Gel
Has your dry skin reached DEFCON levels? Gels are incredibly lightweight but deliver just as much hydration as a rich cream, thanks to their high water content. Your best bet is one that contains a mix of mighty moisturizers like hyaluronic acid and glycerin and soothers such as rose, cucumber, or aloe vera.

Best for: Dry, sensitive types.
