With winter well underway, having a good skin care regimen is absolutely essential in making your skin winter resistant. In the winter, humidity levels are extremely low and factors such as chilly air, snow and rain can make the skin dull and rough. Concerns such as flakiness, itchiness, cracking of the surface of the skin, and redness are just some of the most common skin care issues that winter helps to arise. Using a moisturizer is key! But how do you know which is best for your skin? Fortunately, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite moisturizers for each and every skin type! Check our list below!
Oily Skin: One of the biggest misconceptions is that those with oily skin cannot suffer from skin dehydration. But those with excessive oiliness can still be affected by the harsh winter conditions. Luckily, there is a moisturizer that adheres specifically to oily skin: Cellex-C Sea Silk Oil-Free Moisturizer. Our favorite oily-skin moisturizer, Cellex-C Sea Silk Oil-Free Moisturizer, absorbs quickly to produce a supple, moist skin texture with a non-shine, velvety soft finish. The soft, sea-foam colored cream contains a rich medley of sea botanical extracts designed to achieve the ultimate skin hydration treatment. One of the sea ingredients is Omega Plankton, which helps the skin retain moisture while reducing inflammation. Seaweed Bio-Peptides present in the Moisturizer boost collagen production and restores elasticity, leaving the skin hydrated, smooth and healthy.
