Dry skin typically leads to rough patches which very often feel irritated and tight. Irritation can become worse after cleansing if not done with the right products. 

For anyone with dry skin, your skin can become more prone to other problems if not taken care of.

Dry and flaky skin doesn’t look good and is usually very itchy. Skinsider has the perfect mix of dry skin products to help nourish and hydrate if you struggle to keep your skin moisturised. These products from our favourite K-Beauty brands are designed to replenish thirsty skin and bring a balanced look. Take a look and see which dry skincare products can work for you.

Dealing with dry skin isn’t just a case of popping on an expensive moisturiser and waiting for results. People can have dry skin for many reasons, from a change in hormones and your work environment to things you can’t even control. Just think of how your skin (and lips) can feel when there’s a change in the weather.

With dry skin caused by so many factors, it helps if the products you’re using can work with your specific needs, and we think our handpicked products can do just that.

How can K-beauty products help with dry skin?

Korean beauty products are formulated to work in tandem to improve texture and appearance. While it is ok to have some combination products (e.g. a cleanser/toner hybrid), understanding that specific products should address specific dry skin problems is important.

Looking specifically at K-Beauty, when we want to tackle dry skin, consider which moisturisers, serums (very underrated), cleansers and essences suit you best.

How can essences help dry skin?

Essences are the unsung heroes of improving dry skin. It is best to think of them as a pre-moisturiser to increase hydration levels before using a moisturiser.

When using one, you’ll tend to find they feel thinner than serums. Because they usually have a low pH, they balance dry areas on the skin and allow for greater absorption from using a moisturiser afterwards.

What K-Beauty brands are best for tackling dry skin?

Firm favourites among the Skinsider family would include:

If these names are new to you, one of the best to try out would be COSRX. Their dry skin products are incredibly popular with customers. Their calming foam cleanser, Advanced Snail creams, and Full Fit range work fantastically on dry areas.

My skin has trouble retaining moisture. What products can help?

It is very common to use moisturisers and find that your skin won’t take them as you hope. If this sounds familiar to you, you’ll need to include some protective creams to strengthen skin barriers.

COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream and Heimish Artless Glow Base are two protective sun creams that help when you want the skin to retain moisture.

My dry skin creates red patches. What can I do?

Using a dry skin product, only to see your skin turning red and becoming irritated, is quite annoying. If this has happened to you, know that the skin is very likely reacting harshly to a product. You’ll want to get calming products that control redness, especially if they contain ingredients like aloe leaf extract. 

The Benton Aloe range can help with this. We also would advise trying fragrance-free or alcohol-free products like COSRX Hydrium Watery Toner, as alcohol can typically be a source of skin irritation.

My skin is dry from sun damage. What products should I be using?

Sun damage which leads to dry skin can be very annoying, especially as irritation can linger into the evening and night. When skin is sun-damaged, you’ll want more intense hydration without skin reacting badly.

Sun creams and overnight masks are magical, and something like COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Spa Overnight Mask will help from being a lightweight cream (it can also be used as a standard moisturiser when your skin needs it).

What can I use if dry skin starts giving me acne problems?

While oily skin can leave pores prone to blackheads, dry and damaged skin can be an invitation for oil to get in there and create acne or spots. To tackle acne on dry skin, it is best to repair and revive.

Beauty of Joseon Repair Serum is a customer favourite and works to promote hydration. Benton has some great masks, which can soothe skin and stimulate new cell growth. If acne is a big concern for you, we have a full range of acne products for dry skin here.
