8 must-try products for dry skin

Product shots by Ramir G. Cambiado

Chapped lips, sore red patches, and flaky skin are becoming a daily thing. Did you know that the colder the season, the drier the skin?

According to Elizabeth McBurney, MD, clinical professor of dermatology at Tulane University, “Skin gets dry because the wind and cold weather irritate it, and the lack of humidity in the air causes it to lose moisture rapidly.”

But don’t fret! You can transform your dry, dull, and flaky skin to breathtakingly supple and luxurious soft in no time with these eight must-try skin care products:

  • Sunflower Beauty Oil Luxe (P299.75)

Sunflower Beauty Oil Luxe is rich in vitamin E and oleic acid to moisturize skin. High oleic acid deeply penetrates skin fast, sealing in generous moisture and nutrients, while antioxidant vitamin E helps keep out skin-damaging environment stressors.
