The Under-$20 Drugstore Skin Buys You Need This Winter

It's that time of the year when no amount of scarf-face wrapping can really protect you from the whipping winds that attack you on your way to work. And then, once you do get to the office, the blasting heat sucks any remaining moisture out of your face and hands.
But keeping your skin from shriveling up like a raisin doesn't have to come at the expense of your whole paycheck. Ahead, the moisturizers, oils, and scrubs our editors keep on their desks — that you can find at the drugstore on your commute.
Check out our secret to smooth, glowing, summer-like skin, ahead.

Do yourself a favor and buy the biggest jug of lotion you can find, and keep it right next to your shower. (Smoothing it on while your skin is still damp locks in the moisture.) We love this coconut-infused formula, which keeps dryness and itchiness at bay.

A dry season MUST, Aquaphor is one of those things that really works for everything — lips, cuticles, elbows, we even put it on our eyes or cheeks as a gloss.

Another editor favorite, this moisturizing oil replenishes your skin, makes legs and arms gleam, and effectively fades scars and hyperpigmentation during the process.

This moisturizer works double duty: It coddles winter skin with cotton thistle while blueberry extracts keep free radicals from creating further damage.

But while moisturizing is important, make sure you don't neglect exfoliating, either. Sloughing off dry skin allows your products to penetrate better, and keeps your face looking glowy and fresh. The volcanic clay ingredient in this scrub goes one step further to really deep cleanse clogged pores.

Don't forget that your hair needs extra TLC in the winter, too. We love this deep hydrating mask, with olive and almond extracts, as a weekly treatment.
