Must-Have Moisturizers for Winter Weather

Winter is a time for sledding, reading by the fireplace and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa with marshmallows, but it’s also a time that our skin tends to dry out. A tight, dry feeling can plague the face, hands and feet which can cause discomfort, flaking or cracking. The low humidity levels draw the moisture from the skin, leaving us quenched. Luckily, the right moisturizer can keep your skin from getting dry and we’ve rounded up these best-sellers for you to try.
