If you were born with dry skin, you know the struggle. It gets red. It gets inflamed. It gets flaky. Not pretty. And winter makes it all worse. Rather than sticking it out for the next few months, we turned to Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Joyce Imahiyerobo-Ip from Vibrant Dermatology in Wellesley, MA for some product advice (and relief). Here are her top three products for dehydrated skin.

Cerave Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin
Not only does Dr. Ip sings its praises, but also do the thousands of people who give it a five-star rating. This thick moisturizing cream contains oils and ceramides, which are lipids that help to repair the skin's barrier function and prevent inflammation.
Avène Thermal Spring Water
If you also suffer from sensitive skin, Dr. Ip recommends Avène’s Thermal Spring Water spray. It’s made with trace minerals and silica to condition and reduce irritation while leaving a soothing barrier of lightweight moisture over the skin.
