Consider yourself lucky if you haven’t been snowed in, frozen out, or sleeping in airports over the past month. The Polar Vortex has the majority of the country out cold—and from what we hear, has left their skin parched and chapped. Below, some food for thaw. HOLLY SIEGEL

THE DREAM CREAM
Caudalie Premier Cru la Crème Riche features the same active ingredients as the brand’s popular Premier Cru la Crème, with the addition of three deeply nourishing plant waxes: jojoba, mimosa, and sunflower. The buttery texture will soften your winter skin for up to 24 hours while providing benefits for fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and dullness. Plus, a little goes a long way, and the scent—derived from rose petals infused in an oak barrel—will give you a taste of springtime.

THE OVERNIGHT DELIGHT
Boscia Tsubaki Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask softens while you slumber. Using a blend of tsubaki (camellia) oil, rice bran oil, wakame (Japanese sea kelp), and the protein-rich amino acid serine, it seals in moisture while protecting against free radicals and reducing visible redness. Go ahead: hydrate while you hibernate.

THE BRIGHT EYE
GLAMGLOW BRIGHTMUD Eye Treatment is a tap-on, wipe-off eye mask that hydrates the eye area and helps absorb toxins—perfect after a late night at the airport or just to get rid of that bleary-eyed cold-weather look.

THE SOFTENING SERUM
During this time of year, those with oily or blemish-prone skin often have trouble finding a product to hydrate dry-winter skin without breaking them out. And ignoring the problem can actually lead to more oil production. Kate Somerville Quench Oil Free Hydrating Face Serum delivers antiaging and moisturizing benefits without clogging pores.

THE LIP LOCK
Dry lips are one of the most chronic winter-skin problems. Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment keeps them soft for up to 24 hours thanks to the natural humectants in sugar and other key ingredients such as vitamins C and E. You’ll be lip gloss-ready in no time.
