Dry Skin Routine
Finding a good skincare routine can be difficult and takes some time. Many factors affect your skin’s condition and its needs, such as age, stress, weather, diet, and the products you use. A good start is to identify your skin type and then test and see what products works best for you and your skin. Here is a simple skincare routine for dry skin.
Dry skin is often thin with small pores. It usually has a weaker protective barrier and can therefore sometimes be sensitive. The skin feels tight instead of soft and supple, and dry lines are common.
There are a few products that should be included in every skincare routine– the right cleansing products, proper hydration and some active products that do something extra for the skin. You can always supplement your daily routine with a peeling or face mask based on your skin’s current condition.
Cleansing is essential for fresh and healthy skin. Consider using a softening, gentle oil based cleanser such as Melting Cleansing Balm or Cleansing Oil that effectively cleanses the skin without drying it out. If you want to completely avoid washing your face with water, invest in a fragrance free Cleansing Micellar Water that easily removes dirt and makeup while hydrating the skin. Works perfectly both morning and evening.
Dry skin may need some help to remove dead skin cells on the surface that make the skin appear dull and gray. Treatment Enzyme Peel quickly and gently exfoliates the skin using AHA and BHA acids and gives the skin a nice glow.
Boosters and Serum
After cleansing, boost your dry skin with extra moisture in the form of Moisturising Serum or Ageless Serum. Both products absorb easily into the skin and deeply hydrate.
Dry skin needs both hydration and oil. Go for a day cream and night cream with plenty of moisture, preferably in combination with oil. Our Moisturising and Sensitive series are suitable for dry skin and are available in both day and night creams. Feel free to combine a few drops of Botanical Glow Oil for extra glow. Another tip is to occasionally replace your night cream with our Repairing Overnight Mask which boosts the skin with extra moisture and provides recovery during the night.
The skin around the eyes is thin and more sensitive, which is why dry lines often appear here. Ageless Eye Cream is a very moisturising and softening eye cream that strengthens the skin around the eyes. Our Moisturising Eye Gel is also a deeply hydrating eye gel with a cooling effect that can feel very pleasant. Pat in some extra eye cream both morning and evening if you have very dry skin.
