For me, cold weather means dry skin. For me, I know my skin needs extra moisturizing when I notice my dry legs, dull face, and cracked heels. I have to say, moisturizing isn't a part of my regimen that I particularly enjoy-- I don't really like that sticky feeling after applying lotion.
But! Here are some drugstore moisturizers I found to be very helpful (and cheap too)!
For the body:
1. Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. This is recommended by dermatologists for people with dry, sensitive skin. It doesn't clog pores, and is great for daily use because it's fragrance free! (For girls, it won't clash with your other fragrances, and men, you won't end up smelling like flowers.) My friends with eczema swear by this product!
2. Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion. I grew up using this lotion-- it's great especially in the winter, because it's thick, and stays on, but isn't sticky. This lotion is fragrance-free as well.
For the face:
3. Facial Moisturizer w SPF Eucerine. I've always read good reviews, but I have yet to try it-. With the SPF, it protects your skin, while moisturizing your face. It's a 2-in-1!
4. Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer w SPF 15. This is for skin to relieve redness, dry, and irritated skin. It's great for daily use, and is a very light formula that you can apply under your makeup
5. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. Okay, so you can't find this one at the drugstores, but it's definitely not a too high-end product. With 10 extra dollars you can purchase this if you're like me, and deal with oiliness around the t-zone: it is oil-free, and feels light on the skin. It doesn't leave the skin too greasy and reduces shine. I highly recommend this!
What are some moisturizers you use/recommend? Does your skin get noticeably drier in the cold?
