Dry Skin is skin which is not producing enough of the natural, lubricating and nourishing oils. The skin feels taut, lacking flexibility and feels dry to the touch often with flaky areas. Dry skin can easily develop fine pores, a pale tone and may be prone to irritation which will show as areas of redness. This skin lacks the natural protective layer that the oils should be providing, so this skin is more open to the elements and temperature changes. This can result in high colour and additional sensitivity to environmental influences. As a dry skin gets older it is certainly more likely to develop fine lines and wrinkles.

If your skin type is dry, hydration is key. When cleansing, avoid many water-based products which may stripe the skin and instead opt for more moisturising cream-based lotion. Our Complete Cleansing Crème Lotion will leave your skin feeling silky smooth and hydrated. Made using a number of nature’s finest ingredients including avocado oil and ginseng. Avocado oil is naturally hydrating, great for improving the quality of collagen in your skin and therefore its overall elasticity. It also has a fantastic ability to retain water and moisture which promotes the production of soft and supple skin tissue. Bursting with essential vitamins, essential fatty acids and antioxidants for the skin, this beauty elixir is a key ingredient to help slow down the signs of ageing. Meanwhile ginseng, a plant extract, promotes skin cell regeneration whilst rebalancing oil gland production. Together these wonderful ingredients will provide your skin with the revitalising and rehydrating cleansing experience it deserves.

If you are looking for an exfoliator, try our Cleanse and Smooth Exfoliating Wash. This gentle exfoliator can be used every 1-2 days on dry skin to help remove any dead skin cells.

Between cleansing and moisturising, before make-up or just when hot and sticky, refresh using the Floral Hydrating Spritzer. This magnificent spray can be used on the face and body leaving your skin plump and firm. What’s also great is that it’s small enough to fit in your handbag and in your hand luggage when travelling abroad.

When moisturising, choose our Intensive Hydra Gel Moisturiser for your base.  Team this with our Calming and Soothing Facial Serum for any areas of high colour or irritation and the Smoothing and Re-texturising Facial Serum to hydrate and smooth, paying particular attention to areas with fine lines and wrinkles, e.g. around the eyes.

Apply a layer of Collagen Body Moisturising Gel as a non-setting mask, once or twice a week to assist in boosting hydration.
