School of Skin (1) Dry Skin – what to do…

One of the most common skin conditions I come across as a makeup artist is dry skin.  It’s common because it is so easy to develop.  The weather, air conditioning, pollution, hormones – even certain products can cause dry skin.  So what can you do about it?

Well, you first have to take a long hard look at your lifestyle to ascertain why your skin might be getting so dry.  Do you work outside?  Do you use the right amount of moisturiser?  Do you drink enough water?  It’s usually the most simple of things that gets overlooked that causes the skin to dry out.  But the most important thing you can do for your skin is to not ignore the problem, especially if you have an impending wedding!

My clients can often feel low about the condition of their dry skin, but this needn’t be the case.  Dry skin is often the easiest skin condition to correct with time and the right products.  It just starts with you making a promise to yourself to be kinder to your skin.
