You’re Dry As A Bone
Dry skin – the characteristics: Small pores Flaky patches Rough texture Feels tight after cleansing
Your skin prescription:
Swap granular scrubs for gentle, chemical exfoliants with lactic acid once a week – lactic acid binds moisture as it exfoliates. Use a nourishing treatment oil to replace the oil in your skin. Warm it in your fingers and softly press it into your face and neck.
Use an oil-based moisturiser with ingredients like avocado, rosehip, and macadamia oil to strengthen the skin. “Avoid ingredients that weaken your skin, such as alkaline soaps, alcohol-based toners and hydroxyy acids,” says Fiona na Tuck, managing director of Skinstitut.
