is worse than dry lips. Seriously. We’re constantly looking for a balm that will soothe our poor lips and Clinique’s Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Balm is the best option. This product moisturizes your dry lips, but also provides a pop of color. Perfect for when you’re on the go!

Keeping your face hydrated is important, but you cannot forget about the rest of your body! Kiehl’s Creme de Corps is the best lotion to soothe even the driest, flakiest skin. Kiehl’s products are made with the best and most natural ingredients so obvs it’s amazing. After using this lotion daily, you’ll see and feel a huge difference. No more itchy skin (TG)!

Of course, the cold weather couldn’t do enough damage to our skin already (the struggle never ends), it has to dry out our cuticles too. Dry cuticles make us feel like our lives are falling apart just as much as chipped nail polish does. Butter London’s Quick Fix Moisturizing Cuticle Balm is the best for this struggle because it conditions and moisturizes, but without the typical greasy formula.
