Your Ultimate Dry Skin Routine
READY TO NAIL YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE? YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE.
Dry skin is characterized by fewer oil-producing glands on the face and body, and therefore lacks oil because it produces less sebum than normal skin. This lack of sebum means the skin is without the lipids it needs to retain moisture and to build a strong barrier to protect against external aggressors.
Dry skin tends to be uncomfortable, flaky, and itchy with the worst areas typically near the eyebrows and around the corners of the nose and mouth.
HOW TO HYDRATE
SULFATE-FREE CLEANSER - Avoid cleansers that are formulated with sulfates. Sulfates are surfactants, cleansing agent that cut oil from the skin. They are too harsh for dry skin and will strip the moisture out of the skin after every cleansing.
ALCOHOL-FREE TONER - Follow with your skincare routine immediately after cleansing. Choosing an alcohol-free toner will help to lock in some moisture. If your skin is flaking, soothing ingredients like aloe vera or rose water will help.
NIGHTLY MOISTURISER - Using moisturiser at night is especially important for dry skin as during the day, skin is in protection mode fending off the UV rays and pollution. At night however, your skin is at rest and permeability is at its highest, allowing the active ingredients to absorb deeply within the skin to tackle your dry skin concerns.
