The Best Products for Dry Skin
Regardless of whether you've had dry skin your whole life, or it’s a phase your skin is going through, you know it's a huge pain to deal with. To help you rehydrate and replenish your skin, today, we’d like to share with you our 3 must-have products for dry/dehydrated skin that we consider to be absolute game-changers.
1. Cream Cleanser
If we have to name one thing that is a big no-no for dry skin that would be harsh facial cleansers. Sadly, the majority of the cleansers available on the market are formulated with strong detergents like SLES and SLS. SLES and SLS break down the natural lipids that protect your skin, leaving it exposed to external aggressors + unable to retain moisture, therefore dehydrated and dry.
Unlike foaming cleansers that contact SLES/SLS, cream cleansers gently dissolve impurities and makeup, whilst nourishing the skin, to help it replenish itself naturally. Cream cleansers contain natural oils and skin-soothing ingredients like Rosewater, Chamomile extract and Aloe Vera, which makes them ideal for preventing irritations, redness and flacking. What’s best about cream cleansers is that after you wash them off, your skin feels as if you have just put moisturizer on – that’s how skin-friendly and hydrating they are.

2. Oil-Based Serum/Facial Oil
Want dewy-looking, radiant complexion? Incorporate at least one oil-based product in your beauty routine to ensure your skin stays plump and hydrated. Oils are rich in essential fatty acids and important nutrients that help replenish skin’s lipid barrier and restore its integrity. They nourish, increase skin’s resistance to external damage, fight off free radicals and boost cell turnover. The best time to apply facial oils is before you go to bed because while you sleep the cells renew at a much higher rate + your skin has eight hours to absorb and benefit from every single skin-loving molecule that your face oil contains.

3. Facial Mist
The most common issues people with dry skin have to deal with include:
- Dry patches
- Lacklustre complexion
- Chronic dehydration
The best on-the-go solution for the majority of these unpleasant skin concerns is a good organic/natural face mist.
Facial mists can be used as a toner (morning and evening) or sprayed during the day, to help your skin look glowing and fresh. They are easy to use, very effective and are often a budget-friendly buy. What’s more – face mists deliver results instantly + can double as makeup setting spray. An absolute must-have for anyone who has dry or dehydrated skin!
