  • To get the softest-looking skin you've had in years, wrap it in layers of these moisture-boosting creams, oils and sprays

    As the cold weather rages on, it gets tougher and tougher to find products that provide lasting moisture to your skin. If you thought that your skin had plenty to contend with during the summer months (sun damage, excess oil) just you wait till winter comes around. The damaging rays are still there, plus biting winds, central heating, rain and moisture-sapping cooler temperatures. Good times.

    For that reason, it’s important to arm yourself with hydrating buys that ward off windburn, parched cheeks and all those other beauty issues that crop up in the colder, darker months. We’ve rounded up the very best, from an oil that plumps and tans dull skin to a bath milk that soothes dry limbs back to their supple, gleaming best.
