It’s never fun to feel like your fighting a losing battle with your skin. Not to mention it’s undeniably frustrating for it to still break out in blemishes after you give it nothing but love and attention.

Between whipping winds and plummeting temperatures, the winter remains one of the most challenging times of the year to manage skincare woes. Luckily, there are a few winter-proof moisturizers that you can turn to when your skin requires something hydrating yet gentle.

Keep scrolling to get the 411 on three moisturizers that will not only help to keep your face in tiptop shape but won’t leave you with new breakouts. Plus, all three formulas have earned the Clean at Sephora badge, meaning they are free of parabens, sulfates and other nasty ingredients.
