4 Heavy-Duty Moisturizers for Dry Skin
We may be officially a few days into summer, but rough, cracked, and itchy skin doesn’t only rear its (ugly) head during the colder months. Warm weather can also exacerbate dry skin and make it feel uncomfortably tight; whether it’s due to prolonged sun exposure, chlorine from swimming pools, or moisture-sucking air conditioners. In the war against dry skin, finding the perfect—and ultra-hydrating—daily moisturizer is only half the battle, but it’s your best bet towards victory. Here, four no-joke moisturizers to keep in your arsenal all year long.
Formulated with an exclusive selection of extracts and oils, this rich, restorative moisturizer nourishes and hydrates the skin to restore and maintain proper moisture levels. It’s ideal for dry or sensitive skin that’s in need of some extra attention. Apply it once or twice daily to your face, neck, and chest; it gets to work immediately. The result? Skin that’s as smooth as silk.
