Dry skin needs a lot of babying and loving care. Here are some key steps you need in your dry skincare routine:
Cleanse. Use a gentle cleanser. Mild cleansers are great for all skin types, we recommend our Oatmeal Cleansing Bar. Your cleanser should have clean ingredients and easily remove dirt and buildup from skin without over stripping skin.
Moisturize. With dry skin the stratum corneum, which is the dead skin cell layer that protects the surface of the skin, tends to get easily irritated. To counteract this irritation look for moisturizers that contain essential fatty acids and ceramides. Try our Heal Me Body Cream or Honey Bee Body Cream in the morning and reapply before bed, using a thicker cream like these will lock moisture in and prevent moisture loss.
Take your time adding new products to your skin care routine. With dry, sensitive be cautious and test them one at a time on a small area of skin to ensure you don't have a reaction before adding another new product to your skin regimen. Use these steps and your skin will begin to improve in a few months. This information serves as a guide, remember to always consult a dermatologist or physician for specific problems with your skin.
