8 Dry Skin Must-Haves From CVS
Be Honest, Your Skin Is…Sahara-Level Dry
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer
Painfully dry skin calls for a fast-acting formula, like Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer. It absorbs into the skin like a lightweight gel, but provides all-day hydration like a rich cream. It contains hyaluronic acid, the gold standard for supple skin, and it doesn’t contain potentially irritating oils, dyes or fragrances.
If Your Skin Is…Slightly Parched
La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Balm
Even a few rough patches here and there can be bothersome, which is why we love the La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Balm. The multipurpose formula can be applied to the body, face, feet and hands for instant relief from chapped, raw skin. It absorbs fast and is so gentle, it can even be used on babies as young as one week old.
If Your Lips Could…Use Some TLC
Aquaphor Lip Repair
This five-star product is top-rated for good reason. It soothes and hydrates extremely chapped, cracked lips, so you’re left with a soft, kissable pout. Shoppers say they won’t get anywhere without it — and you won’t have to either, but the lip repair comes in a pack of two.
If Your Lips Could…Look Better With Makeup On
NYX Professional Makeup Smooth Whip Matte Lip Cream
This newly launched lip whip is like a hydrating balm and lipstick in one. It’s available in over 10 highly pigmented and long-lasting shades that glide on smoothly and stay all day. No more worrying about flaky, dry lip color cramping your style.
If Your Body Is…Flaky All Over
CeraVe Moisturizing Cream
Dry, frigid winter air doesn’t just affect the skin on your face, your body also deserves some TLC during the colder months. But if you want one cream for both, we got you covered. The CeraVe Moisturizing Cream contains three essential ceramides to help protect and repair the skin’s barrier for smoother, silkier skin.
If Your Body Is…Dull and Pale
Bondi Self-Tanning Foam
Glowing skin isn’t just reserved for the summer months thanks to Bondi’s Self Tanning Foam. It not only delivers a healthy dose of natural-looking, streak-free color, but it also contains aloe vera and coconut oil to moisturize the skin in the process.
If Your Makeup Could Use Some Love Because…It Makes You Look More Dull
e.l.f. Halo Glow Liquid Filter
The internet-viral e.l.f. Halo Glow Liquid Filter does exactly what the name suggests — it blurs imperfections and gives you a highlighter-worthy boost of radiance. Available in 8 shades, you can wear it alone, blend it with your foundation or apply it to anywhere that could use an instant glow. For just $15, it’s a great dupe for other pricier alternatives on the market.
If Your Makeup Could Use Some Love Because…You Want It to Hydrate Your Skin
Revlon Illuminance Skin-Caring Foundation
Revlon Illuminance Skin-Caring Foundation has 5% squalane and hyaluronic acid to help hydrate the skin while also improving its texture and elasticity. It offers medium coverage, but you can build on the 28 shades if you want to really erase blemishes.
