While every girl should be keeping her skin moisturized, nobody needs that extra boost of hydration like you dry-skinned beauties. Without it, you’ll constantly battle with the three perils of an oil-deficient complexion: itching, flaking, and inflammation.

Banish those woes with lipid-infused creams, oil-based formulas, and lotions rich in hydrating ingredients like cocoa butter, coconut oil, snail slime filtrate, and Vitamin E. To help you out, we’ve handpicked our best moisture-boosters for your skin type, straight from the top shelves of BeautyMNL!

At the same time, it repairs elasticity to reduce fine lines. The result is smooth, velvety, flake-free skin.
