6 Things We’ve Recommended Before From Dermstore’s Winter-Essentials Sale

Dermstore is having a big sale on winter essentials right now with the code WINTER, which means discounts on some of the skin-care products that work best against dry, flaky skin and chapped lips. Here, we’ve included some of our favorites, including a First Aid Beauty serum for a quick shot of moisture and Stephanie Danler’s favorite moisturizer, Weleda Skin Food.

First Aid Beauty is one of Rio Viera-Newton’s go-to brands for healing dry, eczema-prone skin, and this serum is one of her winter essentials on days when her skin feels especially flaky and itchy: “This essentially acts as a shot of hydration, giving your skin a nice boost of moisture on days when just your moisturizer isn’t enough.”

Weleda Skin Food

A cure-all skin salve (and one of Strat’s best sellers) that Sweetbitter author Stephanie Danler calls “an all-purpose, completely natural moisturizer that I now keep in threes: bedside, car, and purse. Nary a chemical in sight, it’s sunflower-seed oil, avocado oil, and pansy extract, and nurtures as it dissolves into your skin.”

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

This deep-cleansing oil from Japan wound up on a list of Dermstore’s top-five best sellers early this year. The Cut’s Ashley Weatherford describes it as an “olive oil–based formula that melts waterproof makeup in a flash, and never dries out skin.”
