The Best Natural Skincare Products for Your Dry Skin

No matter the season, my skin tends to feel more dry than oily, especially since giving birth. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite natural skincare products for battling chronic dry skin.

I’ve tried plenty of organic, natural, clean, non-toxic, and other enter-buzzword-here skincare products but the below I’m sharing are my tried-and-true favorites to help me nourish and hydrate my skin from within.

Hold up! Is natural skincare really the best choice?

Between the prevalence of greenwashing and toxin-packed ingredients that could cause harm to your body, it’s essential to know exactly what you’re putting on your skin. That’s because your skin is your largest organ, and it absorbs everything you put on it. Once absorbed, it heads right to your bloodstream. Pretty crazy, huh?

When it comes to the word ‘natural,’ this word isn’t regulated at all in the beauty industry, so companies can pack in whatever ingredients they’d like under this label.

This labeling loophole leaves the heavy-lifting of ingredient research to the consumer. Some apps like Think Dirty or the EWG Skin Deep Cosmetics Database help you sift through ingredients and learn more about the product you’re using.

You can also choose to shop retailers that do the legwork for you and have strict vetting processes for the brands they stock and sell.

1. Noni Glow by Kora Organics

Formulated with glow-inducing ingredients such as rosehip oil, pomegranate oil, and noni extract, Noni Glow by Kora Organics was the first product I absolutely loved when my skin was at its driest. It left my skin feeling super soft and smooth, plus it gave me a dewy glow. I used it consistently day and night until I felt like my moisture levels were back up, and now it’s reserved for extra-dry days.

Also, my husband spilled half a bottle on the bathroom floor, and I still haven’t forgiven him. Some may say it’s petty; I say it’s justified and completely reasonable. 😉

When to use it: this oil should be your final step in your skincare routine.


2. The Pill by The Nue Co.

This treatment is formulated with plant-derived AHAs to help gently resurface your skin. The Pill by The Nue Co. contains a daily dose of all necessary nutrients required for healthy, supple skin. Think of this product as helping to shed your layer of dry, dull skin. Then, targeted ingredients help to amp up your skin’s natural moisture, all while supporting long-term results and hydration.

I love it because it gives my skin the soft, supple texture that feels unattainable when my skin is super dry. It helps get rid of all of those small pesky textured bumps.

When to use it: in the morning on clean, dry skin. Leave it on undisturbed for a few minutes to boost the results.


3. Restoring Face Serum by Hugh & Grace

Made with ingredients you can actually read, the Restoring Face Serum by Hugh & Grace is super hydrating without feeling overly greasy. You’ll find nourishing ingredients such as Vitamin C, passionfruit oil, Vitamin E, and more. Plus, Hugh & Grace prides itself on using clean and natural skincare ingredients that won’t disrupt your delicate endocrine system.

I love how I can easily apply it throughout the day without looking like I just slathered on a million skincare products. I keep a bottle on my desk to keep my skin feeling nourished at all times.

When to use it: in the morning on clean, dry skin or throughout the day as needed.


4. Ultra Hydrating Mask by Follain


This dual-purpose hydrating mask is fluffy and delicately whipped to provide an intense rush of moisture to your skin—ingredients like mango seed butter, rosehip oil, chia seed oil help to soften and nourish. It’s formulated with rich antioxidants and omegas that provide deep hydration.

I love this mask because it can be used as a standalone mask or as a step in your nightly skincare process. It’s also pillow-safe and dries clear.

When to use it: slather it on at night under your face oil or use alone as a targeted mask.


5. Hydrating Accelerator by Josh Rosebrook

Formulated with calendula to calm and aloe vera juice to moisturize and soothe, the Hydrating Accelerator by Josh Rosebrook is the perfect complement to any skincare routine. It’s safe for all skin types, so this natural skin care product is a great option for those with either dry or oily skin.

I love this moisturizing spray because it is instantly refreshing and ultra-hydrating. It’s cooling and soothing, all while leaving my skin feeling plump. I spritz it throughout the day, after the shower, and keep it handy while traveling.

When to use it: in the morning on cleansed skin before your serum or throughout the day as needed. Perfect for travel!
