Gigi Hadid’s favourite moisturiser is from this range, and if it’s good enough for her, it’s good enough for me, says beauty contributor Lucy Partington. 

Anybody who knows me is more than aware that I am something of a skincare obsessive. And while I do get excited about new products, ingredients and technology, I also know what I like when it comes to my own personal routine.

Speak to any dermatologist or skin expert and they’ll tell you that consistency is key; it’s no good swapping and changing what you’re using every couple of days or weeks because that’ll just cause more issues. So while I do try new things, I always try to stick to the same type of products – that means my morning routine will always include vitamin C and sunscreen, and my evening routine is made up of cleanser, some sort of vitamin A and a hydrating moisturiser.

And that hydrating moisturiser – however boring it might sound – is one of the key parts of any regime. Not only will it help nourish skin, but it’ll also protect the all-important skin barrier, which is especially vital while we’re in the depths of delightful British winter. And one of my favourite brands that does just that is Dr.Jart+.

It’s a brand that originated in South Korea and launched in the UK back in 2021 (you’ve probably seen its Colour Correcting Treatment all over TikTok) and every single launch has blown me away, but its Ceramidin franchise is next-level incredible.

As the name suggests, it’s developed with a blend of ceramides – which are essential for locking in moisture and strengthening the skin’s barrier – alongside hyaluronic acid and botanical extracts. It’s perfect for this time of year when the temperature drops and we go from being in cold, harsh winds outside and into our central-heated homes, which can cause skin to feel dry and tight.

The whole range is made up of seven products, but the four that stand out (and which immediately made their way into my everyday skincare routine) are the new-for-2023 intensive moisture and the existing cream, serum and mist. Here’s why I love them so much…

  • Dr.Jart+ Ceramidin Ectoin-Infused Cream

    Best winter skincare: Dr.Jart+ Ceramidin Ectoin-Infused Cream

    I’ve been a long-time fan of the hero product from the range, Ceramidin Cream, but for the last few weeks – and ahead of its official launch, which happened this week – I’ve been using the brand’s new Ectoin-Infused Cream. It’s more expensive than the rest of the range, but it’s worth it: housed in a pot instead of a jar, it’s a real winter skin saviour and is ideal for extremely dry, flaky skin (which I can be prone to). As the name suggests, it harnesses the power of ectoin – a new-to-me ingredient that deeply moisturises and binds water to in the skin, protecting the skin barrier and preventing moisture from escaping. It also uses ceramides alongside argan oil and shea butter, so it’s rich but not greasy. I’ve been slathering it on each night and waking up to fresh-looking, dewy, hydrated and happy skin.

  • Dr.Jart+ Ceramidin Cream

    Best winter skincare: Dr.Jart+ Ceramidin Cream

    When I tell you the texture of this cream is perfect, I mean it. It’s rich but it’s not oily or greasy, and it absorbs into the skin so beautifully. If I stopped being lazy then I know this would be the perfect formula to use with a gua sha. Not only does it work to intensely nourish skin but it also feels so comforting – you know when your skin can feel irritated and tight? This solves that instantly without feeling at all heavy. If you only try one thing from the range, make it this.

  • Dr.Jart+ Ceramidin Serum

    Best winter skincare: Dr.Jart+ Ceramidin Serum

    My preferred way of using this is to either layer it under the Ceramidin Cream for a double dose of moisture or on the days that my skin feels particularly dehydrated, I layer it between my vitamin C serum and sunscreen in the morning for added moisture. It’s a trick I wholeheartedly recommend – and that’s coming from somebody who doesn’t like to apply too much skincare in the morning through fear of it pilling (which is when skincare rolls off in tiny little balls), but thankfully, that never happens.

  • Dr.Jart+ Ceramidin Cream Mist

    Best winter skincare: Dr.Jart+ Ceramidin Cream Mist

    Some may say a mist is unnecessary, and while I agree to a certain extent – there are definitely other products more vital – I love how they make my skin feel after I’ve cleansed it. This is definitely the creamiest spray I’ve used (the clue’s in the name, I guess) but it’s so lovely to use. I mist it all over my face and then gently tap it into my skin for an extra layer of weightless moisture. It can also be used on top of make-up to refresh it throughout the day. I’m a big, big fan.
