When treating dry skin, sometimes less is more. This no-frills formula may be basic, but it has everything needed to moisturize and protect dry skin, including ceramides, hyaluronic acid and glycerin. The non-greasy cream is formulated to both restore and maintain the skin barrier, as well as boost the skin’s natural levels of nourishing ceramides over time.
This rich cream contains hyaluronic acid and Vichy’s proprietary volcanic water to help hydrate skin for 48 hours and give it a more youthful glow.
For a daytime moisturizer, we love this three-in-one product. It serves as a serum, moisturizer and sunscreen and helps hydrate and plump the appearance of fine lines thanks to its star ingredients: hyaluronic acid and watermelon extract.
As we age, we can lose our natural rosy tone. This dullness can be exacerbated by dry skin. Target both with this moisturizer which contains imperial peony extracts and micro-exfoliating LHA for firmer, more radiant and hydrated skin.
This moisturizer may feel lightweight, but don’t be fooled — it’s formulated to repair the moisture barrier so your skin stays hydrated longer. The cream contains ceramides, niacinamide and glycerin and is made without fragrance and parabens.
