It’s truly survival season for our skin whenever temperatures drop. Besides the fact that it’s cold outside — an understatement on some days — we’re also shuffling in and out of buildings with artificial heat. Now our skin’s confused and reacting on the fly. More often than not, that leaves us scrambling for products, such as moisturizers for itchy skin, that cover myriad issues instead of just one. Because whether we like it or not, such inconsistent weather means we aren’t just shopping as if we’re just one skin type — now we’re living with all of them at once.
Now, according to the experts, dryness is what we’re combatting most. And when our skin has been depleted of both its natural and applied moisture from topical formulas, the by-product is incessant itching. We’ve already run down a short list of tried-and-true moisturizers we’ve actually used more than once, as well chemical exfoliants that make for a surprising cure. But what do the dermatologists actually say? Ahead, nine of them share the face and body products they’d prescribe to clients.
In addition to pricier options made with little-known technologies and ingredients are a few drugstore finds you’re already familiar with. If anything, let this serve as a reminder you should be avoiding ash like the plague; your skin will thank you.
