Dry skin can be a problem that affects many people of all ages and skin types. It can be caused by a number of factors, including harsh weather, hot showers, environmental aggressors, and even genetics. However, there is a solution - and that’s finding the perfect moisturiser. 

A good moisturiser helps to lock in moisture and hydrate your skin, leaving your skin feeling smooth, nourished and healthy, but with so many moisturisers out there in the world, it’s hard to know which one is best for your dry skin. 

Our moisturisers all contain Himalayan Active Water which has been scientifically proven to accelerate skin cell renewal in the epidermis for healthier, more resilient skin. 

At Herbal Essentials, we have 3 moisturisers which work wonders for dry skin. 

Get Up & Go Cream:

Get Up & Go Cream is a popular choice among our customers. Perfect for everyday use, fast absorbing, lightweight and non comedogenic. It contains 96% ingredients of natural origin including emollients, which help to soften and hydrate the skin, whilst maintaining your skin barrier, Wheat Germ Oil, full of antioxidants to help soothe the skin whilst visibly boosting hydration throughout the day and Shea Butter to nourish and moisture skin whilst protecting it from environmental aggressors.

Having been clinically proven to provide instant skin hydration by +84%*, it’s no wonder that this moisturiser is a staple of so many people’s shelves. 

Nourishing Cream

Nourishing Cream is a rich moisturiser that provides intense hydration without feeling heavy on the skin - clinically proven to provide instant hydration by +50%*.

It contains Apricot Oil to help soothe skin, help improve skin tone and maintain softness whilst helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines. Aloe Vera to soothe skin and help reduce the appearance of blemishes whilst fighting acne and Sweet Almond Oil which is enriched with numerous vitamins to help soothe skin and protect from environmental aggressors. 

Rest & Renew Night Cream

Whilst you can use the above to as night creams as well, some people prefer to use a slightly thicker cream in the evening to deeply hydrate skin overnight. Our Rest & Renew Night Cream is a thick moisturiser perfect for all skin types. It contains natural AHAs which help to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, minimise the appearance of pores and fine lines whilst keeping your skin barrier strong and protected. 


The key to finding the best moisturiser for dry skin is to look for products that have hydrating, gentle ingredients in them such as emollients, glycerin and Hyaluronic Acid. It’s also important that you look for products that are non-comedogenic and don’t contain alcohol, as they are less likely to irritate or clog your pores. 

A common misconception is that you don’t have to moisturise if you have oily skin; however, this is not true. No matter your skin type, it’s important that you moisturise morning and evening, every day to maintain a healthy and balanced skin barrier. 

Top tip: Apply your moisturiser on damp skin to lock in as much moisture as possible and deeply hydrate the skin.
