This time of year, when the weather starts to cool down and the central heating goes on, is the prime time for dry skin to develop which can leave your face and other areas feeling tight, itchy and uncomfortable. Dermalogica and Decleor have got moisturising products for every skin type imaginable, so we thought we’d take a look to their best moisturisers to keep you hydrated this winter.
Believe it or not, it’s still necessary to moisturising oily skin and this moisturiser from Dermalogica actually helps to banish excess sebum and rebalance the moisture levels in oily skin, specifically for teenagers and those prone to acne. It also contains an added SPF for sun protection and can be used daily over the whole face and neck after your cleansing routine.
This 24 hour moisturiser from Decleor is the Holy Grail of moisturisers, offering long-lasting 24 hour moisture without being sticky or heavy. It’s suitable for all skin types and offers immediate relief from dry skin; in fact 85%of women noticed their skin was revitalised and softer after the first application!
One of the key factors in aging skin is the reduction of moisture, which is why it’s important to use a good medium-weight moisturiser to deeply rehydrate the skin without weighing It down. This moisturiser from Dermalogica also contains powerful ingredients to reverse hyperpigmentation and dark spots on the skin, as well as a high-strength SPF to protect you from further development of dark spots.
Men need moisture too as the winter can be really hard on skin which is being constantly shaved, so this fluid from Decleor is a real must-have in the bathroom cabinet. It contains cloves and eucalyptus to revive and re-energise tired, dry skin and also helps smooth fine lines and first expression lines.
Obviously, dry skin types are obviously the most at risk at this time of year because they’re prone to dryness even without the added factors from the changing seasons. This is Dermalogica’s most popular moisturiser and contains deep-moisturising lecithin and aloe gel to nourish the skin while extracts of mallow, cucumber and arnica to soothe and hydrate the skin. It also contains anti-oxidants to protect the skin from environmental free-radicals, making this a really hard-working product!
