Your skin will thank you.
Luckily, because daily trips to the zoo aren’t all that realistic, the moisturizers that have landed on my desk in recent weeks are not playing around when it comes to parched skin. Product keywords include but are not limited to: rich, hydrating, soothing, drench, cloud, hyaluronic, rehab, and so on. So, as we head into the coldest days of the year, I’m on a constant (massage-upwards) rotation with these creams. The best part of all? Trip to the zoo not required.
A moisture “cushion” sounds like exactly what our skin needs on those windy, cold days. Dr. Dennis Gross’ gel-cream formula immediately makes skin look dewy and uses Japanese marine algae to keep moisture in and smooth out fine lines and dullness.
Think of this formula as a three-in-one: the gel moisturizer can be used alone after cleansing, over your normal day or night lotion (if you’re combatting really parched skin), or alone as a five-minute moisture mask. My personal preference is to use it as a sleeping mask on top of my night skincare—I wake up with a baby-smooth face.
