Raise your hand if dry, dull skin is one of your biggest qualms about winter. (Yup, same.) New York City-based dermatologist Dr. Marie Hayag, founder of 5th Avenue Aesthetics, explains that the combination of the season’s low temperature and humidity can wreak havoc on your skin’s moisture barrier, leaving it feeling dry and irritated.
Don’t worry, though. Dr. Hayag gave us the TL;DR on how to fix it. “Incorporating effective ingredients, reducing water loss, and attracting moisture to your skin can help repair the overall barrier function and prevent the harshest impact of winter weather," she says. She outlines the essential creams, serums, and lotions you need to keep your skin g-l-o-w-i-n-g and looking its healthiest all season long.
Aloe isn't just a summer staple. Just as it soothes sunburns, aloe helps heal red, inflamed skin triggered by the colder elements, Dr. Hayag explains.
Urban Hydration’s Aloe Vera Leaf Micellar Cleanser can remove even the most budge-proof cosmetics without depriving your skin of its much-needed moisture, thanks to its nourishing blend of vitamins and (of course) aloe.
