Hey DivaGals! Cold winter weather can be harsh on your skin, leading to dryness, irritation and other skin issues. Maintaining moisturized and hydrated skin during cold winter months is essential for everyone, regardless of skin tone.

Never fear! The DivaGals have rounded up five winter-friendly beauty products to combat dry skin and hair. Read on!

Choose a Rich Moisturizer

Moisturizers with rich and nourishing ingredients like shea or cocoa butter or oils such as jojoba, olive or almond oil help lock in moisture during these months. Specially formulated for melanin-rich skin, NIVEA Skin Firming Melanin Beauty & Hydration Body Lotion offers a gentle formula that revitalizes, tightens and nourishes dry, melanin-rich skin. Providing 48-hour moisture, it leaves skin soft, smooth and radiantly beautiful through ingredients like Q10 + natural argan oil (we hear Porsha Williams is a fan!).

Use a Gentle Cleanser

While the rest of you may be bundled up, your face still braves the cold in the winter. A hydrating, gentle cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils is key. Straberi Skincare Continous Glow Cleanser is a gentle, invigorating formula that helps improve the skin’s moisture barrier. It provides light exfoliating action that lifts away dead skin cells while infusing moisture and hydration.

Don’t Forget Sunscreen

Even in the winter, UV rays can damage your skin. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and apply it to exposed skin, especially your face. Relevant One and DoneEveryday Cream with SPF 40 is a 4-in-1 lightweight daily moisturizer with a broad Spectrum SPF 40 that replaces daily sunscreen, moisturizer, serum and primer. Envisioned by beauty entrepreneur Nyakio Grieco, the brand is a one-of-a-kind champion for inclusion in beauty.

Protect Your Lips

Lips can become dry and chapped in the winter. Use a moisturizing lip balm with shea butter or coconut oil to keep your lips hydrated. Drinking plenty of water is crucial for overall skin health. Hydrate from the inside out to help maintain your skin’s natural moisture levels. Fenty Beauty Cherry Treat Conditioning + Strengthening Lip Oil hydrates and strengthens the lips’ moisture barrier for fuller-looking lips, while its antioxidant-rich formula defends lips against environmental stressors.

Add Oil to Your Hair

Hair can feel even more dry and brittle in the winter months. The fatty acids in cold-pressed oils can prevent moisture loss, which helps prevent frizz, split ends and breakage. Try British M Annatto Hair Oil, an award-winning K-Beauty cult favorite. It’s eco-friendly and made from sustainable resources, formulated with Amazonian Annatto and organic Pumpkin and Argan Oils to nourish and strengthen hair.

Remember, consistency is key. Establishing a winter skincare routine and sticking to it will help keep your skin moisturized, hydrated, and glowing throughout the colder months.
