Skin Care Routine For Dry Skin | Natural Hydration Skincare
Since we covered the skin care routine for oily skin, we want to go into depth about treatment for dry skin. If you have ever experienced flakey or dry skin on your face, you know how sensitive your skin is towards certain skin care products and how expensive it can be to cure your skin.
Before you visit your local drug store, we would like to share some tips and steps that you may want to add to your skin care routine. Typically, you should patch test skin care products before applying them on your entire face. When testing a new product on dry skin, you want to make sure that it will not irritate your skin or cause a rash.
As we walk you step-by-step of a skin care routine for dry skin, please keep in mind that our skin care line caters to different skin types because we know how important it is to use the right ingredients for the best results.
Step 1. Your cleanser is key to hydration
When choosing a cleanser for dry skin, you will want to skip the forming product that will only dry out your skin more. Of course, we recommend that you try our AM/PM Face Cleanser for Dry Skin from our skin care line.
Our AM/PM Facial Cleanser is gentle enough for daily use and will leave your skin feeling clean, hydrated, and softer than ever before. Made with 2% Hyaluronic Acid - this cleanser helps to fill the skin with moisture and tightens the overall complexion. Use it as part of your daily skin care routine to see and feel softer, smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
Step 2. Treat your skin with a blend of natural oils
Go ahead and treat yourself! Try our Radiant Face Oil to give your skin the nutrients that your dry skin may need. This beautiful blend of natural oils will brighten, revitalize, nourish your skin and give you that radiant, glowing complexion that you desire.
Step 3. Serum for the extra layer of hydration
We love a good serum that gives us that healthy glow on our face. Our recommendation is to use a vitamin C serum and layering hyaluronic acid on top for an extra layer of moisture.
Step 4. Light moisturizer is the secret to healing dry skin
When we say light moisturizer, we mean the kind that does not clog your pores. Even with dry skin, you want to use light moisturizers to hydrate but not over saturate your face.
Step 5. Spritz of rose water daily to energize your skin
A spritz of rose water can give your dry skin the extra boost that it needs. Actress Salma Hayek recently shared that she uses rose water every morning before applying her morning skincare routine.
We recommend that you try our Energizing Face Mist with Rose Water to give your face a little pick-me-up! Formulated with hydrating ingredients and natural SPF 50, it's perfect for keeping your skin moisturized and protected all day long. Keep one in your purse or desk for a quick spritz whenever your skin needs a boost!
Step 6. Use a hydrating mask to detox your skin
A mask is the bonus treatment that you give yourself when you need some extra self-care. You can either purchase an already made mask or make an at home mask that will target your specific needs.
While there are plenty of skin care products on the market that can help with protecting and hydrating your skin, nothing beats using a good detox mask for your skin such as our Detox Face Mask with Avocado and Bentonite Clay to assist with deep cleansing your pores and detoxifying the skin.
Things to Avoid When Repairing Dry Skin
Stay away from the following to avoid dehydrating or damaging your skin:
- Over indulging in caffeine,
- Using hot water on your face,
- Harsh chemicals that will damage your skin
Unless you have to drink that extra cup of coffee to stay awake at work, we suggest that you skip it and replace it with a tall glass of water. Speaking of water, avoid using steaming hot water directly on your face as it will dry your face.
As you may know by now, any harsh chemicals such as glycolic acid and peroxide may help with oily skin but when it comes to dry skin, these chemicals can and will damage dry skin. Overall, avoid anything that can cause your skin to get worse.
Remember that each step in the skin care routine for dry skin is essential to your overall well-being. The more you hydrate with water, the healthier your skin will be. The key ingredient to repairing dry skin is to start from within. Once you have a skin care routine that works for your skin type, you will notice a difference in your confidence as well.
