Say hello to moisture and glow.
Whether the cause of your dry skin is due to aging, weather, or an underlying medical condition, just knowing what you should be looking for when choosing the right skin care products will help. Not only have we named ingredients and features that are most effective for dry skin treatment, we give you our top product recommendations as well.
Some of the best dry skin solutions can be found in your own home and require little preparation. The best of these include:
Avocados and honey – Mash up an avocado with a few tablespoons of honey for a moisturizer that also soothes inflammation. Apply the mixture on the face and leave on for 15 minutes before rinsing off.
Milk – Dip a washcloth in some milk and use it to clean the skin. The lactic acid in the milk gently cleans the skin while the fat hydrates it.
Olive, coconut, or almond oil – You can also use olive oil or sweet almond oil to moisturize and hydrate dry skin, particularly on rough patches. Warm the oils a little bit and gently massage a small quantity on the face.
Aloe vera – Aloe vera masks are great for restoring moisture to dry skin. Break open an aloe vera leaf and take some of the clear jelly-like substance inside, rub it on the face and leave it on for 15 minutes before washing it off with cold water.
When choosing a cleanser, it’s important to look for gentle face washes that are free of dyes, fragrances, and detergents. Also check the packaging to make sure they have a neutral pH, as well as contain added moisturizing and soothing ingredients.

Body butter contains emollients that draw moisture straight to the skin’s surface, leaving it super soft. Plus – more moisture in the skin means you will look and feel healthy. Body butter is best when applied all over your body after taking a shower.

The gentlest way to remove dead skin cells every day is to use the LUNA 2. It utilizes T-Sonic technology to lift away the dead cells that cause white patches. Scrubs should be used once a week and contain natural oils and butters like shea or cocoa butter. Because dry skin tends to be sensitive, make sure you choose a gentle, non-irritating formula.

The first step to finding a good mask for dry skin is to make sure its purpose is to add moisture, as masks are often used to treat oily skin as well. Stay far away from masks that contain lemons, oranges, and kiwi, as well as clay masks with red kaolin and bentonite–these treat oily skin and must be avoided.
