3 Tips & Tricks to Deal with Dry Skin on the Face

Tips for Dry Skin

I have dry skin, so I know how frustrating it can be to deal with. After trying different methods to combat it for years, I have learned some helpful tips and tricks.

1. Always Moisturize

One of my biggest tips is to moisturize your skin each time after you rinse your face. This will prevent your skin from drying out and becoming irritated. I make sure to moisturize at least once in the morning AND at night before I go to bed. The moisturizer at the beginning of the day will give your skin added moisture throughout the day, and moisturizer at night will help your skin repair itself as you sleep.   

2. Carefully Pick Your Moisturizer

Not only should you always moisturize, but you should make sure you have a moisturizer that works well for you. I have tried So. Many. Moisturizers. But I have finally found my holy grail. Since my skin is very sensitive, I need a moisturizer with no fragrance and few ingredients. The one I love is the CeraVe Moisturizing lotion. It is absorbed by my skin quickly and easily and doesn't feel sticky.  And the price tag doesn't break the bank!

3. Watch Your Makeup Application

After moisturizing, I always use a wet sponge to apply my foundation. My favorite sponge is the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. It is very soft and gentle on my sensitive skin. It also allows the makeup to go on very smoothly over dry patches, and applies the foundation evenly. I also make sure to apply my foundation in thin layers to prevent caking.

I hope these 3 quick tips help you keep your skin healthy and moisturized!
