Use a moisturising face wash
If you have dry skin, it is really important to use the right kind of face wash because using the wrong one could further dry out your skin. It is best to use a face wash that has hydrating or moisturising properties. The Simple Kind To Skin Moisturising Facial Wash is gentle and soap free, which means it will not leave your skin feeling tight and dry after. Additionally, the moisturising properties in this face wash will make your skin super soft and supple.
Use a hydrating toner
If you don’t already use a toner, then it is best that you start now. Washing your face causes a pH imbalance, which makes your face feel dry and stretchy. But this is where a toner steps in, balances the pH levels and also creates an environment for your skincare products to absorb better into your skin.
Use a moisturiser with glycerine
People with dry skin need to go a step further when it comes to hydrating their skin. Ensure that you apply your moisturiser while your skin is still damp to lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated for longer. Additionally, the ingredients in your moisturiser need to have super hydrating properties. The classic Pond’s Moisturising Cold Cream is enriched with glycerine, and this is what helps to thoroughly moisturise really dry skin. Using this moisturiser twice a day will make your skin feel soft and supple.
Massage with a face oil
Since you have really dry skin, your night time skincare routine needs to include a face oil. Use the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum and massage it into your face. Since argan oil is really lightweight and has amazing moisturising properties, it will sink deep into your skin and ensure that you wake up with hydrated and conditioned skin.
Slather on some night cream
To ensure that your serum or face oil doesn’t move while you sleep, you need to seal it in by slathering on some night cream. Additionally, your skin heals and repairs itself while you snooze, and it is important to supply it with the right kind of nutrients to expedite this process. The Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Oil-In Gel Cream is enriched with Moroccan argan oil to keep your skin thoroughly hydrated without that greasy feel.
Don’t forget your lips
No skincare routine is ever complete without showing your lips some well-deserved TLC. Don’t forget to moisturise your lips at least twice a day – once in the morning before wearing your lipstick, and once before you hit the bed. The Vaseline Lip Therapy Original needs to be your bedside as well as skincare staple. This amazing lip balm is enriched with vitamin E, petroleum jelly, almond oil, shea and cocoa butter to provide deep nourishment and heal chapped lips in just a few uses.
Make sheet masks a part of your routine
There is no girl who would refuse a sheet mask, and we know why. A sheet mask delivers necessary nutrients to the skin in a matter of 15-20 minutes and leaves your skin feeling great after. Sheet masks are super helpful for people with dry skin as well. The St. Ives Revitalizing Acai Blueberry & Chia Seed Oil Sheet Mask is enriched with some amazing hydrating ingredients that leave your skin feeling super moisturised and supple.
