Those with dry skin may not have to deal with excessive oil and constant breakouts, but they do have to face their own set of problems. Lack of moisture or using the wrong type of skincare product can leave your skin feeling dry and stretchy, especially after cleansing your face. Dry skin could also mean your diet lacks the consumption of healthy fats. Increase the intake of vitamin E, C and A for healthy skin.
However, with the right skincare tips, products and diet, you can avoid problems associated with dry skin type. Follow these day and night skincare tips to make your skin supple and healthy.
Daytime skincare routine
Step 01: The first step of your dry skin routine should be cleansing. Extreme water temperatures can harm your skin and make it drier, so stick to lukewarm water to wash your face.
Step 02: Pick a gentle face wash for cleansing. The Pears Pure & Gentle Face Wash is a soap-free formulation that gently cleanses your skin without drying it. Infused with the nourishing goodness of glycerine, it maintains a healthy pH balance.
Step 03: Next, apply aloe vera gel like the Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Aloe Aqua Gel onto your face.
Step 04: Now, take a moisturiser and apply it all over your face and neck. For dry skin, choose one with nourishing ingredients. The Lakmé Peach Milk Moisturizer quickly absorbs into the skin to lock moisture for 12 hours to give you soft, glowing skin.
Step 05: You can now apply makeup if you wish to, but make sure it is cream-based, or you may end up with patchy makeup.
Nighttime skincare routine
Step 01: Again, cleansing will be the first step of your nighttime skincare routine. Use cleansing milk like Lakmé Deep Cleanser Cleansing Milk to eliminate dirt and makeup on your face.
Step 02: Next, use the same face wash and water temperature as your daytime routine to cleanse your skin thoroughly.
Step 03: The next step is to exfoliate the skin to eliminate dead skin cells and dirt build-up. Do this not more than twice a week for healthy and radiant skin. For dry skin, we suggest the St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub & Mask. It’s a gentle scrub that can also be used as a mask to give your face a healthy glow.
Step 04: Lastly, apply a nourishing night cream or oil serum to lock moisture in your skin. The Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum nourishes your skin overnight and tackles several skin care problems associated with dry skin.
