Local Skincare Brands To Beat Dry Skin

We adore skincare brands that create products for specific needs. So, we’ve compiled a list of beautiful local products that will help keep your skin moisturised, hydrated and glowing while we wait for more of those Joburg summer rains. Here’s how to get your skin poppin’ hunny!


After many years of being in the industry, Elemis knows a thing or two about combining nature, science and aromatics to create a skincare line with products for every condition. They also know that dry, thirsty skin needs special attention, which is why they created a whole range to hydrate skin and relieve dryness. The Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream SPF 30 Anti-Wrinkle Day Cream With SPF 30 helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in 14 days. Plus this cream has been formulated with a revolutionary blend of sunscreen to offer superior protection from our harsh winter sun.

Lulu & Marula

We adore Lulu & Marula’s all-natural skincare products, handmade with care in South Africa, simply because local is lekker. Their Nourishing Treatment Oil, is perfect for normal, dry, mature and damaged skin types. Featuring a mix of super-oils, like marula, red raspberry and argan, one application of this rich and potent oil will deeply hydrate your facial skin, leaving it soft, smooth and glowing.


The famous beauty therapy hub has its own line of products, which means you can take that spa experience home all the time. Designed for skin that needs more moisture, the Sorbet Hydro Skin Night Cream, targets tired, dehydrated skin, bringing it back to life with new brilliance.


This needs no fancy introduction as it’s a favourite among South Africans, and for good reason. But besides using it to prevent and minimise scars, and improve dark marks and skin tone, Bio-Oil is one of the best products to use on very dry skin – even on your face. Apply after showering and feel the difference to dry skin immediately. You can find it in all leading pharmacies and retail stores.


Soil, based in KwaZulu-Natal, makes an eco-ethical range of products which feature 100% certified organic essential oils, organic massage oil blends and bodycare products. When your skin is feeling parched, quench its thirst with their Organic Citrus Scented Shea Butter. Its fresh blend of citrus essential oils will detox your skin and leave it feeling invigorated and soft.



This local brand believes in providing you with health-giving properties by harnessing the best of nature with science. The Ruby Marine Overnight Hydrating Mask, with wildflower honey and marula oil soothes and hydrates your skin while you sleep.


Born out of a love for nature, Oh-Lief’s range of products are all natural and made with certified organic ingredients. The Olive Hand and Facial Wax, featuring evening primrose and jojoba and apricot kernel oil, offers an intensive moisture treatment for dry skin.


Africology offers a luxury, natural and eco-friendly skincare range, fragranced only with pure essential oils. This Tissue Oil, helps to soothe minor burns and irritated skin, and is an excellent all-over body oil to hydrate skin and prevent stretch marks.


Beaucience uses only natural formulations to create unique products that help minimise and delay the effects of ageing. Their Botanical Masque is perfect for a dry climate, as it removes dead skin cells and soothes dry, rough skin. It promotes softer skin and removes impurities, while the Organic Marula Oil, Organic Green Tea as well as Eco Certified Enzymes and Eco Certified Proteasyl ingredients leave the skin feeling revitalized, conditioned and radiant.


Lush’s moisturisers are the product of over 30 years’ research, development and experience. They have a wide range of moisturisers, each tailored to suit a variety of needs, depending on lifestyle and climate. Their Full of Grace serum bar is made with a concentrated blend of organic almond oil and cupuaçu butter to hydrate the skin, as well as rose oil to relieve irritation. It’s an all-in-one therapy for your skin!


This winter be selfie ready with Clarins, and get that glowing skin all season long. The order of the day is to glow in a flash! So, if you’re looking for moisturisers, make-up products and body products, look no further because this is the place for all the face firming products for ageless and amazing skin.


One way or the other, we are all familiar with Eucerin and have either heard of it or used it. If you haven’t used it we suggest you start. They treat the important things that affect your skin condition; lifestyle, nutrition, state of mind, stress and skincare. So, to get your skin looking amazing this winter you need to make sure you give their skin care products a try, but one important thing is to be consistent and stick to your new routine in trying to care for your skin.
