It’s that time of year again where, as the leaves dry out and fall, we too start to feel the effects of the drier weather in our skin. If you are like me, fall and winter are typically the time of year that I definitely feel the importance of my daily moisturizer. Those of us with mature skin need to be especially cognizant of the effects fall and winter might have upon us.
As we age, our skin’s oil production decreases, and there is a breakdown of elastic and collagen fibers. This results in the skin becoming drier and thinner with more laxity. Dermatologists recommend using moisturizers with hydrating hyaluronic acid, skin-barrier protecting ceramides, brightening niacinamide, and wrinkle-fighting retinol in their ingredient lists.
It is getting easier and easier to find products from companies that don’t test their products on animals or are altogether vegan without compromising on quality. Here at Prime Women, we always try to leave the world a better place, so here are some of our favorite cruelty-free moisturizers that will keep your skin looking glowy, radiant, and plump throughout the upcoming winter months.
Last summer, we liked this product so much that we made it a part of our ‘Prime Pick’ series. You can read it here: Honest Beauty Hydrogel Cream.
