Dry skin is one of the most delicate skin types there are. It is important to treat it nicely and with care, and you must take this into account when cleansing it, too.
When it comes to dry skin and cleansers, less is more. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t clean it, it is still necessary to keep your face clean. However, there are certain rules you should follow when cleansing so your skin feels loved.
At the moment of choosing a cleanser, go for soap-free. These cleansers are usually made with milder ingredients and don’t repel oils. if possible, choose a gentle cleanser with added moisturisers. If the product you use makes your skin feel too dry or irritated, try changing it. Avoid salicylic and glycolic acids, or products with alcohol, chemicals or fragrances. When using your cleanser, avoid scrubbers, apply the product with clean and damp hands, gently massaging your face. Use just a bit of cleanser, don’t go overboard with the amount of product you use. Then, pat your face dry with a soft cloth. Don’t go for a shiny and squeaky-clean look, instead, be soft and don’t dry the water completely. When you are done cleansing, moisturise. Choose a rich but gentle moisturiser and apply it evenly across your face. Avoid using makeup remover wipes, and if you have to use them, be picky with the one you choose. No alcohol or fragrances are allowed when having dry skin, it can irritate the face and worsen the situation. A good replacement for these is using some oil, like coconut oil, this will help remove even more makeup and will also hydrate your skin. As part of your skincare routine, avoid exfoliating. Going too harsh on dry skin never turns out fine, it is better to treat it as gentle as a baby. Instead, if you want to give your routine an exciting touch, use a face mask that moisturises. With these tips, your face should be proper and clean without harming its so needed moisture.
