Beauty Road Test: Beat Winter Skin and Hair


You don’t have to wait for warmer weather to get your supple skin and silky hair back. We road tested the best moisturizing products out there for face, hair and body — and brought you our favorites for getting winter skin back into shape.

SheerinO’kho Uptown/Downtown Wintertime: The super-moisturizing organic lotion, $105, is formulated to protect against changes in weather and guard skin from environmental pollutants.

Ole Henricksen Pure Perfection and Skin Insulator: The Danish brand’s botanical day and night creams are the perfect skincare tag-team. Pure Perfection, $48, is lightweight but super-moisturizing, and nourishes skin all night without stickiness. Herbal Day Cream, with SPF 15, $35, is a miracle at keeping skin hydrated all day long—and best of all, its non-greasy formula lets you still apply make-up with ease.

Imedeen Time Perfection oral supplement: Providing further proof that beauty isn’t just skin-deep, Imedeen tablets nourish skin from within. When taken daily, the European skincare staple, $75, protects skin from free-radicals and dramatically increases volume.

SkinMilk Body Lotion: The powder-fresh scented rejuvenating lotion uses white pond lily to leave skin soft and refreshed. And the price is pretty refreshing too. A large 22 oz. bottle of SkinMilk will set you back under $6.

Fekkai Advanced Hair care All-Day Hair Plump: At $95, the leave-in treatment is pricey, but Fekkai‘s signature Hyaluronate Humectants plump up the cuticle and leave hair moisturized around the clock.

Weleda Skin Food: We love that Weleda‘s $10 all-natural, all-purpose cream uses plant extracts to sooth skin and maintain its natural moisture balance, on face, hands or even chapped lips.

Sundari Omega 3 & Mandarin Lip Treatment: The $15 balm‘s all-natural avocado oil and olive-based emollients leave skin moisturized without stickiness. And the orange flavor is reminiscent of warmer, sunnier days.

NIA24 Intensive Recovery Complex: This extreme cream, $110, activates skin’s regererative powers by locking in moisture. Plus its Pro-Niacin formula improves skin tone and texture to get you all set for spring.
