Top 3 Moisturizing Essentials You Need This Fall

Winter is here! Avoid the skin-drama now or don’t be sorry later! This means it's time to get all those jackets and sweaters out of your closet and bring your moisture game on!

Winter is unlike any other season as it affects our skin the most due to its massive temperature drop. In summer you need light moisture, however, in winter you will need heavier products to lock the moisture in. If the skin is not generously moisturized the skin may develop cracks which will lead to dehydration of the skin and eventually the inflammation of the skin.

Your skin may have to pay a heavy price if it is not taken care of. Therefore, in order to protect the skin as it tends to become pretty fragile during the winter, here are our favourite picks of skincare essentials that will hydrate and keep your skin supple that are cream based and are targeted to keep your skin moisturized and hydrated at all times.

  1. Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream

    Created with African oils, plantain extracts, crosspolymer, omega acids, sodium hyaluronate, and green tea, this 2016-2018 Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner, is a feather-light textured moisturizing cream. It’s smooth and rich nature will have your skin brighter than before and leave it hydrated for a long time.

    Drunk Elephant claims that its products are meant solely for rescuing dull and dry skin and offer the skin a precise amount of moisture that will last throughout the day and night. The packaging is cute and really attractive. Beginners can give the trial pack a shot which is easily available.

    You can also use it a treatment for spots or dry patches on the skin. It instantly relives these patches and leaves the skin healed. Many (just like us) may think that this product is pricier than usual moisturizers, which is why the ‘Lala Retro’ must be used as an investment for the winter.

  2. First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum

    This water-based serum helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles on the skin and packs moisture into the skin. This is an optimal choice for individuals with oily skin because the texture of this product is light and hydrating.

    It does make you feel like you have just slathered heaps of oil on to your skin. The product penetrates into your skin and leaves it supple instead of creating a layer of oiliness on the outside of the skin. This serum is so light that you can use it under other moisturizing products as well.

    This serum is not just popular for its hydration properties but also its ability to heal irritated skin. Due to its ingredients such as, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera extracts, peptides, and colloidal oats the skin is rejuvenated, plum and has a healthy glow.

  3. Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask

    Created with apricot, avocado and kernel oils that deeply hydrate the skin with an ample amount of moisture, this mask can be applied and left overnight.

    This mask also includes Japanese seaweed to get rid of any premature signs of ageing. This products tagline reads, “quench skin’s thirst”, which it has managed to keep up with successfully.

    If you have never used a mask before and not sure of how it is going to affect your skin try its smaller packs that will be available at any beauty stores.
