Now I can give you a fully customized recommendation based on your skin!
Let's dive in!
I'm going to start by giving you a few simple things that you can start doing right now. Then after that I'll tell you which product types and ingredients you should be using!
1. CLOSE THE BATHROOM DOOR
Keeping the door closed while taking a shower will keep the air in the bathroom more humid. This gives you a longer window of time after showering to apply your moisturizer before your skin dries out!
2. AVOID EXCESS HEAT
Blow dryers, car heaters, and hot showers can all work against you when you have dry skin. If you are using one of these then try your best to make sure they don't directly hit your face or any other area that's dry.
3. DRINK WATER OR COCONUT WATER
You've heard this over and over again, but make sure you're staying hydrated, especially after exercising.
Most people want to immediately start piling on products, but your inner hydration is just as important when it comes to fixing dry skin!
Now, onto the product types and ingredients...
PRODUCTS AND INGREDIENTS YOU SHOULD BE USING
There are two things that you really need to focus on when choosing products: the main ingredient and the product type. Your skincare success will depend on choosing those two things correctly.
Luckily, now that I know all about your skin, I can tell you exactly what you need! Here you go...
YOUR PRODUCT TYPE... OIL
Based on your skin profile and the goals you want to achieve, an oil based product is going to be essential for you. As we age, our skin decreases the amount of natural oil it produces.
This causes our skin to become excessively dry and signs of aging begin to form. By using an oil, your skin will begin to hydrate, heal, and repair itself.
Now see which ingredient you need to focus on...
YOUR INGREDIENT... HYALURONIC ACID
There are a handful of ingredients that you should incorporate, but the right hyaluronic acid product will work wonders to help with your dry skin.
OThe hyaluronic acid molecule is able to hold 10x it's weight in water. When you apply a product that has this in it, it's able to bind that moisture to your skin. It's a miracle ingredient for dry skin!
The only caveat is that you have to be consistent! Use these products every single day! Trust me, after the first few weeks you'll never look back.
Here's something you should remember though...
When it comes to skin care, time is of the essence.
The longer you let your skin go without the proper treatment, the worse those problems will become and the harder they are to fix later on down the road.
The best thing you can do is implement these changes right away! Put those three tips above into practice today, and find both a hydrating oil and a hyaluronic acid product to begin using.
