As someone with combination skin, I’m used to treating my skin for both dryness and oiliness. During winter months, however, my skin tends to be on the drier side and I switch up my skincare routine to help beat dry skin and add more hydrating skincare products.
There are so many amazing skincare products out there for dry skin but I’m sharing a few that I’ve been reaching for a lot recently.

Hydrating Skincare Products I've Been Using Lately
My lips have been more chapped than ever and a great way to treat dry, chapped lips is to start by using a lip scrub. This Exfoliating Lip Scrub from Thrive Causemetics is one I enjoy because it’s in a stick version, making it less messier to use.
The formula of this lip scrub gently exfoliates flaky lips, moisturizes with hydrating avocado butter and pomegranate seed oil, and preps lips for your choice of lippie or your lip mask during your evening skincare routine.
I follow the Thrive Causemetics Lip Scrub with their Liquid Balm Lip Treatment. Currently using the Pumpkin Spice Latte Liquid Balm Treatment and it’s a leave on lip treatment I like to use to nourish my lips each evening.
This lip treatment is created with lip filler technology to plump and smooth the look of fine lines for an appearance of soft, fuller lips. I use Thrive Causemetics Lip treatment during the day as well!
Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask is a cult favorite and it’s one I like to use in rotation with the Thrive Causemetics lip treatment. The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is a leave-on lip mask that delivers intense moisture to lips.
I like to use a powerful hydrating moisturizer when my skin super dry like it is now during winter. glowoasis glowburst is a top pick for me because the formula is so light yet mighty.
Glowburst is a vegan moisturizer with nutrient-rich ingredients like desert rose leaf extract and blue agave leaf extract. It’s the most lightweight hydrating cream I’ve ever used and does not leave a greasy feel.
When you apply glowburst, it transforms into tiny droplets that soak deep into your skin and instantly hydrates. I have a full post on glowoasis and their products here!
Another go to moisturizer I rely on for hydration is the Farmacy Honey Halo Ultra-Hydrating Ceramide Moisturizer. Honey Halo is a moisturizer that deeply hydrates dry skin and also visibly plumps skin and improves the look of fine lines.
Honey Halo is a bit thicker formula compared to glowburst but still really comfortable to wear and does not leave a greasy feel. It skins deep into skin, leaving skin perfectly hydrated.
I like using a hydrating wash off mask about once a week for a deeper hydration. Farmacy’s Honey Potion is one of my go to’s for that because it does exactly that and also leaves my skin looking renewed and glowy.
I massage the product into my skin for a minute and then leave on for about 10-15 minutes before washing it off.
We talked about our face and lips, let’s talk about the rest of our body! I have two body lotions I’ve been using nonstop during winter and the first one is this eos body lotion in the scent vanilla cashmere. It smells oh so delightful and is deeply hydrating.
It’s one of the more affordable body lotions, coming in under $10. I enjoy this one specifically because the formula with shea butter quickly absorbs into skin for all day hydration.
Not only am I obsessed with the sleek packaging with the pop of bright pink, the formula of this body lotion is wonderful. This vegan Drunk Elephant body lotion is not only incredibly hydrating, it helps improve uneven tone and texture and smooths rough, bumpy skin.
I especially like using this on my legs for the added benefits.
