Skincare Recommendations for Dry Skin

best dry skin products

Combatting my crusty skin is something I'm passionate about... That was a strange sentence, but it's true! My skin is very dry and often flakes off so I'm constantly looking for hydrating skincare products to help prevent this. So today I thought I would tell you about my favourite skincare products for dry skin that I would absolutely recommend.

I've only featured one cleanser in this post and that's because it is my favourite! I use the No7 Cleansing Balm to take my make up off or if my skin is feeling particularly dry and sensitive. This has more of a cream texture than a balm and is so gentle and calming. It's great for dry or sensitive skin as it isn't irritating as all yet leaves skin feeling soft and clean.

My favourite serum is the Pixi Hydrating Milky Serum which I use most evenings before moisturising. This feels so cooling on the skin and really hydrates without making my face feel greasy. When I wake up in the morning, after using this serum, my skin is plump, bright and hydrated. I cannot recommend this serum enough!

Another Pixi product I love is the Glow Tonic which I use in the evening after cleansing. As my skin is dry and flaky this acid toner really helps to get rid of any dead skin in a gentle and effective way. I'm looking into trying the acid toner by La Roche Posay to compare! Sometimes even after using the Glow Tonic I can have some flaky skin in the morning, so to help this I use the Foreo Luna Mini with just a basic (non-foaming) gel cleanser which is much less irritating than an exfoliating cleanser. I chose this over the Clarisonic as it has soft silicone bristles which is more hygienic and gentle. Another bonus is you don't have to buy replacement heads and I've only had to charge my Luna Mini twice in a year and a half!

Lastly, I also really like the Hydraluron serum and masks. The serum is great for days when I'm not really dry and so use it in place of the Pixi Hydrating Milky Serum. I would really reccomend the Hydraluron masks if you need a quick fix of hydration. Both of these products leave the skin feeling plump, soft and hydrated.

What products do you use for dry skin? Any moisturiser recommendations, as I have yet to find one I love!
