Winter Skin Saviors: The Best Skincare Products for Dry Skin

We just got almost two feet of snow in New York, which means winter is in full swing. Dry, cold air is sending my skin into irritation nation and I'm not a fan. When I'm in need of some major skin-saving ingredients, these are the tried and tested products that never fail.

Farmacy Beauty Honey Potion Mask

Farmacy Honey Potion fact mask for dry skin with a wicker basket in the top right corner and a white tile background.

This mask is my go-to for days when my skin is feeling tight and dry. Believe it or not, the honey in this mask is incredibly hydrating, making it the perfect at-home treatment for dry skin.


I use the Farmacy Honey Potion Mask once or twice a week and it leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated.


Pro Tip: Apply before getting in the shower for the easiest rinsing experience!


 

Topicals Like Butter Hydrating Mask

Two tubes of skincare products, one yellow and one pink. The yellow one reads: "Like Butter" by Topicals skincare

This mask is another go-to for dry skin! While new to my skincare arsenal, the Like Butter mask has quickly climbed my list of favorite products.


Like Butter is super silky and a little goes a long way. It includes tons of dry skin-saving ingredients and is synthetic dye and fragrance-free, which is even better for extra sensitive skin!


Pro Tip: Use with the Experiment Avant Guard Reusable Sheet Mask... trust me.

 

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream

Skincare cream texture, First Aid Beauty product for dry skin.

If you're like me, you love versatility. The Ultra Repair Cream from F.A.B is one of the most versatile creams I own. I use it every night on my face and on my whole body after every shower. It's so thick and soothing but never leaves my skin feeling heavy or greasy.


Bonus: Ultra Repair Cream comes in a big tub (6 o.z.), meaning you won't run out quickly.


Pro Tip (for body use): Apply on slightly damp skin for ultimate absorption.

 

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask

Tube of Summer Fridays Jet Lag face mask on a cork coaster set. White background, green leaves, and a white candle sitting in a light blue dish.

It's a cult favorite for a reason. The Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask is an amazing, versatile, hydrating product. In the winter, I use this as an all-over face mask, under-eye treatment, hand cream, and dry-patch spot treatment.


Pro Tip: If you've never used this product before, purchase the mini size ($25 USD) before committing to the bigger tube. A little goes a long way so this should last you a couple of months or more!
