During the winter, dry, dull skin can lead to all sorts of issues...

...which is why we like to pamper our dermis when the mercury drops and also address any damage our skin may have sustained in the glory days of summer. (Although we do miss you, sun!) Here’s what’s on our editor’s list of winter skincare gotta-have-’ems.

1. Yon-Ka Paris Age Correction Stimulastine Nuit Restructuring Wrinkle Remover with dill is part of an anti-aging duo that also includes a day component ($110 each, sold exclusively in spas, 1 800 361 1263; phytoderm.com). While the day cream protects and counteracts the deteriorating of elastin fibres, the night cream (pictured) provides an anti-aging boost that strengthens the very structure of the skin, naturally.

2. Luminaze Skin Brightening Facial Cleanser ($28) and Intense Brightening and Correcting Night Cream ($120, at The Bay; luminaze.com). The cleanser uses the patented Luminaze Enzyme Complex to treat hyper-pigmentation and transform lacklustre skin while the night cream visibly brightens the skin overnight, also hydrating with soothing ingredients like Shea butter and jojoba oil.

3. Annemarie Börlind’s Intensive Care Capsules ($65.99, at retailers across Canada) are ideal for taking in your carryon when you decide to escape the cool weather and head somewhere exotic. The capsules are ideal for treating dehydration and sun damage because they’re infused with ceramides that attract and retain moisture, plus vitamins A and E to fight the free radical damage that causes premature aging.
