What is your go-to cream to prevent/aid winter skin? How do you keep your skin super soft even during the drying months?

I’ve actually been trying out all sorts of different ones. I found Osmotics Cream Extreme to be EXCELLENT for super, super dry, flaking skin (like disgustingly flakey!). It’s a bit too expensive for me to use 24/7, though, throughout the winter.

    I don’t really have a cream…for my body during the winter I’ll use a sugar scrub from Bath and Body Works once a week. After every shower I use body oil(the Equate brand) and Olay lotion(extra dry).

    Aveeno daily brightening moisteriser with SPF 15. It works rather well for preventing/curing mild to moderate flakyness. And it has sun protection!

  3. WOW – I just checked the price for Osmotics & my jaw dropped, lol. I really need something for around my nose & mouth during the winter months. I’m still on the quest to find the perfect cream. Arbonne Nutrimin Night Cream works decent enough, but I feel like I need a little something MORE because I have dry skin year around, so the winter months only make it worse.

    I just started using Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion & its doing a pretty good job at battling against everyday dry skin.

    • LOL! yes, it’s pricey, but it SO works. My mouth area was flaking so bad that it looked like I had gotten ridiculously sunburned and the skin was peeling off :( EW. I was quite happy to be able to go around looking normal again, even at $75, lol.

    I use either Clarins Multi-Active Day Gel or Engergizing Morning Cream. I have combination skin so I don’t need a very heavy moisturizer.

    i use ddf ultra-lite moisturizing dew and nars hydrating lotion… it definitely beats the flakies!

    For face I just follow my usual routine:
    -cleanse with Gentle gel cleanser by Avène
    -apply Hydrance Optimale with SPF 15 by Avène

    The Avène cream is particularly good for winter: It’s really resistant and protects your skin from biting wind and cold.

    For the body I recently got a 400ml bottle of La Roche-Posay Iso-Urea, which has a wonderful consistency and is immediately absorbed.

    PS-I’m in Europe, so I’m not sure if you have these brands in the US.

  7. I’ve been using Kinerase Ultimate Day and Night Moisturizer for my skin.

    For Ariele, DHC has these facial moisture strips for the mouth area to keep it hydrated if you’re interested – and they’re on sale!

    Le Mer, Le Mer, Le Mer. The pricetag is wretched though!

    What I use is pretty simple, my girlfriend who is a liscensed manicurist got me started using lotion & vaseline mixed together. I just pick out my favorite lotion, & mix it with a little vaseline in my hands & it works awesome!!
