Yes, it's supposed to warm up this weekend, but then the temperature will plummet again. Into the teens! Plus, the heat is on in your building. And you always forget to wear gloves. All of this equals dry, unhappy skin. Take care of it with these editor-tested and -loved products.
The cooling hint of menthol, the unctuous shea butter and petrolatum formula; it's great for lips, wind-chapped noses, or dry cuticles. $1.35 at cvs.com.
Fans of Fresh Sugar's lip balm say that Nivea's, $2.39 at Walgreens, compares favorably. Also good on cuticles.
Endorsed by Shop-A-Matic editor and snowboarding enthusiast Diana Tsui, who says Pangaea Organic's Italian Red Mandarin is the best-smelling lip balm ever. $9.99 at Amazon.com.
If you want a dedicated cuticle product (and if you're not wearing gloves, you do), this oil soaks and smooths. Qtica Solid Gold Cuticle Oil Gel, $9.99 at qtica.com.
A good, basic everyday moisturizer, Clinique's Moisture Surge is $34 at clinique.com or sephora.com.
$250 is a lot for 1.7 ounces, but a little goes a long way with Lancôme's ultra-rich Secret de Vie Ultimate Cellular Reviving Crème. At bergdorfgoodman.com.
Eve Lom's wonderfully creamy makeup remover, $40 at SpaceNK.com, will melt makeup gently off your face.
L'Occitane's shea butter hand cream does what we thought impossible: moisturizes, yet does not leave greasy residue. The tubes are a perfect makeup-case size, too. $10 at drugstore.com.
Once a week, exfoliate. The Philosophy Microdelivery Peel two-part system uses a two-part gel-scrub system that warms as you massage it in, and visibly recharges skin texture. $65 at sephora.com.
Moroccan Oil's Hydrating Styling Cream is life-changing, especially if you blow-dry your hair. Be sparing; about half a pump will take care of shoulder-length hair. More than that is too heavy. It's $19.50 at Amazon.com, and while it's not officially sold at Ricky's stores, it can usually be found there.
Another killer moisturizer beloved by staff, Nars' Acqua Gel is $76 at neimanmarcus.com.
Caudalie's rich and enticingly named "Sorbet Cream" is $40 at Sephora.com.
You will smell so good after you put this face oil on, you will want to inhale yourself. Wear it at night, or during the day for that "my skin is so glowing, I don't need makeup" glow. $36 at nudeskincare.com.
$6.99 at Walgreens, this Neutrogena hair treatment undoes a lot of damage.
Chantecaille's Jasmine and Lily Healing Mask, $75 at chantecaille.com, calms and restores as well as smells delicious.
This gentle cleanser is from Iceland, where they know about cold-weather skin care. $28 at skyniceland.com.
