There Are Things To Love About Winter, Dry Skin Is Not One Of Them
Beautiful snow falls, hot chocolate, cozy sweaters. There are definitely things I love about winter. On the other hand there are the not-so-awesome things like freezing temperatures and drying indoor heat that wreak havoc on my skin. Over the years I’ve taken a few steps in an effort to prevent my skin from getting super uncomfortable. My best decision? A humidifier. After using a humidifier for the past 3 winters I don’t know how I ever went without one. My skin looks and feels better but the humidifier is only one step of my routine to tackle winter skin. Despite what a skin-saver it’s been, a thick and rich moisturizer is just as indispensable.
Dr. Jarts+ Ceramidin Cream Is A Winter Staple Of Mine
Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream was a blind buy of mine. I was perusing Sephora last year when Ceramidin’s simple packaging with a decidedly medical aesthetic called to me. I was skeptical it would be very good but hopeful nonetheless. When I bought it it was late winter/early spring so my face was dry. Over a couple of weeks I noticed my skin looked more hydrated and felt way more comfortable. I don’t know about you but I find the feeling of dry skin on my face super distracting. Over the next while I would apply Ceramidin any time my face felt like it needed extra moisture and it always delivered.
Dr. Jart descibes Ceramidin as;
Supercharged with the power of ceramides, this moisturizer quenches dehydrated skin and supports the skin’s moisture barrier with time-release moisture for up to 26-hours. It helps prevent chronic water loss and seals in moisture to relieve dryness and irritated skin caused by environmental stress. It improves the appearance of fine lines, flakiness, and tightness, leaving skin looking and feeling healthier and smoother.
This year when the cool weather rolled around I busted out my humidifier and bought my second tube of Ceramidin. There are other moisturizers I love but so far Ceramidin has earned another spot on my shelf. Here’s hoping it can keep my skin comfy for another winter.
Have you tried it? Do you have a go-to winter moisturizer?
