UPDATED SKIN CARE ROUTINE FOR DRY SKIN

First step

CLEANSE:

Origins clean energy oil cleanser £25

Ingredients- Olive, Sunflower, Sesame and Safflower Oils removes dirt, makeup and pollutants. Kukui Nut and Macadamia help protect moisture. Vitamin E helps reduce the effects of environmental irritants. Grapefruit, Orange and Lemon gives a lovely uplifting scent!

This cleanser is amazing and literally melts of your makeup! I love anything oil based so this is perfect, and so nourishing for dry skins.

Second step

SERUM:

Darphin Lumière Essentielle Serum £56:

Marine Extracts to rejuvenate dull complexions

Enriched with micro-encapsulated Cedarwood and Ginger Essential Oils, the serum absorbs quickly to deliver hydration.

(Serums normally always cost more than moisturisers because they penetrate deeper down to the dermis of the skin so are more affective, where as a cream only moisturises the top layers of the skin) I can really feel this has made a difference to my skin.

OR I USE

OIL:

Wild source miracle oil £30:

Ingredients: Organic Thistle, Rosehip and Vitamin E to to deeply nourish and replenish skin. Thistle oil is particularly high in omegas 3 & 6. This work on balancing your skins natural oil levels. Rose hip is Harvested from the seeds of rose bushes which includes antioxidants, natural Retinol and vitamins A & C Rosehip improves the skin’s natural tone, texture and pigmentation.

My skin loves this! I always feel so moisturised and nourished after using an oil. I definitely recommend an oil if you have dry skin. A great trick is using this underneath makeup for a dewy finish.

LAST STEP:

moisturise with Eve Lom TLC cream £55:

This cream is made with glycerine, which is used to hydrate and condition the skin. It also contains beeswax, which helps form a protective barrier to the skin and give it a more of an even texture. Euphrasia extract and arnica help to reduce puffiness, soothe and tone, while calendula works to calm sensitivity and tone down redness.

Key Benefits:

• Intensely hydrates

• Conditioning effect

• Reduces puffiness and redness

• Lowers skin’s sensitivity

• Suitable for extremely dry skin

• Can be used on all skin types

I alternate between different moisturisers but I love this one, it’s very thick so works best applied over oil. Definitely a cream that would only work for people with severe dryness.

A photo of my skin after my routine:

For me investing in skin care is so important. I used to have rosacea which if you don’t know, it’s basically extremely dry red cheeks. However, since learning and investing time and money into my skin care I know longer have that issue! Which has also meant that I no longer where foundation, just tinted moisturiser 😊

Thanks for reading!!!
