Do you have those days when you wake up and your skin feels as dry and as cracked as the Sahara in July? There are some things that are extremely wonderful dry – clothes, fluffy towels and your sense of humour – but your skin is not one of them. So how do you fix it? The first thing to do is to figure out if you have dry or dehydrated skin: the former refers to skin that doesn’t produce enough natural oils, and feels papery and flaky. The latter covers skin that feels oily and congested, but still somehow tight and dry.
Now, you can address the root cause. What are the best moisturizers and skincare for dry skin? We’d recommend the low pH face washes, facial oils, primers and occlusive lotions in this collection. For combination, sensitive and dehydrated skin, you’ll want barrier-building serums, water-based creams, and ingredients like hyaluronic acid. Of course, parched conditions extend to our body, too. If you’re looking for the right body lotions and butters for dry skin, you’ll find them here as well!
