morning-skin-care-routine

Looking to treat the dry skin on your face? You’ve come to the right place! We explain what dry skin is, what causes dry skin and how to flaunt healthy and hydrated complexion thanks to our simple dry skin skincare routine. 

What Is Dry Skin?

Dry skin naturally produces less sebum (the oil that forms a barrier against external toxins and keeps skin moisturised, protected and plump) than other skin typesIt often feels tight, rough and flaky 

What Causes Dry Skin?

Dry skin can be triggered by environmental factors (think cold temperatures, chilled air and low humidity) that cause the blood vessels to narrow and reduce sebum production. The result? Dry, tight-feeling skin.

 

Some people are genetically predisposed to having dry skin. Eczema or acne, for example, make it harder for your pores to lock in moisture. Dry skin is also common in mature women, as sebum production naturally decreases with age.

 

Don’t worry, though! The below dry skin skincare routine will help to keep your complexion hydrated and healthy.

Dry Skin Skincare Routine

  1. Step 1: Exfoliate once a week

    Step 1: Exfoliate once a week

    The first thing you want to do is exfoliate. When dead cells accumulate on the face, they can prevent even the best moisturiser for dry skin from delivering key nutrients.  

     

    So, once a week, exfoliate with our Complexion Perfecting Radiance Exfoliator to buff away these dead cells and reveal soft, smooth skin. Combining Apricot Granules and Grape Seeds with Pineapple, Pumpkin and Papaya extracts, it gently exfoliates the skin, while brightening and smoothing for a healthy-looking glow.

    Step 2: Cleanse with a gentle face wash for dry skin 

    Did you know that harsh soaps and cleansers can strip the skin of its natural oils, leaving your dry face feeling drier and tighter? Instead, you need a gentle face wash for dry skin infused with nourishing and hydrating ingredients that cleanse without stripping. Our favourites? Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E! 

     

    Our Melt Away Cleansing Oil is packed full of nutrients and essential oils to gently wash away makeup and dirt, while nourishing and hydrating the skin

    Step 3: Tone  

    One of our top skincare tips? Never skip on toning – particularly if you have dry skin. Not only does toner help to rebalance skin after cleansing, but it prepares the skin for the next steps of your routine and allows other products to better work their magic. 

     

    Formulated with skin conditioning Witch Hazel, soothing Liquorice and brightening Vitamin B3, our Daily Glow Radiance Tonic is the perfect toner for dry skin. Apply onto a cotton pad, then sweep over the face and neck to achieve a more radiant-looking complexion that feels soothed and balanced.

    Step 4: Apply a hydrating facial oil 

    Perfect for nourishing dry skin, facial oils work to hydrate and protect the skin barrier. To find the best face oil for dry skin, look for formulas with hydrating and radiance-boosting ingredients, like vitamins and essential oils.  

     

    Our 10-in-1 Super Secret Facial Oil is fortified with Pomelo, Vitamins and a special skin blurring complex to provide 24 hours of hydration, while protecting and strengthening the skin barrier against the effects of pollution.

    Step 5: Moisturise  

    You don’t need us to tell you that applying moisturiser and night cream is the easiest way to help replenish dry skin. While moisturisers hydrate the skin’s surface and protect from free radical damage throughout the day, night creams help support the skin’s natural overnight renewal process.   

     

    A powerful moisturiser for dry skin, our Supercharged Hyaluronic Face and Neck Crème can be applied morning or night. It combines Hyaluronic Acid with Matrixyl Synthe’ 6™ and Shea Butter to keep skin looking nourished and hydrated.

    Step 6: Apply SPF every day 

    UV rays from the sun can cause skin to lose moisture, making it look and feel dry and flaky. Our recommendation? Apply SPF every day (even in Winter!) to protect skin from sun damage.  

     

    Our Protect and Illuminate SPF15 Moisture Lotion combines SPF15 with Pink Pomelo, Shea Butter, and Vitamins A and E to protect from UV damage, while hydrating and refining the skin.
