There are many ways to get rid of dry, flaky skin; dermatologist Jennifer MacGregor recommends that you “Look for and test out moisturizers that contain a mix of ‘moisturizers.’” Most of all, it's crucial for dry-skinned people to wear sunscreen everyday, because it’ll protect you from getting even drier skin with a rough texture.
Sunscreen protects you from premature skin aging, hyperpigmentation, and sagging, so to achieve silky, healthy skin, dermatologist Mamina Turegan recommends wearing two sunscreens. She starts with a sunscreen containing zinc oxide; then she goes in with a tinted sunscreen to get rid of a white cast and act as foundation.
Dermatologist Arash Akhavan recommends a physical sunscreen over chemical ones, because it “reflects the sun’s energy away from our skin." A good physical sunscreen with zinc oxide is the CereVe Hydrating Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 50, and Harper’s Bazaar is a fan of EltaMD UV Shield Broad-Spectrum SPF 45.
According to Healthline, a tinted sunscreen has pigments that “reflect visible light in ways that other sunscreens can’t,” so a good sunscreen to try is the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Tinted Mineral Ultra-Light Fluid Broad Spectrum SPF 50. Another recommended tinted sunscreen is Tower28 Beauty SunnyDays, which will provide you with silky skin.
