Have you noticed that your skin has become incredibly dry in the past few weeks? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Cooler temperatures always affect the moisture of your skin, especially on your face, hands, and feet. As a result, cracking, flaking, and redness are all side effects as winter weather sweeps in.

It also doesn’t help that as the temperature drops outside, we’re turning up the heat inside, which also causes the skin to dry out. Thankfully, the Urban Body Laser team has assembled their Winter Survival Kit so ensure your skin receives the tender loving care it deserves. Check out our top picks:
We recommend using this in the morning and evening to regenerate the skin’s protective film, or any time after bathing, showering or shaving.
This helps calm and soothe very dry skin with powerful antioxidant oils from blueberry, red raspberry, and calendula along with barrier-restoring natural lipids. Our manager, Janiece, swears by it! In fact, she loves applying this to her hands and lips before bed.
Quench Plus – Hydrating Plumper

This anti-aging hydrator is perfect for under your mineral makeup to leave you with not only a photo finish but also a silky feel. Can be used upon waking and/or before bed.
Pep Up Gel
Give your skin a jumpstart every morning with this amplified Anti-Aging Serum. It’s formulated with a 10-peptide blend to specifically target aging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. This radiance-boosting formula with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid makes your skin look and feel younger. Light-reflecting pigments diminish imperfections, improve the appearance of redness, and brighten sallow tones.
Regenerating Cream
Pro-Derm Regenerating Cream has been formulated to moisturize, regenerate, and soothe sensitive skin while also protecting against the harsh winter elements.
Hydrating Herbal Mask 

Use this 1-2x a week to restore moisture. This herbal blended mask saturates skin with rehydrating ingredients to immediately provide moisture and nourishment.
This has one of the highest peptide concentrations available, enriched with first grade ingredients especially selected for skin restoration, protection, moisturizing and lifting. Plus it’s renown for its anti-aging compounds as well, helping your skin hydrate while also fighting the signs of aging (win win!).
