Try these hydration boosters

Whether it’s on your face, body or both, dry skin can be a tough problem with the flaking, itching and other discomforts it can cause. Luckily, we’ve come up with some of the best products to deal with skin that needs a hydration boost.

Best Products for your Body

Korres Japanese Rose Showerge

If you're feeling dry all over, check out our picks for products that banish dry skin.

In-shower hydration

If you have dry skin, use a moisturizing body wash. One we love for both its ability to sooth dry skin and its subtle floral scent is Korres Japanese Rose Showergel ($19.50 at Sephora). The natural ingredients in this product don't strip skin of its natural moisture, plus it has anti-aging properties to keep skin tight and toned.

Clinique Deep Comfort Body ButterBest body lotion

Extra-dry skin needs maximum moisture, so opt for a rich cream that delivers adequate hydration and absorbs easily. We love Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter ($25 at Clinique), which penetrates deep into dryness-prone skin, leaving it soft and nourished all day. It's particularly helpful on elbows, knees and heels, but feels great everywhere. Use it as soon as you come out of the shower, when skin is still damp.

Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Sugar ScrubSay yes to body scrub

Flaky, dry skin needs a good body scrub to get rid of dead skin cells and get softer. Nothing wakes up and smoothes skin like Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Sugar Scrub ($36 at Sephora). The fresh citrus scent with a hint of spice is a great pick-me-up, while the scrub itself leaves skin smooth and soft.

Best products for your Face

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

If your face is feeling tight and looking flaky, we've got some great hydrating and healing products for you to try.

Gentle cleansing

For a gentle cleanser that won't strip skin of much-needed moisture, you can't go wrong with Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser ($8.49 at Walgreens). Not only is it gentle and free of skin-drying dyes and chemicals, but it's also affordable and leaves skin feeling soft and smooth.

L'Occitane Ultra Rich Face CreamMaximum moisture

Give skin a serious does of moisture with L'Occitane Ultra Rich Face Cream ($39 at Sephora). This decadent moisturizer is rich and creamy but easily absorbed by thirsty skin. Dry, damaged skin is protected and soothed all day with shea butter and wheat and chestnut extracts, which help strengthen and comfort skin.

Ole Henriksen Walnut Complexion ScrubBanish flakes

Help ease dry skin with gentle exfoliation. Try Ole Henriksen Walnut Complexion Scrub ($24 at OleHendrickson.com) to cleanse away impurities and slough off flakey, dead skin. Use once or twice a week to ensure skin stays smooth, soft and healthy-looking.

Fresh Rose Face MaskMoisturize with a mask

A good hydrating mask can do wonders with moisturizing and soothing very dry skin. We love Fresh Rose Face Mask ($55 at Sephora), which quenches dry skin while toning and revitalizing. This gel mask is 50 percent rose water, and contains aloe, cucumber extract and rose oil to further hydrate skin.
