Steal This: My Must-Have Moisturizer for Super Dry Skin


The cold, dry air of winter has already begun to ravage my skin but I have the perfect antidote to my winter skin woes. And yours too! My skin is dry on a good day but in winter I have super dry skin and that, we can’t abide!

The Pixi Beauty Hydrating Milky Mist is on my Must-Have, Holy Grail Beauty Products list and today, I’m going to tell you why.

Combat Dry Winter Skin With Pixi Beauty’s Hydrating Milky Mist

I love a beauty product that I can use all year long and this lightweight moisturizer is perfect for winter and summer months. In the summer I use it as a standalone and during the winter, I use it as part of my layered skincare regimen. What is a layered regimen? Applying more than one product intended for the same use for extra oomph. You know how you layer your clothes to stay warmer when it’s cold out? This is the same thing. I layer moisturizers to make sure my super dry skin is properly hydrated.


Winter Skincare: Hydrating Milky Mist

Packed with good-for-your-skin ingredients, Hydrating Milky Mist is an excellent and inexpensive skincare choice for winter weary skin. It contains provitamin A, vitamins B1, B2, and B6 and a healthy dose of hyaluronic acid to seal in moisture. The mist is super fine and lightweight and the fragrance is mild and wonderful.

Caring For My Super Dry Skin In Winter

For my daytime regimen, I first apply my serum, followed by the Milky Mist, and then I apply a heavier moisturizer. If I’m heading outside for the day, I’ll also apply a sunscreen after the mist.

For my nighttime regimen, I again apply my serum first, then the Milky Mist, then eye cream, and finally my nighttime moisturizer.

Throughout the day in winter, I simply spritz whenever I remember to, which is usually around the time that my lips start to feel dry. Let me explain. When my lips get dry, it’s a reminder to drink some water and apply lip balm. Then, of course, since I’m hydrating my insides, I also hydrate my outsides. See? Makes sense right? Right.

I really like this one as an all-day moisture mist because it’s so fine and lightweight that it doesn’t disturb any makeup that I may be wearing. Perfection.

How to Fight Dry Skin in Winter

  • Hydrate from the inside first. Drink plenty of water throughout the day.
  • Eliminate dry air at home with a humidifier. I prefer cool mist humidifiers especially for my bedroom.
  • Moisturize day and night. When it comes to adding moisture, twice is nice.
  • Seal in moisture with layers. Add a moisturizing mist to your regimen and lock in that extra moisture by layering your daily moisturizer over it.
  • For extreme added hydration, use a facial steamer a few times a week.

I ran out of my first bottle a few weeks back and I’d been using a different mist as a substitute but things just ain’t the same. So when Pixi Beauty had a buy one, get one half off sale, I pounced and bought two. I shall never run out again! 

The Hydrating Milky Mist is available at Pixi Beauty and at Target. Get you some darling! I mean it.
