How to protect dry skin throughout the day: winter guide

Winter cleansing for dry skin

Cleansing is an important element of your skincare routine, whatever the season. In winter, however, you might choose to opt for a gentle creamy texture that eliminates impurities while also caring for your skin, such as La Roche-Posay's Cleansing Milk. Designed for dry and sensitive skin, your face doesn't feel tight or uncomfortable after washing.

Winter moisturisers for dry skin

All skin is different. Your dry skin isn't necessarily the same as other people's, which is why it's important to choose the moisturiser that best suits your particular concerns. The Hydraphase Intense Riche Moisturiser has been designed for skin lacking in moisture: Hyaluronic Acid fragments instantly infuse moisture into the skin to help maintain hydration, and the La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water soothes irritation. For an everyday richly nourishing moisturiser, the Nutritic Intense Moisturising Cream is a daily solution for dry and sensitive skin that will protect your complexion all through winter.

Complete winter body care for dry skin

The Lipikar skincare collection by La Roche-Posay has been designed specifically for dry, very dry and sensitive skin, making it perfect for skin that's been battered by winter weather. The Lipikar Baume AP+ Moisture Replenishing Balm is suitable for the entire body, adults and children alike. Enriched with Aqua Posae Filiformis, the balm hydrated skin all day, soothes irritation and protects against drying.

Winter eye contour cream for dry skin

For eye contours that feel dry and tight, perhaps showing signs of aging, the Toleriane Ultra Eye Contour cream soothes dryness and discomfort around the eyes. This in turn reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving you a fresher and younger-looking expression. Those who escape on winter ski holidays - where the sun and snow can leave you squinting on the slopes - will definitely appreciate this in their beauty bags!
