Don't Be Embarrassed: The 9 Best Moisturisers for Dry Skin



Dry skin doesn't just happen to people in the winter. If you've been, ahem, blessed with such a complexion, then you know it's an all-year-round kinda thing (lucky you). But before we give you a rundown of the best moisturisers to solve this skincare issue, perhaps it would be good to know if you've got dry skin in the first place, as so many people don't even know if they have it. According to celebrity esthetician Renée Rouleau, truly dry skin "does not produce any oil or sebum." You also tend to have smaller pores and don't break out as much. While this sounds fantastic, skin can be flaky and often look dull. Also, it can—sound dramatic music—cause wrinkles to look worse.

Now, before you start panicking, there are few things to start doing, such as not using too harsh cleansers (avoid sulphates) and ensuring you moisturise the moment you've washed your face. But there are also some incredible moisturisers ideally formulated for dry skin that can put some zing back into your complexion. Bonus tip: Try using a serum before your moisturiser to give it an added hydrating boost. After that, we suggest you use a super-moisturising cream, so keep scrolling for our pick.
