Use a rich moisturizer in the evening after washing your face, and a lighter moisturizer with SPF of at least 30 in the morning before applying makeup.You can also amp up the hydration with natural oils on top of your evening moisturizer like argan oil. ArganLife Pure Argan Oil can moisturize dry skin with its Vitamin E content very effectively.
First, a disclaimer: we do not say that if you have dry skin, there is no powder or matte makeup out there that will work for you. It’s certainly possible, but in general, but you should try to stick to the cream or liquid make-up that promises a dewy finish. Most matte and powder makeup only emphasize dry skin and can easily caked-on.
Dry skin often leads to cloudiness, and the first impulse is often to scrub away the flakes. If you have dry skin, this is the worst thing you can do, especially if you are using an exfoliant every day. Over-exfoliating will only irritate (and drying) your skin. Limit your peeling one to three times a week.
Long, hot showers can save your sanity in the winter, but they are certainly not helping your dry skin. If you’re taking a hot shower every day then it’s time to make a change.
Face masks can be funny and sometimes you just want to put a scream-inducing mask selfie. But if you have dry skin, you should be very picky about what masks to be on your face. Many masks that promise to cleanse, shrink pores and remove blackheads are very dry. Instead, look for masks that provide hydration, soothing or added moisture.
It is imperative to avoid people with dry skin that strip their skin with overly aggressive cleaning. Yes, absolutely you need to remove a good job of your makeup to do at night, but that does not mean that your skin needs and then tight and itchy feeling.
