Suffering From Dry, Tight Skin? Try This Hydrating Range

Most of us suffer from dry, tight skin at some point – and particularly during the winter months. These days, the market might be flooded with products, but it's CeraVe’s Moisturising range which continues to be lauded as the one to drive results. Here’s why…


Developed with dermatologists, CeraVe’s concise range caters to every individual need – from oiliness, to sensitivity and severe dryness. The latter is taken care of with sophisticated formulations containing 3 essential ceramides to protect the skin’s natural barrier and hyaluronic acid to retain the skin’s moisture.

Having been extensively researched and supported by clinical work, ceramides work like a sealant – squeezing our skin’s cells together to prevent hydration from escaping and aggressors from seeping in.

Dryness is taken care of with sophisticated formulations containing 3 essential ceramides and hyaluronic acid to retain high levels of moisture.

On top of that, CeraVe’s skincare products for dry skin use patented MVE technology (MultiVesicular Emulsion), meaning the active ingredients are released slowly, over the course of 24 hours.

Moisturising Cream For Dry To Very Dry Skin, £12 (was £16)​

Dubbed a ‘powerhouse’ moisturiser, this thick cream has earned rave reviews for its kind, gentle formula which makes light work of dry, rough skin. It’s rich – so a little goes a long way – but the barrier-protecting ceramides instantly get to work soothing sore skin and providing instant relief. Ideal for those who are eczema-prone, or anyone that wants to achieve healthier-looking limbs – within days your skin will feel and look noticeably better.

Reparative Hand Cream, ​£4.50 (was £6)

If your hands are over-washed or feeling dry and cracked from the colder air, this foolproof cream will add some softness back. A blend of ceramides, hyaluronic acid and dimethicone work to lock in moisture, protecting your skin’s barrier for instant relief. Plus, it’s lightweight, so you won’t be left with sticky, slippery fingers.

Hydrating Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin,  £7.12 (was £9.50)

This thick, nourishing formula mimics all the benefits of a double cleanse. Just like everything else in the range, it uses ceramides and hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin while removing make-up seamlessly. It’s an essential (and easy) addition to any regime come winter – a time where our skin needs all the moisture it can get. Unlike traditional cleansers, it doesn’t strip the skin, either, so even sensitive types can use it with confidence. Plus, it’s gentle on the skin and can be used on both the face and the body.

Facial Moisturising Lotion SPF25, £9.75 (was £13)

Looking for a good moisturiser with an in-built SPF? Look no further than this one from CeraVe. Suitable for all skin types, but especially those suffering from dryness, it’s incredibly lightweight, delivering moisture and protection simultaneously. It absorbs quickly into the skin, and contains three essential ceramides and hyaluronic acid to protect the skin’s barrier and retain the skin’s natural moisture. Unlike some SPFs, this one is non-comedogenic (so won’t clog pores) and is suitable for acne-prone skin.
