Snow-proof Skin Solutions: The Best Moisturisers for Dry Skin

Snow-proof Skin Solutions: The Best Moisturisers for Dry Skin

Say hello to smooth skin all season long!

By Sophie Catsoulis | 21st July 2016

As much as we hate sweating off coats of carefully-applied contour, come July we are pining for dewy summer days past – at least, our skin is. If there’s one thing we know for certain it’s that (for most of us) cold weather and radiant skin just don’t mix. No matter how much highlighter we apply, we just can’t fake that summer glow.

Makeup woes aside, this is quite the predicament for our skin. Winter strips our skin of its much-needed moisture and replaces it with unwelcome coarseness courtesy of the harsh July winds. This may sound like a slight exaggeration, considering we live in Brisbane, a city that enjoys an almost endless summer, but unlike the early-morning exercise excuse, in this case, cold weather truly does take its toll.

Instead of accepting this bleak fate, we scoured the shops to source the very best moisturisers that promise to hydrate even the driest of skin. Say farewell to the days of dry, flaky skin and say to hello to smooth skin all season long.

Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream

This product is a must-have for every girl with even slightly dry skin. Soothing aloe vera and cucumber extracts provide much-needed hydration and, when combined with the shielding properties of antioxidant grape seed, it’s a match made in heaven for skin protection.

On the opposite end of the skin spectrum, QV’s Intensive Body Moisturiser is the perfect remedy for distressed décolletage. Enjoy soft skin like never before and seal in every last drop of moisture with the thick, luxurious body balm.

Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator

Working out a good skin regimen can be a tough task, particularly when you suffer from super sensitive skin. Instantly replenish your skin without any of the side effects with Clinique’s velvet-touch serum.

Aesop Parsley Seed Antioxidant Hydrator

Protect your skin from the perils of daily life with Aesop’s all-natural hydrator. Renowned for organic ingredients and irresistible smells, in this instance, Aesop exceeds even these great expectations.

Dior Capture Totale Multi-Perfection Crème

For the diehard designer worshiper, it’s hard to go past a high-end skin care range. But, more often than not, we feel as though we’re simply paying for the (admittedly gorgeous) label. This is definitely not the case when it comes to Dior’s Capture Totale. Refine the tired texture of your skin and soak up what has to be the most opulent moisturising treatment we’ve tried to date.
