The 8 Best Clean Moisturizers for Dry Winter Skin
With the way this cold weather is set up, your skin needs it.
Not that I've been outside or anything as of late, but when it's winter, my skin be knowing.
Aside from the frigid temperatures outside, the heat constantly blasting in my apartment has my skin parched and often flakier than a pie crust by morning.
Since I'm not someone who enjoys the ashy look (I'm much more of a dewy glow kinda gal), I'm always on the hunt for moisturizers that have nourishing formulas and can get the job done.
Thankfully, if you're more inclined to use clean products, there are a ton of options to choose from, and I've rounded up a few of my faves to share with you.
The eight best clean moisturizers for dry winter skin, ahead.
nyakio Baobab Youth-Infused Daily Defense Crème
I am obsessed with nyakio products because, quite honestly, they're just so good. This ultra-rich, ultra-thicc moisturizer is formulated with baobab oil straight from Ghana to leave your skin hydrated and blessed (amen) — even after a night of having the heat on full blast.

Humanrace Humidifying Cream
Pharrell's Humanrace line made waves when it launched fall, not just because he's a musical icon, but because he had the good sense to work with the brilliant Dr. Elena Jones to create products that work. The Humidifying Cream, which boasts squalane and snow mushroom, quickly became a fan favorite for its ability to instantly lock in moisture and keep skin dewy for hours.
