Our Best Tips For Hydrating Dry Skin Around Your Nose
Identify Your Skin Type
Once you know your skin type — dry, oily, or combination — choose products designed specifically for your skin. While your true skin type stays the same, your skin’s needs may change slightly due to a variety of factors like a shift in seasons, different stages of life, and travel.
Use A Mild Cleanser
Cleansing and exfoliating too often disrupt the skin’s natural microbiome, creating skin conditions such as dryness, irritation, inflammation, and itching. Opt for the gentlest cleanser for your skin type and exfoliate once a week with products made from fruit acids if you’re experiencing dryness.
Don’t Skip The Serum
Choose a serum made with hydrating ingredients and apply it to freshly cleansed skin, then allow it to soak for a short amount of time before applying moisturizer. Serums are usually lighter weight and it’s always best to apply skincare from lightest to heaviest consistency for maximum benefits.
Choose Best Moisturizer
When purchasing a moisturizer for dry skin, opt for a product that is super emollient with ingredients like natural plant oils, squalane, and ceramides. Apply moisturizer generously and often to dry skin — throughout the day, if needed — focusing on your most parched areas.
Use Facial Oil
When choosing a facial oil for dry skin, be sure to select one made with highly moisturizing ingredients, such as coconut, argan, jojoba, and oat oils. Pat the oil onto your skin and press it in with your fingertips twice daily after applying your moisturizer.
