With autumn on the horizon, the cooler months can bring disruption to dry skin. Dry patches, dehydration and irritation are just a few aspects that may affect your complexion during this time. To get your skin in the best condition possible, use a skincare routine. So, what products should you be using to prepare dry skin and are there any treatments you can try to improve your complexion?
No skincare routine would be complete without the use of a moisturiser. Dry skin types require a thick, nourishing cream to hydrate, smooth and soften. To enhance the effectiveness of your moisturiser, start your skincare routine with a cleanser to remove makeup and impurities, following with a soothing toner to refresh and eliminate any traces of cleanser. Next, use a hydrating serum to penetrate deep into the skin and then use your moisturiser.
A moisturising sheet mask or facial mask is ideal as a treat for your skin. An extra hydrating mask will put moisture back into your skin and help your skin to retain it.
It may sound like a harsh treatment but hyaluronic acid is perfect for retaining moisture. This natural substance can hold vast amounts of water, helping to plump, firm and smooth your complexion. By using a serum or moisturiser containing hyaluronic acid, your skin will appear softer, radiant and healthy.
A SkinBase microdermabrasion treatment is ideal for restoring dry skin. Using non-allergenic crystals to gently remove dead skin cells, this treatment boosts the production of collagen, improves the tone of the skin and reveals fresh skin for ultimate luminosity. Even sensitive skin types can enjoy a microdermabrasion treatment thanks to its gentle nature. Make sure to follow the aftercare closely, regular applications of moisturiser are essential, especially for dry skin types.
