There are certain habits to avoid if you have dry skin.  As fall approaches, your summer glow fades and your skin may appear to be extra dry. This is your reminder that the seasons are changing.

First of all, make sure you are not using a cleanser that will remove the natural oils from your skin.  And remember that certain beauty products might be fine for those with normal or oily skin types, but they can be quite harmful to those with drier skin.

Next, avoid extremely hot showers.  Although they can feel nice and relaxing, they can cause problems if your skin is dry.  The hot water will strip your natural oils.  Be aware of any heat sources such as a space heater as they can also be very damaging.

After cleansing your face, which skincare product should be applied next?

Make sure to put your skincare products on in the correct order.  You need to make sure that your products are able to lock in moisture, and you can do that by layering your products correctly.  First cleanse, then moisturizing serum, followed up by a cream.  This should keep your skin hydrated for an extended period of time.

When your skin is dry, you have to look at skincare in a unique way. Beauty products such as physical exfoliants, alcohol, and foaming cleanser can create even drier skin.
