Your skin now has a tendency to be on the dry side

The difference between dry and dehydrated skin is that dry skin has less oils, mostly due to genetics, while dehydrated skin is lacking water. When your skin is tight and flaky, that could be signs of both dehydrated or dry skin. Although there is a difference between these two skin states, the cure is similar:

    • Make sure your skin barrier is healthy. Transepidermal water loss (TEWL) that leads to dehydration is often the result of a compromised skin barrier. Higher stress levels (sneaky cortisol plays its part), overuse of potent active ingredients like retinol, acids and physical exfoliants, high pH products (soaps or not using pH-balanced cleansers) can damage the skin barrier. Essential fatty acids and ceramides are components needed to restore your skin barrier and stop TEWL.

    • Double down on moisturizer by using all types including humectants, emollients and occlusives such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and propanediol. Also, make sure that you're applying an occlusive layer on top of your skin to trap the water on the surface. Our facial oils are perfect for this as they help to restore the skin barrier to stop the transepidermal water loss, and they act as occlusive by creating a breathable seal on the skin while making skin soft and smooth.Good hydration ensures that your skin is plump and has enough elasticity to avoid developing fine lines. While dry skin might sometimes feel a bit uncomfortable, it has its advantages, including fewer breakouts and oiliness.

Your best OMG! Routine

Step 1. Cleanse

Cleansing is an integral part of our recommended beauty routine, but don't feel you have to cleanse twice a day. In the evening, a proper cleansing routine to remove makeup, sunscreen, and any dirt is all you need. In the morning, a splash of water is enough.

 

Most gel or cream cleansers don't remove makeup well because makeup is often oil-based, while gel and cream cleansers are water-based. And we know that water and oil don't work well together. We recommend using our Fruit Enzyme Gentle Exfoliating Cleansing Oil first to melt makeup and oil.

 

Our cleansing oil contains a plant-based emulsifier that turns the oil into lotion for easy wash-off. Follow with our Radiance Boost Cleansing Powder to remove the cleansing oil and any residue. Double cleansing ensures that your skin is clean and looks amazing. On top of that, our cleansing oil contains fruit enzymes (pineapple and papaya) that helps to break down the dead skin while being extra gentle so as not to damage the skin barrier.  

 

If you don't wear makeup, our Radiance Boost Cleansing Powder is all you need.

Step 2. Moisturize

Our Nourishing Facial Oil deeply nourishes and moisturizes the skin, prevents water loss, improves the skin's texture, and reduces the appearance of fine lines. It's also:

 

  • Lightweight and fast-absorbing
  • Leaves skin looking and feeling radiant & smooth
  • Great for all skin types, especially for dry and dehydrated skin
  • Perfect for daily use and as a primer for foundation

 

We highly recommend this for dry skin for deep hydration and supporting the skin barrier.

 

Step 3. Sunscreen

 

Choose a sunscreen that works for you in terms of texture and how it feels. Make sure that it has a high sun protection index and re-apply throughout the day before sun exposure.

 

Step 4. Bonus step: Mask

 

Experience the luxury of the spa in your own home with our deeply detoxifying and hydrating Pure Marine Glacier Detoxifying mask featuring Canadian glacial clay. It removes oils, secretions, and contaminants from the skin with antibacterial properties. The best part, it detoxifies without drying so it's perfect for your skin. Use weekly.

 

Remember, you are beautiful. Your skin is there to protect you and is doing a great job. Skin is not meant to be flawless like photoshopped models and filter-heavy Instagram influencers. Skin should have texture and go through different stages to fulfill its most important role to protect you. Show love to your skin with your Oh My Garden Natural Beauty Routine!
