If your skin is on the dry side, a moisturizer with a rich, creamy texture can be a lifesaver. One of our favorites comes from First Aid Beauty — its Ultra Repair Cream is a go-to for Strategist skin-care expert Tembe Denton-Hurst. She has an “obsession with looking like a dewy dumpling” and uses the cream as the first of her two-step facial routine. The moisturizer is “nourishing without being too thick and doesn’t feel oily or like it’s just sitting there. It sinks right in,” Denton-Hurst says. It’s also formulated for sensitive skin with no drying alcohols or artificial fragrances on its ingredient list — and contains soothing colloidal oatmeal to boot. Right now, you can get this ultrahydrating cream for 20 percent off with code FALL4FAB on First Aid Beauty’s website. (This discount is comparable to the discount that only top-tier Sephora members get during the retailer’s seasonal beauty savings events, so you can rest assured this is a very good deal). Since flaky-skin season is just beginning, it’d be a smart move to snag a jar now and be prepared for when your skin starts to feel parched.
