There are seven fundamental types of catastrophes. Beauty is not one of them.

Dry skin often gets a bad rap. There are some positives to having dry skin. Pores are less visible and you rarely ever suffer from chronic blemishes. The downside? If you slack on moisturizing, lines and wrinkles surface quickly and overall your skin will appear flat, dull and aged.

Here are the basics for caring for dry skin:

  • The Right Cleanser: Creamy cleansers are your friend. They offer lightweight hydration which is key for drier skin types. Cleansers that strip your skin of moisture will only result in irritation and advanced aging with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Remember, dry skin needs moisture included with every beauty step, and that includes your cleansers and even your foundation choices.
  • The Right Moisturizer: Select a cream that will moisturize and hydrate skin to keep it smooth and supple. I highly suggest applying cream to damp skin (not wet) in order to lock in water for maximum softness.

Here’s a good five-minute rule to follow: if your skin feels tight just five minutes after moisturizing, your formula isn’t rich enough.

Nighttime Tip: Here’s when you’ll want to kick it up with a super-rich cream loaded with antioxidants. You’d be surprised what a difference maintaining hydrated skin makes in your appearance. Hydrated skin looks plump, vibrant and fresh, not to mention, younger! If your home is really dry, use a humidifier during colder months. Also, always apply a rich eye cream since the skin around your eyes is thinner and more delicate than anywhere else on your face or body. Be sure to include a lip balm at night, as well.
