Dry skin means you’re not producing enough sebum. This may be due to a hereditary predisposition, but more often the problem is ‘homemade’, for example by drying out the skin with harsh cleansers. Soaps and foaming gels are often the triggers, but also strong synthetic actives like retinol, glycolic acids etc. can dry out the skin. With the right care this problem can be quickly remedied by a gentle skin care routine.

This is how you recognize dry skin:

  • The skin feels dry and flaky, especially outside the T-zone on the cheeks
  • Needs a cream right after washing
  • Feels dry again a few hours after application of a moisturizer
  • The symptoms tend to get worse in winter
  • Tends to form wrinkles prematurely
  • The pores appear small
  • Dry skin can also be dehydrated. In this case the skin needs both moisture and oil
  • Dry skin can also be prone to impurities, when the dead skin cells clog the pores, causing inflammation under the surface. The best way to prevent these impurities is to exfoliate the skin regularly and gently.

 

Care

Dry skin benefits from a mild cleansing as well as rich oils and vegetable butters that supply the skin with the fatty acids it needs and thus make it radiant again.

  1. Cleanse: Massage some Everything Oil (or Wonderbalm for very dry skin) into uncleaned skin until make-up, dirt and sebum have dissolved. Dip a Cleansing Cloth in warm (not hot!) water and remove the cleanser thoroughly.
  2. Nourish: Press / pat Floral Essence onto the still moist face, neck and décolleté so that the active ingredients can be optimally absorbed by the skin
  3. Care: Now seal the moisture by massaging a few drops of Master Elixir onto the skin. Apply some Wonderbalm around the eyes and on the lips.

Pro-Tip: Use the Rose Quartz Gua Sha for the massage to stimulate the blood circulation, better oxygenate the cells and make your skin look firmer and plumper.

 

Some holistic lifestyle tips for dry skin:

– A gentle exfoliation loosens dead skin cells and stimulates the new production of cells in the lower skin layers. The Cleansing Cloth is ideally suited for this purpose. Its soft structure gently exfoliates the skin without irritating or further drying it out.

– Apply a mask once or twice a week to make a pale complexion glow. Stir 1 teaspoon of Cleansing Clay with 1 teaspoon of organic yoghurt, 1 teaspoon of honey and a few drops of a rich oil (ideally Master Elixir) into a smooth mask and apply to the cleansed, still moist face. Remove the mask with plenty of warm water before it begins to dry.

– Also supply the skin with valuable fatty acids from the inside: Linseed and linseed oil, walnuts, oily fish such as mackerel, salmon or halibut with their high content of omega-3 acids help to nourish and care for the skin from within.
