Perhaps you have always had dry skin, or maybe it’s a skin care concern that comes and goes with the seasons. Either way, no matter how much moisturizer you slather on, you know that dry skin isn’t always the easiest skin woe to beat. Well for one, when it comes to moisturizing dehydrated skin it really can be more about your approach and less about the amount of lotion you use. Try to think about hydrating skin dryness with more ways than one and you can become one step closer to nourishing skin dryness and achieving the look of glowing hydrated skin.
Dry skin care tip #1: Skip foaming or gel-based cleansers. While foaming and gel-based face washes are popular cleansing options, those with dry skin should really opt for more nourishing formulas like cream cleansers instead. Foaming and gel-based cleansers may strip your dry skin of the little natural oil it is producing on its own, this can make skin dryness become even more apparent.
Dry skin care tip #2: Exfoliate more regularly. Skin dryness can develop when there is a pile up of dead skin cells on the outer layer of your skin. This buildup should be removed with regular exfoliation. Those with sensitive skin may want to check in with their dermatologist to see how frequently they should exfoliate, but others should consider weekly or even daily exfoliation. Some pre-soaked chemical exfoliating pads are gentle enough to use on a daily basis, you could also consider swapping in a refining clay mask two to three times a week to help slough away dead skin cells on skin’s surface and improve the look of skin dullness.
Dry skin care tip #3: Look for a hydrating face mask. Try to incorporate an extra ten to fifteen minutes into your skin care routine a few times a week, so you can surge your skin with moisture by applying a hydrating face mask after cleansing. Fit in this pampering step whenever you have the time so that your dehydrated skin can get a little extra attention.
Dry skin care tip #4: Try a moisturizer formulated to provide long-lasting hydration. Some moisturizing formulas simply don’t last long enough, so try looking for a moisturizer that offers 24-hour hydration.
Dry skin care tip #5: Remove makeup with micellar water. Some makeup remover options contain alcohol and can make dry skin even more so when used regularly. To effectively and gently remove makeup, consider cleansing your skin with micellar water at night. The gentle formula can clean and hydrate at the same time.
Dry skin care tip #6: Surge skin with moisture at night. Take advantage of the fact that your skin’s recuperating abilities are at their prime and treat your dehydrated skin to extra moisture while you rest. Consider applying an overnight mask after your regular moisturizing serum or apply facial oil to cleansed skin before your nighttime moisturizer.
Better address skin dryness by looking beyond your typical moisturizer. To truly hydrate dry skin, it can take an adjustment to your skin care routine as a whole.
