Here Are the Best The Ordinary Products for Dry and Dehydrated Skin

Take care of your skin during the colder seasons.

With fall and winter in full swing, days are becoming shorter and the temperature is dropping. When the sun disappears and the weather becomes colder and more dry, our skin often suffers as a result of the changes. Whether you struggle with keeping your skin hydrated, or have dry skin that gets worse during winter, it can be difficult to find affordable products that work well to keep your complexion at its best.

We’ve put together four products from cult favorite beauty label The Ordinary, including cleansers, serums and more, that will help you tackle the seasonal changes in your skin. Take a look at our favorite products below, and for more from The Ordinary, read all about what happened when our editor changed her entire skincare routine to products from the affordable label here.

Squalane Cleanser

The Ordinary

Working as both a makeup remover and cleanser, The Ordinary’s squalene cleanser is gentle and leaves the skin feeling smooth and moisturized. Filled with Squalane as well as other lipophilic esters that help dissolve makeup as well as impurities. The product comes in a tube, and when rubbed between your palms for approximately 20 seconds it changes its consistency into an oil-like consistency that spreads easily across the face and washes off with water.

The cleanser is gentle and ideal for daily use, and is available over at Cult Beauty for £5.50 GBP ($6.80 USD).

Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

The formula acts as a direct topical supplement, and contains 11 amino acids, phospholipids, alpha/beta/gamma fatty acids, glycerine and more. The cream offers immediate hydration, and also has lasting results with continued use.

The moisturizer is ideal for applying after serums for surface hydration, and can be bought over at Cult Beauty where it retails at £4.90 GBP ($6 USD).

Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5

The Ordinary

Hylauronic Acid is naturally found in the skin, but its function is not hydration. The Ordinary’s formula uses three forms of Hyaluronic Acid that have varying molecular weights, in addition to a crosspolymer which offers multi-depth hydration, as well as visible plumping. The product can be used both morning and night, before heavier creams, and is key in targeting dehydrated skin.

100% Plant-Derived Squalane
