With winter comes cold weather—and with cold weather can come dry skin. As is the case for many women and men of all ages, dry skin is just as common as holiday cheer this upcoming season. And, before you know it, your skin can be flaking and even dull-looking—and that’s anything but merry and bright. Ramp up your skin’s hydration levels and help it appear more radiant this winter by uprooting your normal skin care routine and stocking up on a few skin care products—ranging from facial cleanser to face moisturizer to charcoal mask, these are the skin care products you should try to use on dry skin in winter.

Winter Skin Care Product for Dry Skin #1: Cream Facial Cleanser

If you wash your already dry skin with a foaming or gel-based facial cleanser, you might find that your skin feels even more dry, tight, and uncomfortable after it has been cleansed. Dry skin can be exasperated if you are using a facial cleanser that strips your skin of its essential oils. When washing your face this winter, you want to remove surface oil, dirt, and grime, but you shouldn’t remove every trace of your skin’s natural moisture. Instead, look to remove surface buildup with nourishing formulas that can be more hydrating to dry skin, like a cream facial cleanser. Try the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Smoothing Cream Cleanser.

Winter Skin Care Product for Dry Skin #2: Water-Based Moisturizer

As the temperatures steadily decline, you might find that your skin’s moisture is doing that, too. To help combat that moisture loss, try using a water-based moisturizer, like the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal to Dry Skin or L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin. Whichever you choose, you can expect lightweight hydration that lasts all day long to help quench your skin’s thirst.

Winter Skin Care Product for Dry Skin #3: Face Scrub

Dry skin can also look dull, which is where exfoliation comes in. Try buffing away dead skin cell buildup from the surface of your skin with a sugar scrub three times a week this winter. Choose from the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow ScrubL’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Scrub, or L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Scrub. Whichever face scrub you pick, you can expect skin that looks smoother and feels softer post-use.

Winter Skin Care Product for Dry Skin #4: Cica Cream

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you should skip out on your anti-aging skin care routine. In fact, use the winter as the season to commit to a skin care resolution and help address the appearance of fine line and wrinkles. That’s where the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Cicacream Face Moisturizer Pro-Retinol & Centella Asiatica comes in. Formulated to strengthen skin’s barrier to help resist the appearance of visible fine lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, and other signs of aging, we have a feeling that cica cream is quickly going to become your skin’s new BFF.

Winter Skin Care Product for Dry Skin #5: Moisturizer with SPF 

It’s true, you should still be diligent about applying broad-spectrum sunscreen even during the cold months of winter. Look for a moisturizer formulated with SPF, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer SPF 30, and apply it as directed. That’s not where your sun protection routine should end, though. Make sure to also limit your amount of time in the sun (especially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.), seek shade, and cover up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses. Shopping trip for cute new winter accessories, anyone?

Winter Skin Care Product for Dry Skin #6: Charcoal Mask

Baby it’s cold outside—and what better way to cozy up in the warmth of your own home than with a charcoal face mask and a good book? The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask is a winter favorite because of the way it helps to reduce the look of dull skin immediately. Apply an even layer of face mask to clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. Use three times a week for best results.

Winter Skin Care Product for Dry Skin #7: Overnight Face Mask

During your nighttime skin care routine, consider applying a hydrating overnight face mask, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple PowerIntensive Overnight Mask, if you have dry skin. This face mask can help hydrate your complexion while you get your beauty sleep. Just apply it over cleansed skin and you’re good to go!

And there you have it—seven skin care products to add to your skin care routine this winter if you have dry skin.
