Do you have Dry SKin ?Then This Tips Are For You

It seem to me that must of the skincare advice is always tailored to people with oily skin and normal skin ,what about people with dry skin? I mean lets be real here .
I personally I have got dry skin around my jaws and my nose area ,if your face ever feels tight and flaky ,you know that there are a few very important skincare rules to keep in mind and some things that you should always skip. Here are 6 of the things you should never, ever do if you have dry skin.

Tip 1: Never forget to moisturize

If you have a normal skin or an oily skin you may probably skip a day of moisturizing ,but you cannot skip with a dry skin .
to Bergin this i have started using two. different moisturizers i use a rich moisturizer in the evening  after I wash my face concentrating more on the areas i have dry skin on ,then I apply a lighter moisturizer  with SPF (Sun Protector Factor) in the morning  before I apply my makeup if need be .
You can also amp up the hydration with natural oils on top of your evening moisturizer. Argan oil, avocado oil, and jojoba oil are all great for dry skin and can be found online or in health food stores (just be sure to avoid buying anything with added fragrance or any added ingredients).

 Tip 2:Do not over exfoliate

Dry skin often leads to flakiness and the first thing you will always want to do is to scrub the flakes away, when you have a dry skin this is the worst thing to do  ,when you over exfoliate the skin ,you irritate the skin and your skin will dry out the more .I always limit my exfoliating 2-3 times a week and I avoid products that have got beads and grains as this will only tear up your skin. I will always recommend the Black Soap which is popularly called Dudu Osun with a warm wet washcloth .

Tip 3:Avoid Taken Long Hot Showers

If you’re taking a hot shower every day then it’s time to make a change (but we’re not saying you have to switch to cold showers; we aren’t monsters).
I know long hot showers might save your sanity in the winter but this will definitely not help your dry skin ,Instead, reduce the length of your showers (ten minutes max) or slowly lowering the temperature until you’ve switched from hot to warm showers. Avoid washing your face in very hot shower water (save that for the sink afterwards). You can also apply coconut oil or Vaseline before a shower to help keep skin from drying out.

Tip 4:Always try to use products with high amount of alcohol

A small amount of alcohol in your products isn’t always a bad thing, contrary to popular opinion. Used properly, alcohol can help increase a product’s efficacy. However, if a product—like a toner—has high amounts of alcohol, it is very likely that it will dry out your skin. The takeaway here is to make sure to always research the ingredients before buying a new product, and do a patch test first whenever possible to be sure it doesn’t dry you out. Some f the toners i will recommend will be Murad  and Pixi

Tip 5:Avoid using Powder or matte Makeup

First, a disclaimer: i am  not saying that if you have dry skin, there is no powder or matte makeup out there that will work for you. It’s definitely possible, but as a general rule, however, you should try to stick to cream or liquid makeup that promises a dewy finish. Most matte and powder makeup will only emphasize dry skin and can easily look caked-on.
If your dry skin is making it difficult to wear makeup, try a routine of light moisturizer, BB cream or foundation with a dewy finish (Maybelline, Lancôme ), and a creamy concealer (such as Milani Concealer). If your T-zone gets shiny, use blotting papers instead of layering powder .

Tip 6:Becareful when choosing your Face Mask

Face masks can be a lot of fun, and sometimes you just want to post  mask selfie on Instagram or snapchat . If you have dry skin, however, you need to be very choosy about which masks you put on your face. Many masks that promise to purify, shrink pores and remove blackheads are extremely drying. Instead, look for masks that offer hydration, soothing, or added moisture. Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask and grainier mask are great options for those with dry skin.
