If you haven't completely accepted that summer is officially over, your dehydrated complexion is here to remind you. As the temperatures get crisper, the air gets drier, vaccuming up all of your skin's moisture. Thus, the lightweight moisturizer you've been using to get through last season's heatwaves is no longer going to cut it. It's time to swap in a thicker moisturizer that your skin can drink up to get a much-needed dose of hydration, along with adressing your year-round complexion concerns. Here, we've rounded up eight all-star rich moisturizers that will do more than just get the job done.
