How to Moisturize Dry Skin

How to Moisturize Dry Skin

Dec 8th 2017

Tautness, flaking, chapping, fine lines -- these are the telltale signs that you have dry skin. Dry skin is typically lacking in both water and oil, and needs additional nourishment to balance out the two as well as to provide protection from the elements. Janssen Cosmetics’ Dry Skin line restores both the water and lipid elements in the skin to leave skin glowing, supple, and perfectly moisturized.

Dry skin especially benefits from a multi-layered skincare routine. Layering several products on top of each other has the effect of infusing the deeper layers of the skin with watery moisture while depositing protective lipids on the surface of the skin. Layering also encourages the skin to absorb more of the products to claim more their hydrating and nourishing properties. Don’t be intimidated by an extensive skincare routine -- we’re here to walk you through each step. Check out our sample skincare routine for dry skin!

Cleanser

If you have dry skin, your skin may be sensitive to regular foaming cleansers. Using a milk or cream-based cleanser will gently remove impurities without irritating or stripping moisture from your skin. The Janssen Cosmetics Mild Creamy Cleanser is a gentle lotion cleanser that is pH-balanced to match your skin’s natural acidity level. It effectively cleanses skin without leaving it feeling tight or tense.

Toner

When you have dry skin, it’s helpful to think of your toner step as the first step in hydrating your skin. The Janssen Cosmetics Radiant Firming Tonic bathes skin with moisture, helping subsequent products to absorb more deeply. This watery hydration will be sealed in by thicker products as you layer them in your skincare routine.

Serum

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most powerful humectants in skincare. The Janssen Cosmetics Hyaluron Fluid contains two kinds of hyaluronic acid to draw moisture into the skin, visibly plumping up fine lines and smoothing the complexion. This serum replenishes the water content of the skin while protecting it from further depletion.

Cream

Choose a nutrient-rich, replenishing cream for dry skin, that will seal in the moisture from previous products as well as protect the skin throughout the day and night. The Janssen Cosmetics Night Replenisher moisturizes skin with hyaluronic acid while protecting it with vitamin E and avocado oil. For daytime, the Janssen Cosmetics Day Vitalizer protects skin with lightweight macadamia oil while soothing and moisturizing skin with algae extracts.

Facial Oil

Using a good facial oil can be one of the most effective strategies in a skincare routine for dry skin. Many oils contain healing and antioxidant compounds, and they effectively prevent moisture loss through the skin while softening and protecting skin. The Janssen Cosmetics Face Oil contains squalane oil, a lipid that is naturally found in the skin. Squalane balances the skin and promotes greater elasticity, as well as faster healing. The Face Oil also features macadamia oil to soften and smooth the skin. Best of all, this facial oil won’t leave your skin feeling greasy, just perfectly soft and moisturized.

Don’t be discouraged if you have dry skin. While your skin may need a little extra care, using the right skincare products can restore the suppleness and smoothness to your skin and soothe chapping and irritation. With a wide variety of skincare products tailored to different needs, we’re confident that Janssen Cosmetics can help you find the perfect skincare routine for dry skin!
