dry skin type

Best described as a skin type that produces less oils, dry skin type will always need extra help to look nourished and plump. Classic skincare products for those with dry skin include heavy moisturizers and hydrating serums. If you have dry skin, it may feel rough and suffer from red patches and visible lines. Anyone can have dehydrated skin, which occurs when your skin lacks sufficient water and appears dull and feels itchy. But not everyone has dry skin type. Make sure you understand the difference and treat your skin accordingly. 

In all honesty, people with dry skin are fortunate. There are a myriad of solutions found in nature to sooth your skin. From plant oils and butters to antioxidant compounds, such as the EGCG present in green tea, you have plenty of options.

natural ingredients for dry skin 

Natural ingredients are gentle and help nourish your skin. When it comes to dry skin type, try these four natural ingredients to help you achieve smooth and supple skin.

1. shea butter

Plant butters will rejuvenate your dry skin in no time. Shea butter is a luxurious and rich emollient that locks in moisture without clogging your pores.

2. coconut oil

Coconut oil gets its emollient properties from fatty acids. Similar to shea butter, it acts as a sealant to prevent water loss. 

3. green tea

Green tea helps maintain a balance between your skin’s natural oils. Ripe with vitamin E and L-Theanine, both known for their hydrating properties, green tea will improve the elasticity of your skin. And let’s not forget the antioxidants, which help fight cell damage and inflammation to give your skin a youthful glow. 

4. hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic Acid is a polysaccharide that naturally occurs in your skin. Adored for its ability to help moisture-retention and skin-hydration, HA can help soothe your skin. Our levels of HA decline as we age, making us vulnerable to signs of aging.  Applying HA to your skin can even help your skin attract moisture from your environment. 

makeup tricks for dry skin 

Finding suitable products for your dry skin can prove tricky. You need emollient, hydrating ingredients to replenish skin. At the same time, it’s best to avoid heavy or greasy products that may clog your pores. Be sure to avoid essential oils due to the volatility of their fragrance. These oils can aggravate your dry skin. 

Don’t skip your skincare! Without skincare, makeup will aggravate your already dry skin. Try auraïha’s brightening serum underneath your makeup to gently exfoliate your skin and give it a nice hydrating boost. After you apply your makeup, use auraïha’s mist and set spray to prolong hydration and keep your makeup in place throughout the day.
