Living with dry skin isn't easy. You want a skincare cocktail that provides a plump, smooth, flake-free canvas. Easy, right? If only. That's why we're here to break down the exact regimen you need to follow every day and night—plus a quick, simple weekly pampering session (you're welcome). Your new routine, right this way.

The morning is all about hydration and protection. Here are your staples.

Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Hydrating Cleanser

$9

Amazon

Cleanser

A gentle hydrating wash is best for daily use—you don't want to disrupt your complexion and make matters worse.

Murad Hydrating Toner

$30

Amazon

Toner

An alcohol-free toner will safely refresh your face and prepare it for products to follow. Be sure to choose one with moisturizing properties.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum

$36

Ulta

Serum

Hydration from a water-based serum infused with hyaluronic acid will last all day long. This one is lightweight enough to layer underneath your moisturizer.

Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream

$65

Amazon

Moisturizer

Also choose a water-based option here. Infusing with H2O is truly the way to keep dry skin from flaking and forming patches throughout the day.

Invisible Shield SPF 35

$34

Glossier

Sunscreen

Lastly, you'll want to slather on some good old SPF. No matter the season, you need to keep your skin safe from the environment. A serum-like formula won't give you a streaky white cast.

Evenings are for repairing the skin. During a long day of environmental exposure, our pores go through a lot.

Beautiful Skin Cleansing Lotion

$10

No7

Cleansing Lotion

To calm the skin after a long day, opt for a cleansing lotion rather than your morning cleanser. The milky texture provides needed moisture right before bedtime.

Facial Spray with Aloe, Herb and Rosewater

$7

Mario Badescu

Toning Mist

Rather than applying an aggressive astringent as a toner, spritz on some natural herbs to keep your skin moist.

Skin Inc. Hyaluronic Acid Serum

$35

Sephora

Serum

An intensive hyaluronic acid serum is great for overnight repair. You'll wake up with plumper, flake-free skin.

Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil

$72

Amazon

Facial Oil

Treat your skin to a luxurious oil such as marula. The rich texture helps heal, reduces redness and provides deep hydration.

Origins Eye Doctor Moisture Care for Skin Around Eyes

$39

Amazon

Eye Cream

We all know the under-eye area is more sensitive than others, but it's a lot drier too. Be sure to use an extra-rich eye cream every night before bed.

Kaplan MD Night Replenishment Concentrate

$69

Sephora

Moisturizer

A good overnight moisturizer is a worthy investment when you're dealing with dry skin. This replenishing cream stimulates cell production.

Take your skincare routine to the next level with a weekly face mask. Not only will it help rejuvenate your complexion from the inside out, but it's also very relaxing.

Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask

$45

Sephora

Face Mask

Obviously you need a hydrating option—bonus points if it's infused with aloe vera. The powerful moisturizing and calming properties of aloe help repair dry skin.
