Cold-Weather Serums for Every Skin Type

There’s a point in late fall edging into winter that skin can get so dry, it seems like everything you slather on just disappears into the sharp, cold air. At that point the solution seems to be to keep applying more and more product, but over-applying too much of one product can clog your skin and can block pores, leading to other issues. 

According to many skincare experts, layering an intensely hydrating serum with strong active ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins C and E, and Peptides before your day or night cream can multiply and boost the efficacy of ingredients in both products in a way that applying only one product does not. One ingredient can make up for what another lacks, and proper layering can provide an extra boost of hydrating cushion that slows down water loss in your complexion.

Below, read on for our best cold-weather serum recommendations to lock moisture in and keep dryness out!
