You’ve swapped sandals for boots and sundresses for sweaters. Now it’s time to switch over your skincare wardrobe, starting with the cold weather MVP.: moisturizer. Think of it as a coat for your face. A denim jacket may have sufficed on those late summer evenings, but you need something heavier now, perhaps an oversized wool topper or jaunty shearling jacket. In other words, that featherlight gel you daubed during heatwaves isn’t going to cut it anymore. To help you find your perfect new “face coat,”  we’ve rounded up 16 tried and true moisturizers for every skin type. (And in case you need an actual coat coat, we’ve got you covered here, too.)

It only launched two years ago, yet “The Cream” has already reached cult status. Kate Bosworth and Ashely Graham have declared they’re obsessed with it, and famed facialist Joanna Czech swears by it, too.
