Do you find your skin constantly feels dry and parched? If your skin is in need of some hydration and radiance, then we recommend using heavier rich and deeply hydrating moisturisers and other skincare products that are specifically tailored for dry skin. A good skincare routine is particularly essential for thirsty skin. By following our advice and tips here, you’ll keep your skin quenched; we’ve even thrown in recommendations for some of our favourite products for dry skin to add to your daily skincare routine.
Cleansing should always be the first step of your routine, whether you are prepping your skin for the day, for a mask or for bedtime. Cleansing dry skin will ensure it is free from makeup, as well as dead skin and other debris, which can accumulate overnight as well as during the day. Deep and effective cleasning will also clear a path for moisture to be absorbed into your skin more easily.
We also recommende double cleansing particularly in the evening, as it can take more than one step to remove the layers of makeup, sunscreen , daily grime our skin pick up during the day. A second cleanse will help to ensure that all impurities are removed from skin before the next steps of your routine.
IN THE BEGINNING is a deep pore exfoliating cleanser that is designed to kick off your regime and leave your skin feeling dewy and glowing with health and vitality. It’s a concentrated balm that gives that ‘just had a facial’ feeling. It’s buttery-crystalline texture melts as you massage it in, delivering an anti-ageing blend of Mediterranean ingredients for a nutritious, intense cleanse.
If you are a fan of double cleansing, IN THE BEGINNING is the perfect cleanser to use for both steps, as it works to break down dirt and impurities and polishes skin to leave it hydrated, smooth, supple and looking radiant.
Using toner is a really important step in any skincare routine. A lot of people miss this step out, but toners really help to enhance the benefits of other products like moisturisers. A toner will remove any excess cleanser too and prep the skin further.
For dry skin, we recommend using a gentle toner that doenst contain alcohol which can dry the skin out further. TONING ESSENCE is an alcohol-free toner spray that cools, refines and tones the skin, while restoring its natural pH balance. It will leave your skin feeling totally refreshed and ready for the next step of your skincare routine.
Masks shouldn’t be optional extras - they should be an important part of your regime, acting as targeted treatment for specific skin concerns. Skin should always be cleansed prior to applying a mask to ensure that the mask can penetrate the skin and do its job.
QUENCH is an ideal mask for dry skin. It rejuvenates and leaves skin plump, soft and glowing with youthful radiance. If your skin is feeling particularly dry, apply QUENCH in place of your night time moisturiser and leave on overnight to saturate your skin with moisturising goodness. Come the morning, you will wake up with super smooth, soft and fresh skin.
Unsurprisingly, for those with dry skin, the right moisturiser is the most vital step of their skincare routine. When choosing a moisturiser for dry skin, look for moisturising and plumping ingredients (like glycerin, hyaluronic acid, shea butter, grapeseed oil, olive oil or sunflower oil) and antioxidants ( such as green tea extract, grape extract, Vitamin C or Vitamin E). For your morning routine, we strongly recommend a moisturiser with SPF to keep your skin protected all day long.
Apply your moisturiser by taking a small amount on the tips of your fingers and massaging in upward and outward motions all over your face.
DOUBLE CREAM is our best moisturiser for dry skin. Rich, creamy and deeply hydrating, it’s the perfect way to end your routine. It sinks quickly into your skin, leaving it rehydrated, glowing and full of vitality. The formula is rich in anti-ageing vitamins and fatty acids to plump, firm and revitalise dull or tired skin as well as protect it from damaging environmental factors.
DOUBLE CREAM can be used as your daily morning and evening moisturiser. For days when you are treating your skin to a face mask, follow your mask with Double Cream to seal in the benefits of the active ingredients from your mask.
If lip balm is something that you always seem to forget, no matter how many you carry around in your handbag, then why not incorporate it as part of your daily morning and evening routine? After applying your moisturiser, massage some lip balm into lips to ensure that they stay soft and moisturised.
You can kiss those dry lips goodbye with ALL TALK lip balm which is packed full of natural plant extracts, vitamins and botanicals to leave your lips sensationally soft and nourished.
