Having very dry skin is in itself a great challenge. Because, it’s not just winters, which makes our skin go as dry as the Sahara Desert! But Summers, are also the worst. The constant need to apply a moisturizer becomes an hour-based chore. And people who have dry skin can definitely relate to that.

You all must be thinking that why am I describing these struggles of people with dry skin?

Well, being a victim of dry and scaly skin myself, I want to share some Moisturizing creams for dry skin that can definitely help with skin dryness for a long term.

The biggest problem with most of the moisturizers in the market is that after applying them, the skin does feel moisturized and smooth, at least for 1-2 hours. But after that, it just goes Poof! The skin starts stretching all over again.

And let’s just not talk about the relation of water and the moisturizers. Because there isn’t any! The minute I wash my hands or face, the cream goes off.

So, after doing a lot of research and experiments on my skin itself, I have come up with a few really effective Moisturizers for dry skin in winters and Summers both. That can really bless your skin with long term moisturization. Let’s find them out!

Moisturizers for dry skin in summers and winters

Before divulging straight into the products, let me just tell you that I have normal, dry skin and not a sensitive one. So, people with sensitive skin should just do a patch test or something, to know if it suits them.

Also, I have added a few Moisturizing creams for dry sensitive skin and I’ll mention it in the product.

WOW Skin Science Shea Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Lotion

WOW Skin Science Shea Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Lotion

The lotion is packed with moisturizing agents like Shea & Cocoa Butters, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin B5. These ingredients lock the moisture into the skin and prevent the skin from getting dry.

It provides long hours of moisturization and the best feature of it is that it is free of parabens and mineral oils, that are harmful to the skin.

From an internationally acclaimed brand, Eau Thermale Avène, Avene rich compensating cream is a daily soothing and nourishing cream for very dry skin. It contains Avène Thermal Spring Water that provides intense hydration to the skin and soothes the irritated skin.

The cream is particularly for people who have very dry sensitive skin. So, people with sensitive skin, you can use it without any worries!

Nivea Soft Cream

Nivea Soft Cream

I think Nivea is like a home to me when it comes to moisturizing creams. Because it’s always there. This Nivea soft cream is one of the best hydrating creams for dry skin.

Enriched with vitamin E and jojoba oil, it moisturizes the skin for a longer time and also is suitable for all skin types. The cream has a very light texture so you won’t feel the greasiness on your skin.

Especially for summers, you should go for Moisturizes for dry skin with spf or sun protection. So, learn about the right Sunscreens for Year-Round Sun Protection: According to skin types.

The cream has a very unique ingredient, Oatmeal, which intensely moisturizes the skin and provides relief against dryness. For people with extremely dry skin, this cream is the best for you.

Angelskin Cream

Angelskin Cream

It’s a highly moisturizing and nourishing cream that contains Glycerin, which is a well-known humectant that pulls water from the deeper skin layer onto the outer skin. Also, the cream gets easily absorbed into the skin.

It moisturizes the skin but at the same time protects it from getting dry and irritated. I would say that it is one of the best drugstore moisturizing creams for dry skin.

Sebamed Moisturizing Cream

Sebamed Moisturizing Cream

All of the Sebamed skin product range has a pH of 5.5, which helps maintains the natural barrier of the skin. This Sebamed cream is a dermatologist formulated, highly nourishing face moisturizer for dry skin that not only moisturizes the skin but also protects it from pollution and dryness.

The cream is free from harmful skin irritants like Parabens/ Paraffin/ Phthalates/ Propylene Glycol and is safe even for the sensitive of skins.

Reminding you guys again, people with sensitive skin should do a patch test before applying the cream directly to their faces.
