The winter weather and constant switching from being in cold air outside to a heated indoors can wreak havoc on your skin, no matter your age. So, we found some skin care products, from moisturizers and cleansers to balms, oils, and healing gels, that will work for the whole family. Newborns, teens, adults, and even grandparents can use these products from Johnson’s, BEB Organic, miniOrganic, and Vivaiodays to show their skin a little TLC all year long.
Back By Popular Demand!
After a nearly 3-year hiatus, Johnson’s brought back the fan-favorite Baby Creamy Oil with Aloe & Vitamin E ($3.99) last July due to consumer demand. If that doesn’t tell you how great this moisturizer is, maybe this will: It’s paraben-, phthalate-, sulfate-, and dye-free due to Johnson’s total brand relaunch last year. The company is now being 100-percent transparent about the ingredients in its products, and is using more naturally derived (and fewer total) components. The non-greasy formula of the creamy oil absorbs quickly—and it’s great for the whole family!
For Preemies—and Proud Mamas
Created specifically for the delicate skin of premature babies, the nutrient-rich BEB Organic Silky Cream ($68) and Nourishing Oil ($52) pack a super-moisturizing one-two punch when used together—and since they were created for preemie skin, they’re super gentle and NICU-safe. For moms who need a little extra moisture in the winter, use the Silky Cream at night to relieve dry skin followed by the Nourishing Oil to lock in moisture. And if pregnancy has caused hormonal acne, or your little one has infant acne, apply some Healing Gel ($64), which is great for treating break outs, healing eczema, and minimizing scars.
This One’s for the Dads—and Teens
A super-gentle moisturizer, miniOrganic’s Superfine Jojoba ($38) can be used from cradle to parenthood. Use it on babies during infant massage, to relieve cradle cap, or add a few drops to the bath. Meanwhile, moms can use it as makeup remover and for treating cuticles and nails. What we’re most excited about is dads and teens can use it, too! Encourage your hubby to use it post-shave as a soothing balm. And the certified organic, vegan, cruelty-free moisturizer is gentle enough to use if you or your teen has acne-prone skin.
Old Remedies, New Uses
Inspired by proven, centuries-old remedies from various countries, Vivaiodays Rose Geranium Cleansing Water ($14) takes its cue from Zulu women healers, who use Rose Geranium leaves as a treatment. While formulated as a sanitizer for easy cleanup on the go, just add a bit to a cotton pad and use it as oil-free makeup remover. It’s ophthalmologist- and dermatologist-tested, plus gluten- and cruelty-free, and certified vegan. Bonus: For every Vivaiodays product sold, the company donates money to fund a day of school for a deserving student somewhere in the world.
