Whether it’s only because of the cold weather or you experience it year round, dry skin is never fun. It can be easily irritated, makeup doesn’t sit as well and sometimes, it can be downright embarrassing. Luckily, dry skin doesn’t have to stay that way. Once you find an exfoliator that buffs away dull, dead skin and a cleanser that hydrates as it cleans, all you need is a good lotion to keep your once-dry skin in tip top shape.
Finding a lotion that works well for dry skin can be a little tough, though, because if a moisturizer is too heavy, it tends to look greasy or clog pores. To help you get smooth, glowing skin, we’ve rounded up eight of the best face creams specifically formulated to work on dry skin. Take a look at the face creams above!
