The best in winter skincare

TextAlex Peters

As temperatures drop skin can become drier, more sensitive and more easily irritated. Dazed Beauty are here to help with a roundup of the best products to keep your skin radiant this winter.

Baby, it's cold outside. Winter is on its way bringing with it dropping temperatures, harsh winds and icy air for many of us. Humidity tends to drop this time of year, pulling moisture from the skin and the fluctuating temperatures as we go between the outside cold and indoor heating can cause irritation and sensitivity. It’s important to keep hydrated, avoid harsh cleansing and exfoliating, and keep your skin barrier as healthy as possible so it can retain vital moisture. Here we round up the best products to help keep your skin plump and radiant this winter.

Alex Steinherr Maximum Moisture, Micellar Cleansing Gel

At just five pounds you can’t go wrong with this gentle cleansing gel from skincare expert and beauty director Alex Steinherr’s new Primark Collection. Since the micellar is a gel, rather than the usual water, this cleanser provides more moisture than other formulas making it a perfect choice for your winter cleanser. Check out the rest of the products in the Maximum Moisture collection if you’re looking for a routine overhaul at a great price.

Nivea Lip Balm Soothe & Protect

Lips can get very dry during the cold weather, and licking them will only make it worse. Keep them soothed and protected with this Nivea lip balm with SPF15. If that still isn’t doing the job, our Creative Director Isamaya Ffrench recommends Lasinsoh Nipple Cream. “Lansinsoh is a must for lips,” she says. “It’s for breastfeeding mums with cracked nipples so it really does work.”

Weleda Skin Food

A favourite of the beauty industry, Weleda’s Skin Food is a winter saviour not only for your face but elbows, hands, feet – anywhere that needs a little extra moisture. With ingredients that are sustainably sourced and 100% natural, including pansy flower and rosemary leaf extract which can aid in treating skin conditions such as eczema due to their natural antiseptic qualities, Skin Food is a must-have moisturiser this winter.

La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra

La Roche Posay’s Toleriane Ultra Intense Soothing Care is a classic. Formulated to remove all potential irritant or allergy-inducing ingredients, this moisturiser is perfect for soothing ultra-sensitive or highly reactive skin. If you find the original a little too rich for your oily skin, however, the new edition to the family, Toleriane Fluid, is a great option for you.

Perricone MD Chia Serum

Perricone MD’s Chia Serum not only hydrates dry skin but it also protects against water loss by strengthening the skin’s lipid barrier which regulates moisture levels. Full of chia oil, one of the richest vegetable sources of omega 3 fatty acids, use this serum as the last step of your skincare regime.

Marie Veronique Barrier Restore Serum

This serum from Marie Veronique strengthens and maintains the skin barrier (stratum corneum) which can be damaged by harsh exfoliating and weakened by age leading to more sensitive skin. By balancing the moisture levels in your skin, this serum hydrates, corrects inflammation and relieves dermatitis-related conditions.

Eau Thermale Avène Cold Cream Hand Cream

It’s not just your face that needs protecting this winter. Exposed to the elements and harsh winds, hands are bound to get dry and irritated. Protect and hydrate them with Avène’s rich cold cream for hands.
