Treating Dry Skin


Since the beginning of December my skin started to be very dry. First it was allover my face but now I just have a few patches. I think it must be a combination of the cold weather and dryness from central heating. I found this happened when I went skiing last year; my skin was fine and normal before but as soon as we hit the Alps I was having to coat my face with the only face mask I brought (Origins 10 Minute Mask).

This time round I have avoided using a very stripping cleanser. I stopped with my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser and switched to Burt’s Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser. The Burt’s Bees cleanser feels like a thick oil and has a warming sensation when you apply it. I remove it using a hot muslin cloth. I prefer to steam the product away rather than wash it as I feel a lot of water will make my skin dry out.

Next I recommend a sheet mask because of the sheer amount of serum they contain. I have a selection of Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Masks, my favourite is probably the rice one. This I’ll leave on for as long as I can and then rub in the remaining serum. It leaves my face feeling so plump and hydrated.

Afterwards I still like using my 100% Rosehip Oil. I’m thinking of investing in the MV Organics Rose Plus Booster, can anyone recommend it? I’ll use my normal Embryolisse Nourishing Moisturiser and I’ve started to use a small bottle of Epaderm Emollient Cream that I rediscovered. I had been using it on a rash a few months back. At the beginning I used the cream all over my face but it is so rich it was making me break out so I wouldn’t recommend doing that. Now I just focus it on small areas of the face and it really has helped. I found it in the pharmacy area of Boots.

Please let me know if you have any recommendations. ♡
