If your hands, lips, and body feel chapped and dry, you’re not alone — and if you’re like me, you are probably ready to do anything to keep yourself moisturized.
I am always searching for reliable skincare products that’ll help keep us feeling hydrated and silky smooth from head to toe. Items from hand cream, lip balm, and moisturizers for dry skin are everywhere.
However, it’s so challenging to know which actually works. The products I am sharing below are a must for me to make it through these cold months, along with a few tips I have learned to stay moisturized.
Tips to keep in mind when dealing with dry skin.
- Ditch the Hot Showers. I admit settling in under a hot shower feels so good. However, truthfully it removes moisture from our skin. Instead, try a lukewarm shower and limit it to five minutes.
- Products containing hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or ceramides aim to help lock in moisture, retain water, and delivers a dewy look.
- Turn down the thermostat. It may be cold outside, but you can layer up instead of blasting the heat. The heat dries out your skin, which is the opposite of what you need this time of year. If lowering the heat isn’t an option, invest in a humidifier. It’ll help add moisture back into your space, which your skin will absorb.

I love this in my daily routine, and my skin does as well. During the winter time my face usually gets dull and dehydrated. Two drops is the right consistency for my face to feel plump and hydrated. It makes my face look glowy without feeling tacky or sticky.
The Neutrogena Hydro Boost line is amazing! Dry skin, in general, has ailed me for years. But, using Neutrogena Hydro Boost has helped my dry skin after one application.

We are loving this advanced therapy lip treatment, that has us all buzzing. It’s a fan fave because it works, unlike so many lip balms that tend to leave your lips drier than when they started. Fresh Sugar helps prevent moisture loss and, as a bonus, has a plumping effect. I welcome a fuller look without a procedure or hefty invoice. So say goodbye to peeled lips for good.
This hydrating lip oil has been a lifesaver! Wintertime can be brutal on
my lips, and nothing appears to heal them from becoming the Sahara desert. Luckily, I received Burt’s Bees Hydrating Lip Oil as a stocking stuffer, and my lips have never felt better.
This oil goes on super smooth, and unlike other lip oils, it’s not sticky and oh-so-hydrating! Immediately I felt a difference, and ultimately the dryness faded.
Shower gels and body washes
This one does it all you want during the winter: cleans your skin, nourishes it, and leaves it softer than you started. In addition, it’s cruelty-free and comes in 100% recycled plastic bottles.
Go ahead and lather up, friends. Once the oil hits the water, it becomes a milky foam that gently cleanses your body. Transforming your skin into a velvety softness you’ll absolutely love.
I love this product’s oil and sugar combinationof this scrub. After the stresses of a long day, this body scrub will leave your skin feeling soft and completely moisturized after one use! It’s obvious, why it’s always out of stock. Once you try and love it I suggest you double up on your next purchase.
