When your skin has a thirst to quench, reach for a daily routine that hydrates and locks in moisture each step of the way.
Step 1: First Cleanse
Doubling as an effective makeup remover, Ultrabland Cleansing Balm contains vitamin e rich almond oil, soothing rosewater, and humectant honey to help attract and lock-in moisture. Most effective when applied to a dry face and then removed with warm water and a cloth.
“Love this product! It is very creamy and oily and makes my skin feel very soft. I get very dry skin, especially during winter, so this product was perfect for sorting it out. Most other cleansers would strip my skin of its natural oils, and so it would often feel drier after cleansing than it did before! You just have to use a face cloth to gently wipe the product off.”

Step 2: Second Cleanse
For your second cleanse, grab a gentle exfoliation with Angels on Bare Skin Fresh Cleanser. Mixing a pinch of this cleanser with water creates a soothing paste of ground almonds, kaolin clay, lavender, and rose oils. Once rinsed away, your skin will feel soft and balanced.
“Amazing!!! Such a great product helps my dry skin, cleans my pores, makes my skin feel fresh and it gives it a glow.”

Step 3: Mask
Incorporate a mask into your routine 2-3 times a week. Oatifix Fresh Face Mask contains a blend of nourishing fresh bananas, conditioning and restorative illipe butter, and cooling oats to soothe and moisturise dry skin.
“If your skin ever feels dry, dehydrated or dull, this mask will save it. The banana & illipe butter is soothing and moisturising. After leaving the mask on for 10-15 minutes, I hop in the shower. I add a little bit of warm water into my hands & gently rub the mask into my skin in circular motions. This gently exfoliates and regenerates the soft illipe butter.”

Step 4: Tone
Eau Roma Water contains a simple blend of balancing lavender and rose waters. As well as providing a gentle tone, you can use Eau Roma Water to remove remaining traces of your face mask or cleanser. Because our toner waters are alcohol-free, a spritz or two always leaves your skin feeling refreshed and hydrated.
“I love this toner so much! It helps to clear my up my dry skin and get off any dirt and/or makeup that is still on my skin after I cleanse. I’ve gone through so many bottles of this. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight or dry.”

Step 5: Moisturise
A rich, silky moisturiser, Skin’s Shangri La has five nourishing oils, including vitamin E packed almond oil and organic cold-pressed evening primrose oil. Evening primrose oil contains linoleic acid (an essential fatty acid), which helps to retain the skin’s moisture content and aid in strengthening the skin’s protective barrier. Take a fingertip or two’s worth of this cream and sweep over your clean, dry skin to absorb.
“My skin is drier than anyone seems to believe. I regularly get cracked and flaky skin. This is the only moisturiser that actually works - I've even tried expensive non-natural/vegan ones. I put it on at night and a small dot in the morning and I'm good to go. I would definitely recommend for dry skin.”

Step 6: Serum
Those days you feel you need an extra deep condition, pick up Full Of Grace solid facial oil. This serum bar contains murumuru butter - which has a high oleic acid content to help replenish moisture, antioxidant-rich and protective fresh portobello mushrooms, and restorative and toning rose oil.
To use a solid facial oil, just sweep over your skin and gently rub in, or warm between your fingers and massage over your face.
“So simple! Cannot recommend this product enough for dry skin. You don't need a lot and its so easy to apply. Just rub in between your palms and the heat from your hands will hold the moisture. It’s lasted so long as well. Just remember to keep it nice and fresh in the lush paper wrapping.”

The Importance of Sun Protection
While Lush doesn’t currently manufacture SPF-rated products, we strongly encourage adding a facial sunscreen to your routine if you’re out and about. Using sunscreen throughout the year (yes, even on those overcast days!) not only helps protect this sensitive area of your skin from harmful UV rays which can lead to skin cancer, but it also aids in minimising visible sun damage. In Australia and New Zealand, it is recommended you use a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF30.
We’re all a bit different, and that’s okay!
While the above routine has been developed with general skin hydration needs in mind, we know that everyone's skin and the results you are after are so unique.
Our skincare experts in Customer Care love to chat all things skin and take pride in tailoring the perfect personalised routine, so don’t hesitate to reach out to them on Livechat, email, or an old fashioned phone call for a free skincare consultation.
