During the cold and dry winter months, there are some beauty rules you must follow to keep your skin smooth and your hair healthy. Thankfully, there are plenty of hydrating products out there to help. And while high-end moisturizers and balms can work wonders, you don’t need to break the bank to soothe your cold-weather skin woes. The following five winter beauty products are highly effective — and budget friendly!

For Luscious Lips

A great lip soother doesn't have to be expensive. Try Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal for a week, and you’ll notice smother, more supple lips that remain moist for hours.

For Creamy Color

Choose a full-coverage, highly pigmented lipstick that melts into your lips, like NYX Cosmetics Butter Lipstick to create a satiny texture that’s buttery soft.

For Smooth Daytime Skin

Wearing moisturizer is always a must, even if you have oily skin. A lightweight lotion like L’Oréal Paris Ideal Moisture Normal Skin Day Lotion pairs hydrating power with SPF 25.

For Hydrated Hair

Think a reconstructing hair mask is an investment? Considering a budget-friendly option like L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm can repair up to a year’s worth of damage in just one use, that's some serious value. It mends split ends, strengthens weak strands and smoothes damaged cuticles instantly.

For an Overnight Glow

A wrinkle-reducing night cream is crucial during the winter. One like Garnier Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream provides intensive moisture while you sleep, without feeling heavy or clogging pores.
