How to Fix Dry Skin in Six Simple Steps


  1. Choose a cleanser that is nourishing. Using a mild cleanser that is non-foaming will remove the dirt, makeup and oils without disruption to your skin's natural barrier.  Check out our list of Best Natural Face Wash: Non-Toxic Facial Cleansers For All Skin Types.
  2. Pay attention to your water temperature. Hot water is too harsh and will strip the skin of its natural barrier, use only warm water to wash your face.
  3. Essential hydration will penetrate better once the dead skin cells have been shed. Do so with a physical exfoliation. Keeping those skin cells off the surface will allow the moisture to bind with the skin.
  4. Use a nourishing mask a couple times a week. You will get your best results right after an exfoliation. Cleanse, exfoliate and then mask the skin. This will give your skin the extra boost of antioxidants and humectants it needs to stay supple. Check out our list of Best Clay Masks for Skin Detox, All American Made.
  5. Treat dry skin by applying a facial oil or facial serum containing active hydrating and healing ingredients. Check out our lists of Non Toxic Facial Oils and Face Serums.
  6. Always apply a rich moisturizer to hydrate, seal in benefits of treatments and add a protective barrier from the elements. 
  7. Include the use of a humidifier in your home to combat forced dry air. Using the humidifier will put moisture in the air to ward off the effects of the hot, dry air on your skin. Check out our list of Humidifiers Made In USA
