Your Skin Type is...Dry, Dehydrated Skin

Woman with Dry Skin

 

 

If you suffer from dry skin, you wash your face expecting it to feel fresh and clean, but instead it feels irritated and tight. During the dryer months like winter and fall, your skin is extra flaky and can peel easily, causing you to feel itchy.

Dry skin struggles to retain the natural moisture needed as a protective shield against external influences. Because of this, your skin may feel rough and look on the duller side. You may not necessarily be prone to acne, but the dehydrated feeling might seem just as difficult to manage.

Ready to get your skin glowing? Here are some tips to get you started!

1. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Dry skin needs all the moisturizer it can get. Use a deep, creamy moisturizer or a facial oil to keep your skin moisturized. Bonus Tip: Mix your facial oil with a bit of creamy moisturizer, before applying to your face, for the perfect blend of moisturization.

2. Ditch the harsh ingredients. Ingredients like artificial fragrance and parabens can be super rough on dry skin. Instead, use botanical based products that are mild and gentle on your skin. Our Clear Consciousness Calming Botanical Cleanser and Ethereal Indulgence Hydrating Dew is perfect for skin like yours!

3. Wear a moisturizing sunscreen! No matter what your skin type, sunscreen is a must. But if you suffer from extremely dry skin, most sunscreen formulas on the market can be pretty harsh on your skin. Not to mention the white residue that a lot of sunscreen leaves that makes our already flaky skin look worse. Dry skin loves sunscreen made with enriching oils! Our personal favorite is Black Girl Sunscreen as it is filled with lots of dry-skin friendly emollients, its all-natural and best of all it absorbs very well, leaving no white film on your skin.
