The Moisturizer Guide For Extremely Dry Skin

Day Time Moisturizers

Earth To Skin Manuka Day Gel Cream

When applied, this gel cream feels slightly cold to the touch and leaves the skin feeling extremely supple and smooth. On days when my skin needs an extra boost of hydration, I use this product as my first step underneath another moisturizer. This gel cream is magical as a base for makeup as well. It smoothes out textured skin and the foundation applied on top looks flawless. I picked up this product on a whim since everything from this brand looks heavenly, and I am highly impressed.

I have incorporated this gel cream into my routine for over a year now and I still get excited to apply it. It feels like I am applying a very expensive product on my face. I usually don’t use this product alone because it soaks into the skin very fast. Meaning, for my dry skin, the gel cream doesn’t leave my skin feeling extra moisturized. It basically soaks all of it up, so pairing it with a moisturizer or SPF makes this a god-sent! I usually pick this up at my local target or on amazon.

Olay Complete Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen

After years of trying to find the best SPF for my sensitive, dry skin, I can say I have finally found it. And on the plus side, it can be found at the drugstore. This moisturizer has an SPF of 30 which is great for a daily moisturizer. This is basically a no-fuss type of product and that is why I think I gravitate towards it so much. It doesn’t leave the skin with a white cast since it soaks in completely but still manages to leave the skin feeling hydrated. One thing i will mention with this product is the slight white cast, but after a few minutes it sinks into the skin and goes away completely.

It looks amazing underneath foundation as well. I use this moisturizer in many different ways. If I have a foundation or tinted moisturizer that is too dark for me at the moment, I simply mix it with this product, and boom! It blends into my perfect shade.

Day or Night Time Oil

Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil

This product is sent right from the heavens for my dry skin people. This oil soaks into the skin beautifully and leaves behind plump and glowing skin. After using this product consistently, I can say it gives my skin the hydration it needs, improves the appearance of wrinkles, and helps with uneven texture. The skin completely drinks this up. I like to use this at night before bed so by the time I wake up my skin looks noticeably plumper and healthier.

There are so many pros when you find an oil product that works for your face. Since it’s all-natural and not filled with filler ingredients or basically any crap as some other creams can. This is 100% pure argan oil that is cruelty-free, vegan, paraben-free, sulfate-free, gluten-free, phthalate-free, synthetic fragrance-free, and mineral oil-free. I recommend this oil highly, so you can see for yourself how much of a difference the skin will look after consistent use with it. I swear by this stuff and have to say it is definitely worth the price tag.

Night Time Moisturizer

Paula’s Choice Replenishing Moisturizer

This moisturizer is super luxurious. It is on the thicker side and a dry skin girl’s dream. Although it is a thicker product it isn’t insanely heavy feeling on the skin, and that is what love about it. Perfect for the winter months when it is inevitable to have dry flaky skin. Raise your hand if you can barely wear face makeup because your dry skin takes over your life during the winter (LOL.) The ingredients in this product are beautiful.

It is full of antioxidants that totally quench and revive your skin. I use this product at night (during the winter months only) and by the morning I can completely tell that my skin drank this product right up. It helps with redness and rosacea as well, so if that is an area of concern for you I would think about looking into Paula’s Choice as a brand.

CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion

This is a fuss-free nighttime moisturizer for all year round. Contains ceramides, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid which are must-have ingredients you would want on your skin. I am a sucker for whenever I see skincare that contains those ingredients. This is super easy to travel with, the packaging is the perfect size and it actually lasts a decent amount of time.

If you are looking to completely change your skin care i would look into CeraVe. They target every single skin type and their products actually work. It is skin care that doesn’t break the bank as well which is always a lovely plus I like to say. This product is also great for oily skin.
