8 Facial Moisturizers for Hydrated, Healthy Skin All Year Long

At this point, we’ve established that everyone needs a moisturizer in their daily skincare routine, right? However, dry skin needs a little more love in the hydration department to help combat things like redness, flakes, eczema, and all-around discomfort. (You know that dry, tight feeling that happens when you skip your moisturizer or use the wrong one? That’s what we don’t want.)

Luckily, there are a ton of brilliant moisturizers, creams, and gels specifically formulated to soothe, rehydrate, and relieve dryness. Here are some of the very best moisturizers that will help restore skin’s moisture barrier and give off a healthy, youthful glow!

Tatche The Dewy Skin Cream

Don’t let the gorgeous indigo and gold jar fool you: Tatcha’s The Dewy Skin Cream means business. Packed with antioxidant-rich Japanese purple rice and hyaluronic acid, it acts as a shield against environmental stressors like pollution and replenishes moisture, leaving the skin looking lit-from-within (no highlighter needed).

EltaMD Barrier Renewal Complex Face Moisturizer

EltaMD’s Barrier Renewal Complex Face Moisturizer contains five different types of ceramides. It works super well in preventing water loss and improving barrier function in just a few uses, so skin looks less dehydrated and more on the dewy side. It also contains Vitamin E, which fights free radicals, as well as squalane, biotin, and an enzyme blend that soothes inflamed skin. It’s a lovely moisturizer for the neck, too, where the skin is thinner.

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream

A great moisturizer for redness-prone skin is Aveeno’s Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream, as it’s packed with soothing oatmeal and hydrating glycerin, as well as panthenol—a form of Vitamin B5 that has anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also fragrance-free, which is always ideal for easily irritated skin types.

Biossance Squalane + Omega Repair Cream

We could easily sing the many praises of squalane—hydration, smoothing, firming—but the ingredient, which stars alongside omega fatty acids and ceramides in Biossance’s souped-up Squalane + Omega Repair Cream, is also hugely reparative in terms of restoring skin-surface lipids and protecting the skin barrier.

Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions Centella Sensitive Cica-Cream

Cica, a catchy portmanteau for centella asiatica, is a leafy herb that, when utilized in skin-care products, can help soothe and repair irritated skin. Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions Centella Sensitive Cica-Cream was made with sensitive skin in mind, and also contains Vitamin B3 for long-term hydration.

COSRX Full-Fit Propolis Light Cream

Want a cream that’s a glass of water for your skin, sans waiting all day for it to sink in? Then this rick K-beauty moisturizer will do the trick. It’s made with antibacterial ingredients, too, so you can stress less about any random acne flare-ups.

Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides

If the pleasantly whipped texture doesn’t have you at hello, the triple-threat of ceramides, sodium hyaluronate (a super-hydrating cousin of hyaluronic acid), and the brand’s signature blend of six rare African oils will seal the deal.

Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream

Laneige’s Water Bank Moisture Cream is an antioxidant-rich formula that contains a special blend of vegetable extracts taken from Brussels sprouts, artichokes, and lima beans, which help to nourish and hydrate dry skin types. As if that isn’t enough, it also works to brighten and smooth out skin texture, ultimately leaving your complexion with a “glass skin”-like appearance instantly and over time.
