Hydrate and Nourish: The Perfect Cleansing Routine for Dry Skin

Finding the right products that don't make skin look dull and lustreless is a challenge, and more so when we need to get hold of right products for dry skin like cleanser, moisturizer and other products for dry skin that deeply nourishes dry skin.

Cleansers help to  remove makeup, sunscreen, dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and other pollutants from the skin, which in turn helps to keep the pores clean and prevent skin liaisons like acne. Cleansing the face with the wrong formulation can strip your skin of natural oils, one of the mistakes people with dry skin make when choosing a cleanser.

Before you even think of it, let us tell you skipping cleanser is not the answer to your problem and if you are searching for the perfect products that soothe dry skin, then we have the right solution for you!

The perfect skincare routine for dry skin beauties can be summed up in four steps:

  • Cleansing with a gentle cleanser that doesn't disrupt the skin barrier
  • Toning with an alcohol-free, pH-balancing toner
  • Locking in the hydration with a nourishing moisturizer
  • And don't miss out on sunscreen!

You can also use a serum that is rich in ingredients like active aloe like the Lotus Herbals Active Aloe + Niacinamide Brightening Boost Serum in between to target specific skin concerns as aloe has hydrating, moisturizing and nourishing properties. However, the key to a dry-skin skincare routine is being gentle with formulations and your approach.

Let's take a look at the perfect cleansing routine for dry skin:

Step 1: Using a cleanser

First and foremost, when looking for a cleanser, ensure it is gentle on your skin. If you've got dry skin, it is essential to use mild and hydrating formulation cleansers for dry skin. Use the Lotus Herbals Lemonpure Turmeric & Lemon Cleansing Milk if you have dry skin. This lotus cleansing milk is the perfect combination of gentle and clean. The ingredients comprise lemon, which acts as an astringent, and turmeric, a moisture-balancing agent that maintains the skin's elasticity.

Invest in a cleanser that helps you get rid of makeup and impurities. Moreover, cleansing after you go about your day even if you have applied sunscreen only is important as well. Sunscreen residue in the skin can lead to breakouts if not cleaned properly, so never skip cleansing!

The main aim of cleansers is to cleanse and nourish your skin which is why it is important to steer clear of harsh and abrasive cleansers. Cleansers enriched with properties of natural extracts work best for all skin types including dry skin. And if you are a fan of double cleansing, you can also check out mild formulations for face wash for dry skin to achieve cleansed, supple skin.

Step 2: Using a toner

Once you're done cleansing your face with a hydrating cleanser, gently dry your skin with a towel and opt for a toner to close your pores. Skipping toner for dry skin might lead to pimples. Ideally, it is best to incorporate a hydrating tone with balanced ingredients into a cleansing routine for dry skin, like the Lotus Herbal BASILTONE Cucumber & Basil Clarifying & Balancing Toner that is enriched with the benefits of basil and cucumber. Basil consists of anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that help keep acne at bay. It also helps in alleviating sun tan and hyperpigmentation. It gives nourishing hydration to your skin and balances the pH level to reveal fresh, radiant-looking skin.

Step 3: Using a moisturizer

Give your dry skin that moisture surge it demands! Face moisturizer for dry skin contains emollients that provide long time nourishment to the skin.Get  your hands on the Lotus Herbals WHITEGLOW Skin Brightening Deep Moisturising Cream SPF 20 PA+++ that combines the goodness of lactic acid milk rendering skin lightening properties and Saxifraga flower extracts, this cream will keep your dead skin cells, tan and discoloration at bay. The whiteglow moisturizer combines the benefits of a nourishing moisturizer and protective sunscreen to give your skin maximum benefit. 

Summing up this blog with the benefits of cleansing, know that cleansing doesn't necessarily strip off your skin's moisture if you use the correct formulations. A cleansing routine for dry skin must be gentle yet incredibly nourishing while ensuring the skin doesn't get irritated or become drier.
