Depending on your location, winter probably has begun slapping you with its cold and ruthless hands by now. I can definitely feel it here in New York City, slicing through my poor delicate skin. Sure, NYC is not the coldest place on this planet, but have some sympathy for me. As someone with extremely dry skin, the 3 or 4 months of winter air we get is just too much for me to handle. If I don’t armor my face with multiple layers, I feel sharp pain from deep inside, each skin cell screaming for help. It’s truly a struggle. So you can understand that I take my search for the Holy Grail moisturizer very, VERY seriously, especially during this cold winter time.
I’ve tried so many products. Whenever I come across a product that uses the phrase “extreme moisture” or “for dry skin”, I purchase and slather it all over my face that night. Most of the time, the next day, I feel the utter failure through tingling pain from dryness. But on very rare occasion, I wake up the next morning feeling like a golden stream of light bestowed upon me as confetti sparkling all over my dewy and glowing skin! Today I wanted to share those products that made me hear those heavenly bells. Here is my list of Holy Grail items for extremely dry skin.
