I'm too scared to go back to my Dermatologist because I haven't been following his rules. So going to enlist all the professional and amateur experts here. Things to know: I have winter dry skin, redness happening and please no placenta based products (that's a real thing)
  1. Argan oil
    Suggested by @element75
  2. Kiehl's Skin Rescuer
    I use both. I use the Argan oil all the time and then this when my redness kicks in.
    Suggested by @element75
  3. Coconut oil or olive oil are well known natural moisturizers, best for those that are not acne prone. Otherwise Vanicream (comes in a big tub that lasts forever) is what I prescribe my patients. It's hypoallergenic, free of dyes and parabens and VERY moisturizing. It's a medical grade moisturizer.
    Suggested by @aminam
  4. If you can't find Vanicream, Cetaphil is the next best in terms of quality and minimal amount of chemical crap.

  5. Dermalogica

    Ummm, so I'm told. Not that I would personally know.

  6. It depends on the climate, what type of skin you have, etc. I have oily skin and live in the south where it doesn't get too cold. Neutrogena oil-free moisture is plenty for me. In fact, I love the Walmart/Equate knock-off even more cause it's cheaper and it works.

  8. I don't have moisturizer suggestion, but I would definitely recommends you check out Caroline Hirons' blog. She is a skincare guru and I'm sure you will be able to find something on there to help you. Following her advice has completely changed my skin. She's at carolinehirons.com

  9. I just started using a mix of coconut oil + Glossier's priming moisturizer, and it's 👌🏽

  10. Cerave PM is a very dependable drugstore pick. Aesop has some great soothing/hydrating products and they smell amazing. For something natural/organic try this guy, it's a game changer: http://www.live-live.com/Bee-Yummy-Skin-Food-2oz_p_500.html

  11. Drunk Elephant's Virgin Marula Oil
    Received a free sample at work and have been buying it ever since. $72 but lasts a long time.

  12. I like the Cetaphil face moisturizer spf 15
    It's light and dissolves quickly into my skin.

  13. For the most part I use coconut oil. For dry winter skin I switch over to Egyptian Magic which is kind of like lip balm for your face, made with beeswax, Royal jelly and olive oil. AND if you have the funds Jouer daily repair oil is amazing. I wrote a list about my skincare you can check out here! BEAUTY ROUTINE!

  14. CeraVe am (sunscreen) for day. CeraVe pm for night.

  15. My Mom is a Mary Kay Director, I use their moisturizer and it's great. Plus it's non-comedogenic.
    Suggested by @brendang
  16. Oil of Olay Complete for sensitive skin
    Suggested by @kate81
  17. Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream
    E52411eb b016 40bd bfdf 29154e0b2e29
    This stuff is the love of my life. The day tint is the best tinted moisturizer because it doesn't cover up my freckles, blends well and lasts. The cream is the best intense moisturizer - I use it at night, and it goes from healing those super dry patches in winter to keeping my skin healthy and not greasy in summer. I would legit marry Dr. Jart If I could.

  18. "Waterless" face cleansers
    I live in a cold, dry climate and have very dry skin. I found that actually what made the biggest difference was changing my face cleanser. I have been using Ultrabland by Lush for the past month and it has made a huge difference. Other brands have similar "waterless" products and I do know there are some more natural equivalents.

  19. Glossier Priming Moisturizer
    B74483d4 6878 47ed a816 e852ddd25ae6
    It's a buildable hydrating cream that I LIVE BY. The line was started by Emily Weiss (of Into the Gloss) and they have this great skincare line. Some days my skin needs more hydration than others and it isn't greasy and soaks in fast and if I need more, I add more. It's absolutely wonderful.

  20. I love basic Aveeno daily moisturizer w SPF15. It takes care of dryness, absorbs immediately and easily, and makes me feel like I'm protecting my skin 🌞
    Suggested by @vagina
  21. Also anything Kate Somerville
    Suggested by @natasha
  22. Dermalogica active moist
    Best face moisturizer on the market. No oily residue, absorbs well, light, life changing.
    Suggested by @natasha
  23. Avalon Organics lavender daily moisturizer
    I'm allergic to a lot of moisturizers but not this one! It's rich, soothing, and smells great. I can't recommend enough - this stuff is my life
    Suggested by @emilyr
  24. Caudalie's Moisturizing Sorbet
    073905e6 f475 4633 b556 c7e84c88eea8
    their whole line is pricy but so worth it. the sorbet brought my skin back to life when it was really dry and I've never looked back.

  25. oils of any kinds are gonna help your face---you just gotta find the one that's best for you: argan, almond, jojoba, coconut, marula, etc., or just plain mineral, and don't forget the sunscreen. It may not seem really warm or it may be cloudy, but those UV Rays will get to you!!! They are monsters. 🔆❌

  26. My facialist introduced me to Hylunia Healing & Restoring Cream and it has changed my life. Skin is hydrated and supple but not oily.

  27. Botanics Hydrating Day Cream- All Bright

    Last winter was really rough on my skin but as soon as I switched to this moisturizer (and the corresponding face wash) my dryness and redness cleared right up and I haven't had any issues since. I totally recommend it!

    Perfect for the winter it's a cream more than a lotion

  31. Cetaphil moisturizer
    I have really sensitive skin and cetaphil works the best for me! I also recommend staying hydrated and exfoliating (e.g. olive oil + raw sugar) daily! I used coconut oil as a moisturizer for a bit, but my skin didn't take it very well 🙄

  32. When I was working in Utah, it was v cold and dry & I lost my face wash, so I just started washing my face with coconut oil and warm water - and then putting le Mieux Bio Cell Rejuvenating cream on as a moisturizer. Worked wonders for me. Also love Eminence moisturizers, there's a rose one that supports breast cancer research - that's the best one.
