5 Tips for Caring for Dry Skin
Do you struggle with dry skin? If your face tends to be flaky and dull, it’s time to give it a glow up!
Hydrating your skin not only helps it to look healthier, it also helps it to age well and look young and supple as the years go on. There are many ways to care for dry skin — and it’s important to use high-quality products that deliver natural, healing ingredients.
When your skin looks better, your makeup looks better. So here are five tips for caring for dry skin.
Yes, it’s obvious — but it’s also the most important. Using moisturizer each morning and night is the first step in caring for any skin type, but especially dry skin. This lightweight, vegan moisturizer is full of natural ingredients including sweet almond oil and jojoba oil. With dry skin, you may want to use a larger amount in the evening especially to let it absorb all night long.
Moisturizing face masks give you an extra strong boost of hydration. Sheet masks are an easy way to moisturize before bed. By using a sheet mask, you avoid having to wash your face again afterward (like you would with a clay mask). When you remove a sheet mask, simply massage the extra serum from the mask on your skin and let it serve as a deep moisturizer overnight.
Use a Primer
Choose a primer that works double time as a moisturizing base for your makeup. This moisturizing primer contains hyaluronic acid and prepares your skin for seamless coverage but also hydrates and moisturizes your skin while helping your makeup stay in place. Having dry skin means you’ll likely want to still use a regular moisturizer as your very first layer, but primer is a great second step.
The sun dries out your skin, so it’s essential to use a face sunscreen each day — and especially during the summertime or when you’ll be outdoors. Sunscreen is important for every skin type, but it’s essential for helping dry skin stay moisturized.
Try a Facial Serum
Facial serum is a more intense version of moisturizer, often used only at night as part of your evening skincare routine. This serum, contains Carrot Seed Essential Oil which has great anti-aging properties. It also moisturizes, nourishes and hydrates your skin. While you can use it in the morning before your makeup as well, it can leave your skin looking a little oily, so be conservative in your application.
