The Best Products for Dry Skin

Regardless of whether you struggle with dry skin all year round, or it’s a temporary problem you face throughout Winter, don’t worry – dry skin is not a verdict, and just like any other skin condition, it is fully manageable. Today, we’re sharing our top 3 must-have products for anyone with dry skin, that are sure to restore the healthy glow of your skin!

1. Cream Cleanser

If we have to name one thing that is an absolute no-no for dry skin that would be harsh facial cleansers. Sadly, the majority of cleansers available on the market are formulated with strong detergents like SLES and SLS. These literally break down the natural lipids that protect your skin, leaving it exposed to external aggressors, and unable to retain moisture.

Instead, opt for a cream cleanser. A cream cleanser will gently dissolve impurities and makeup, whilst nourishing the skin, and allowing it to replenish itself naturally. Cream cleansers contain natural oils and skin-soothing ingredients like Rose waterChamomile 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!

What to Try: La Mav Hydra Calm Cleansing Creme

Winner of the Nature & Health 2012 Beauty Award! This cleanser is a gentle, ultra-light cream formulated with Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Camellia Oil and Chamomile to soothe and remove impurities.


2. Oil Based Serum/Facial Oil

We are not going to talk about the importance of moisturising your face daily, because we are sure you have already heard this “mantra” for beautiful skin, more than once.

What we want to mention though, is how important it is to 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 any facial oil is before you go to bed, because while you sleep the cells renew at a much higher rate and your skin has eight hours to absorb every single beneficial natural compound from the oils you are using.

Oils not only prevent dry patches and flaking, but also ensure the moisture levels in your skin stay high, so you can enjoy a radiant complexion and plump, supple skin, every day.

What to Try: La Mav Intense Moisture Nightly Repair Nectar

This nutrient rich ultra-moisturising nectar works overnight to provide dry skin and dehydrated skin with a powerful shield to lock in moisture and restore glowing radiance.


3. Facial Mist

The most common issues people with dry skin have to deal with include:

  • Tightness
  • Itchiness
  • Irritations
  • Redness
  • Flacking
  • Dry patches
  • Lackluster complexion
  • Chronic dehydration

What a list, uh? The best on-the-go solution for all of these is an organic facial mist, formulated with all-natural ingredients, with skin-healing properties.

Facial mists can be used as a toner (morning and evening), or sprayed during the day, to boost glow and make your skin look dewy and fresh. They are handy, easy to use and super effective. What’s more – they deliver results instantly. An absolute must-have for anyone who has dry or dehydrated skin!
