If you have dry skin, then you know that the rising temperatures and increasing humidity doesn’t necessarily mean that your skin woes are coming to an end any time soon. The truth is, those with truly dry skin experience symptoms year round.
So if you’re on the hunt for the best products to prevent dry skin and give your complexion the moisture it deserves, fear not. From the best moisturizers for dry skin to eye creams, face serums and more, we’re rounding up several dry skin-friendly goodies to pick up next time you hit up the drugstore.
Facial cleansers that are overly stripping can contribute to dryness. Using a cream cleanser packed with nourishing ingredients can help prevent you from drying out your skin. This one is great because it contains replenishing oils that help to soften the skin while the cleanser works to remove makeup and impurities.
Finding a moisturizer that hydrates your skin enough without being greasy can be tricky for people with dry skin. This one has a rich texture that blends into the skin effortlessly without leaving behind an oily residue. The formula also contains collagen which helps to hydrate the skin as well as address wrinkles over time. Plus, it’s great for sensitive skin and fast-absorbing.
Hyaluronic acid serums are holy grail skin care products for those with dry skin because of how effective they are at hydrating. This one has a smooth, weightless texture that sinks into the skin in seconds without leaving a tacky feeling behind. It works to hydrate and replump, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles with continued use.
The beauty of a hyaluronic acid serum doesn’t stop at the face. This eye serum formulated with the hero hydrating ingredient works to plump thin skin in the delicate under-eye area while enhancing the skin’s moisture retention and reducing puffiness. Plus, the unique tripper roller applicator feels incredibly cooling and it can be massaged under the eyes to help minimize puffiness.
If you prefer a creamier, hydrating product for under your eyes, you’ll love this eye cream formulated with calcium. Calcium is known to help strengthen thinning skin, which is very common in the eye area as we age. It also works to moisturize the skin, reduce the appearance of crow's feet and even skin texture.
Having a moisturizer with SPF protection in your skin care arsenal is a must regardless of your skin type. This one has SPF 25 in addition to antioxidants, which help the skin defend against natural aggressors such as pollution and dirt. It’s the perfect choice for those with dry, mature skin because it helps to firm and brighten while also combating wrinkles.
At nighttime when you don’t need SPF, reach for this moisturizer that’s packed with an exclusive antioxidant recovery complex and vitamin E to protect against environmental aggressors and aid in the skin’s cell renewal process. It provides all-night hydration without a sticky feeling.
Dry skin doesn’t stop at the face — keeping your lips hydrated is just as important. In addition to applying lip balm at night before bed to prevent dry lips, it’s also a good idea to reach for nourishing lip colors throughout the day.
This formula is a lip balm and lipstick hybrid that has the pigmentation of a lipstick and the comfortable feeling of a lip balm. Plus, it’s formulated with pomegranate extract to nourish the lips and keep them smooth throughout the day.
