Possessing very dry skin, the first thing you have to do is drink water because your skin is made up of 64% water. Without it, the skin will appear dull, fine lines, scars pores and wrinkles. After proving enough water for the skin, this is the comprehensive skincare process for dry skin in which there are the best products recommended.
When it comes to taking off your makeup and cleaning your face, avoid skin wipes at all costs. Not only are most full of nasty chemicals, but they’re also incredibly drying. Pick a kind face wash that’ll calm your skin, gently get rid of dirt and won’t leave your face with that horrible “stripped” feeling.
This is the product we suggest:
Its gel-like formula will gently turns into a light foam. It cleans the skinand completely removes makeup (even waterproof) without you having to scrub your eyes or use boiling hot water.
The important thing here is not to use exfoliators with very hard beads. The skin on the face is some of the thinnest skin on the body and when we do things to ourselves we have a higher pain threshold which can lead to damage. If you exfoliate too aggressively your skin can be left raw and veins can be cracked.
Use something like the 100% natural Konjac Sponge that deep cleans skin pores to eliminate blackheads and dirt whilst absorbing excess oils and toxins. Essentially a buffer, it’s very kind to the skin’s surface and can be used on its own or with your cleanser.
The do-it-all beauty wonders
Sometimes you need to go the extra mile in the winter – which is where beauty balms come into their own.
This Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm can be used as a rich cleanser, gentle exfoliant or deeply nourishing balm – to quench areas of dry or dehydrated skin. It contains high levels of wild rosehip oil – a potent antioxidant proven to help repair, firm and smooth the skin – and is combined with geranium, starflower, hemp and rosemary seed oil, to help decongest and enrich the skin, restoring its natural radiance.
Cleansing is an important step in a healthy skin care regime. Not only does it help to remove impurities from your skin – dirt, excess oil, dead skin – it also hydrates it and preps it for moisturisers, serums and masks.
Depending on your skin type, always keep in mind that central heating, wind and cold temperatures will leave your skin dryer than normal so you need a different cleanser from the one you use in the summer. Pick a control cleanser if your skin is naturally oily or a moisturising one for those faces in need of a large drink.
If your skin’s very dry, you must not use a toner that contains alcohol as it’s much too strong for you.
Think of a serum like a more concentrated moisturiser that’s lightweight. By leaving out lubricants and thickening agents typically found in face creams, the active ingredients are able to penetrate the skin much faster.
Winter skincare’s saving grace, moisturising is essential but it’s crucial that you get the right one for your skin type.
We cannot stress the importance of wearing SPF every day even if it’s cloudy and raining. UV light is always present and will cause irreversible damage if it’s not protected against.
SPF should always be the last step in your skincare routine and the first in your makeup. You must buy a product that contains both UVA (long-wave rays) and UVB (short-ray waves) and go no lower than SPF30 in order to fully protect against burn, pigmentation, dark spots and fight against premature ageing.
Eucerin’s Sun Creme For Face provides great protection for all skin types.
