You Asked, So I Answered...Must-Have Moisturizers for Winter!

Winter months bring snow, happiness, holidays, & family. But it also brings stress, dry skin, & high credit card bills! I can't do too much about the credit card bills, but I can DEFINITELY help with the dry skin (which may help reduce your stress as well!).

My Must-Have Moisturizers for the Upcoming Months!

*Face Moisturizer should keep your skin hydrated until you wash your face at night! Now, there isn't one product that works for everyone, since every has different skin. So here are my fave's!

Dry to Extremely Dry Skin - Dr. Perricone Face Finishing Moisturizer ($65+)

Using this moisturizer over a facial serum, my peronsal favorite being Zelen's Radical Defense Serum, gives a fresh, hydrated, clean feeling, without the skin feeling greasy or back to dry for the entire day! Dr Perricone has amazing serums as well, and Zelen's has amazing face moisturizers. This duo, for me, works well with my budget (the Zelen's is a splurge ($210), but necessary!)
For a more budget-friendly serum, Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum is under $25 and available at Target. It works wonders with hydration, aging and prepping the skin for the next steps.

Normal Skin - Oil of Olay Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid (under $15)

This is one of the best moisturizers out there - and its found at your local drugstore! I recommend using a serum with any skin type, however many people with normal skin tend to feel a little greasy when layering too many hydration products, even if they are oil-free. Using a oil-free foundation primer (if you wear foundation or powder) can add that little bit of extra skin protection that you need. I love Laura Mercier Oil-Free Foundation Primer ($30). 

Combination to Oily Skin - Mary Kay Timewise Combination-Oily Moisturizer ($22)

Many are not familiar with Mary Kay. It is a independent sales company, where you work with a  personal consultant to get the products that work for you. Their Skin Care Collections have been number one in the US for over ten years in a row - most don't know about it since the product isn't sold in your local department or drugstore.
At a very budget-friendly price of under $25, Mary Kay's moisturizer is fabulous for people with comination to oily skin. If you are very oily, to keep the oil under control, try their matching cleanser. The set is under $35 and will last 4-5 months with daily use.
Mary Kay also has primers and serums, as well as many other products, that are designated for different skin types.
