    Tips for dry skin

    Wearing makeup and having dry skin is a challenge, especially now that the cold weather has arrived. If you aren’t sure if you have dry skin, the things to look out for are; flaky patches, tightness, fine lines and red/sore patches of skin. Dry skin can be difficult to manage but with my simple tips I hope to improve your skin!

    A great way to start is to use a cleansing scrub to exfoliate the skin. This will remove dead skin from the surface and leave you with a smooth base for better makeup application. Don’t exfoliate more than 3 times a week as this can damage your skin! Invest in a good moisturiser, regularly moisturising everyday your skin will be hydrated! Makeup products will dry out your skin throughout the day however with a layer of moisturiser under your makeup your face will stay fresh and hydrated all day. Alongside a moisturiser for smoother skin apply a layer of primer to make your makeup stay put.
