The 5 Best Face Moisturizers for Chapped Winter Skin According to ‘BA’ Staffers
“What is the best face moisturizer for dry skin?” I Slacked the Bon Appètit product-recommendation channel recently. At the time my cheeks were as dry and flaky as the desiccated coconut I’d just sprinkled over my yogurt. All the mask-wearing and brutal winter winds had sucked the life from my face (and elbows and hands, but they aren’t on Zoom calls all day). My question hung there; between a silicone challah mold takedown and a green chile jam endorsement, I thoroughly expected crickets. What do a bunch of food writers and editors—who spend meaningful parts of their days trying to avoid describing dishes as ‘moist’—have to say about skin care? Turns out, a lot! My Slack was pinging off the hook with suggestions for the best face moisturizer for dry skin, so I decided to share the advice with the world. From the lip balm that goes the extra mile to grandma’s favorite night cream, these are the moisturizers the BA staff swears by.
