If you've ever had the misfortune of knowing a two-faced friend, that's what living with dry skin is like. On the surface, it can seem fine and cheerful but turn your back on it and you've got trouble on your hands. If not cared for well, skin care problems like flaking, itchiness and dry patches can show up unannounced. Here's how you can say goodbye to dry skin that's enough to rival the Sahara with ease.
Step 1 - The double cleansing method that uses oil and water is the answer to every dry skinned girl's worries as it moisturises the face while cleansing it. Massage a few drops of cleansing oil into your face and neck and let it really sink in for 3 - 5 minutes.
Step 2 - Dip a cotton towel in hot water, squeeze it until damp and pat down your face and neck with it. This will soak up any greasiness and soften your skin texture.
Step 3 - For the final step of double cleansing, apply a creamy face wash over your face and neck. Choose one that cleanses grease and grime without sapping away much-needed moisture.
Step 4 - Now apply a few drops of a toner on a cotton pad and pat it into your skin. To boost your hydration further, opt for a water-based toner that's replete with moisturising ingredients like glycerin.
Step 5 - Once the toner has dried, move to the final step of the skin care routine-moisturisation! Choose a rich, creamy day cream to nourish your skin through the day. Dot it over your face and neck and gently massage it into your skin for healthy, hydrated finish.
