I’m drawn towards luxurious rich creams no matter the season. My parched skin drinks up heavy doses of moisture. If I have been diligent (or indulgent) in hydration, I can really see an increased radiance in my skin. While I use these richer moisturizers year round, I know some of you might be rotating in a winter-friendly heavier cream. If you are in the market, here are my six favorite rich moisturizers for dry skin:
Not only does this cream cure dry skin, but it also works against aging with a revolutionary technology. Based on scientific research into telomeres, it is proven to effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles, increase skin firmness and elasticity and improve the appearance of skin discoloration. It also plays well with sensitive skin. Use morning and night.
This Japanese brand, wildly popular in Asia, is now available at Ulta and drugstores here in the US. With a compelling price point, this formula focuses on a super-charged Hyaluronic Acid. While it has a gel-like texture, don’t underestimate its hydration power. It contains the highest concentration of Hyaluronic Acid out of the entire product line. Skin is left plumped and soft, but not greasy. Fragrance free and non-irritating. Use morning and night.
Another rich moisturizer with anti-aging benefits, Juice Beauty’s version uses fruit stem cells to infuse the formula with vitamin C and resveratrol. This blend repairs damage to the skin on a DNA level. Plant oils provide hydration. Juice Beauty products are free of loads of nasty ingredients like parabens, petroluem, sulphates, GMO, silicones, pesticides and artificial dyes. Use morning and night.
Youth Code targets women with younger skin but I was happy to discover this formula packs a moisture punch. Crafted to improve pores, texture and fine lines, this cream has a silky texture. It absorbs quickly with a velvet finish. Plus, you can’t beat the drugstore price point.
myHERO is particularly formulated for dry, mature and sensitive skin. It also targets redness along with other signs of aging. Ingredients stimulate collagen production while comforting irritated skin. Over time, this can help boost skin’s immunity. Use in the evening.
The long-standing skin care powerhouse, Kiehl’s, designed their newest cream to reduce signs of aging with beech tree extract and jasmonic and hyaluronic acids. The formula is also friendly towards sensitive skin. The rich cream has an element of gel texture, allowing for quick absorption. Paraben and fragrance-free. Use in the morning and evening.
