The colder weather is coming (soon? hopefully?), and that means dry, flaky skin is also on the horizon (cuuute I know!). So, I’ve put together a list of the products you’ll need for a 10-step skincare routine for dry skin to keep it plump, hydrated and glowy AF even in the upcoming drying temps.
I’ve also tried to keep this list relatively inexpensive – if something is on there that’s on the pricier side, then that means I realllyy stan it! (Thoughts on the word “stan,” btw?? Not sure how I felt using it just now). Also, I only included CLEAN products in this list!
Good luck and keep that skin cuuute! xoxo
1. Oil Cleanser / Water Cleanser
Use 2x/day, every day
“You need clean, safe, and effective cleanser that can leave your skin clean and clear. This 2-in-1 cleanser is unique oil-to-foam blend that double cleanses your face without stripping away essential oils and moisture. It starts off as a nourishing oil to dissolve your makeup & pull out pore-clogging grime then transforms into a bubbly cleansing foam to wash away all that is left behind.”
2. Exfoliating Scrub
“Refining Peel Gel works with natural enzymes and powerful peptides by allowing you to gently rub away impurities and soothe your skin at the same time. The gel helps to gently pick up impurities that dull the skin, and in result, skin will appear more refined, bright, and firm.”
Use 2x/day, every day
“A multitasking water that tones, soothes and hydrates as it preps skin for the next steps in your beauty regimen. Infused with 90% real Rose Water from 100% organic Damask Roses, the refreshing formula pampers skin, leaving complexion soft, fresh and dewy.”
Use 2x/day, every day
“A deeply hydrating and brightening essence that contains more than 93% naturally fermented ingredients, including bifida ferment lysate and 28% saccharomyces ferment filtrate, to deliver instant moisture and skin-plumping benefits.”
*I feel like a lot of people skip this step, but it’ll be super important in your 10-step skincare routine for dry skin because it will help the serum penetrate even deeper into the skin. More hydration all around!
5. Vitamin C Serum
InstaNatural Vitamin C Serum, $17.96
Use 1x/day, every morning
“A powerful solution packed with nutrients to brighten the skin and prevent common signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles and discoloration. To enhance the antioxidant benefits of Vitamin C, our serum also includes Ferulic Acid to defend against damage, as well as Hyaluronic Acid and Sea Buckthorn Oil to support the skin’s protective barrier.”
6. Face Oil/Serum
Use up to 2x/day, every day (or less if desired)
“Andean Rosehip Oil is renowned for its skin healing properties. High concentrations of Omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9, plus antioxidant carotenoids help repair and protect the skin against environmental stresses and visible damage.”
*Do not be afraid of oils if you have oily skin! It’s counter-intuitive, but if you use more oils, your skin will STOP producing it’s own excess oils – and you’ll have less breakouts!
7. Eye Cream
Use every night (or as often as desired)
“Reduce the appearance of dark circles with green tea and caffeine, as apple and mango extracts calm and soothe puffiness. Nourishing mango butter and phospholipids hydrate the delicate eye area for a youthful and fresh appearance.”
Use 2x.day, every day – or more!
“One Perfect Cream is multitasking at its best. Age-defying, brightening, nourishing and moisturizing benefits helps fight visible signs of aging while balancing your hormones to help your skin glow every day.”
Use every morning (and obviously feel free to reapply through the day)
“Award winning, organically crafted and coral reef safe with non-nano zinc oxide, aloe, sunflower, jojoba oils infused with organic essential oils of chamomile and lavender. Erbaviva sunscreen (spf 30) effectively provides full spectrum protection (uva & uvb) for the entire family without the unwanted chemicals.”
10. Night Mask
Use up to 3x/week, at night (obviiii)
“The Watermelon Glow AHA Sleeping Mask is a bouncy, breathable sleeping mask made with watermelon, hyaluronic acid, and AHA’s to hydrate, smooth and perfect skin. Amino- and vitamin-rich watermelon intensely hydrates, soothes, and fights free radical damage, hyaluronic acid instantly quenches thirsty skin, and AHAs buff away dead skin cells leaving skin soft, smooth, and glowing.”
