BEAUTY: The Ultimate Dry Skin Skincare Routine

If you're anything like me and have extra dry skin from face to body then you'll know just how important it is to have your skincare routine on point. 

I suffer from eczema and dry skin across my whole body but my face is particularly dry and makes wearing foundation a challenge when having a bad time with my skin. 

That's why I've decided to share the products I use on my face on the blog because if you too are a sufferer, you will know that any product recommendations from another sufferer are well received. 

Below is my current routine, I am open to using various products that sit outside of those below but I also know what works for me, from high street to high end I mix and match and it's working so let me share it with you. 

Firstly I try and wash my face once a day and my go to face was is the Simple Kind To Skin Moisturising Facial Wash. I tried a couple of others and I find that washes often leave my skin tight and dry but this removes makeup without leaving me feeling like I have had a face lift.

Secondly I reach for the Clarins HydraQuench Cream. I'm sure a lot of people use this as a night cream, but when my skin is screaming out for moisture this is perfect on freshly washed skin and sinks in straight away. 

Thirdly, my newest item, Egyptian Magic Cream which I apply about 30 mins before my face hits the pillow (it will leave a greasy stain if not as it stays quite wet) and let it sink in. This is not recommended for those with normal to oily skin on the face as I think it would only make things worse, however for me it provides an instant fix when I have dry skin patches on my face. 

Finally just before I hit the hay I drop some Clarins Face Treatment Oil. It honestly smells SO GOOD and when I don't have any major dryness this does the job at providing an awesome hit of moisture. 

This all results in waking up with soft moisturised skin. Red and angry patches BE GONE!
