Skin type : Dry
When your skin is dry it can feel tight, or itchy or look bumpy or with a weird texture, (or all of the above!), and sometimes it can feel like no matter what you do, your skin just doesn't seem to stay moisturized, and you just want to scream : what do you want from me??
I've been there, (and fall back once in a while too),so I know it's not a nice place to be, when you feel so confused and frustrated,that you feel you just have to surrender to the dryness...
But I won't let you surrender,
Because your skin is not at war with you, when your skin is dry is just calling out for help,
Your skin is lost in a desert and making a dua for water to come down....to hydrate and heal it,
And i want to show you exactly how you can do this!
But let's talk first about what causes your skin to become dry:
So, let's get hydrating, like *for real*...
I am going to show you how you can get your skin out of this dry phase, get it hydrated, moisturized, vibrant and thriving.
Are you excited? ( I hope you are!!!)
So, Dry skin needs one thing and one thing only: Moisture! (obviously)
But we also need to find ways seal that moisture on the skin, we need to combine hydration and (very important and) ingredients that lock it in our skin!
I like to think a baklava, with those yummy layers of nuts and phyllo dough, if you mush it all together it will still be tasty, but it looses it's effect. Same with our dry skin, you need to work in layers, (fortunately with way less than a baklava though!)
And those layers need to have the most hydrating and gentle ingredients so we can keep our skin in a happy state.
Dry skin needs ultra soothing and healing ingredients so we can help it stay hydrated and so we can keep the skin barrier healthy, because then our skin is able to fight the dry air, the hot water (yeah I love it too but it's not good), and the lack of hydration.
Rose petals, Oats, Aloe vera, Chamomile, Calendula and Hibiscus flowers are exceptional at hydrating, healing and moisturizing
So how do we use these ingredients to keep our skin glowing, vibrant, healthy and moisturized with a simple and effective routine that can be customized to your needs?
Dry skin needs to be treated like baby skin, that's why the Rose and Chamomile cleansing scrub is ideal for it! The oats cleanse the skin without stripping it of it's natural oils and the chamomile and roses impart nutrients and vitamins your skin needs.
How to use
1. Make a paste with the scrubs and massage on face for 15-20 seconds, then wash to reveal smooth and refreshed skin!
This step is crucial if you have dry skin, the hydration before the facial oils could be the trick your skin needs to stay happy and plump. Rose water is a natural p.h. balance, and Hibiscus is a hydration magnet and will help draw moisture in your skin.
How to use:
2. Spray on after using the cleansing scrubs (I like to do one spray on the left, and one on the right 😊)
And now, all you have to do is apply the facial oils to seal in that moisture you have applied in the previous step! You will also get all the soothing, anti-inflammatory properties of almond oil, roses, calendula and chamomille!
How to use
3. Apply a few drops after spraying your face with the facial spritz, and massage onto skin until absorbed!
Ingredients to avoid to help dry skin:
🧴Sodium laureth sulfate (SLS))
*Essential Oils (without proper knowledge)
