It’s the most wonderful time of the year but the cold winter can wreak havoc on your skin. Cool air and winds can deprive your complexion of moisture so it’s very important to hydrate your skin more often than the usual. The lack of water in the outer layer of the skin can lead to a string of skin concerns including dryness, redness and cracking of lips, among others. Just like we switch our tank tops for over-sized sweaters during the colder months, your skincare routine requires a major update, too.
Here at Kosmify, we have tried so many moisturizers to find out which ones will effectively hydrate the skin for long periods of time. We hadn’t had any luck until we tested the following holy grail moisturizers that helped us win the war against skin dehydration:

Top Winter Skin Care Tip: It’s critical to exfoliate the skin during the winter season in order to remove dry, dead skin cells and to clear out your pores. Your skin will absorb your moisturizer better if the skin is free from impurities.
