If rough, flaky and irritated skin seem familiar to you, the chances are you probably have dry skin. The best way to treat dry skin is by adopting a gentle and balanced skincare routine with products that are suitable for your skin type. Implement these measures to conquer your dry skin indefinitely.
What causes Dry Skin
Before we provide the solutions to dry skin, its equally important to understand the cause. There are plenty possible causes of dry skin such as cold weather, dry air, exposure to products with harsh chemicals, unbalanced skin PH, , skin conditions, high exposure to sunlight, unbalanced diet or smoking.
Tips for Dry Skin
Choose a hydrating Cleanser
When choosing a cleanser, choose one that is made with moisturising and hydrating ingredients. Hyaluronic acid is a good ingredient to look for in your cleanser.
Balance your Skin PH
Unbalanced Skin PH Balance can cause dehydration and skin dryness. We suggest using a toner after cleansing to balance your skin PH level. When skin is at its optimal PH Level of 5.5, it has a better moisture retention thus it helps keep the skin moisturised. Make sure your toner does’t have alcohol or fragrance as those ingredients will likely strop your skin of moisture. Moroccan Rose water is a slightly acidic and is a good match for skin’s natural PH, it can help your skin maintain a healthy PH level. Spray rose water immediately after your cleanse every Morning and every Evening.
Avoid Harsh Scrubs
When your skin is flaky, you might think that the best way to get rid of it is by exfoliating it but actually it's a big NO. The best gift you can give to flaky skin is hydration. If you want to exfoliate you can use a very gentle exfoliator such as Soul Sisters Prickly Pear Face Scrub, which is not harsh. The Prickly Pear Face Scrub is perfect for dry skin as its main ingredient the prickly pear seed oil is very hydrating and moisturising.
Use a Heavy Face Cream
Cover your face with a very hydrating cream morning and night. Choose creams that are heavy and filled with Moisturising ingredients.
Add a face oil to your routine
Many people have dry skin because their skin does not naturally produce enough oil. Natural oil production is very important for your skins health and appearance. Using oil on your face helps with the production of the natural oils in your skin. Face oil adds moisturising benefits to your skin. Soul Sisters Pure Argan oil is perfect for dry skin and the good thing about it is that it doesn’t clog the pores because of it is non comedogenic. Soul Sisters Morocco’s Prickly Pear Seed oil is also another alternative which non comedogenic for dry skin.
Invest in a home humidifier
Winter brings the cold weather and low humidity which leads to flaky and dry skin. Using a humidifier adds moisture to the indoor air and allows your skin to moisturise naturally.
