Winter moisturizers we love — including a $10 option that’s pretty awesome

When you have dry skin, winter can feel like a death sentence. Sounds dramatic, but when you mix cold weather conditions like sleet and harsh winds with dry, forced indoor heat, you can get majorly flaky, uncomfortable skin that’s prone to irritation and redness. You might think the solution is to douse yourself with the nearest tub of Vaseline or something equally occlusive, but unless you layer a good hydrating moisturizer for dry skin underneath it, you’ll just be sealing in the dryness.

Before you pick up just any moisturizer, know what to look for first: A formula with hydrators like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or propylene glycol are all great options, and if your skin is particularly sensitive, make sure it’s fragrance-free.
