Combatting Dry Skin: the minimalists guide

Combatting Dry Skin: the minimalists guide

For the first time I can remember, my dry winter skin has begun to kick in early. Sure, super dry skin happens in January/February after being tormented by cold winds, snow and freezing rain but October seemed a bit early. Maybe my skin is getting more sensitive to the elements or maybe it’s just become more powerful that my lotions can no longer combat it? Either way, I consulted a few facialists to ensure this doesn’t happen to you. After “suffering” (haha) through an extreme moisture mask each provided the following remedy:

  1. Wash face with a cream cleanser
  2. Apply hydrating serum
  3. Apply daily facial moisturizing lotion (per usual)

I personally, have sensitive skin so here are my recommendations:

Cream Cleansers:

Save: Burts Bees Cream Cleanser and Cetaphil Sensitive Skin and Redness Reducer



Splurge: Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip

Face Serums:

Save: Clinique Moisture Surge Serum and Neutrogena Hydro Boost Serum

Splurge:¬†Vintner’s Daughter – Active Botanical Serum


Face Cream:

Save: Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer and Murad Perfecting Day Cream

Splurge: La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil
