Lord knows I have drier skin so I though I’d recommend moisturizing products for drier skin types. You know I went to the Chanel counter last year to look at skincare and the rep told me I had combination skin. I seriously felt like I won the lotto when she told me that even if I did feel she completely missed the mark because lord knows anything is better than drier skin.
Drier skin ages faster and I totally think it is one of the more high maintenance skin types. Struggling with shine and oil? Be HAPPY about that because you’ll likely look younger longer.
We dry skin folk end up looking like a dried up raisin by 40!
So here’s a list of some recommended moisturizing products for the drier skin ladies and lads out there.
Steam Cream is a multitasking moisturizer that can be used all over your body including your face. Steam Cream isn’t for everyone’s taste as it has been known to have a lavender scent that isn’t particularly appealing to the masses. I, however, do not mind in the least. This is sorta kinda a Lush Dream Cream dupe up and not any great surprise considering Steam Cream is brought to us by Lush. Housed in collectible tins, Steam Cream is created using steam to give it a soft, supple texture that absorbs easily into skin. It can be used on your body, your hands, and yes even your face. In the dead of Winter when
no one can hear your screams my face is pretty flaky and this instantly relieves that drama on contact! Plus it does wonders with my drier elbows and knees! A true multitasking diva for the drier skin folk.
Mizon No 1 Moist King’s Berry Cream
Korea’s popular and cute ape, King, has a wide range of super size skincare products including the popular Moist King’s Berry Cream and no it doesn’t smell like berries. This one is kinda a dupe up of Steam Cream in my opinion. Thick, creamy, super rich, and able to take on rough elbows and knees as well as a dry, flaky complexion this moisturizing gem supposedly whitening and anti-aging benefits. All I know is it gives dry skin a heaping dose of much needed moisture.
Biore Moist Sealing Gel Lotion
Available in a range of formulas (my favorite being the very moist formula) Biore Moist Sealing Lotion is a toning lotion that launched in Japan last year. This is a thicker toner than you might be familiar with here in the US. It’s almost a gel-like consistency which can be used all its own to provide instant moisture to skin or under your other favorite skincare products. The gel absorbs easily into skin and leaves drier skin feeling soft, supple, and very, very hydrated.
Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream and Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid
If you’re looking for long term healing properties Dr Jart has you covered with these two products. These not only provide instant fast absorbing motion but they will help skin retain that moisture for long periods of time so your skin looks plumped, healthy, and takes on some of your glow due to dryness!
Curel Ultra Healing
A little unknown fact about Curel products, most can be used on your face! Occasionally my skin becomes a bit sensitive when it gets cold which means it gets even drier and products tend to sting when I apply them. Not good! It’s almost a chapped-like issue for me. When this happens Curel is one of the gentlest and highly hydrating products I can use on my face. I do so overnight as day use is a bit overkill! It actually provides long term moisture and gets my skin look fab again in a hurry. I keep it handy for those days I really need heavy moisture!
Sana Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Cream
Sana’s Aqua Placenta Cream is a gel-like consistency that absorbs easily into skin which makes it very easy to wear in the day. On the plus side it offers intense LONG lasting hydration. Not only providing moisture but sealing it into your skin. If my skin is looking extra nice I blame it on this as it eases dullness considerably by providing intense moisture.
Etude House Flower Moistfull Cream
Etude House’s entire range of Moistfull products is fab but I’m quite a fan of the lovely scent of the Flower Moistfull Cream. This gel moisturizer sinks easily into skin and not only provide great moisture but can be used as a lightweight daily moisturizer for any season including Summer without making skin too oily, shiny, or feeling like you have TOO much moisturizer on.
DHC Moisture Fruit Gel Cream Moisturizer
I typically use DHC’s entire Fruit range in the Summer because it provides great moisture but isn’t heavy nor does it create extra oil or shine on my skin. However, this one does pack a punch as it helps skin retain moisture, keeping it supple and quite soft. Plus many skin types can take advantage of this one.
Etude House Nutriful Shea Butter Eye Cream
This one won’t treat your finer lines dears but it will provide excellent moisture to drier eyes. I really like the thicker, creamy texture yet quick to absorb formula on this one. Typically I apply it over my regular eye cream for extra moisture!
