Redness, dark circles and cracked skin are just a few of the womanly banes we face each winter. As temperatures drop, the air turns crisp and our hair fills with static, it becomes even more important to nourish, alleviate and moisturize our thirsty skin. To find the best winter skin remedies (aside from the best drugstore beauty buys) that actually work, we visited some of our favorite skincare and cosmetic boutiques. Take a look at this knock-out list of products that will leave your skin feeling baby-bottom soft!

Eminence Facial Recovery Oil

An ideal product for all skin types, the Facial Recovery Oil by Eminence Organic is a restorative blend of oils and herbs that combats dry skin as well as aging. It’s incredibly nourishing and penetrating and is gentle on sensitive or irritated skin. The best part is, it can be used on any part of your body, such as cracked feet, stretch marks, scars or cuticles. Apply two to three drops each day or night as part of your everyday skincare regimen. Available at O.Liv Body Bar for $76 for .5 oz.

Yon-Ka Masque No. 1

This intensive gel cream works wonders on dry and cracked skin. What sets it apart from other hydrating products is its time-release properties, so it’s best used at night after washing your face. In the first hour of applying it to your face, 54% of its ingredients are absorbed; after 4 hours, 90%; after 8 hours, 96%. It’s paraben-free, non-comedogenic and smells like roses and jasmine. It’s incredibly beneficial for damaged skin as its gel-like consistency has penetrating powers. Available for $ at Love Skin.

Therapy Systems Revitalizing Treatment Serum

There are few (if any) items at Therapy Systems that we don’t absolutely love, and this Revitalizing Treatment Serum is no exception. With a unique blend of essential oils, it smells divine and has major anti-inflammatory properties. It can be used in several different ways, like being layered under your moisturizer and foundation, or being incorporated into your other daily products. It should be used everyday for the best results, but one little pump goes a long way. Available for $59 (1 oz) and $85 (2 oz).

Tata Harper Moisturizing Mask

We’ve seen this product splashed on the pages of numerous beauty publications, touting its amazing effects. The luxury skincare brand Tata Harper is beloved for its completely natural and non-toxic ingredients. They have lots of great products for winter skin but the Tata Harper Moisturizing Mask is one of the best. It’s used as an overnight hydration mask. Just apply a couple of pumps to your face to create a thick layer. When you wake, you can simply blot off the excess, as the majority will have absorbed right into your skin! Available for $110 (1.7 oz) at Private Edition and The Cosmetic Market.
