ICYMI, it's less than a week until winter. And while the chilly season brings some blessings (see: hot chocolate and cashmere), it can also spell disaster for skin. Dryness and dehydration are both exacerbated by wild weather and overenthusiastic indoor heating, and can lead to flakiness and redness. If you deal with eczema, you'll know that irritating an already compromised skin barrier can make symptoms that much worse. As they say, the best defence is a good offence, which is where healing and hydrating products come in.
One of our favourite moisturisers, The Body Shop's best-selling Vitamin E Moisture Cream, is infused with hyaluronic acid and wheatgerm oil to nourish and protect. Of course, being The Body Shop, many of the ingredients are hand-crafted and sourced from small-scale communities, including Ghanaian shea butter, and Mexican aloe vera. Better yet, this super-hydrating moisturiser has just been given a designer makeover, courtesy of Eley Kishimoto. (You may remember the British design house for this sell-out Vans collaboration.)

Cute, right? There's no need to take our word on this winter moisturiser's legendary ability to ward off dryness—according to the brand, one is sold every 18 seconds. For extra benefits, layer a moisture-boosting serum underneath. The Byrdie Australia team is partial to Ultraceuticals' Ultra B2 Hydrating Serum ($89), and Estée Lauder's Advanced Night Repair, ($150).
