Nobody wants dry and flaky skin. I know first hand that it is hands down one of the most annoying things. Makeup can’t be applied right and throughout the day it always seems that dry patches appear more and more. With the colder months coming, this problem may become worse and worse.
There are also steps you can take that will help from the inside out. Having a diet that consists of healthy fats will help to combat your dry and flaky skin. Things like avocados and walnuts are a good source of those healthy fats. Also cutting out caffeine and alcohol and increasing your water intake will also make a difference. Caffeine and alcohol are dehydrating to the body and skin so removing them from your diet will help get rid of dry patches. This won’t replace your skin care routine, but it will be helpful when trying to avoid dry skin.
Fear no more because there are moisturizers out there that will actually help combat dry skin. Some are higher end but the drugstore has some that are just as good. So get ready to say goodbye to dry skin and hello to a new face.
1. Neutrogena Hydro Boost
This moisturizer is $23 and can be purchased at any drugstore or Ulta Beauty. Its a water-based gel that is lightweight and will quench your skins thirst. It absorbs quick and is fragrance free for those with sensitive skin. The Hydro Boost also contains hyaluronic acid that is naturally found in skin that will provide it with hydration. Even if you don’t suffer from dry skin, this moisturizer is still great for those with normal to combination skin.
2. Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream
Almost everybody knows Tatcha because Kim Kardashian was known to use their setting spray. You can purchase this at Sephora for $68.
