When it comes to building a proper skin care routine, narrow down your skin type – is that normal? Lubricants? Dried? – just the beginning. Not everyone has access to a dermatologist or esthetician, and we love getting product recommendations and skincare advice from experts with the right credentials, It’s also important to note that there is no one-size-fits-all skin care method. Having healthy skin means finding products that are made specifically for your skin type.
For example, if you have dry skin, that means it tends to lose moisture easily – creating rough, flaky patches year round – and you want to look for formulas that help maintain the protective barrier Protects healthy skin through long-lasting moisturizing. That means you should choose products that are gentle and hydrating but won’t clog pores from all the extra emollients.
Of course, there are products for all skin concerns, so if you’re someone with dry skin trying to get through all the fuss, we’re here to help. Read ahead for our simple guide to creating a skin care routine for dry skin.
