5 Mistakes You Are Making When Cleansing Dry Skin
If you have dry skin you may be weary of some cleansers. You may have had negative experiences with cleansers and shy away from using new products or even shy away from cleansing all together. We’re looking at five common cleansing mistakes people with dry skin make and give you recommendations on how you can keep your skin type hydrated and beautiful.
1. You Use The Wrong Products For Your Skin Type
Many cleansers that are effective on other skin types may be too harsh for dry skin. Their formulas could imbalance your moisture barrier or may dry out your skin more. The best type of cleanser for dry skin is one that is gentle but still gets makeup, sweat and dirt off your face. Lotion cleansers are perfect for dry skin. Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Make Up Removing Lotion Cleanser dissolves impurities and waterproof mascara and the formula infused with plant extract leaves skin feeling moisturized.
2. You Avoid Exfoliating Cleansers
If your skin is very dry or flaky, exfoliating can seem like it would be harsh on skin and potentially make your skin even drier. However with the right product the contrary is true. Exfoliation can smoothe your skin, remove dead skin cells from skin’s surface and prep your dry skin to absorb a nourishing moisturizer post-exfoliation. Opt for a gentle scrub without harsh salts or grains and instead look for a product that is formulated with h ingredients like acids or antioxidants.
3. You Haven’t Tried Micellar Water
Micellar water is the perfect product for all skin types, even dry skin. It cleanses everything off your skin without drying it out, leaving you with fresh, clean skin. Garnier SkinActive’s Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser removes makeup and cleanses skin. It’s a multi-purpose cleanser that contains micelles which capture and lift away dirt, oil and makeup without harsh rubbing, leaving skin perfectly clean, hydrated and refreshed without over-drying.
4. You Don’t Cleanse Every Day
If you’ve had experiences in the past with your skin feeling dry after cleansing, you may now have the misconception that you should just cleanse less. Your skin needs to be cleansed every single day to ensure it functions properly and so that your pores don’t get clogged. After all it’s possible to have dry skin and acne, so you still need to make sure that your skin is clean. After cleansing make sure you use a nourishing moisturizer to restore hydration and give your skin suppleness.
5. You Use Hot Water
Hot water dries out skin and can damage your skin’s barrier function. When you wash your face try to use lukewarm water.
