This winter has been brutal on my already dry skin. I use masks, add in super duty serums, make sure I use the best extra hydrating moisturizers, but there is one thing that is so obvious that I overlooked - cleansing. Yes, dry skin care really needs to start with the cleansing. It's true; the double-threat of lack of moisture and washing with harsh formulas can strip skin of natural oils it needs to not only appear smooth and soft, but feel that way too. I've found two solutions.
I've recently tried two new cleansers from Garnier Clean+ and they have really helped kick up my hydration levels.
This is the first oil-cleanser to hit the mass market and it is pretty big news. It really is an innovative moisturizing cleanser that transforms instantly upon contact with water. This oil turns into this soothing, milk like cleanser that instantly dissolve impurities and makeup. It leaves my face super clean with no greasy residue.
This thicker, soap-free formula effectively removes dirt and makeup while leaving skin feeling very hydrated, smoother and softer. I really like this at night.
Look for these two new beauties at your favorite drugstores or mass retailers now.
