6 Best Budget Friendly Moisturizers for Dry Skin

Dermatologist recommended products to treat, heal and prevent dry skin.

Challenges brought on by harsh weather create difficulties for your skin. It can be a struggle to keep your skin supple, vibrant and youthful under the best of times. When challenged by conditions that lead to skin dryness, your complexion can become rough, dull, flakey and dry quickly. Fine lines, wrinkles, sagging and crepey skin happens almost overnight. My top 6 best budget-friendly moisturizer for dry skin include:

When should you splurge on a special skin care product for severely dry skin.

Creams, oils, lotions and butters will treat and heal all types of dry skin. If your facial skin is extremely crepey, limp, saggy and troubled by fine lines and wrinkles, consider splurging on a serum with super powers for plumping skin with water-holding power.  My Instantly Luminous Multi-Action Serum created with multiple molecular weights of hyaluronic acid so that this water sponge will stratify throughout many layers of your skin, plumping instantly to a dewy, hydrated and youthful luster.

In winter months, or when you are in hot, dry and windy climates, it’s important to use skin care products that hydrate your skin and prevent water loss. You also want creams, butters and lotions that contain oils to replenish skin oils lost and damaged as skin dries out.

Did you know the best ingredients for dry skin care are:

Natural botanical oils can be rich in the same linoleic acid, palmitic acid and oleic acids that are natural components of your skin’s outer lipid layer. Look for healing botanical oils such as jojoba oil, sunflower seed oil, castor seed oil, kukui nut oil, coconut oil, apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, cacao butter and shea butter.

Hypoallergenic botanical essential oils with healing properties in the right amount can help heal skin and fight inflammation. The best essential oils and botanical oils include argan oil, rosehip oil, pomegranate seed oil, sea buckthorn oil and borage oil.

Humectants bind water to the skin. Look for humectants such as glycerin, hyaluronic acid, sodium PCA (NaPCA, which is a component of your skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor), and squalane.
