Dry Skin: What Routine Should You Adopt?

Do you think you have dry skin? Before taking action, a clarification is necessary: be careful not to confuse dry skin with dehydrated skin. Here are some tips to adopt the right skincare routine and regain nourished, more radiant, and soothed skin.

What skincare routine for dry skin?

To regain comfortable skin, it is recommended to adopt a comprehensive skincare routine that combines essential daily actions (makeup removal and cleansing) with more targeted specific treatments (serum, face mask, etc...):

  • Achieving Clear Skin:

    In the evening, begin your skincare ritual with thecleansing oil composed of 7 ingredients, the texture of which will bring comfort to the skin. It helps to rid the skin of makeup and impurities, all without causing irritation. It also softens and nourishes the skin thanks to the sweet almond oil it contains, which is particularly rich in omega-9. Follow up morning and evening with a gentle and preferably superfatted cleanser like the hydrating wash treatment with palmarosa cold saponified, allowing the vegetable oils contained in the soap to retain all their lipid-replenishing and soothing properties under the action of heat. This hydrating soap will gently cleanse the skin, without aggression thanks to the 8% superfat it contains. You can then complete this beauty routine with a hydrating toner, which will help rebalance the skin's pH, while eliminating any limestone residues present on the face. Concentrated in hyaluronic acid and aloe vera, this lotion helps to rehydrate the skin and reduce feelings of tightness. It is only after these initial steps are completed that targeted anti-dryness treatments can be applied.

  • After ridding the dry facial skin of impurities accumulated throughout the day, it is necessary to deeply nourish the skin with the nourishing serum containing olive squalane . This lipid supply helps to repair the skin's hydrolipidic film, thereby preventing water evaporation. You can complement this treatment with the application of a lipid-replenishing serum containing ceramides and lavender extract, which will reform the skin's hydrolipidic film, protect it from external aggressions, and prevent water from evaporating.

  • Schedule a weekly appointment to exfoliate and nourish:

    Just like all other skin types, dead skin accumulated on the upper layers of the epidermis requires regular exfoliation. It's simply a matter of incorporating a gentle scrub into your weekly routine, such as the regenerating facial scrub with dual-action olive squalane. Not only will it lift off all the dead cells to allow the skin to benefit from the treatments it will receive afterwards, but it also helps to repair the skin barrier.

And the body?

If the skin on the face is dried out, there's a high likelihood that the rest of the body is as well, especially in areas exposed to external aggressions and friction: hands, elbows, knees, ankles... Therefore, it's crucial not to stop at just the face, but to extend your dry skin facial routine to the entirety of your body. In the shower, use the hydrating cleansing care, the same one you use for your face. Then apply either a 100% natural vegetable oil morning and night to the entire body, using circular motions, such as argan vegetable oil. Alternatively, you can replace this oil with a body moisturizing cream made with 10 ingredients. These treatments will nourish, hydrate, and protect the skin. Of course, don't forget to protect your hands and lips, two sensitive areas that tend to dry out, especially in winter. For the hands, opt for the hand balm with 10 ingredients rich in hyaluronic acid, saturated fatty acids, and antioxidants, to protect them from free radicals and reduce feelings of tightness and dryness. For the lips, apply the lip balm with 9 ingredients. It will soften, nourish, and protect the lips from skin dryness.

Finally, it is crucial to prevent your skin from accumulating dryness and dehydration. To do this, avoid exposing yourself to significant temperature variations, especially during winter. The other enemies to be wary of are UV rays, by adopting a sunscreen throughout the year.

Some guidelines to differentiate between dry skin and dehydrated skin.

The difference between dry skin and dehydrated skin is very subtle, as they exhibit the same symptoms: tightness, flaking, and discomfort. However, dehydrated skin is simply thirsty and needs to be relieved with products containing water-derived agents. It's more of a temporary skin condition. However, certain signs can help you: for example, if your skin is uncomfortable in certain areas of the face but produces a bit of sebum on the wings of the nose, forehead, or chin, or if it only feels tight in winter or after cleansing, lacks radiance, or if your makeup does not adhere well and pills.

In the case of a dry skin, the problem is deeper and less related to external factors, such as wind, pollution, cold, UV rays, even though these certainly don't help. It's not lacking in water, but in oil - also known as sebum - which contributes to the composition of the skin's hydrolipidic film. When this film is weakened, sebum production decreases, the skin becomes more fragile and dries out. It's important to note that dry skin is so by nature, just like oily, combination, or normal skin. It causes sensations of tightness, tingling in the most sensitive areas. To the touch, it is often rough. Visually, it can be recognized by the infamous "crocodile skin" effect and signs of dryness, such as peeling skin. Finally, its lack of flexibility makes it particularly prone to skin aging with the appearance of fine lines before the age of 30.
