Dry skin can often feel irritated, uncomfortable and tight when it is not nourished and hydrated with the perfect moisturiser.
The right product can relieve your skin, improving its appearance, reduce redness and ensure any makeup you choose to apply over the top glides over the skin rather than accentuating any dry patches.
What causes dry skin?
Although many of us may naturally have dry skin, external aggressors and our lifestyle choices can also contribute to the dry texture and appearance of our complexion. Cold weather, air conditioning and drastic changes in temperature can all cause redness, flaking and itching as they remove moisture from the skin, attacking its natural protective barrier.
Spending a long time in hot showers and baths can also draw the moisture out of the skin so it is best to keep hot water away from the complexion and only use lukewarm water when cleansing your skin.
