As I age, I’ve noticed that my skin is less oily and more dry. While I used to have to worry about finding products for oily skin, I find myself focusing more on establishing a healthy skin care routine for dry skin. Moisturizing is an important part of this routine.

Skin Care Routine for Dry Skin

One thing that I’ve noticed about products for dry skin is that many are very heavy and almost greasy. I really don’t like the way they feel on my skin. I have been looking for products that moisturize my skin but are light enough not to feel heavy after I’ve applied them. This skin care routine for dry skin is working for me.

  • No matter what type of skin you have, it’s important to remove any sunscreen completely each night. Even if you cannot feel it on your skin any longer, the residue is still there.
  • You should cleanse your skin with a gentle cleanser. Stay way from foaming cleansers as they often contain alcohol which is drying to your skin.
  • You may want to use a gentle exfoliation product to remove any dead skin cells. Because I have sensitive skin, I often skip this step and exfoliate only once or twice a week.
  • Follow up with a light moisturizer like the St. Ives Hydration Lotion. Unlike heavy moisturizers, the St. Ives Hydration Lotion leaves my skin feeling soft without any heavy, greasy feeling after.

The St. Ives Energizing Citrus & Vitamin C Fresh Hydration Lotion is made with grapefruit extract, vitamin C and 100% natural moisturizers. I love knowing that NEW St. Ives® Fresh Hydration Lotion Sprays are made with 100% natural moisturizers:

  • Glycerin, which is known to moisturize skin
  • Shea butter, which contains skin moisturizing vitamins A, E and F
  • Fatty acids, which are known to place moisture back into thirsty skin

You just hold the nozzle about four inches from your skin and spray. Rub it in and it will leave your skin feeling fresh and hydrated. It’s a continuous spray which makes it easy to apply it evenly to your skin.

  1. The bitter cold winter has been awful for my skin!  Thanks for letting me know about these discounts.

  2. This winter weather has done a number on my skin!! I love the St Ives line but had no idea they had a spray on lotion like this!

  3. I really like the idea of a spray moisturizer- too often I skip moisturizing because it is a messy or inconvenient process. This would be great for on-the-go, and St. Ives has some wonderful products!

  4. Great tips. You know, I don’t think I’ve ever tried St. Ives and must change that!!
