Here's our skin care guide for this winter.

Let it snow! Winter is the time for holidays, turkey dinners, cold hands, warm hearts and card games with your family.

But when you’re feeling the seasonal love you don’t want to be distracted by your dislike for your dry, winter skin. Let’s keep those snowflakes falling from the sky and not from your skin this season.

Here are some products to help keep your skin smooth and fresh all winter long.

1 Benefit POREfessional Face Primer

This oil-free face primer is pure magic – it casts a spell on skin that makes it feel silky smooth. This product is like a magic wand; it does a dazzling job of making makeup stay put and makes all pores vanish instantly.

If you haven’t witnessed the wonders of Nivea lip balm yet, the winter is the perfect time. It’s great for getting your lips feeling ultra hydrated and soft, but never greasy.

One of the best products for this is tamanu oil, which contains antibacterial, anti-inflammatory antioxidants that prevent breakouts and sun damage by promoting new skin cell generation and healing existent acne scars.

5 Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Cocoa Radiant

This moisturizer is perfect for locking in that post-shower silky smooth feeling. We recommend toweling off and then spraying this moisturizer all over the body while the bathroom door is still closed so that yous skin has the chance to absorb the shower steam, too.

The product cuts lotion time in half by making it much easier to cover those hard-to-reach areas.

6 The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Body Butter

The Body Shop is back with a body butter in everyone’s favorite moisturizing scent: cocoa butter.

With this cult favorite for ladies looking to heal scarred skin, customers are now able to give back to the product that’s been able to give them the skin of their dreams.

The Body Shop’s take on the classic exclusively uses community trade cocoa butter from Ghana, a third of whose farmers are women. Support fair trade and female farmers while getting 24-hour hydration crafted perfectly for dry, winter skin.

7 Kiehl s Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm

Kiehl’s has been a beauty counter staple since 1851 and to this day it churns out new products to delight us. One of the company’s recent products is a facial balm that functions as a moisturizer, toner, after-cleanser or serum for any time of the day.

The moisturizer – made with glycerin and flower extract native to the mountain peaks of the Swiss Alps – is so concentrated that you only need a dime-size amount for your full face to keep your face balmy smooth for 24 hours.
