    Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing Dry skin

    Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing Dry skin

    How you care for your skin is utterly dependent on the type of skin you have: oily, normal, combination, dry or sensitive. Easing your dry skin isn’t just about what you put on it. It also depends on how you clean and prepare it for moisture. To know more about the right products just have a look at below mentioned points.

    Cleansers for people with dry skin: In general, if you have dry skin, you should avoid using foaming cleansers and stick to ones that are more moisturizing. Dry skin lacks excess oil, so the worst thing you can do is use a strong detergent or soap. Try using a cleanser with an extra-gentle surfactant such as polysorbate 85 or 60, cocamidropropyl betaine, or caprylic acid, and make sure it has added humectants and emollients. Humectants, such as glycerin and hyaluronic acid, attract water and help the skin retain it. Look for formulations such as creamy lotion or cleansing milk. You’re also a great candidate for a cold cream cleanser, a cleansing oil, or a balm; they basically act on the same gentle cleansing principle.
    Toners for people with dry skin: You’ll see less redness, less flaking, and your skin will feel soothed and comfortable if you pick the right toner for your skin type. Look for water-based formulas that are loaded with beneficial ingredients such as skin-repairing substances,antioxidants, and cell-communicating ingredients such as niacinamide.

    Moisturizer for people with dry skin: Moisturizers are tremendously essential for dry skin as dry skin creates many skin related problems like wrinkles, itching, dull complexion and rough skin.
    People with dry skin types should use a heavier, oil-based moisturizer. In case you have a very dry skin use petrolatum-based products. Creams that contain glycerin, dimethicone and hyaluronic acid are good for combating dry skin problems. Dry skin face cream or moisturizer must contain various important vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin E and vitamin C.

    Tips for moisturizing:
    • Always apply a moisturizer on a clean and slightly damp skin. It helps to seal in hydration.
    • Dab small dots on your face and neck and blend in thoroughly. Use upward motion to do so.
    • Start with your cheeks and then spread the moisturizer gently to your forehead and nose and lastly the chin.
    • Don’t use a moisturizer with SPF at night, as it may lead to clogged pores.
    • Don’t forget to moisturize your neck too.
    • Avoid using heavy creams or moisturizers around the eyes as these could irritate them and cause puffiness.

    Re: Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing Dry skin

    Dry, flaky, itchy and even cracked skin is a common side effect of the fall and winter chill. The low humidity in the air, both indoors and out, is one of the main causes for this annoying seasonal skin issue. The moisturizer you choose can be the answer to your prayers or just making the problem worse.
    Other factors that exacerbate scaly skin include taking hot showers (especially if using harsh soaps that strip the skin’s moisture) and lack of omega-3 oils in the diet. Dry skin can be both unsightly and uncomfortable, but the good news is, plant-based oils and butters can help soothe, nourish and heal your skin.
    Feed Your Skin with Plant-Based Moisture
    Extracted from nuts, seeds and fruits, plant-based oils are one of nature’s greatest beauty secrets. Rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins and nutrients, they provide natural and effective relief to dry skin and hair. Praised for their antioxidant, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits, these amazing oils have the ability to regenerate, strengthen and protect the skin.
    Commercial moisturizers often contain toxins like petrolatum, synthetic fragrance and parabens. To keep your moisturizer on the healthier side, choose nut, seed and fruit oils, which are most powerful when they are pure, unrefined and/or cold-pressed. You can also look for them as the main ingredient in lotions, body washes and lip balms from some of your favorite green beauty brands.


    Best Plant-Based Moisturizers
    1) Shea Butter Because of its rich, heavy consistency, shea butter makes a perfect “extra layer” for winter weather. It’s a thick, creamy butter extracted from the nut of the West African shea tree, also known as “butyrospermum parkii”. One of the outstanding properties of shea butter is its ability to form a barrier on the skin, sealing in moisture and protecting it from the elements of sun cold and wind. It has also been noted for healing scar tissue in the form of hyperpigmentation and stretch marks. For dry feet and heels, apply shea butter before bed and then put on a pair of organic cotton socks!
    2)Coconut Oilis derived from both fresh and dry coconut meat, from coconuts throughout South and Central America, Asia and India. It contains Vitamin E and squalene, a molecule that is close to our skin’s natural sebum, making it easily absorbed by the skin and very moisturizing. Coconut oil also has antibacterial properties, so it is healing for various skin conditions, including eczema, dermatitis and acne.The light, lovely coconut scent will make you feel like the beach isn’t so far away!
    You’ll find it in every health food store and most regular supermarkets. Be sure to look for cold-pressed, pure or virgin coconut oil to get the highest quality and benefit for your skin.

    3) Argan Oil is extracted from the nut of the Argan tree, which is found exclusively in southwestern Morocco. Cultivated and enjoyed for centuries by Moroccan women, argan has been turning up in makeup, skin and hair care. For good reason! Abundant in nutrients and antioxidants, argan oil neutralizes free radicals that cause aging and inflammation. The lightweight, non-greasy consistency makes it an ideal face and hand moisturizer, for all skin types.
