BACK 2 BASICS: ANALYSIS OF THE SKIN: Dry

Analysis:
Feels tight after washing.

May look dry and flaky.

Dehydrated.

Pores are small-almost invisible.

Shows fine lines faster than other skin types

Care:
Dry skin requires special care.
The first thing you want to start off with is a healthy lifestyle and diet with foods high in water content. Fruits and Veggies are your best friend!! And you probably have heard this one over and over again, but I promise you it really does help, try drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day!!
Using richer cleansers, limiting sun exposure, and using a good moisturizer can protect your skins natural oils. You may also want to try layering different textures of moisturizer, it can do wonders the skin. Begin with a lightweight face oil and then layer a richer cream over that. Night creams with hydroxy acids (AHA) help remove the dry environments. Also having a humidifier helps!
