Skin Care Routine For Dry Skin
What is dry skin?
Dry skin is characterised by flaking, tight, irritated or rough skin. Unless there's an underlying skin condition, it can usually be remedied with a consistent routine and the right products.
Step 1: Cleanse
Why? Remove dirt and oil your skin naturally collects.
When? Twice a day, morning and night.
What? Jack Black Pure Clean Facial Cleanser
Use a gentle cream cleanser. If your skin is still feeling really dry or tight after cleansing, then you might need to experiment with a different brand.
Step 2: Tone
Why? Remove dirt and oil missed when cleansing, and prime the skin for moisturiser.
When? Twice a day, morning and night, after washing your face.
What? Thayer's Unscented Witch Hazel Toner
Toner can help to prime skin, allowing moisturisers and serums to apply more evenly and penetrate deeper into your skin. You’ll want to stay away from astringents, which contain a high percentage of alcohol that could dry out your skin further.
Step 3: Treat
Why? If you want to target a specific issue, such as fine lines and wrinkles, or need an extra boost of moisture, then look at adding a serum to your routine.
When? 1-2 times a day, after toning.
What? Jack Black Protein Booster Skin Serum
Like the vitamin-packed shot you add to your juice, serums are highly concentrated, fast acting and effective.
Step 4: Moisturise
Why? Restore and trap moisture in the skin.
When? Twice a day, morning and night, after toning and/or applying serum.
What? Jack Black Dry Erase Ultra Calming Face Cream
This is where it's time to pull out the big guns. Apply a rich moisturising cream twice daily (once in the morning and once at night), with or without a serum underneath. If your moisturiser doesn't contain any SPF, always apply a sunscreen afterwards.
Step 5: Exfoliate
Why? Remove dead skin cells, revitalise complexion and prep the skin for shaving.
When? 1-2 times a week, after cleansing and before shaving.
What? Triumph & Disaster Rock & Roll Face Scrub
Exfoliating, particularly using hard scrub particles, can make dry skin even drier, so avoid scrubbing too frequently or too aggressively.
