Winter is a wonderland with crisp air, comfy sweaters and falling temperatures. Sadly, it’s also rough on your skin. That’s why I turn to these skin-saving products to get me through New York’s chilly temps.
Klorane Smoothing and Relaxing Patches – According to the Daily Mail, circles and bags under the eyes appear significantly darker in the colder months, which is why I turn to Klorane Smoothing and Relaxing Patches.

Pulsaderm H2O Infusion – I’m a big advocate of serums and this Hyaluronic Acid Serum is a popular skin care product due to it’s ability to quench even the driest skin. When used under your face cream or mixed in, it binds water, boosting skins’ moisture content and preventing depletion.
Aquation Daily Moisturizing Lotion – I was recently introduces to drugstore brand Aquation and found it similar to Cetaphil in that it was light and good for sensitive skin while packing a big beneficial punch.

Insider Tip: The cream can be used on both body AND face.
