Dry Skin Type: Daily Skin Care Regimen
Dry skin is prone to premature wrinkles and needs extra care due to its lack of moisture and oil balance. While dry skin can be uncomfortable and not physically attractive, following a daily skin care regimen will help keep the skin looking its best.
Here’s a simple 3 step dry skin care routine:
Cleanse, Exfoliate, and Moisturize
1- Use an oil-based gel cleanser that will add moisture and oil to the skin and not strip it of any natural oils that may be present.
2- Use a light exfoliant once per week to remove dead skin cells and reveal a fresh layer of skin.
3- Use an oil & water based moisturizer that contains an SPF of 30 to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays while adding necessary moisture and oil to the skin. Water should be the first ingredient followed by a light natural oil. Avoid mineral oil and petroleum which clogs the skin. Moisturizers with Shea Butter and Olive Oil are quite effective.
Note: All of your products should be alcohol-free. Alcohol is very drying to the skin and must be avoided at all costs. As a matter of fact, avoid skin care products that contain any harsh ingredients like sodium laurel sulfate or ingredients with the word “paraben” in them.
Dry skin can be uncomfortable and your choice of moisturizer is critical.
Always remove any makeup before going to be each night. This can be accomplished by using the cleanser for your skin type followed by your moisturizer.
Follow this dry skin care regimen and tips to maintain healthy skin all year round.
