‘Tis the season of dry skin! Dry skin season (aka Fall & Winter) usually begin in the months of October, and can last all the way until February. Basically the months when it starts to get really cold outside to the point where you don’t want to leave your bed. During these chilly months, your skin becoming dry is nothing out of the ordinary. When the air outside is cold and dry, the water and moisture in your skin evaporates more quickly, causing the skin to become flaky at times.
Of course there’s nothing a good moisturizer can’t fix when it comes to skincare. Moisturizer is indeed essential to your routine, as it acts as a barrier when replenishing and holding your skin’s water content. Although moisturizer has its significance, it doesn’t have to be expensive at all. Here are some of the top drugstore moisturizer picks that are under $20, so that you can have smooth, healthy & hydrated skin all season long and go easy on your bank account.
