7 essential products for terribly dry skin!
If you’re anything like me and have extremely dry skin, you need the products on this list. (side note: At first, I wasn’t going to discuss beauty products or skin care on my blog, but I decided that I’ll do occasional beauty/skin care posts to share my favorite products with you guys).
I’ll start off my telling you about my skin. I have oily skin on my face, which makes me reluctant to use certain moisturizers, but if I ever skip lotion, my skin hates me for it! I start getting dry patches and discoloration around my mouth if I don’t moisturize my face, so it’s a must that I do it every single day. I’ve also noticed that my eyelids and my lips get really dry too, especially after I wash my face. My body, mostly in the winter, is sooo dry! Specifically, my back, hands and feet.
The products on this list are all of my personal favorites, simply because they work for me! Every product I’m about to mention has helped me achieve smooth, hydrated skin, even in the winter! And I am hoping that, if you have dry skin too, at least a few of these products can help you out! Let’s get started!
Clinique Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer. I love this stuff! With my oily skin, I’m always scared to use moisturizer, but this stuff is great. First of all, it’s oil-free (which is music to my ears, as I have acne-prone skin). Secondly, it acts as a moisturizer and a primer. It instantly blurs the look of pores and imperfections when you put it on and it makes your skin feel like velvet! I love it because when I use this product, I’m moisturizing and priming all in one step (my skin is instantly ready for makeup! Though this is great worn alone as well) It has a thick consistency, but I like it (it makes my skin feel so smooth)! Overall, if you’re looking for oil-free, all-day hydration and you’re okay with the feel of a velvety moisturizer, this is the stuff for you.
Mario Badescu Facial Spray (Rosewater). I know you probably hear about this product all the time, but it’s truly good! It’s super hydrating, so I love using it as a setting spray or when my skin feels dry and dull after a long day.
Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream. I’ve tried quite a few eye creams over the past year, but this one is, by far, my favorite because of how moisturizing it is. I also like that it focuses on preventing wrinkles and not puffs. For some reason, when I use de-puffing eye creams, I wake up with puffy eyes ( I know, it’s the weirdest thing)! A little bit of this goes a long way and I love how it makes my eyes feel so soft and smooth!
Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil. My absolute favorite lotion right now! This stuff not only smells great, but it’s so moisturizing. It makes my skin incredibly soft and a little goes a long way (it just glides on)! I use this every day, all over my body and on my hands before bed (it’s great after a hot shower)! I’m obsessed. Josie’s whipped argan oil line has a variety of scents you can choose from. I’m currently using mango and it smells so good!
Nivea Essentially Enriched Body Lotion for dry to very dry skin. This lotion is my go-to! I have been using this for years and it never lets me down. It’s thick enough to keep my skin moisturized all day, but not too thick that it feels like glue. Applying this lotion is like splashing water on my dry skin, it’s so refreshing!
Nivea In-Shower Nourishing Body Lotion. I really enjoy this in-shower body lotion in the winter time. It gives me that extra boost of moisture that my dry skin needs. Even though it says you don’t have to use lotion after, I definitely still do!
Smith’s Strawberry Lip Balm. This lip balm is amazing. I put it on before I go to bed every night and I wake up with super soft lips. When my lips get really dry or cracked, this will restore the moisture in about two days! It also smells really good!
