How to Use Skincare for Dry Skin Type - The Correct Way
Apart from choosing the correct skincare product, how you use it also plays an important part.
There are still a lot of people out there who uses skincare product the wrong way, without considering the compatibility of product with their skin. If you are someone with dry skin type, learn how to use skincare products with the following tips.
There’s no need to dry your skin
There’s a big possibility that you grab a towel to dry as soon as you’re done cleansing. When in fact, this type of habit is not recommended for dry skin type. According to American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), the best time to moisturize is after shower and cleansing, but before the moisture dries. So next time do remember to apply moisturizer right after shower/cleansing instead of dry it with a towel. This will help your skin to lock in any remaining hydration. If wet face is not your cup of tea, use tissue to gently pat on the skin to absorb some water off your face but still leave some hydration needed by your skin.
Wash your face twice a day
Washing face regularly is a must for all skin types. But one thing to take note is the type of cleanser that you use and how often you wash your face. According to AAD, you only need to wash your face twice a day, and after exercising. Make sure to also use a cleanser specially formulated for dry skin type and clean your face gently.
Don’t miss out exfoliation
A lot of people with dry skin type tends to avoid exfoliation due to irritation concern. When in fact, exfoliation is one of the essentials but with the correct frequency according to your skin’s endurance. If your skin is prone to irritation, exfoliate once a week with a scrub and gentle movement is more than enough. Pay attention to how your skin reacts on these type of treatment.
Don’t forget to use sunscreen
Sunscreen is a must for all skin types, including dry skin type. According to Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it is required to use SPF 15 or higher every day and reapply when needed (ex : after exercise or swimming). Plus, sun protection is not enough with just using sunscreen. According to FDA, there is a limit of time as to how long we should stay under the sun (especially on peak hours from 10AM to 2PM), find a shelter, and cover exposed areas with long sleeves, pants, summer hats and sunglasses to block UV lights.
Serum is a must!
If you are one of the people who owns a dry skin, don’t ever think to skip serum from your regime! Use the correct one that can act as a layer under moisturizer and can help your skin maintain its moisture. With that being said, Extraordinaire Supreme Precious Collagen is the perfect choice.
