8 Creams to Quench Your Skin’s Thirst

It's important to keep your skin hydrated and glowing during both the cold winter and hot summer months, with the effect of high and low temperatures wreaking havoc on the skin. Heat dries the skin, whether it be from the sun or from the heater to keep you warm, so it is important to keep your skin hydrated to avoid it from looking dry and emphasising any lines. To combat the feeling of dry and uncomfortable tightness in the skin we have found 8 moisturisers that will hold your hand through the winter months right into the summer ones.

One cream we love is Skin Virtue's Pure Nourish Moisturising Cream. It intensely nourishes the skin and strengthens the skin barrier, which helps reduce the amount of water vapour evaporating from the surface of your skin, giving you that enviable glow.

French skincare brand Yves Rocher's moisturiser from its Hydra Végétal range is what your skin needs for intense hydration. The gel-cream formula works to hydrate the skin for up to 48 hours, leaving the skin feeling soft and supple.

If you have oily or acne-prone skin, Summer Fridays has created the Cloud Dew Oil-Free Gel Cream with you in mind. The lightweight moisturiser covers the skin with three types of hyaluronic acid to plump the skin without clogging up the pores.

The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + Beta Glucan is no ordinary moisturiser with the water-based gel boosting with amino acids, ceramides and beta glucan, which help prevent cell damage and is designed to plump fine lines, and works overtime to tackle dryness.

For a refreshing and cooling cream that will hydrate your skin, reach for Compagnie de Provence's Algue Velour Sorbet Cream. Made with seaweed and sweet almond oil from Provence, the cream not only leaves the skin feeling silky smooth but it also shields it from pollution.

Milk Makeup's Vegan Milk Moisturiser is a vegan's skincare dream come true. Made with fig milk and oat milk, the daily moisturiser can be used day and night and aims to be absorbed quickly and to leave the skin feeling bouncy.

Dr. Jart+ is helping dry, tired-looking skin get the burst of hydration it needs to look refreshed with its Vital Hydra Solution Biome Water Cream. Its blend of hyaluronic acid and an exclusive microbiome technology from Korea, make the day and night cream your skin's bff in strengthening its natural moisture barrier.

Etat Pur is another skincare brand that has embraced the gel cream formula, offering skin a cooling burst of moisture. Designed to hydrate the skin, the gel cream penetrates the skin barrier quickly and because of its light texture it doesn't leave the skin feeling weighed down during the day beneath it and your make-up.
