Living in Minnesota in the frigid cold with summer far off in the distance can sometimes seem to just last forever. The days are shorter, everywhere you look is white or grey and everything feels so dry. We crank up the heat in our homes to shoo out the cold air, but that combined with the cold temps can have negative effects on the skin of our face and hands. Thankfully, there are skincare products that can help get you through to the first signs of spring! Below are our top 5 picks to help keep your skin feeling healthy, hydrated and glowing!

iS Clinical Cleansing Complex

Use a gentle cleanser this winter versus a harsh or more aggressive one which can dry out the skin. We love this cleanser because it is great for all skin types and ages. It deeply cleanses the skin and pores without stripping essential natural oils and can effectively remove makeup as well!

iS Clinical Shield Recovery Balm

This product’s amazingly moisture-rich formula will help replenish hydration to dry, sensitive skin. It protects the skin by providing an antioxidant-rich barrier, leaving it feeling soft and hydrated. Pro tip: Use on dry face and hands during the cold winter months to protect and hydrate the skin.

iS Clinical Youth Intensive Crème

This anti-aging product has a very rich and luxurious formula that is packed with antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and growth factor. It provides powerful, 24-hour hydration that helps visibly plump and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time.

Obagi Therapeutic Moisturizer

This product’s hydrating ingredients, including 20% glycerol, will help reduce flaking, irritation, tightness and itching while creating a softer and smoother texture. Pro tip: Apply over your regular moisturizer to really lock in moisture!

Skin Medica HA5 & HA5 Smooth and Plump Lip System

Both of these products capitalize on the amazing capability of hyaluronic acid. The Ha5 Rejuvenating Hydrator should be used morning and night after cleansing, toning and treating the skin, right before moisturizing and applying SPF. It includes a mix of five forms of hyaluronic acid that will smooth the skin and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

When using the two-step Lip System, replenish lost hydration, smooth fine lines and plump the appearance of lips!
