KBeauty for Dry Skin thumbnail

What’s your skin type? If you don’t know, you can check out our previous blog to find out what skin type you might have. Today I will be recommending products to those with dry skin who often struggle with retaining moisture in their skin and are left with a tight, rough, dry feeling in their skin. Hydrating products that will provide moisture for dry skin types are the ones to look out for.


 Here’s a TOP 8 List of K-Beauty Products for Dry Skin Types: 

Cleansing - HUANGJISOO Pure Daily Foaming Cleanser Moisturizing 

Huangjisoo Pure Daily Foaming Cleanser Moisturizing

Those looking for vegan-friendly skincare products will adore this cleanser too, as it contains 99.5% vegetable and plant-based ingredients. This cleanser features oatmeal as the key ingredient to nourish and hydrate the skin. Dry skin types will benefit from this soft and gentle cleanse as it doesn’t strip the skin of moisture after cleansing. 

Toner - ISNTREE Hyaluronic Acid Toner ISNTREE Hyaluronic Acid Toner

A hidden gem in the K-Beauty community - this toner is one of the more viscous/”thick” than others I’ve tried and contains hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, beta-glucan, betula alba, and aloe. It is also a clean beauty item that does not contain any parabens, mineral oils, sulfates, fragrance, or artificial color. This toner is an award-winning toner in Korea praised for penetrating the skin with deep hydration for dry skin types.

Essence - COSRX Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence 

COSRX Hyaluronic Acid Essence

COSRX - simply put it - makes amazing products such as this essence that adds an extra layer of moisture with ingredients like hyaluronic acid. It’s a great addition to your routine if you have dry or dehydrated skin that needs an extra dose of hydration to reinforce and strengthen the moisture barrier. 

Serum - INNISFREE Olive Real Serum Ex

Innisfree Olive Real Serum

There is not enough hype around this serum compared to other Innisfree products, but this serum is rich with olive oil, oleic acid, tocopherol, and vitamin E to effectively nourish and soften rough, dry skin. 

Mask - JM SOLUTION Water Luminous S.O.S Ringer Mask 

JM Soltion Water Luminous SOS Ringer

If you haven’t tried masks from JM Solution yet, you will fall in love with this mask, especially if you have dry, dehydrated skin. This mask boasts a multi-hyaluronic acid complex which includes hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate, sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer, and hydrolyzed glycosaminoglycans to deliver deep-skin hydration that you can feel from the inside-out. 

Daytime Moisturizer - UNIQUE & FUN Fit My Skin Water Drops Cream H2

Unique and Fun Fit My Skin Water Drops Cream

I’ve been stocking up on this moisturizer since it is so great for the daytime since the water drops feature in this cream makes it feel watery and lightweight on the skin - not greasy or heavy! Ingredients like hyaluronic acid, centella asiatica, and green tea offer soothing moisture to last you all day long. 

Nighttime Moisturizer - NEOGEN Black Volume Cream 

Neogen Black Volume Cream

Using a slightly more hydrating cream like this one from NEOGEN is great since it deeply nourishes the skin for overnight so you wake up feeling more replenished. The jelly texture feels great upon application and then spreads over the skin as a great source of hydration that you will feel slightly plumping the skin. You will notice your skin feels more supple and full of moisture the following morning. 

Sleeping Mask - LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

Dry, dehydrated skin can benefit the most out of sleeping masks since they often need the extra moisture. The Water Sleeping Mask is a cult staple of sleeping masks and offers hydration that you will feel from when you sleep to the following day as it adds and locks in moisture to strengthen the skin layer. 

Until the next one,
