Fall and winter conditions can be tough on your skin, making it hard for you to keep it moisturized and healthy. Cool air (which has less moisture in it than warm air) and harsh winds can dry out your skin leading to cracking, flaking, and itching. It is important to use a good moisturizer that can both nourish your skin and protect it from the elements.
Here are blogger, Bridget’s top 5 moisturizer picks that could help you protect and nourish your skin in Fall:
Aveeno Smart Essential Daily Nourishing Moisturizer with SPF 30 Your skin is vulnerable in the damaging cool weather conditions. Make sure you protect it from the harsh rays of the sun, which can penetrate on even cloudy days. This moisturizers helps to protect your skin from UV rays while also moisturizing it and healing it with antioxidants.
Garnier Refreshing Gel Cream This heavy moisturizer helps to lock in moisture and provide a protective barrier against drying elements. You can wear this moisturizer during the day or at night.
Bioderma Hydrabio Specially formulated for dehydrated and sensitive skin, this moisturizer helps to nourish the skin to restore moisture. It also has properties to help “train” the skin to stimulate its own hydration process to learn to better protect itself.
Lancome Hydra Zen Neurocalm The “oil-in-water texture” of this moisturizer helps provide intense soothing for dry and damaged skin. Great for skin that has been stressed by damaging seasonal conditions.
La Mer This crème de la crème in moisturizers will help to strengthen, smooth, nourish and brighten your skin, counteracting the damaging effects of cool weather and helping to reverse the signs of aging. However, you should expect to pay top price for this moisturizer with a top reputation: $150 for just 1 ounce!
The key to finding a quality moisturizer for fall conditions is to look for those that have humectants to lock in moisture and that can provide nourishment for stressed or damaged skin.
