Dry skin is a common condition that can cause discomfort, itching, flaking, and cracking. To care for dry skin, you need to follow a gentle and hydrating skin care routine that replenishes the moisture and oil levels in your skin and protects it from further damage.
Skincare routine for dry skin:
- Cleanser: Start by using a gentle, hydrating cleanser to cleanse your face. We recommend using Petitgrain Cream Cleanser. This cleanser gently removes dirt, makeup, and impurities without stripping the skin’s natural oils. It contains petitgrain oil, which balances the skin’s sebum production and reduces inflammation.
- Toner: After cleansing, apply a hydrating toner to help rebalance the skin's pH levels and prepare it for the next steps of your routine. Look for toners that contain hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin.
- Serum: Next, apply a hydrating serum that is specifically formulated for dry skin. Look for serums that contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid or vitamin C. Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water and attracts moisture to the skin.
- Moisturiser / Face Oil: Follow up with a rich, nourishing moisturizer designed for dry skin. Look for moisturisers that contain ingredients like shea butter, ceramides, or natural oils, as these can provide intense hydration and help seal in moisture.
In addition to this routine, it's essential to drink plenty of water, maintain a healthy diet, and avoid hot showers or baths, as they can further dehydrate the skin.
