Winter skin struggles are real — tight, parched, flaky, irritated faces and limbs can feel impossible to remedy during the chilliest months of the year. I remember the first time my go to skincare lineup felt inadequate in January and I went on a mission to find the magic formulas to keep my skin hydrated, clear, and glowing regardless of the weather. And after a lot of research, trial and error, I found sanctuary in face oils, serums, and balms. These three, praised by many skincare experts, kept my winter skin healthy and happy, and I’ve been a religious user ever since, always testing new formulas and new brands as the skincare world innovates at an impressive pace.
For today’s skincare story, I want to share 3 of my current crushes in winter skincare: face oils, serums, balms by the lovely and amazing Parisian skincare favorite, Darphin, that have kept my face soft and clear all winter.
