Now it’s time to reconsider the skin and hair care products we’re using now and up the hydrating and moisturizing ante. Read on to find out the 17 Winter Skin and Hair Care Products You Need Now! We’ll get you through this winter, we promise. And your hair and skin will look fabulous doing so.
philosophy Back to Nurture Replenishing Moisture Crème goes above and beyond any other facial moisturizer you’ve tried before. Simply perfect for the winter months, the crème helps replenish skin’s moisture levels with encapsulated hyaluronic acid and shea butter. Skin looks plump and smooth with anti-inflammatory magnolia bark extract and skin-renewing peptides. It also contains licorice root extract and vitamin F to revitalize skin’s natural, healthy radiance. The rich, soft texture absorbs quickly and provides long-lasting comfort, even for combination skin.
If you are looking for a hydrating moisturizer that you can use both morning or night, try KORA Organics Soothing Day and Night Cream. A soothing and restorative daily moisturizer with evening primrose oil, pomegranate, chamomile, olive and lavender nourish skin with plenty of antioxidant protection from vitamins and noni extract.

A new ingredient has made its way into the anti-aging skincare world, and it’s potent! AMOREPACIFIC PRIME RESERVE uses epigenetics and the brand’s 34 years of intensive green tea research to come up with a breakthrough formula and delivery system in anti-aging skincare. The innovative ingredient (Absoluchin 228K) and revolutionary delivery system (AP 10 Bioemulsion) awaken skin by enhancing skin cells with epigenetic principles. Absoluchin 228K, a new green tree tea species named Jangwon No. 3, was found to produce super catechin containing EGCG3, chlorophyll, carotenoid and amino acids that would prolong cell life, repair skin DNA and reproduce new proteins to fight skin aging.
Absoluchin 228K can take anywhere from 14-24 years to cultivate, test and register into skincare, making it a rare and pricey ingredient. For optimal delivery, AP 10 Bioemulsion, a unique bioparticle that is is fermented with microorganisms that produce glycolipids, was used for faster and superior delivery of Absoluchin 228K to the skin. Available at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman stores for a whopping $750!
