If you have dry, sensitive skin, you probably already have a good go-to moisturizer, but is it the right one for the sticky summer? Heavy moisturizers can work great in the cold weather, but during hot summer months, they can be the source of skin irritation by trapping a lot of dirt and grime beneath them. Our recommendation is to switch to a highly moisturizing but lighter-weight moisturizer to avoid added summer irritation. If you haven’t had luck with lighter-weight moisturizers being effective for your dry skin, consider Curél® Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer. It’s a heavy-hitter for summer hydration because it provides deep hydration, but it absorbs quickly without the sticky, greasy feel of heavier moisturizers.
You’ll also want to avoid moisturizers with fragrances in them. While they can provide a pleasing aroma, they can also trigger irritants like allergies, hives, psoriasis and more. And it doesn’t matter if the product describes the fragrance as “natural.” Scents are comprised of hundreds of substances. It’s better to just avoid them, for the sake of your skin.
