While we love counting down to the holiday season, we are not a fan of how dry our skin gets as the weather gets cold.

TODAY Style is here to help! We asked celebrity experts, dermatologists and makeup artists to share their favorite products to stay hydrated this winter season. The best part? Everything can be found in the beauty aisle at your local drugstore.

“This foundation will bring moisture to your skin and plump it for 24 hours. That means a radiant, flawless, natural look thanks to the main ingredient: hyaluronic acid. Using a damp beauty blender, I like to apply it in an upward and outward motion. It’s a weightless, non-greasy, oil-free, non-comedogenic formula that won’t settle into fine lines. And it comes in 10 blendable shades,” said Brandy Gomez-Duplessis, a celebrity makeup artist and co-founder of Entitled Beauty.

“This primer will boost your skin making it look radiant and hydrated (and flawless and smooth) like you’ve been Photoshopped. The primer is infused with grape and vitamins A, C and E to nourish your skin with anti-aging benefits that will help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Apply the primer with a damp beauty blender by patting onto the entire face. Your makeup will last all day, keeping you selfie ready!” said Gomez-Duplessis, who has worked with Kerry Washington and Jennifer Aniston.

“To bring back dry, overexposed hair that has been soaking in the sun and pool this summer, I suggest this conditioner with apricot oil. Treat your hair to a deep-moisturizing conditioner that will help nourish it back to a soft, silky texture. Plus, it’s gentle on colored hair and there are no harsh sulfates or salt that will strip it,” said celebrity makeup artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis, whose clients include Erin Andrews, Allison Janney and Jordin Sparks.
