The Best Plant-Powered Moisturizers for Dry Skin

CBD Skincare

Dry skin needs special care. A gentle, non-drying cleanser, hydrating toner, and a moisturizing cream or lotion to protect the surface from moisture loss. If your current skincare routine leaves your complexion dull, dry, or irritable, maybe it’s time to change gears, switch to a plant-powered moisturizer made without artificial fragrances and chemicals that can disrupt moisture balance or inhibit your skin’s natural ability to rejuvenate and repair.

BOTA™ plant-powered moisturizers combine the skin balancing potential of CBD with soothing, hydrating plant oils and extracts. Our best moisturizers for dry skin are fortified with the hydration-boosting benefits of hyaluronic acid.    

Hyaluronic Acid Could Be Your Dry Skin Solution

Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like substance, a carbohydrate found in almost every cell in your body, that keeps your skin strong and elastic, your eyes moist, and your joints lubricated. Nearly half of the hyaluronic acid in your body protects your skin.1 

When you’re very young, your skin has all the hyaluronic acid it needs to protect collagen fibers, retain essential moisture, and keep your skin firm, plump and hydrated. But those reserves are vulnerable. Environmental irritants and sun exposure can deplete the amount of hyaluronic acid concentrated in your skin. The production also declines with age. 

Current research shows that adding hyaluronic acid (sodium hyaluronate) to skin serums and moisturizers helps revitalize dry skin. Investigations revealed significant improvement in moisture retention, noticeable changes in skin firmness, and smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With continued use, moisture retention increased up to 96 percent.2  

Revitalizing Dry Skin with BOTA™ CBD Plant-Powered Moisturizers

At BOTA™, we believe everyone deserves high-quality skincare products made without questionable chemicals and compounds that can cause more skin issues than they solve. That’s why BOTA™ skincare products are made with plant oils, extracts, and active botanicals selected for their verifiable skin benefits. Of the many botanicals featured in our skincare line, many natural skincare enthusiasts consider our full-spectrum CBD the most intriguing.

BOTA™ Age-Defying Hyaluronic Acid Serum +Manuka & Ginger Root

Serums and moisturizers nurture and hydrate dry skin in different ways. Moisturizers form a protective barrier on the surface. Serums are much thinner, lighter, and easily absorbed. BOTA™ Age-Defying Hyaluronic Acid + Manuka & Ginger Root contains 200mg of hemp-derived CBD. As the hyaluronic acid boosts hydration levels and support healthy skin function, the ginger root, manuka oil, and meadowfoam soothe irritation while contributing to the serum’s anti-aging potential. For best results, our hyaluronic acid serum should be applied to slightly damp skin after cleansing and toning.3,4,5

BOTA™ Age-Defying Eye Serum + Manuka & Ginger Root

The skin beneath your eyes is far more susceptible to the effects of environmental pollutants, free radical damage, and sleep deprivation than the rest of your face. With fewer oil glands to ensure moisture retention, the delicate eye area is also more prone to dryness.6 BOTA™ Age-Defying Eye Serum + Manuka Oil & Ginger Root is formulated with hyaluronic acid, CBD, and a blend of plant oils selected for their impressive reputation for soothing, protecting, and renewing the delicate under-eye area. For best results, gently dab the serum under your eyes after applying your facial serum but before protecting your skin with your favorite BOTA™ moisturizer. 

BOTA™ Balancing Micellar Cleansing Toner + Witch Hazel  

Healthy skin has a protective, mildly acidic, lipid barrier. When its Ph balance is disrupted by cosmetics, environmental contaminants, UV exposure, or cleansing, your skin is far more susceptible to irritation, infection, and moisture loss. While you may not initially consider a toner part of your moisturizing routine, maybe you should. Using BOTA™ Balancing Micellar Cleansing Toner immediately after cleansing restores your skin’s delicate pH balance with a revitalizing blend of sweet almond oil, chamomile, honeysuckle, hyaluronic acid, and full-spectrum CBD, ingredients selected to compliment the soothing effects of our natural witch hazel. With pH balance restored, dry skin is far more receptive to the active ingredients in serums and moisturizers.7,8   

BOTA™ Hydrating Daily Face Cream + Achiote Seed

While hyaluronic acid serums add a boost of hydration to dry skin, they’re not intended to replace facial moisturizers. Since creams tend to be more emollient than lotions, consider adding BOTA™ Hydrating Daily Face Cream + Achiote Seed to your morning skincare routine. As the CBD and hyaluronic acid in our Hydrating Daily Face Cream support healthy skin function and boosts hydration, the manuka oil, ginger root, and achiote seed oil protects your skin from environmental exposure.8 For best results, apply to damp skin after cleansing and toning. 

BOTA™ Age-Defying Daily Face Lotion + Manuka & Ginger Root

During the day, your skin is hard at work, protecting itself from the effects of environmental toxins. Current research shows that manuka oil, one of the key ingredients in BOTA™ Age-Defying Daily Face Lotion + Manuka & Ginger Root is a potent ingredient that protects the skin from free-radical damage.3 The combined potential of manuka oil, ginger root, CBD, and hyaluronic acid could be just what your skin needs during the day to boost hydration and revitalize dry skin.

BOTA™ Age-Defying Night Cream + Manuka & Ginger Root

While you sleep, your skin has the time it needs to rejuvenate and repair. BOTA™ Age-Defying Night Cream + Manuka & Ginger Root delivers a potent combination of active botanicals selected for their potential to firm, brighten, and revitalize your skin as you sleep. Enhanced with CBD, the hyaluronic acid, ginger root, and manuka oil deliver their potential to improve firmness, balance pigmentation, and improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
