The Ultimate Skincare Routine for Dry Skin
Our skin is made up of 70% water, 25% of which is in the epidermis, the skin's outer layer. Unfortunately, with age, this layer can become very thin, allowing water to evaporate. The result? Dry skin. It can be tight and will absorb any products very quickly; dry skin is thirsty skin! You may notice fine lines around the eye area. The causes? External aggressors such as pollution, sun exposure, heating, or using harsh cosmetic products, particularly anti-acne products, which are inappropriate for the skin's specific needs.
Cleanse your skin both morning and evening with gentle products. In the morning, use a hydrating cleansing water. In the evening, use a nourishing cream cleanser to remove all traces of make-up and boost the skin's moisture levels. To leave skin spotlessly clean, use a pH-neutral cleansing face soap to respect the balance of the lipid barrier. The L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Milky Foam is a gentle cleanser that eliminates impurities, refines smoothness, and boosts skin texture. Finish with a generous spray of thermal water all over your face. Enriched with minerals, it soothes and smooths the skin as well as hydrating it.
A hydrating serum followed by a moisturising cream is invaluable for dry skin. Choose products enriched with water, hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, and sugars. For a more natural composition, go for aloe vera gel. A serum, with its light texture, penetrates the epidermis quickly and boosts hydration. As for the cream, it shouldn't be too rich; this allows for all of its hydrating agents to absorb properly and for the skin to still breathe. If possible, for the daytime, go for a cream with an SPF. In the evening, apply a richer moisturiser to pamper your skin. It will be immediately moisturised and rehydrated and left supple and soft. You can use the new L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence, which is a water-based formula that penetrates up to 10 skin layers to reveal bright, radiant, crystal clear skin with improved moisture retention.
3. Eye Cream
To prevent fine lines, apply a special eye product morning and evening to the area above the cheekbones. Enriched with the same active ingredients as the previous skincare products, it protects the ultra-delicate and sensitive skin in this area and gives long-lasting hydration. The L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Laser X3 Transforming Eye Cream reduces wrinkles, puffiness, and replenishes skin texture for a new youthful and radiant look.
Dry skin can feel itchy and uncomfortable and finding the perfect skincare products can be overwhelming. Using the right products for your skin will give your skin the hydration it needs and make it look plump and supple. Make these simple steps a part of your daily skincare routine and give your dry skin some much-needed relief.
