FOR DRY SKIN

Hair - - Skin Care -

Rich, emol­lient for­mu­la­tions are best for de­hy­drated and dry skin. You should use prod­ucts con­tain­ing humec­tants, like hyaluronic acid and glyc­er­ine, that at­tract mois­ture to the skin, and emol­lients such as shea but­ter and squa­lene to seal the mois­ture in the skin. Cleanser: Opt for a cleanser which is a non-soap cream or milky for­mula. Foam­ing cleansers tend to be more dry­ing, so avoid them. En­sure that the cleanser has plenty of emol­lients and fatty acids that for­tify the skin’s pro­tec­tive bar­rier. Day mois­turiser/Sun­screen: For the day, look for mois­turis­ers with shea but­ter, co­conut or jo­joba oils, and an­tiox­i­dants like vi­ta­min E which mois­turise well but are not too greasy un­der make-up. Use a cream-based broad­spec­trum sun­screen with an SPF of at least 30. Night Mois­turiser: Opt for rich creams con­tain­ing in­gre­di­ents like ceramides as night mois­turis­ers. Ceramides are lu­bri­cat­ing lipids that go deep into the skin and re­place nat­u­ral oils.
