Dry skin

Does your skin feel tight or get flaky patches around your nose, eyebrows and chin? You probably have dry skin, which is very common in the winter months. Pick a moisturizer that will provide a lot of hydration.

Oily skin

Does your skin get shiny a few hours after your wash it? Are you constantly worried about clogged pores? You likely have oily skin, which is not a bad thing in the dry winter months! Try a lotion that provides light hydration so it won’t weigh your skin down.

Combination skin

If your skin gets dry and flaky in some places but stays oily along your t-zone or chin, you have combination skin. It can be hard to find the right kind of moisturizer for this skin type. You need to give yourself balanced moisture while protecting the more sensitive areas.

Sensitive skin

If your skin tends to get red and tender during the winter, with maybe a few dry patches around your nose, you likely have sensitive skin. This type is not precisely dry or oily and is frequently prone to breakouts. You need a moisturizer that’s very gentle and provides soothing hydration.
