Does your skin flake when you forget to put on face cream or feel tight and itchy when the aircon’s on full blast? We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but things are about to get a whole lot drier, thanks to the cooler, windier climes of the holiday season.
We’re sure we don’t have to tell you how important it is to stay moisturized—especially if you’ve got a dry skin type. Your saviors: rich and creamy formulas, oil-based elixirs, and moisture-boosters such as hyaluronic acid, olive oil, sunflower oil, grapeseed oil, and good ol’ honey. Say goodbye to your dry patches and parched skin with these babies on BeautyMNL:
1. PHYSIOGEL CREAM
Suffering from intense dryness? This dermatologist-endorsed moisturizer penetrates deep into the skin layer to repair damage. We love it because it’s hypoallergenic and proudly non-comedogenic, so even though it’s on the thick side, it won’t clog your pores.
2. DERMALOGICA’S INTENSIVE MOISTURE BALANCE
This antioxidant-packed formula contains Vitamins A, C, and E to brighten dull, lifeless complexions. The best part: it’s also laced with grapeseed extract, which calms irritation brought on by dryness.
3. TONY MOLY’S RED APPLETOX HONEY CREAM
Korean favorite Tony Moly treats your dehydrated skin with a soothing apple-honey combo. This all-in-one cream softens rough and flaky textures, combats the beginning signs of skin-aging, and can even be used for at-home facials to massage your skin.
4. DHC’S VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
All-natural addict? This facial oil contains 100% certified organic Flor de Aceite, a super-pure form of olive oil nicknamed “Spain’s Black Gold.” As a dry skin remedy, it’s pretty much the crème de la crème.
5. CLARINS’ EXTRA-FIRMING NIGHT CREAM FOR DRY SKIN
This cream’s most obvious benefit is its hyaluronic acid content, which is a godsend for dry skin. But its anti-aging formula also helps diminish the appearance of dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles with herb and floral extracts.
BONUS: PHILOSOPHY’S HOPE IN A JAR FOR DRY SKIN
It almost seems unfair to include Philosophy’s stuff in all our skincare lists—but their products are just that good! Take its cult fave cream, Hope In A Jar: it has a comfortable air-whipped texture, pampers coarse and flaky skin, and leaves a luminous glow. No wonder Oprah recommends it.
