Best Hydrating Skin Care Products This Winter
Do you want to conquer the cold and glow all season long?
November and December may well be an ideal time to capture those instagrammable cosy night-in shots and the festive twinkly light celebrations, however it’s not a great time for selfies if you’re suffering from dry skin.
Central heating makes my skin dry
Going from the bitter cold wind into central heated indoor spaces cause moisture levels in the skin to plummet. This then will leave your dermis feeling dry, it may start to become irritable and uncomfortable if not addressed.

Thankfully, these negative winter weather effects on the skin and microbiome can be overcome by revamping your skincare protocol and adding in some hydrating heroes.
Winter skincare must haves
Just like the seasons, skincare also should change. We’re not saying “bin the SPFs” (because we should be applying those all year round) but we are saying “add in the ultra-hydrating moisturisers and serums to give you that radiance.”
Our SkinAddict experts have listed their ultimate hydrating must have products below. But don’t just take our word for it, these skincare saviours also happen to be nationwide best-sellers!
What products are best for my dry winter skin?
Obagi Hydrate Facial Moisturiser
Contains ingredients such as shea butter, mango butter, avocado and glycerin which help to combat dryness without clogging pores. A natural approach to ensuring your skin gains 24 hour hydration.
Clinically shown to improve the moisture content of the skin and provide hydration for up to eight hours.
Obagi Hydrate Luxe
Obagi Hydrate Luxe provides overnight, ultra-rich moisturisation and has a luxurious, balm-like texture. Nourishing Shea Butter softens and moisturises the skin while Biomimetic Peptides, which mimic naturally occurring peptides, form a barrier at the surface to capture moisture and support cell repair.
Environ Vita Complex Super Moisturiser
Environ’s Super Moisturiser is formulated with a variety of dynamic moisturisers, antioxidants and specialised emollients which help to improve the effects of the skin’s barrier function, leaving it looking and feeling revitalised, soothed and silky soft.
Medik8 B5 Intense
Hydr8 B5 is so clever as it retains water, not only from the atmosphere but also from any additional products applied after it. For a double-dose of hydration, use Hydr8 B5 and follow with your favourite moisturiser. The water-retaining hyaluronic acid in Hydr8 B5 will draw water deep into the dermis flooding the complexion with intense moisture on every level.
Dermaquest B5 Hydrating Serum
Delivers immediate long-lasting moisture that is fundamental to all skin types. Essential especially at this time of year.
This serum delivers hylaronic acid to every layer of the skin and according the DermaQuest Scientists it is the equivalent to 8 glasses of water a day for your skin…need we say anymore?
