Dry skin suffers from many problems, but a moisturiser ensures your skin remains soft and nourished
With the winter season at its peak, dry skin beauties particularly have a hard time maintaining the glow and radiance during this time. Scaly skin, flaking, inflammation, rashes- these are some of the common problems that dry skin faces all year round but gets worse, especially during winter.
The basic solution is using a good moisturiser specifically designed for dry skin. Once you find your holy grail moisturiser, surviving the winter gets easier.
Find out the different ways in which you can determine the moisturiser and how to make the most of it in this cold season.
What should you look for in the best moisturiser for dry skin?
Do some basic research on the best ingredients that can thoroughly hydrate dry skin. The moisturiser should be thick and creamy especially for dry skin so that it can provide intense moisture for a longer time. Here are some of our recommendations regarding the same:
Hyaluronic acid is a light humectant that protects your skin against external radical damage by retaining moisture from the environment.
Ceramides are essential fats and lipids that prevent wrinkles and dryness. It is an essential ingredient to take care of dry skin which lacks ceramides after a certain age.
Aloe vera gel has soothing, hydrating and healing properties. Especially for dry skin, it prevents flaking and soothes the inflammation.
Cica is rich in amino acids, antioxidants, and vitamins A and B, all of which boost collagen production and soothes the irritated and inflamed skin caused by dryness.
Vitamin E boosts the skin repairing process and even the skin tone. It also prevents premature ageing which is particularly witnessed in dry skin.
Glycerin is a humectant that improves the skin barrier and protects the epidermis against external radical damage. It accelerates healing and calms down inflammation too.
Our recommendation for the best moisturiser for dry skin
Our recommendation for best moisturiser for the dry skin would be the Dr G HA Intense Moisturiser. It has ingredients like niacinamide, glycerine, mango seed butter, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and jojoba ester. It is a very creamy and rich formula that is designed for managing extremely dry skin.
The hyaluronic acid in this moisturiser ensures optimum skin hydration while reducing the appearance of fine lines. Vitamin E has anti-inflammatory properties that keeps inflammation and scarring at bay from dry skin. This is a highly nourishing moisturiser that restores the lipid balance of dry and dehydrated skin. It also acts as a barrier against external radicals, courtesy of the niacinamide present in it.
The combination of hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, echinacea, and centella Asiatica in the moisturiser locks moisture and improves the skin’s natural resilience.
The best moisturiser for dry skin should be used on damp skin. Spritz your face with a facial mist and then apply the moisturiser. If you have excessively dry skin, finish off the skincare routine with a dollop of facial oil for extra moisturization.
One can rightly say that dry skin is high-maintenance but when you find a good quality moisturiser, it gets much easier to handle. Skin By Dr G formulates some of the best skincare products for all skin types, including dry skin which are effective and show long-lasting results.
