The Do’s and Don’ts to Treat Dry Skin on Face
Dry skin on face? You’ve come to the right place. Follow these tips to take your skin from dry to fly.
Anyone who’s experienced dry skin wants a fix. Having dry skin on your face is definitely a common issue that can affect you no matter you age or skin condition. But where there’s a will there’s a way! Follow these simple Do’s and Don’ts to learn how to get rid of dry skin starting now.
Don’t: Keep the same routine year-round
Do: Mind the environment
Why: It’s common knowledge that skin gets drier in the winter, and that everyone and their neighbor should be applying extra moisturizer during the wintertime. But did you know that long days under the sun, even in the hotter months, can also dry out your skin? Go for more SPF and maybe a lighter moisturizer during the warmer months, like Clarant Even Skin Tone Daily Moisturizer with SPF, a face lotion with SPF with a lightweight formula that quickly absorbs into your skin, making it a great daily moisturizer.
Don’t: Commit to a 24hr. cream
Do: Adapt your moisturizing routine to the time of the day
Why: Your skin’s M-O changes throughout the day, going from “defense mode” to quiet self-repair.
To get the best out of both functions, make sure your AM and PM routines are a little bit different. In the AM, a gentle cleanser, SPF and a lightweight moisturizer should be your go-to. In the PM, go for some hardcore products: an effective oil cleanser like POND’S® Cold Cream Cleansing Balm that goes from a solid balm to a silky oil to a milky consistency, melting away stubborn makeup and removing impurities. This is where serums, eye creams, and deep-penetrating moisturizers come into play.
If you have sensitive and dry skin, put your trust in a classic, like POND’S® Dry Skin Cream, which is suitable for sensitive skin, dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, and it won’t clog pores. Another great option is POND’S® Crema S, which is specifically designed for dry to very dry skin, so you know this baby will take care of you while you catch some z’s.
Don’t: Pull an all nighter
Do: Get your beauty sleep
Why: 7-9 quality hours each night is what your body needs to repair itself and recover. Stress and lack of sleep can be factors to dehydrated skin. Fewer wrinkles, a glowing complexion, healthier hair, and a healthier appearance are among the many benefits of getting enough snooze time. It’s called beauty sleep for a reason!
Don’t: Layer on pounds of makeup
Do: Always use a makeup remover
Why: Powder products and heavy foundations can cake and crease into fine lines and draw attention to flaky skin. Go for a tinted moisturizer and cream formula blushes and bronzers that will give you a dewy, more radiant looking skin. But remember, not matter the type or amount of makeup you use, to always take it off before going to bed. PRO TIP: Keep POND’S® makeup removing wipes on your night stand so no matter what, you go to bed with perfectly clean and fresh skin in a single swipe.
Don’t: Ditch the water bottle
Do: Stay hydrated from the inside out
Why: It’s no secret that drinking water on a regular basis is key for your body, and since your skin is an organ, just like any other part of your body, it benefits greatly from your daily water intake. Keep in mind the 8×8 rule: eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. Keeping yourself properly hydrated will contribute to healthier, radiant looking skin.
Everyone gets dry flaky skin from time to time, but if you follow these simple tips and get your hands on POND’S moisturizers you will be ready to take your skin from dry to fly.
