Every time a flake falls, newscasters go crazy telling us about how many inches to expect, how to avoid frostbite and windburn, or how to navigate through the hellish traffic. Winter weather—and how to deal with it—is often the top story on the nightly news, but where is that pertinent info on how to protect your sensitive skin from drying, freezing temps and those pesky free radicals? Below, you'll find our picks for the top-of-the-line moisturizers you need to get you through to spring:


Biggest Impact: While Nature Girl's Nature Face Cream ($65) may give you a little initial sticker shock, one application of this thick, rich cream will erase any hesitations. African shea butter, almond and borage oils, and sea algae extracts penetrate deep but don't feel weighty. The formula evens skin tone and protects against aging – all without the tautening effect cheaper moisturizers tend to have.

Most Scent-sational: Opening a jar of Norabloom Botanicals Heavy Dandelion Face Cream ($36) is like taking that first sip of piping hot Chai tea. Its aroma is rich and spicy, yet at the same time very clean-smelling. The formula is supercharged with jojoba and almond oils, and lactic and glycolic acids for ultimate hydration. The heavy cream is the perfect protector against whipping winds and frosty temperatures, keeping skin feeling like velvet despite the icky winter weather.

Most Eco-Spa Chic: Origins has long been known for its spa-worthy lineup of nourishing and renewing beauty products. The newest addition, Nourishing Face Lotion ($42.50), is 95 percent certified organic, so you can pronounce just about everything in the ingredients list. Shea butter, cocoa butter, sunflower, coconut oils, and vegetable glycerin join the patented Origins blend of clove, rose, lavendar, patchouli, and red thyme essential oils for the most spa-like experience you can have in your own bathroom. The feather-light formula absorbs quickly, so you can get to battling the elements ASAP.
