Talking Skin Types – Dry skin

Dry skin is a skin condition, something you always have had and always will have. Your skin doesn’t produce enough oil. Dry skin is is often flaky with an uneven texture, and can sometimes be sensitive. When moisturiser is applied, the skin just cannot get enough of it! 

To understand the difference between dry and dehydrated skin check out our recent post Dehydrated or dry? (parts 1 and 2!)

Below I have listed the must have products, the nice to have and the bonus products for your skin type. Please be aware that your individual skin will probably fall into different categories at different times, so a great idea to read all of the blogs that might fit your skin needs.

I have listed the products in order of how you would apply them to your skin as this is another thing that can be quite confusing to many of my clients.
