How to Choose the Best Facial Moisturizer for Your Dry Skin

If you have dry skin, it is important to choose the right facial moisturizer. Luckily, there are many different brands and formulas that can provide the hydration and nourishment your skin needs. With this guide, you will learn what ingredients to look for in a moisturizer and find out exactly which one is best suited for your dry skin.

Identify Your Skin Type

Before you start shopping for a facial moisturizer, it is important to identify your skin type. This will help ensure you get the best product for your specific needs. Generally, dry skin looks tight and feels dry to the touch. It may also flake or itch and feel less resilient than normal. To determine if a moisturizer is right for you, read through its ingredients list and make sure they are suitable for dry skin.

Check the Ingredients Listย 

Look for moisturizers that contain hydrating ingredients like glycerin, hyaluronic acid, ceramides and any natural oils such as sunflower, moringa seeds oil or jojoba. Light weight oil that won't clog your skin, it just sink right into the deep dermal layer including squalene, and caprylic/capric triglyceride (which is fractionated coconut oil). A simple google search of unknown ingredients' name will tell you where it is derived or made of. Avoid cream with volatile alcohol, fragrances, and other harsh chemicals that can dry out the skin and worsen sensitivity. Lastly make sure to use SPF of at least 15 to protect your skin from sun damage. Pay special attention to ingredients in trends as they can often lack scientific support and/or create further skin sensitization.

Consider Fragrances

Many moisturizers contain fragrances to make them smell good, but these can sometimes be harsh and irritating on the skin. To prevent skin sensitivity and potential allergic reactions, opt for fragrance-free facial cream if you are especially sensitive to smells or if your dry skin is easily irritated. Fragrance is found not only in creams, but in many other products like sunscreen, facial cleansers and makeup โ€” so itโ€™s important to keep an eye out for those types of label warnings as well.

Pick a Moisturizer That Fits Into Your Daily Routine

Just like other skincare products, itโ€™s important to find a facial moisturizer that fits easily and comfortably into your daily routine. Some creams may require multiple layers and more time to apply than others โ€” which may not works better for some busy lifestyles, while they prefer simple and fast solutions. When looking for the perfect cream, make sure to focus on the type of moisturizer that supports your lifestyle so you can effortlessly incorporate it into your daily routine without wasting unnecessary time or energy.
