*This article is in partnership with Olay, however, all opinions are mine.
For all of winter’s sweeping seasonal highs (fireside hangs, snowy walks, and ice-skating), there are a few less pleasant side effects to note. Enter the invasion of dry, itchy skin that’s currently settling in for the long haul. Winter can wreak havoc on your skin and it can feel like there’s no escape: Cold, blustery conditions outside can leave your skin feeling raw, while indoor heat zaps moisture from the air and from your skin.
Switch to a heavy moisturizer: the Olay Regenerist Ultra Rich Moisturizer
We’ve established that everyone needs a good and affordable moisturizer in their daily skincare routine, right? However, dry & dull winter skin needs a little more love in the hydration department. New to the Red Jar lineup, Olay Regenerist Ultra Rich Moisturizer has been a total game-changer this winter season. True to its name, it’s rich and surprisingly non-greasy. The first time I applied it, my skin drank it right up and it left an instant glow that even my Mr. noticed right away. I now use the moisturizer both in the morning & the evening. I love the dewy finish and looks great under makeup or on its own. Days when I go makeup-free, you’d think I’m wearing highlight because of the dewy payoff. Now going on my second month of using it, there are few key things I noticed about the moisturizer: My skin feels healthy, bright, much smoother and stays hydrated all day long.
Remember when I said ingredients matter? Formulated with a shea butter blend, niacinamide, & peptides, this combo is what makes the rich luxurious-feel moisturizer make your skin glow.
Shea Butter Blend: Shea butter has been used as a cosmetic ingredient for like ever. With its very high moisturizing properties, it can also be smoothing & soothing to one’s skin. Olay has formulated a special shea butter blend to penetrate into the skin and absorb quickly, so you’re not left with a greasy finish.
Niacinamide: It helps to promote surface cells turnover and strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier
Peptides: Skincare with peptides can help replenish what your skin is losing. The result is more plump and bouncy skin.
This powerhouse blend of ingredients works hard to battle dry & dull winter skin without the greasy payoff.
On top of having a great moisturizer for your skin, there is so much more you can do to keep your skin hydrated this winter season. Take a peek below, they are all super simple and easy to integrate into your routine!
Add Moisture to Your Home

Limit Shower Time and Temperature
Taking a long, hot shower feels good when you’re cold, but it’ll lead to even drier skin. #GUILTY It’s best to keep showers short and warm in the winter. Don’t forget to moisturize after, of course.
Change Out of Wet Clothes Quickly
On nice winter days, we can spend hours playing outdoors but it can be inevitable to get your clothes wet. Wearing wet clothes and shoes can further irritate your skin and cause itchiness. If gloves, socks, and pants become wet, be sure not to stay in them too long and remove clothing as soon as possible.
Drink Up and Eat Naturally Hydrating Foods
Increasing your water intake (within reason) will not only help with hydration but it’s also good for your skin. Along with incorporating good-for-you foods that naturally hydrate your body like avocado, salmon, sweet potatoes and water-rich fruits. All nourishing foods to give you that glowy radiant skin.
