We all know winter weather can be extremely drying for our skin and hair. Due to less humidity in the air, your skin needs extra help retaining its moisture. With these organic products, you’ll stay moisturized all winter long. Here is a full roundup of the best tried and tested organic products to stock up on this winter.
One Love Organics Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm – $49
A cult favorite, One Love’s proclaimed “wonder balm” will have you in awe of its ability to hydrate even the driest skin. With standout ingredients like mango butter and chia seed extract, this balm makes for an incredibly nourishing night cream.
Vapour Organic Beauty Lux Organic Lip Conditioner, $20
Touting a USDA certified organic seal and nothing but 5-star reviews anywhere you look, does this product even need an explanation? Top-notch. You need it. Treat yourself (and your lips).
John Masters Organics, Pomegranate Facial Nourishing Oil, $30
Pomegranate oil deeply penetrates the skin’s outer layer while being ultra-hydrating. With a total of 12 organic plant and essential oils, this face oil is an ideal day moisturizer for extremely dry skin.
Tata Harper, Moisturizing Mask, $115
Either used overnight once a week or daily for 10-15 minutes, this mask will restore dry, stressed skin. With hyaluronic acid and a “MoistureMolecule Complex,” it’s sure to both replenish and retain moisture for your dehydrated skin.
Vapour Organic Beauty, Replenish 100% Organic Nail and Cuticle Oil, $32
Cracked cuticles may be one of the most easily forgotten effects of the cold on your skin. Used nightly, this quick-drying oil will hydrate your cuticles and prevent any future fraying.
Botanics, Organic Body Butter, $12.99
A shea butter based body butter is a dry skin essential, and this Botanics one delivers. Low priced and non-greasy, this will be your new favorite post-shower product for winter.
Heritage Store, Rosewater & Glycerin Spray, $10
Glycerin is a humectant, meaning it retains moisture by drawing water molecules from the air into the skin’s outer layer and forms a protective barrier. While glycerin in this all-over spray hydrates, rosewater soothes dry skin and smells heavenly for an added bonus.
Captain Blankenship, Mermaid Hair Oil, $23.99
Ideal for winter frizz, this hair oil works as a hydrating addition to your daily routine. Have cold weather-induced dandruff? Due to the kukui nut oil, you can also use this oil as a deep treatment to relieve an itchy scalp.
Herbivore, Moon Fruit Superfruit Night Treatment, $58
A fruit enzyme night treatment that smells as good as it looks, this gel-like product will restore and hydrate dry, uneven skin. It’s also a nice change with exotic ingredients like prickly pear for antioxidants and indigo root powder as an anti-inflammatory.
Per Purr Silky Soap, Shea Butter & Roses, $26
With the help of Cymbopogon martini oil, or palmarosa, this soap helps treat dry skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Shea butter, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, and essential oils of geranium and damask rose are among the soap’s other deeply nourishing ingredients.
John Masters Organics, Calendula Hydrating and Toning Mask, $26
Balancing for all skin types, this overnight mask both hydrates and tones. Star ingredient calendula is a soothing, anti-inflammatory moisturizer that works well for even the most sensitive skin.
One Love Organics, Vitamin E Eye Balm, $49
A quintessential luxury overnight eye cream, One Love really knows how to pack top-notch ingredients into their products. Hydrating and firming thanks to the vitamin E and sea kelp respectively, dry skin and fine lines don’t stand a chance.
BeautyCounter, Citrus Mimosa Hand Cream, $30
Lightweight thanks to aloe leaf juice, this hand cream will moisturize without leaving behind any sticky residue. The citrus scent is also a nice pick-me-up in the middle of winter.
RMS Beauty, Raw Coconut Cream, $18
We’ve all seen the meme. Dry skin? Coconut oil. Frizzy hair? Coconut oil. Boyfriend acting up? You guessed it, coconut oil. While this product really does seem like magic, it gets even better as RMS’ exclusive version is harvested using a modern processing technique that makes it noncomedogenic (it won’t clog pores!). So go ahead, slather this coconut oil on your entire life with confidence.
