Shop Skincare for Dry Skin
Does your skin feel tight and uncomfortable after you leave the shower, or is your skin dull or prone to congestion? You may have a dry skin type. People with this skin type may easily develop flakiness and rough skin. Dry skin can lead to compromised skin as well, affecting your skin barrier and leaving you prone to imperfections. Well hydrated skin is the key to beautiful skin - let us show you our favourite picks.
There are also environmental factors that lead to having dry skin, such as sun or wind damage, cold temperatures, low humidity. Maybe you're ageing, or maybe you've started a new medication. You may be over-washing your skin with harsh cleansers or antibacterial products. Keep your skin hydrated and your natural skin barrier intact with gentle, effective and hydrating products.
A gentle cleanser that doesn't strip the skin is crucial to maintaining your skin's natural moisture levels. Try a micellar cleanser to remove your makeup, followed by a creamy or milky cleanser to ensure that you're not stripping your skin.
Despite the temptation that flaking or rough patches provides, it's important that you don't use a harsh physical exfoliator - dry skin is synonymous with compromised skin. By scrubbing too hard, you may be risking your skin's defences against bad bacteria. Try a chemical exfoliator instead! A product with AHAs (such as lactic acid) or BHAs (such as salicylic acid) will leave your skin glowing, looking less dull.
