Improve your complexion from inside and out.

Skin Care For Dry January

A new year often fills us with hope to start anew and that typically includes making resolutions to eat better, drink more water, exercise more and take better general care of our bodies. If your 2021 consisted of indulging in more cocktails than you intended and even making your water intake more the hard seltzer kind than actual H2O, we wouldn’t be surprised if you vowed to start 2022 with a dry January. Why not up the ante on your self-care and add some skin-loving ingredients to your regimen for the month and thereafter? Need some help finding the right picks? Keep reading as we share 10 effective skin care products to go with your dry January, so you can start your journey to a glowing complexion that includes cleansing both inside and out.


L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof - All Skin Types

For all those days you’re feeling too wiped out to properly wash your face, or when double cleansing is in order, reach for this sinkless cleanser. Suitable for all skin types, it gives the skin a purified feeling without stripping it. It’s also perfect for removing makeup — even waterproof formulas.


L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Radiant Smoothing Cream Cleanser

After you remove impurities and makeup with your micellar water, follow it up with a cream cleanser that’s gentle enough to use daily but potent enough to give your skin a proper cleanse. This formula that works for all skin types — including mature skin — enhances skin smoothness as part of both your daytime and nighttime skin care routine


L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 5% Glycolic Acid Peeling Toner

While drinking less alcohol and ingesting more water can help to give your skin a glow, so can exfoliating so don’t skip that step in your regimen. It’s easy to do with this toner packed with alpha hydroxy acids that remove dead skin cells from the surface of your complexion and prepare the skin for the powerhouse ingredients in your serums.


L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Anytime you’re looking to boost the hydration in your complexion, turn your attention to hyaluronic acid. The naturally occurring enzyme depletes in your skin as you age, leading to dryness and dullness. A hyaluronic acid serum like this one can help to replump, rehydrate and renew the skin while helping to ward off wrinkles in the process.


L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives with 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid, 1% Caffeine Eye Serum

Let your eye area reap the benefits of a fresh start too and incorporate this eye serum into your routine. Packed with caffeine for its anti-inflammatory benefits and hyaluronic acid for hydration, the serum helps to brighten and depuff and visibly reduce the look of crow’s feet.


L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum

This top-rated radiance boosting serum is the perfect companion to your month of drying out, especially when your skin is recovering from all those late night holiday parties. Just a dime-size amount every morning and night is enough to restore skin’s radiance and banish dullness in just one week.

 

L’Oréal Paris Wrinkle Expert 35+ Moisturizer

You’re never too young (or old) to invest in a face cream that soothes skin, offers hydration and improves elasticity, so you don’t have to be 35 to make use of this moisturizer. It contains collagen to strengthen the skin and deliver a smoother, plumper look.


L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer

It’s also important to use a night moisturizer created to work its magic while you snooze — and you get that with this formula. Made with a patented recovery complex that makes use of the skin’s antioxidant reserves at night and boosts the cell renewal process, this moisturizer helps deliver smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin. 


L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Pressed Night Moisturizer with Retinol + Niacinamide

This night moisturizer is formulated with retinol, niacinamide and a complex of soothing ingredients to help you improve your complexion even while you sleep. Overnight it deeply moisturizes skin, and over time it visibly reduces wrinkles, brightens the complexion and firms the contours of your visage.


L’Oréal Paris Self-Tanning Facial Water Mist, Vitamin E

Finally, since January has a reputation for frigid temperatures, it’s safe to say that you’re likely not going to get a natural tan. Instead of relying on your bronzer and highlighter to mimic that kissed-by-the-sun look you crave year-round, try this weightless self-tanning mist. It lets you build a streak-free natural-looking tan without clogging pores or leaving a sticky feeling. Mist directly onto the face and neck in a sweeping motion or spray onto a cotton pad and apply it all over your visage.
