Current Skincare Routine for Dry Skin
This is probably one of those posts that I’ve been wanting to write for such a long time (we’re talking years), but never got the chance to because my skincare routine has changed so much. I’ve switched out so many items that you won’t believe it. I’ve become better at taking good care of my skin compared to how I used to do it before. I’m more aware of the things that I put on my face, which is why I feel more confident showing you the items that are officially part of my skincare regimen at the moment. It may look like I’m using a lot of products based on the picture above, but trust me they all serve a purpose.
My skin is dry, sensitive and tends to go red when it’s really tired. I used to use a lot of products with perfume, which wasn’t such a good idea, but after using perfume free products for a while I’ve noticed a huge difference as my skin looks more even now. So if you’re struggling with dry/sensitive skin then keep on reading because you’ll love this post and before I go in depth with the products that I use on a daily basis I’d like to point out that the most important thing for healthy looking skin is water, so make sure you’re hydrated otherwise your skin will tell on you – not kidding! This might seem like a no brainer to some people, but it’s still a very important tip. 🙂
Before I treat my skin with serums and creams I use a face wash. This one is from the brand Neutral and has no perfume, colorants and parabens. It has a foamy consistency when it comes out and I just massage this on my face before using the Foreo Luna facial cleanser. I turn the Foreo on, lightly move it all over my face and proceed to wash my face. I pat my face dry with a towel.
2. Matas Mild Skintonic
When my face is completely dry I have to go on quickly otherwise it’ll get flaky and uncomfortable fast. I’ve been using this skintonic from Matas for almost 2 years now and it’s an absolute must in my routine. I like this one in particular because there’s no alcohol in it, so it won’t dry my skin out, but rather give it more moisture. I just use a cotton pad and a little bit of skintonic for my face. Make sure you go around your entire face – I even do it on my neck. I wasn’t able to find this particular skintonic on Matas’ website, but they’re available in stores.
3. Pure & Care Serums and Jade Roller
I’ve mentioned my addiction for Pure & Care products in one of my previous posts, which I’ll link down below. I’ve been a regular customer for almost a year now and will continue to do so for a long time. When the skintonic feels dry on my face I use a few drops of the snail and hyaluronic acid serum around my forehead, cheeks, nose and chin. The snail serum repairs and hydrates, and the hyaluronic acid hydrates, so they work really well together. The eye serum goes under my eyes and eyelids with a gentle massage using my ring finger. I use the leftovers on my neck. Sometimes I like to use the facial roller after I’ve applied the serums. It really helps on those day when my skin’s basically attacking and doesn’t feel like cooperating with me. The roller cools my redness down. All the Pure & Care serums can be found on their website or the Normal store e.g. The jade roller can probably be found more inexpensive, but this one was the most inexpensive I could find.
4. Neutral Day Cream & Night Cream
Last thing to go on my face is either a day or a night cream depending on the time of the day. I was pleasantly surprised with these ones, since I’ve only been using them for about a month. They’re not too greasy, but still give me the amount of moisture that I need. I use about 1-2 pumps on my hands and gently warm it up before massaging it on my face. I like it better this way because I feel like the product goes into skin much better. I’ve definitely noticed a difference in my skin after using these creams.
Last, but not least is the Mavala eyelash serum. I haven’t used this one enough to say that it’s good or bad, but it’s currently part of my skincare routine. I apply this when I’m doing my nighttime routine, so it can work through the night when I’m sleeping. I’m curious to see whether or not this actually works since I’ve seen a lot of bloggers say great things about this one. I’ll let you know if I’m noticing any difference in the future.
That was a quick list of my current skincare routine. If you have any questions or thoughts regarding this post you’re more than welcome to comment down below or send me an email. I’ll be more than happy to reply.
