Skin Care Regimen Normal to Dry Skin

Nourish your skin
Normal to dry skin types produce the least amount of sebum, an oily secretion from the pore that helps to protect skin and keep it supple.

Someone with normal skin doesn’t usually notice excess sebum on their skin It’s easy to turn normal skin into dry skin by using products that are too harsh and strip the skin’s protective barrier. Dry skin, doesn’t produce enough sebum causing a tight feeling in the skin. It needs to be replenished with nourishing products.


As the first step of your regimen, cleansing removes impurities, makeup, and debris that can build up and clog pores. It ensures you have a clean slate for the rest of your regimen. If your cleanser isn’t specified as a makeup remover, be sure to use one before cleansing.

Toning, an often overlooked step finishes the cleansing process by ensuring the pH of the skin is maintained and removing any remaining residue or makeup that you may have missed during cleansing. Your skin has an acidic mantle that is naturally a pH of 4.5 – 5.5, that protects your skin and reduces moisture loss.

Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells from the top most layer of the skin. Your skin has a natural exfoliation process but certain circumstances, such as aging or sun damage, can slow the process and make it less effective. The simple solution is to exfoliate regularly at home to keep your pores clear, lines more refined, and skin looking radiant and more even toned.

This step addresses specific concerns you may have or want to prevent such as sun damage, dark spots, lines/wrinkles, acne, etc. Generally, you apply a targeted treatment before your moisturizer, but make sure to follow the directions listed on the product.

Moisturizers deliver essential oils, hydration and nutrients to the skin. Many are formulated with antioxidants to prevent and repair free radical damage and anti-aging ingredients.

It’s a myth that you only need sunscreen at the beach or when you’ll be outdoors for hours at a time. Unfortunately, sun damage in cumulative and 15 minutes of sun exposure here and there with no protection, easily adds up to a few hours a week. The sun’s ultraviolet rays are most known to contribute to skin cancer, but it can also be responsible for premature aging, hyperpigmentation (dark spots), loss of elasticity, rough skin texture, and even rosacea.
