In this article I will give you some ideas of skincare routines that work for different skin types. I will write different articles for each skin type so you know exactly where to look.

Good BASIC skin care has four steps:

  • Cleanse
  • Tone
  • Moisturize
  • Eye cream

Dry Skin


1. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

This basic cleanser is beloved by both dermatologists and editors — it's practically a Best of Beauty staple at this point. "It's inexpensive, available at drugstores, and is soap-free, so it can be wiped off," Jeannette Graf, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, says of the classic sudsmaker. There's zero fragrance and it's very mild (not stripping whatsoever), but it gets the job done.

2. Clarins Cleansing Milk with Gentian

This calming cleanser has a great texture that "leaves your skin very soft." It also "takes away dirt and leaves skin fresh and clean." One reviewer deems it a "fantastic cleanser for sensitive, combination [and] mature skin" because it's "calming, soothing and smells great." And even though it's gentle, it also "thoroughly removes makeup."

3. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel

A nickel-sized drop of this gel feels bouncy underneath fingertips. Adding water will cause it to lather, gently removing dirt and oil. It smells clean (think: cotton or a fresh breeze) and uses hyaluronic acid to keep skin hydrated — long after you lather up.

4. GlamGlow Galacticleanse

This black, glittering goop smells sweet and fruity, melting into a milk with just a little bit of water. Though it feels buttery as you're cleansing, skin feels soft and moisturized (with zero residue) once dry.

5. Chanel Gel Pureté

Looking for an "extremely gentle and pure" cleanser that "melts away impurities"? You may find it in this luxurious face wash. "This is the best cleanser that I have ever used," says one reviewer. "It leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean with a fresh scent."

6. La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser

A little goes a long way with this cleanser for sensitive skin. "You only need about a dime[-size amount], and it foams beautifully," explains one reviewer. Readers rave that it's great for those with combination skin. Another user adds, "this cleanser is even more gentle than Cetaphil and removes makeup thoroughly."


1. Clinique Clarifying Lotion

Clinique’s Clarifying Lotion is a dermatologist-developed formula specially made for dry and very dry skin types. It helps slough off flakes, perfectly priming your face for moisturization. The formula also helps minimize the fine lines caused by dryness.

2. Clarins Extra Comfort Toning lotion

Clarins’ Extra Comforting Toning Lotion is a non-drying formula free of alcohol. Enriched with extracts of aloe vera and marshmallow, it helps moisturize, soften, and nourish your skin. The toner leaves dry skin feeling soft, clarified, and moist. It also feels extremely soothing on your skin thanks to the presence of marshmallow in the formula.

3. Pixi Glow Tonic

Pixi’s Glow Tonic is an excellent exfoliating toner that firms and tightens dry, aging, and dull skin. The product has oxygenating properties that help remove dead skin cells while leaving your skin looking healthy and radiant. Formulated With ginseng and aloe vera, it helps soothe your skin and leaves it with a healthy glow.

4. Mario Badescu Aloe Vera Toner

Mario Badescu’s Aloe Vera Toner is one of their mildest formulas specially made for dry and sensitive skin types. The toner helps soothe irritation while unclogging pores and improving your skin’s texture. It helps maintain the natural moisture balance of your skin with its alcohol-free formula.

5. Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner

Neutrogena’s Alcohol-Free toner is a simple and straightforward product. The mild formula efficiently cleans your face without the harshness of an alcohol toner. It helps remove impurities from your pores while restoring the moisture balance of your skin. This toner helps curb issues such as tightness, redness, and flaking.

6. LUSH Eau Roma Water

LUSH’s Eau Roma Water is specially formulated for dry, aging, and sensitive skin. The two active ingredients in this toner are rose and lavender, which help treat redness, flaking, and irritation. The toner is extremely mild and has a soothing effect on your skin. It effectively combats dryness while improving your skin’s texture with regular use.


1. The Body Shop Seaweed Oil Control Day Cream

This gel moisturizer "goes on light" and leaves combination skin "feeling fresh" and oil-free, according to readers. One reviewer writes, "It moisturizes combination skin perfectly, leaves it matte for makeup application and ... a little goes a long way."

2. Neutrogena Hydro Boost

"My skin is so dry that it cracks open during the winter, which made me believe I needed a super oily and heavy moisturizer. But this milky blue gel changed my mind. It's as light as freaking angel wings and sinks into the skin without a trace, but relieves parched skin immediately. Hi, hyaluronic acid! I've been pairing this with the brand's Hydro Boost Hydrating Face Serum, because I'm greedy!"— Estelle Tang

3. Nivea Soft Moisturizing Creme

This Nivea cream contains both vitamin E and jojoba oil. It absorbs quickly into your skin and hydrates without being overly oily.

4.Avene Hydrance Optimale Riche hydrating cream

This thick, creamy moisturizer is a popular French pharmacy beauty pick. It hydrates your skin and locks in moisture. Its soothing properties help to restore and rebalance dry skin.

5. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

CeraVe is the go-to moisturizer to replenish dry skin. Created by dermatologists, it contains ceramides that help skin retain moisture and protect itself from environmental influences. It’s often recommended for people who have psoriasis and eczema.

Eye Cream

1.Neutrogena Hydro Boost Eye Gel-Cream

This drugstore find is packed with hyaluronic acid, which as you may know helps lock hydration into the skin. It's one of those good-for-everyone picks: It's light enough for oily skin, hydrating for anyone thanks to the potency of the hyaluronic, and the gel texture makes it cool to the touch. We like to swipe this one under makeup in the mornings.

2. La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar Eyes

You can always find something good in a French pharmacy. Luckily, La Roche-Posay products are readily available stateside and that's something for our eyes to get excited about. This formula was the result of studies about the dark circles we get under our eyes. As it turns out, the blue ones are due to a lack of microcirculation, which can result from fatigue and are worse in the morning because we lie horizontally when we sleep. Brown circles can result from sun exposure, genetics, and even excessive rubbing of the eyes. If (like me) you didn't even know eye circles came in two types, don't worry, there's good news: This innovative LRP product was created to target both.

3. Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift

In creating this product, Dermalogica looked to the benefits (who knew!?) of stress. That is to say, stress can help keep us alert, focused, and energized. This lightweight cream aims to create those benefits within our skin care — wild indigo seed brightens and helps reduce circles, while fermented yeast and hyaluronic acid work to firm and lift the area. A cooling metal applicator provides a built-in invigorating effect.

4. Olay Ultimate Eye Cream

Olay is our go-to for serious skin care at drugstore prices, and this lightly tinted, color-correcting eye cream is no exception. A blend of peptides and vitamins help with the three most common skin-care concerns for eyes: 'de-puffing', 'de-circling', and 'de-wrinkling." This one is a great option for quick, no-makeup mornings.

5. SK-II LXP Ultimate Revival Eye Cream

Pitera is the ingredient that has made SK-II the global phenomenon it is today. And while we'd assume it's pretty highly concentrated in its cult-favorite essence, this eye cream has EIGHT times more of the ingredient than any product before it. The result? A rich, deeply hydrating treatment cream that nourishes the area and provides vitamins and nutrients to help brighten, firm, and prevent damage from pollution.

Ok,so this is everything about dry skin. I chose some of the best products according to the best sites about Skincare Products for dry skin. There are both expensive and cheap products that are still extremely good no matter the price.

I really hope you find this helpful and I'll see you in the next article about oily/acne type of skin.
