If continually layering on lotion to see how quickly your skin can dry out has become a hobby, then your skincare products should feature ingredients that moisturize and hydrate. Using products with harsh detergents and synthetic chemicals will strip your skin of healthy oils and increase the issues of your already dry skin. You will see the best results by choosing products that are high in natural fatty acids and ingredients that provide lasting hydration.
Exfoliating may not seem like something that is good for dry skin, but it is actually one of the best ways to help skin stay soft and supple. Regular exfoliation is important to remove dead skin cell, toxins, and deeply cleanse skin. Our Clay Masks are a great way to exfoliate, without drying skin out.
Toner is often a skipped step in a daily routine, but it is one of the best steps for re-energizing and instantly hydrating skin. Immediately after cleansing and exfoliating your face, mist your face with Rose Water Toner. This will help the appearance of pores and prep your skin for maximum absorption.
Cracked skin and conditions like Psoriasis and Eczema are common among those with very dry skin. Our favorite products to not only hydrate, but also heal skin and provide nourishments, are our Foot Cream (great for more than just feet!) and our Argan Face Oil.
The last step in your routine is protecting your skin. Keeping your skin protected and moisturized will help strengthen its barrier and prevent damage. In summer, don't forget sunscreen and year-round carry Lip Balm to apply as needed and even Rose Water Toner to mist on as an instant refresher throughout the day.
Your skin is the first line of defense when it comes to protecting you from outside “germs” (bacteria, viruses, and fungi). Building and maintaining strong skin is a way to support your immune system. You can strengthen your skin by keeping it clean, moisturized, and by keeping the good bacteria (microbiota) on your skin alive. You should avoid ingredients that weaken your skin like products with alcohol, strong foaming agents (SLS), antibacterial agents like Benzalkonium Chloride, fragrance, and inflammatory ingredients like soy. For your skin type, coconut oil, beeswax, and shea butter are all great natural ingredients to help keep dry skin nourished and healthy.
