Top Tips Part One: Dry Skin

This is part one of my three part blogging series of Top Tips for different skin types. The first part is my little tricks and tips on controlling or banishing that horrible dry skin! This is not me, in any way, saying you MUST do these things, its just a little bit of advice. 
The products:
My top 3 products I use to combat the dryness are E45 cream, Liquid foundation and Rimmel Primer. When I discovered the rimmel primer I was like "OMGTHISISPERFECT!" it has the consistency of a moisturiser so when you apply it it feels like your skin is getting a little bit of moisture instead of a silicone formula which I found just made my skin worse! Using a liquid foundation as opposed to a powder will help cover any dryness by covering the dry patch instead of exaggerate it by clinging to the dry areas and not blending properly. Finally E45 cream, I will pick this over any facial moisturiser any day! Not only does this moisturise, it soaks in super quick and can help to reduce any redness caused. 
A couple of other things to take into consideration are when washing your face try not to use any harsh exfoliants that could aggravate your skin and cause it to become even drier. If you drive a lot or spend a lot of time in the car try not to have the aircon blaring at your face as it will dry your skin out, much like being outside in winter! However, if you live in the UK you will know you wont have to worry too much about aircon and more about it actually being cold!

I hope you enjoyed this and found it useful. Let me know what you think and if you want to see more.
