Dry skin is tricky to treat.
Simply because there are so many conditions going on,
Including an upset acid mantle and a barrier function that is out of whack.
But wait, don’t panic. We have sought the answers from the gods of moisturisation.
And assembled this handy guide that reads like the rescue rangers of the winter skin game.
To help you get your daily skincare routine in place.
Your Daily Skin Care Routine
Dry Skin Toners
To anybody who values a streamlined and edited dry skin care routine, toning your skin can often seem like the unnecessary precursor to cleansing.
But there are myriad of benefits, especially if you have a dry, parched skin type:
- pH rebalancing
- bacteria combating
- hydrating, locking in moisture
- pore refining
- penetration enhancer
- calming and soothing
Think of it as a much-needed specialised addition to your daily skincare routine to help maintain your skin’s health.
Remember, you don’t want anything too harsh or stripping because you dont want to remove your skin’s protective lipids that keep your barrier intact.
This would be counterproductive on dry skin; it is all about replenishing and repairing, not taking away.
Here at the Naked Chemist, our dry skin toners are formulated with specific ceramides, lipids, and humectants, like a supercharged liquid moisturiser that locks essential skin-identical ingredients in.
Moisturising Your Dry Skin
If you have dry skin, moisturisation is the next step in your routine.
It would be best if you added an occlusive moisturiser to your daily skincare routine, one that keeps your skin’s natural moisture balance in check,
A well-thought-out formula such as fortify barrier repair cream is essential; it contains the exact ratio of lipids, ceramides and cholesterol, giving your skin a chance to repair the daily wear and tear that is caused by environmental assaults.
Selecting a Serum
Consider adding an oil-based serum to your routine for an additional beauty boost, especially one rich in lipids, because dry skin is a type that is missing these valuable oils.
Bio lipid complex is our potent antioxidant oil that will help you replenish your skin’s lipids and restore a compromised barrier.
Don’t Overlook Healing Balms
So you’ve annihilated three stress balls in one read; well done.
But for those who have yet to achieve that work-life balance and prefer a one-stop moisturiser, consider reaching for a pot of ceramide barrier repair balm.
This gorgeous balm is chock full of healing lipids and ceramides and has been created to bridge the gap between a moisturiser and a product that will offer even deeper moisturisation.
It’s intense but light enough to be used daily or for an added moisture boost, used at night to wake up to moisturised and hydrated skin.
