Keeping your skin hydrated year-round can be a challenge, but it's even tougher in the cold winter months. Decreased humidity in the air can make your skin go from supple and moisturized to flaky and dehydrated seemingly overnight. Luckily, as long as you seek out the right ingredients, you can find a hydrating product that works wonders.

Amazon's own in-house skin-care line, Belei, offers an impressive solution to this common skin woe, in the form of its Daily Hydrating Duo Skin Care Starter Kit (Buy It, $55,, which comes with both a moisturizer and a skin-brightening serum. Reviewers — especially those with finicky combination skin types — say that the two products leave their skin "feeling very hydrated and fresh." (

The formulations of these products include several impressive ingredients. The serum includes ferulic acid, which is a powerful antioxidant and often used in anti-aging products, says Debra Jaliman, M.D., board-certified New York City dermatologist. It's paired with vitamin C and vitamin E — which work together to brighten and even skin tone. "Ferulic acid stabilizes those two vitamins and makes the product work even more efficiently," explains Dr. Jaliman. "All three are antioxidants and support each other."

The moisturizer relies on ingredients such as hydrating hero hyaluronic acid (which helps skin retain moisture) and aloe, which helps calm irritated skin. "It's anti-inflammatory so it gets rid of redness," says Dr. Jaliman. "It's soothing and adds hydration to the skin." The formula also contains shea butter, which is great for hydrating flaky, cracked, and dry patches, says Dr. Jaliman. Though, if your skin is on the oily side, this may not be the best ingredient for you, she adds. (

Together, these ingredients really help combat dryness, according to many Amazon reviewers. "I have combination skin, so I'm really oily around my T-zone and dry everywhere else," one wrote. "This hydrating moisturizer has definitely provided the needed moisture to my problem dry areas on my face. I also like the fact my T-Zone doesn't feel super greasy after using this product."

Others add that the products are particularly effective for sensitive skin. "I have dry, mature skin — too often heavier creams make my skin break out," wrote one five-star reviewer. "This is light, almost fragrance-free, and works well under make-up. How a moisturizer behaves during harsh winter weather is the real test for me. This one is a winner — my face remains moisturized during the course of a day, and I don't see dry patches anywhere."

The cold, dry weather is already here, but you don't have to be resigned to the skin issues that always seem to come along with the season. For $55, Belei's Daily Hydrating Duo might just be the solution to your skin's dreams.
