If you have dry skin, you know the frustrating feeling of waking up with tight, raw skin, or watching your face flake off by noon. And if you don’t normally have dry skin, and winter is just kicking your butt this season, then welcome to the club—we’re sorry to see you here.
The good thing is, dry skin doesn’t have to be this awful, all-consuming thing in your beauty routine, as long as you use the right products. Which means throwing out that crappy body-and-face moisturizer you’ve had in your drawer for eight years and picking up a formula that really, truly works, like one of these seven under-$15 moisturizers. Each one of them is filled with super-hydrating ingredients, like glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and nut oils, which are guaranteed to stave off itchiness and dry-skin flakes.
