1. Pyunkang Yul - Essence Toner 


Let's talk about toners! Toners are used for various reasons in skin care. They prep the skin for your next skin care step and help to restore the skin's natural pH balance.


The Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner has become one of the most beloved products in the K-Beauty community. It has a minimalist ingredient list, is free of any extra fragrance and adds a punch of hydration to the skin. 


On a deeper note the formulation itself not only provides hydration, but also promotes texture improvement, antioxidant benefits, and soothing properties. It is no surprise that it is also one of our best-selling products.

2.  COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Power Essence 


Speaking of hydrating products, say hello to the incredibly hydrating COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence. Essences are often a thicker consistency than toners, and are used to boost hydration.


As the name of this essence hints, Snail Mucin is the star ingredient used in this essence. Mucin has become wildly popular in the K-Beauty community for its moisturizing and skin-repairing properties


This essence is thick and feels slightly tacky on the skin but absorbs well into the skin. Containing only 12 ingredients, this essence has our vote on the minimalist list. This is a must-have for any dry skin routine!

5. Beauty of Joseon - Relief Sun : Rice + Probiotics


Last but not least in our dry skin routine is sunscreen. Sunscreen is used to protect the skin against UV radiation, prevent sunburn and damage to the skin. Using sunscreen also helps to prevent the development of hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and uneven skin.


The Beauty Of Joseon Relief Sun : Rice + Probiotics SPF50+ PA++++ sunscreen is not only our top-selling SPF, but it also works amazing for dry skin.


It is lightweight and sinks into the skin without leaving a white cast, and features rice ferment as its star ingredient. Rice ferment is used to brighten and soothe the skin while also providing moisture and nourishment to the skin.


Sunscreen should be used year round in order to best protect the skin, and this one might just become your skins BFF.

What else can I do to prevent dry skin?


Keeping skin hydrated isn't only about skincare. Some tips for dry skin are: 


1. Avoid hot showers: Hot water can further dry out your skin, so it's best to take lukewarm showers instead. 

2. Humidify the air: Dry air can worsen dry skin, so consider using a humidifier in your home or office to add moisture to the air.

3. Avoid over-washing: Washing your skin too often can strip away its natural oils and make dryness worse. Try to limit washing your face to once or twice a day and use a gentle, non-foaming cleanser.


Hydrating dry skin may seem like a challenge, but with these recommendations and tips we hope your skin care journey can be a little easier. And remember finding the right routine takes time because It's all about discovering what works best for your skin. 


 Let's get ready to enjoy the process of showing your skin you care, together!
