Winter Skincare Series: Major Moisturizing Round Up

Posted by ChickAdvisor Team | Thursday November 14, 20136 comments

My skin is actually as dry as a bad fruitcake. Blargh! It's like a desert on my face. Pretty soon, you'll start seeing cracks from lack of water. Winter just does me in. As soon as the wind starts to blow, it's like my body senses it and immediately dries up like a cracker. 

What do I use to solve my dry issues? A mixture of everday essential creams, a moisturizing serum and mask and I always have a super emollient emergency fix salve or balm on hand for quick dry patches that may develop. 

Here are a few winter favourites from CA HQ:

I smear my feet with petroleum jelly and cover with a pair of old socks overnight, this really helps heal dry cracked feet.

I just got Imperialis lotion from Lush. I love it, it smells great and you only need to use a tiny bit to moisturize your whole face, which totally makes up for the price. Plus it's great for combination skin like mine.
