Proper care for dry skin

This skin type not only feels stressed by wind and weather, that is everyday life. Due to the lack of moisture, dry skin usually reacts more sensitively to environmental influences and cosmetics. It needs extra moisture and a strong skin barrier. However, since she tends to be sensitive, you must not overwhelm her with too many ingredients.

Proper care for dry skin. But how?

Dry skin primarily produces too few lipids (fats). This makes them susceptible to temperature fluctuations or care products. But dry skin also loses moisture quickly, since lipids protect against moisture loss and these are in short supply. The right care supplies the skin with nourishing native vegetable oils, which interact with the skin barrier and correct the lipid deficiency there. Ideally, moisture should also be added to the skin in the form of glycerin or hyaluronic acid combined with a hydrosol, but caution is advised here: the product should not contain any alcohol or emulsifiers, so that the opposite effect (dehydration) is not achieved becomes.

Dry skin - your care routine with Five in the morning

  1. CLEAN: Wash face and neck with lukewarm water. Drying cleaning agents are absolutely taboo!
  2. CARE: Apply a suitable care product depending on the season. In summer use the moisturizing face serum and mix it with the nourishing face oil for dry skin in the palm of your hand. In winter, replace the facial oil with the richer Shea Cream, because now more protection is needed.

Dry skin – your care routine with Five in the evening

  1. CLEAN: No makeup? Wash face with lukewarm water. Otherwise, gently remove make-up with the natural make-up remover.
  2. NARE: Your skin regenerates overnight. You should not wean her off this mechanism with a rich night cream! You gave her a little care when removing make-up anyway. Care for your skin with the light and oil-free facial serum so that it can devote itself to regeneration without any worries.

Dry skin - special care

A mask with clay once a week gently cleanses and supplies your skin with minerals. Use white (kaolin) or pink clay. Both are gentle and ideal for dry skin. Wash the mask off with water before it dries! You can get pure clay in the pharmacy or in the health food store.

☝️ Taboo for dry skin: Abrasive peelings and aggressive cleansing gels, i.e. anything that rubs heavily or foams!
