Skin Care Tips for Dry Skin
Dry skin can occur for a number of reasons, but there are steps you can take with your skin care routine that will help to alleviate dryness and even help prevent it altogether.
In today’s post, we’re sharing some of our favourite dry skin remedies and natural skin care products designed to tackle dry skin and achieve a natural, radiant complexion.
Rethink bath time rituals
We all love a good soak in the bath but, the longer you linger under the water, the worse your skin will feel. Water that is too hot strips your skin of its natural oils, taking away that much needed moisture barrier. Try to be mindful of your bathing rituals by limiting your time in the water and making sure that the bath water is just right before taking the plunge.
As soon as you’re out of the shower or bath, be sure to apply a moisturiser like the Enriching Body Oil to slightly damp skin. The nourishing oils of Apricot, Evening Primrose and Vitamin E work to retain your skin’s moisture, helping you to achieve supple, hydrated skin.
Scrub up well
Exfoliation should be an important part of your beauty regime as it helps to banish dry, flaky skin and boost blood circulation. Gentle and regular exfoliation with products like our Apricot Face Polish is just the remedy you need to help remove dead skin cells - leaving you with a natural, healthy glow.
To get the most out exfoliating, Body Brushing can be a game-changer. Running the firm, natural cactus bristles over the skin once a week helps to brush away dead skin cells, naturally exfoliating the skin – an excellent way to keep you looking bright and fresh.
When your skin feels tight and dry, it’s a natural tendency to lather it in heavy moisturising products - but this doesn’t always have the desired effect, particularly on delicate areas like the face. Quite often, over-moisturising leads to greasy skin and breakouts, as the skin isn’t able to breathe.
Try moisturising with a face cream that’s packed with natural and beneficial ingredients that will hydrate and nourish dry skin, without suffocating the pores on your face. Moisturisers specially formulated for dry skin, like our Replenishing Face Cream, are easily absorbed and contain ingredients like Marshmallow root to seal and plump lacklustre skin.
Sometimes when dry skin is at its worst, you will feel like there’s nothing that will stop it. For those times, you can provide welcome nourishment with intense treatments like our Skin Rescue Balm. A multi-award-winning best-seller, this 100% organic balm contains Comfrey leaf, Marshmallow root, Chickweed and Helichrysum oil to repair stubborn patches of dry, flaky skin.
When it comes to treating and preventing dry skin, it’s all about finding the products and skin care techniques that work for you. With a little experimentation and the right natural ingredients, you’re sure to find the perfect blend to keep your complexion radiant.
