admin@siabotanics February 28th, 2019

Your skin requires a lot of pampering and care especially if it is on the drier side. Dry skin can be the result of a lot of factors–Genetics, the weather at your place or even the fragrance or soap you’ve been using may lead to dry skin. Therefore, just being armed with a basic skin care routine isn’t enough to deal with this skin type. You need to learn more about what you could do to help your skin and even more about what you should avoid limiting your skincare slip-ups.

Here are our TOP 5 NO-NO’s for people who deal with dry skin

    1. BUYING THE FIRST MOISTURIZER or CREAM YOU SEE
      Dry skin needs to be handled with a lot of care and it needs to be moisturized regularly to keep it looking and feeling healthy. Therefore, the moisturizer you choose should work for your skin and not for any other skin type. So don’t buy products that aren’t for you. Instead, take time to research and find products that work for your skin. Desert Aloe and Jojoba Cream from Sia Botanics is our personal favourite. This is specifically designed for severely dry skin and the ingredients are natural and nourish your skin down to the cellular level.

 

    1. FORGETTING ABOUT YOUR HANDS AND LIPS
      We know that people with dry skin have creams and body lotions at hand, in their desk draws or handbag. Dry skin isn’t restricted to the face alone. Hand and lip care often take a back seat during skincare rituals. It is essential that you have hand cream and a lip moisturizer or balm close by that keeps these areas hydrated and supple. Hands and lips can actually ache when they are crying out for moisture.

 

    1. SKIPPING EXFOLIATION
      Dry skin also needs to be exfoliated! Yes, you read that right. It can be daily or twice a week or a pattern of your choice, according to the response of your skin. We recommend you use a gentle face scrub that is particularly designed for dry skin like the Desert Aloe and Jojoba Scrub by Sia Botanics. Once or twice weekly should do. Face scrubs for dry skin actually helps gently exfoliate and remove dry skin flakes, nourishing and hydrating the underlying cells and leaving your skin looking healthy and radiant.

 

  1. TAKING HOT, STEAMING SHOWERS!
    Hot showers are relaxing and help soothe your senses after a long day but this is a complete NO-NO if you have dry skin. Why? Because bathing in hot water can strip your skin of all the moisture and natural oils and leave it drier than ever! Therefore, it is important that you switch to a lukewarm showering session rather than a hot one.</li
  2. USING MATTE MAKEUP
    Let’s get this clear, matter makeup spells disaster for dry skin. Matte finish on dry skin actually draws the eye to any dry patches because of the powdery consistency of the products. Makeup experts always suggest that you use products that adhere to your skin type. Liquid makeup is what works best for dry skin!
