I suffer from extremely dry skin and my skin is also mega sensitive so I have to be careful with what I use to tackle this. So in today's post I will be sharing my guide to living a flake free life.
Step one: Hands, nobody wants to be caught red handed or should I say dry handed in this case, for years I have been using the Nivea Smooth Nourishing Hand Cream, I also love Soap and Glory Hand Food, but I find this one dries much quicker and keeps my hands smooth for longer. It contains macadamia nut oil which is key for soothing dry skin.
Step two: Face, there is nothing worse than a dry face, my face is often dry from various spot tackling treatments which can often leave the face sore and drier than a desert. So I find Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser is enough to leave the skin hydrated and smooth for make up without making you mega shiny and looking more oiled up than Kim K in her 'break the internet' pictures. Also as simple products are so 'simple' it doesn't irritate my sensitive spot prone skin; win win situation right here.
Step three: Body, when jumping out of the shower I want a fuss free moisturiser that will keep my skin moisturised, but will not feel greasy and will not take decades to dry. I have found the holy grail of affordable effective moisturisers- Vaseline Intesive Care Essential Lotion. It also has no funky fragranced ingredients that can often irritate my skin.
Step four: Feet, brace yourself sandal seasoning is coming and nobody wants to be caught slipping with their crusty dry back foot. Soap and Glory Heel Genius is a one stop solution to all your dry foot needs. Although I am not overly keen on the smell, I can learn to live with it, as its not as if you sniff your feet and I'd rather have nice soft feet that smell slightly odd than dry ones.
Step five: Lips- last, but at no means least I cannot bare the feel of dry lips and nothing is more effective that good old Vaseline in my opinion. My favourite is this Cocoa Butter one, you can kiss goodbye to dry lips.
