One of the biggest gifts you can give yourself and your skin is some TLC. Sparing a few minutes everyday to make sure your skin stays healthy is just what it actually needs to glow. And while we understand that each skin type comes with its own skin troubles, there is nothing in this world that a religiously followed skincare routine can’t solve. So, for all you lovelies with dry skin, we have mapped out a thorough everyday skincare routine to follow to take care of your skin.
- Step 1: Cleanse your skin
- Step 2: Spritz on some toner
- Step 3: Opt for a hyaluronic acid serum
- Step 4: Never without a moisturiser
- Step 5: Boost your skin hydration overnight
- Step 6: Go the extra mile
Step 1: Cleanse your skin
Cleansing the face is the first step towards healthy skin. For dry skin, we suggest going with a nourishing face wash like the Lakmé Blush & Glow Strawberry Creme Face Wash. With real strawberry extracts in its formula, this face wash gently cleanses your skin without drying it, and strawberry antioxidants help nourish it further. Use this face wash twice a day--in the morning and before hitting the bed at night--to make sure your skin stays hydrated.
Step 2: Spritz on some toner
When you have dry skin, it is always a good idea to turn to an alcohol-free toner. This helps make sure that the skin is well cleansed, skincare products are nicely absorbed, and most importantly, the skin pH levels are balanced. Our go-to toner for dry skin is the Lakmé Absolute Pore Fix Toner. It is alcohol free and has the hydrating ingredient witch hazel that helps bind moisture in the skin. It also removes impurities, tightens pores, and makes sure your skin looks refreshed and healthy.
Step 3: Opt for a hyaluronic acid serum
Dry skin needs all the nourishment and hydration in the world, and that’s why we suggest going for a serum with hyaluronic acid like the Lakmé Absolute Hydra Pro Serum. It is infused with hyaluronic acid, pentavitin, and glycerin that gets easily absorbed in the skin and helps smoothen its texture, boost hydration, and make it appear all fresh and glowy. Just apply a few dots of this serum on your face and neck after cleansing and toning it, and gently massage it in a circular motion.
Step 4: Never without a moisturiser
To give your dry skin its daily dose of hydration, make sure you never skip moisturising it in the morning. Dab on a nice, hydrating moisturiser like the Lakmé Absolute Hydra Pro Gel Creme all over your face in the morning and massage it gently. The hyaluronic acid and pentavitin in its formula helps it instantly boost dry skin hydration by 70 per cent and lock in hydration for 72 hours! It makes the skin soft and supple. We’re totally marking this one for daily use.
Step 5: Boost your skin hydration overnight
Waking up with puffy eyes and dry, dull skin is a buzz kill. That’s why you need to make night creams a part of your skincare routine. While peaceful, good sleep helps the skin, a nice overnight cream like the Lakmé Absolute Hydra Pro Overnight Gel makes sure you wake up to the skin of your dreams. The hyaluronic acid in this cream binds water to skin cells to make the skin smooth and fresh, while pentavitin provides long lasting hydration throughout the night to ensure you wake up with plump, well-hydrated skin.
Step 6: Go the extra mile
Want naturally hydrated and glowing skin without slathering on layers of foundation and moisturiser? We have got the answer to all your prayers - the Lakmé Absolute Hydra Pro Tinted Moisturiser gives the skin sheer coverage and also helps keep it hydrated, soft, and supple. All thanks to the hyaluronic acid, shea butter, and pentavitin in its formula, this moisturiser gives dry, dull skin long lasting hydration, conditioning and even tone. What we love is the fresh and natural look this tinted moisturiser instantly gives to your face. What are you waiting for? Get your hands on this one right away!
