The Best Winter Moisturizers for All Skin Types

As the season’s change and we start experiencing colder climates (especially here in the north-east), we need to also consider switching up our skincare. Look for more emollient moisturizers for dry skin and hybrid gel creams for combination to oily skin. Here’s a list of my top hydrating products for all skin types this season


Joanna Vargas Daily Hydrating Cream – This gel/cream texture is great for all skin types and you only need a dime size amount for the entire face. Galactoarabinan, an ingredient derived from the Larch tree and a plant based collagen, plumps dehydrated skin.



Tatcha Indigo Black Sugar Body Gommage – My obsession! No harsh scrubbing with the sugar and also melts on the body and face leaving you buttery soft!



Dior Capture Totale Dreamskin Perfect Skin Cushion Broad Spectrum SPF 50 – I like to call this a complexion finisher rather than makeup. Think of this as the new “tinted moisturizer”. Lightweight, this product evens out the complexion yet feels like a moisturizer. Tapping rather than rubbing blurs imperfections without the weight and look of makeup.


Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer – Lightweight but so moisturizing for really dry skin! This moisturizer adds radiance and a glow to parched skin without feeling greasy.



Honest Beauty Even Brighter Moisturizer – With Camomile and Calendula to calm skin, this moisturizer is a staple in my kit. Suitable for dry to combination skin and over time, will balance out uneven skin tone with its Licorice extract.
