Finding the best moisturizer for dry skin can be the difference between a dull and lackluster complexion and hydrated, glowing skin. If you have dry skin, then you likely already know how important it is to apply moisturizer each and every day in order to keep your skin looking smooth and radiant. But not just any moisturizer will do—you need the right one for your skin type.
Below, we’re sharing our best moisturizers for dry skin (a few of which are formulated with superstar ingredient hyaluronic acid). Take your pick and update your skin care routine for skin that is happy and hydrated. Then, find additional tips for moisturizing dry skin (along with how to complete your skin care routine with facial cleanser, eye cream, and more).
If you’re ready to add the best face moisturizer for dry skin to your routine, try one of our top moisturizers for dry skin below. Then, keep reading for advice on applying moisturizer when you have dry skin.
L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Honey Day Cream: One of our best face creams for dry skin, this decadent moisturizer with nurturing oils and Manuka Honey Extract is infused with calcium and antioxidants. It envelops the skin with a soft, silky layer of comfort to replenish it with long-lasting hydration. The rich cream penetrates deeply into the skin's surface layer to restore comfort and nourishing moisture to mature, very dry skin.
L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey All Over Balm - Face, Neck, Chest and Hands: If you’re on the hunt for a dry skin cream that can be used on-the-go, this is our moisturizer pick for you. The formula contains Manuka Honey Extract and nurturing oils infused with calcium and antioxidants. It has an indulgent, honey-inspired fragrance and absorbs quickly to relieve mature, very dry skin on the face, neck, chest, and hands. Beyond nourishment, skin is left looking more youthful with a healthy glow.
L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Honey Night Balm: At night, use this luxurious night balm with nurturing oils and Manuka Honey Extract. The moisturizer melts onto your skin for incredible nourishing comfort and long-lasting hydration. With continued use, skin on the face, neck, and chest is firmer, stronger, and more resilient. It’s also suitable for dry, sensitive skin.
L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care - Normal/Dry Skin: Harmful external factors, such as pollution and UV rays, can damage skin’s moisture barrier, increasing dehydration and causing skin to become drier. As a result, the skin’s surface loses its glow, becoming dull. This moisturizer, formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water, envelops skin with moisture, improving its hydration and radiance.
L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care - Extra Dry Skin: Extra dry skin has a very fragile moisture barrier that can easily be damaged by external factors, such as pollution and UV rays. Skin consequently loses its ability to retain moisture, becoming even more dehydrated, and feeling tight and uncomfortable. Immediately after using this moisturizer formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water, skin is comfortable, soothed, and nourished with hydration.
L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Intensive Overnight Mask: We know, this skin care product is technically an overnight face mask, but we must include it as one of our best moisturizers for dry skin. This luxurious leave-on creamy face mask forms a protective layer to cradle skin while you sleep. Immediately, skin feels hydrated and looks more radiant and fresh. All you have to do is apply it to cleansed skin before bed, smoothing it over your face, neck, and jawline until absorbed. There’s no need to rinse off until morning.
Now that you’re familiar with our best moisturizers for dry skin, it’s time to learn how to apply them. But let’s back up a minute: First things first, your skin care routine should start with a facial cleanser. Look for one that hydrates and soothes, like the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof - All Skin Types. Simply saturate a cotton pad with micellar water, then wipe the pad across your face. Once you’re done cleansing with micellar water, don’t dry your face. Apply your moisturizer to damp skin, as this can help lock in hydration.
If you are using a rinse-off facial cleanser, apply the same concept, and leave your face damp. Just make sure that you’re washing your face in lukewarm water, as super-hot water can strip your skin of essential oils, which can leave it feeling drier.
Finally, when you’re applying your best face cream for dry skin, gently smooth it over your face and neck until absorbed morning and night. Once you’re done, finish off your skin care routine with an eye cream formulated to address your specific skin care concerns.
