BEST VEGAN SKINCARE FOR DRY SKIN- OUR KIT
There are millions skincare products on the market, from high end to drugstore ones, the choice is endless. But what when it comes to truly cruelty-free brands? And specifically, what when it comes to finding vegan skincare for different skin types?
We are starting a series of posts to cover all skin types and give you our tips, tricks and vegan, cruelty-free kit recommendations for each skin type.
Let´s start with DRY SKIN.
The best skincare regime for dry skin
Dry skin is a very common skin type which usually affects specific areas of the face, such as cheeks and forehead. Most people would in fact have areas of their face with dry skin and others with normal/oily/sensitive skin.
Skin types are just a general guideline and people rarely fall into just one, but they can be helpful to address at least the main concerns of your skin.
Dry skin usually tends to pull and feels rough. It immediately shows signs of dehydration after being washed and can get flaky in worst cases. A consequence of dehydration can also be dullness, so your skin may look pale and without energy.
The main goal of a good skincare regimen for dry skin is, of course, restablish essential hydration and deeply nourish the skin to improve its water reserves and its ability to retain moisture.
A complete, targeted skincare regimen is everything when it comes to dry skin. Without a good moisturizer, a special cleanser, a serum and an oil, dry skin can rarely find its balance and improve.
We have gathered the best vegan and cruelty-free skincare products to create a specific kit for dry skin. We are going to explain the purpose and goals of each category and explain the key feature of each product we have chosen.
Is there a true difference among cleansers and are there really specific ones when it comes to dry skin? The answer is yes. Many people think a cleanser is the last product they should invest their money on, since it is just going to cleanse your skin and will be rinsed off with water any way.
Truth is, a cleanser may contain specific nourishing, hydrating ingredients which can be super beneficial for dry skin, or may contain instead aggressive, purifying ingredients which will make everything worse.
You want to avoid all those ingredients which are specifically formulated to absorb oil or deeply cleanses skin depriving it of its moisture (like a traditional soap bar, for instance).
Our pick: Kahina Giving Beauty Oil Cleanser. Vegan, cruelty-free, super hydrating and rich in antioxidants, with sunflower, argan and carrot seed oil. Contains Calendula and Blue Tansy to reduce redness and inflammations, so it also covers sensitive areas, as well as anti-bacterial Turmeric.
Toning your skin is an essential step to help restore its ph and prepare skin for the next treatments. The perfect toner for dry skin also contains ingredients to hydrate and restore the skin.
Our pick for dry skin is the Cruelty-free SUKI Concentrated Strenghtening Toner, with nourishing Olive Leaves, Shiitake, Comfrey and Seaweed rich in antioxidants. Use it during the day to revive skin and maintain hydration.
A deeply nourishing serum will boost your skincare routine and is probably a MUST step to treat dry skin. Serums contain target ingredients which can massively improve your skin addressing specific needs. The perfect serum for dry skin contains oil and antioxidants to lock moisture in and repair tissue damage.
Try the vegan Kahina Giving Beauty Restorative Serum with Carrot seed and pomegranate seed oils, Argan oil and vitamin C to brighten skin.
We don´t think there is any need to explain why you should use a face oil if you have dry skin. Restoring essential hydration is the goal of your skincare routine, and what´s best than a face oil to do that? It will make sure your skin is layered with potent nourishing ingredients and prevent any flaking or irritation. You can use it on its own or mix it with the moisturizer.
Suki Nourishing Facial Oil is enriched with jojoba and sunflower seeds oil to lock in moisture and promote elasticity. Evening Primrose, Grapeseed and Carrot will make sure your skin is packed with a high dose of antioxidants too.
The rescue skincare product of any skin type, but especially dry ones. Every skin needs moisture and a dry one needs high doses of hydration to make sure skin water reserves improve and are kept well balanced.
The perfect vegan moisturizer for dry skin has a rich consistency and is full of oils, butters and vitamins.
Our pick: Nakin Natural Anti-Ageing Active Dew Face Cream, with Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Baobab Seed Oil.
If caring for your skin on an every day basis is certainly the key to achieve good results and see a quick improvement, there are many special treatments which can be done a couple of times a week that can just be the finishing touch to a perfect regimen. A treatment such as a face mask or a peeling can boost your skin and give that extra care it needs.
Here are our favourite vegan treatments for dry skin:
Kahina Giving Beauty Moisture Mask, a luxus but needed! A rich treatment to improve skin´s water reserves with argain oil, sunflower seed oil, shea butter, aloe vera, prickly peer seed oil and mushroom extract. Vitamins, antioxidants, hydration and anti-ageing properties all in one!
SUKI Resurfacing Enzyme Peel will eliminate dead skin cells and dry patches, gently exfoliating your skin to help renew cells. Best if used once or twice a week after cleansing skin, it will open pores and let the next treatments penetrate better into the skin.
