Nobody likes dry skin. It can lower your self-confidence and even cause your skin to itch.
The weather and certain skin conditions can cause your skin to become dry. Even harsh soaps can strip your skin of moisture.
While dry skin is common and mostly harmless, it can worsen if not addressed. Dry skin can be the cause of atopic dermatitis and skin infections.
Want to know how to keep your skin moisturized?
Moisturizers making it to the top of our list is a no-brainer. By the name alone, we already know that it’s essential for dry skin. It’s also an integral part of every skin care routine.
Moisturizers combat dryness by retaining water in the outer layer of your skin.
Humectants in moisturizers attract water into your skin to keep it moist. Moisturizers will also commonly have humectants that smooth out your skin!
Not only do moisturizers keep your skin soft, smooth, and less prone to cracking. Consistent use of moisturizers also prevents the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles!
Choosing a moisturizer that works for you can be challenging, considering the thousands of moisturizing products in the market today.
You may have already tried several products that promise to hydrate your skin but just ended up costing you precious time and money.
To help you in your search, here are some of our most-loved moisturizers! We also included some Lavelier reviews that will convince you of their effectiveness:
Marine Deep Moisturizer
The Lavelier Marine Deep Moisturizer soothes and refreshes your skin while also minimizing the signs of skin aging. We infused it with green tea extract and retinyl palmitate and formulated it for all skin types!
Lavelier reviews for our Marine Deep Moisturizer are nothing but praises. People who tried this moisturizer instantly experienced firm and supple skin after only a few days of application! The Lavelier reviews also testify that our moisturizers helped them heal their eczema.
Our Marine Deep Moisturizer can make your dream of youthful skin come true. One bottle can also last you a long time since you only need to apply a tiny amount per day. You can also use it with our Intensive Facial Peel for the best results.
Moisture Allure Cream
You can also try Lavelier’s Moisture Allure Cream. This lush daily moisturizer can restore and replenish dry skin.
We blended green tea and coral seaweed extract in this formula to create a rich cream. This product can make your complexion look more youthful. It also gives you a radiant glow!
Apply it daily on freshly cleansed skin and massage it for better absorption.
Use it along with our Magnetic MicroLift Masque to get optimal results. This mask has essential oils that make your skin more supple, soft, and firm. It also has age-defying ingredients, giving you that youthful glow.
When And How To Properly Use A Moisturizer
Finding the perfect moisturizer is not all that there is when hydrating your dry skin. You also have to know the proper way to use it.
Want to maximize the benefits of using a moisturizer?
Follow these tips:
Apply your moisturizer right after taking a shower or a bath. Moisturizers work best when you apply them on damp skin. It’s best if you don’t dry off your skin after stepping out of the shower, so your moisturizer can lock in that moisture.
Reapply your moisturizer twice to thrice a day, depending on your skin type. Just make sure that your face is clean before you put on that second (or third) coat.
Your face is not the only part of your skin that dries out, so you have to moisturize other parts, too, especially your hands. Of all other parts of your body, your hands get the most exposure to irritants! Apply a moisturizer on your hands every time you wash them.
You might want to use products with petroleum jelly only at night since they can be greasy.
When using medicated creams, wait for about 30 minutes before applying the moisturizer. Some medications have specific instructions, so make sure to check their labels.
The sun gives us so many things, including our body’s much-needed vitamin D. However, sun exposure can evaporate moisture and oils from your skin, causing it to be dry. Too much exposure to the sun can also result in premature skin aging and cancer.
The sun is most direct between 10 am and 4 pm, so try to avoid going out during these times.
But we often cannot afford to avoid the sun’s harmful rays, so wearing sunscreen is your best option.
Here’s our best sunscreen to keep your skin protected from the sun:
Divine Day Defense SPF 30
When shopping for sunscreen, you have to consider its sun protection factor (SPF). Grab a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 for everyday use.
Don’t be afraid to step out into the sun with our Divine Day Defense SPF 30! This unique sunscreen has a powerful infusion of marine extracts and brightening botanicals. We even added antioxidants to protect your skin from harmful free radicals.
With our Divine Day Defense SPF 30, your skin is also less prone to drying out. You will also notice your complexion becoming more balanced and luminous!
Here’s a tip: you can use our Skin Clair Repair along with our sunscreen to see even more amazing results. This product can minimize the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots on your neck and face. Now you can say goodbye to discolored, unbalanced, and dull skin!
