3 Step Evening Routine For Dry Skin
If I’m being honest, I am often tempted to skip my evening skincare routine, especially after a long day. It is so easy to bend to the exhaustion and simply jump into bed without removing my makeup. However, I have seen a significant improvement in my skin when I actually take the time to at least cleanse and moisturize my face at the end of the day.
As a person with dry skin, I have learned the value of making sure my skin is properly cleansed and hydrated and have devised a quick and simple evening skincare routine that I can stick to, that keeps my skin hydrated and happy!
STEP 1: CLEANSE
In order to effectively cleanse my skin I start with the Active Clay Cleanser. This formula is non-foaming, so it doesn’t strip the natural oils from my face while cleansing, and the coconut oil-based surfactants will not over-dry my skin and leave it feeling tight or irritated. I must point out that this cleanser is annoyingly addictive. If ever I run out of this stuff and use a random cleanser/soap, my skin is not happy and turns on me very quickly. Seriously, finding the right cleanser for your skin type is a game changer.
STEP 2: HYDRATE
Although I may submit to the laziness and not follow my cleanse with hydration, that is not what I reccomened. With my dry skin, water simply disappears into my face and she turns dry and rough very quickly if I don’t hydrate her. So once I have cleansed my skin, I apply about half a pipette of Total Hydration Serum. By far my favourite product in the collection, it contains 3 different types of hyaluronic acid, as well as some awesome ingredients such as caviar lime, kigelia extract and devil’s claw – ingredients I’ve never heard of before which help brighten, hydrate and clam the skin. This serum is also an incredible tactile experience, with its gel-like texture you can actually feel your skin changing to be plumper and softer. Enough said.
STEP 3: MOISTURIZE
If you have a dry skin type then you know, hydration is important and moisture makes all the difference. As a final step in my evening routine, I moisturize my skin with Miracle Moringa Oil. This super-concentrated, 100% cold-pressed and organic oil requires no more than a few drops to effectively moisturize my whole face. I love a product that proves a little really does go a long way. With just a few drops your skin will get the intense moisture it needs while being fast-absorbing and without leaving any greasy residue. Bye bye flaky, dry skin!
