This winter has been brutal! Snow removal has been a pain, navigating the slippery roads has been a disaster, and the cold has been killer on my skin. Being a compulsive lip balm and moisturizer user, I don’t remember ever feeling as dry as I have this winter. I’ve never had (or needed) a special Winter skin care regimen.

At my house, I also have a wood stove to help keep my home warm, which also tends to really dry out the air. If my skin isn’t moisturized, it feels the effects of dehydration fairly quickly.

These are my favorite must-have hand creams for winterRead more
