The winter has finally arrived and cold temperatures are beginning to settle in. During this season, everyone’s skin has a tendency to dry out. It is important that each and every individual assembles a good skincare routine for themselves, in order to maintain a hydrated and glowing complexion. 

The Mario Badescu Drying Lotion is an acne spot treatment that is designed to work fast and effectively. Ingredients in this treatment include salicylic acid and calamine. 

“I genuinely like the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion because it clears up my skin almost overnight. I love how it is so easy to just put it on and wake up the next morning basically acne free” freshman Nicole Ensmann said. 

Clean and Clear makes sure that their moisturizers are oil free, and also fight against acne. 

“The Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturizer is an amazing item to buy if you have dry skin, especially during this winter season. I also really like how it is completely oil free” Angelica Fiscella said. 

This product packs rich ingredients into the skin in order to maximize moisture within the facial area. 

Something to also acknowledge is that the Ulta Beauty Radiant Skin Daily Moisturizer helps treat fine lines and aging spots. 

“Ulta Beauty’s Radiant Skin Daily Moisturizer made my skin feel smooth and hydrated unlike any other product I have used in the past” Izzy Gudin stated. 

This moisturizer is specifically designed to target the texture of one’s skin. It helps soften patches of skin that are dealing with the harsh weather conditions.

The Burt’s Bees Facial Scrub should be paired with a strong moisturizer to help balance out the minerals that are being taken and added to the facial area. This scrub leaves the skin feeling luscious.

“Burt’s Bees Facial Scrub helps exfoliate my skin to remove any dry patches, resulting in a smooth and soft texture,” said freshman Elle Hunt. 

This product helps strip the skin of unnecessary oils and helps to decrease the amount of blackheads that are present on the face.  

The Creme de la Mer Moisturizer is an extremely rich cream that soothes and hydrates the skin. This is one of the most ideal products for someone who is in search of something that can heal the effects of dry skin. It leaves the face feeling vibrant and youthful 

“My Dad would always buy Creme de la Mer for my Mom for Christmas. The sales woman at the counter would give me free samples that I didn’t realize until later on were like gold. To this day, the product is a staple in my everyday routine” English teacher Ms. Alexandra Pfleging stated. 

Differin Gel is a clear acne spot treatment that is highly recommended by dermatologists. When applied in a very thin layer to problematic areas, positive results can be seen almost overnight. It is amazing because it does not not dry out the skin like many other products of its kind do.

“I have heard very good things about Differin Gel, such as its ability to minimize pores. Although I have not personally used this acne treatment, it is definitely something that I plan on trying in the near future” Nicole Enmann also said. 

Another moisturizer that definitely deserves to be mentioned is Desonide. This product is very strong, and needs a dermatologist recommended prescription to order to obtain. It should be applied to the least amount of areas as possible, and only on problematic spots.
