Every now and then, dry skin happens to us all.
The worst thing you can do is nothing at all, and the best thing is to invest in a good moisturizer. But quality matters. You can’t just pick up any old formula and hope it does the trick. Depending on what skin type you have and personal preferences (do you like it lightweight or a thick balm?), select carefully.
We’ve tried ’em all and there are a lot of winners out there. For the dry skin saviors we swear by, keep scrolling!