How Often Should I Use Sunscreen?
All the time.
We’re not only talking about your trip to the beach. You have to apply sunscreen every. single. day.
It doesn’t matter if it’s cloudy—the sun’s harmful UV light can still pass through the clouds. You should also wear sunscreen even when you’re at home!
Apply sunscreen to dry skin 15 minutes before stepping out.
You also have to reapply throughout the day, especially if you’re sweating or swimming. Take note that the water can reflect the sun’s UV light stronger, so you’ll get sunburned faster.
Protect not just your face but every part of your skin. Although sunscreens do an excellent job keeping away the sun’s harmful UV rays, covering up is always a good idea to stay safe.
Put on sunglasses or wide-brimmed hats too. Don’t worry if you need to put on makeup. You can still add sunscreen to your routine.
It’s very refreshing to clean your face and body at the end of a long day, especially if you’ve been exposed to pollution and dirt.
However, some soaps, shampoos, and detergents remove your body’s natural oil, thus stripping your skin of moisture.
Find a soap that is mild and has added fats and oils. The best option for dry skin is to find gentle cleansers, especially those with added moisturizers.
Avoid products with dye, fragrance, and alcohol. Instead, look for a product labeled as hypoallergenic.
Here are some of our most gentle cleansers, perfect for everyday use:
Biology Mousse Cleanser
According to one of our Lavelier skincare reviews, the Biology Mousse Cleanser makes the skin flawless, clean, healthy, and soft!
The best part? We infused it with a humectant, glycerin, to make sure it also hydrates your skin. We also included Lavelier’s signature ingredient—coral seaweed! It’s rich in calcium known to regulate the skin’s lipid barrier processes!
Use our Biology Mousse Cleanser before applying the Marine Deep Moisturizer for optimal results.

Intensive Facial Peel
Rubbing or scratching your skin may aggravate the symptoms of dry skin and even cause infection.
Avoid using scrub brushes and sponges to prevent damaging your skin. Use them lightly if you have to.
To exfoliate, you can use our Intensive Facial Peel instead. It will smooth out your skin thanks to its infusion of nutshell powder. This dynamic exfoliator also includes the age-defying abilities of coral seaweed. Now you’ll have a more youthful, fresh, and cleaner appearance!
Lavelier reviews say that using the facial peel helped them get rid of dry skin! People love how the product is very effective in removing dead skin cells. Satisfied customers also left Lavelier reviews saying that this facial peel made their skin look brighter.
Here’s the good news: it’s not harsh to sensitive skin! According to Lavelier reviews, our clients did not have any irritation from this product at all. It works for both oily and dry skin.

Another exfoliator in this list is the Seascape Body Scrub. This gentle exfoliant has antioxidant-rich coral seaweed extract. Using this will help improve flaky skin, too. Apply this body scrub weekly to experience clear, smooth, and fresh skin.
According to Lavelier skincare reviews, the body scrub also works for acne outbreaks! Our clients got results as early as day one.
Fine Line Eye Serum
You can moisturize your eye area with the Lavelier Fine Line Eye Serum. We formulated it with the skincare superstar hyaluronic acid to give you its intense moisturizing benefits! This anti-aging ingredient can retain water in your skin by drawing moisture from the air. We used the salt form of hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate, for our Fine Line Eye Serum.
People who use this product wrote in Lavelier skincare reviews that the serum is “worth every penny.” You can use this either in the morning or at night. You can even apply it twice a day!
Coral Luminous Masque
Step up your skincare routine with our Coral Luminous Masque. Like our Fine Line Eye Serum, this mask also has an infusion of hyaluronic acid. We included essential oils in our formulation to help soothe dry skin. We also added sea algae extract to help make your complexion more lustrous and balanced.
You can use the mask every four weeks to get optimal results. Ensure that your face is clean before gently applying the mask on your face. You can also massage the remaining serum into your skin. People using this product wrote on Lavelier reviews that the treatment gets better every time.
There are many benefits to using petroleum jelly. This thick, odorless substance prevents your skin from drying. How? Think of petroleum jelly as a greenhouse roof that keeps your skin from losing moisture.
Petroleum jelly works well on cracked and severely dry skin. It is more effective in retaining water in your skin than lotions. And since petroleum jelly is similar to natural skin proteins, it can control many problems such as chapped lips and eczema.
