5 great products for winter skin care

Take care of yourself!

1. Bastide Hand Cream ($12)

Bastide, a small beauty product company based in Provence, uses locally harvested plants to make rich hand creams with the delicate scents of the French countryside, including lavender, orange blossom, and fig. Buy it at Bastide.

2. Harper + Ari Exfoliating Sugar Cubes ($24)

Instead of a greasy body scrub, bring these single-use cubes with you into the shower to scour your dry skin. Scents include coconut, peach, lemon, apricot, and blue raspberry. Just don't eat them. Buy it at Harper + Ari.

3. YourGoodSkin Day Cream ($13)

Wearing sunscreen is important during the cold months, especially if you ski or snowboard. This SPF 30 lotion is infused with green tea and vitamin C, and it "melts into the skin with the heft of a ­serious cream." Buy it at Walgreens.

4. Crème de la Mer Lip Balm ($60)

"One of the most lux­urious lip balms on the market, and also one of the most effective," La Mer's heavy-duty, mint-flavored salve will keep lips smooth and hydrated all day long. You'll feel special every time you use it, too. Buy it at Nordstrom.

5. Baxter of California After Shave Balm ($19)

Skin is at its most ­vulnerable right after a shave. Protect it from the winter wind with this hydrating balm made by Los Angeles' award-winning Baxter Finley Barber & Shop, which has made men's grooming products since 1965. Buy it at Amazon.
