The best skincare routine for dry skin

The best skincare routine for dry skin

When it comes to skincare, taking a less is more approach is usually the best way to go. If you’re suffering from dry skin, this couldn’t ring more true, the key is investing in good-quality products that are going to make a difference, rather than lathering on all the pots and potions you can get your hands on. 

There is a lot going on in the world of beauty and skincare, and no matter what skin type or concerns you have, it’s likely you’ll have to kiss a few toads before you find your prince. But in an attempt to bring you a step closer to finding your skincare equivalent of prince charming, our Skinsmiths have condensed the products our dry-skin friends should always have on hand into the Defeat Dryness ritual kit.

Finding the right products for your skincare concerns has quite literally never been easier thanks to these handy little boxes. Each ritual contains all the essential products you need for your specific skincare concerns and package them up into easy to follow, no frills skincare routines. From dullness to redness there is a ritual to suit everyone, and this includes those who suffer from dryness with the ‘Defeat Dryness PRO’ kits. Here’s a closer look at what you’ll find inside these life-saving packs! 

Essential skincare products for dry skin

We all live increasingly busy lives which means that staying motivated with your one-million step skincare routine can be, well… really hard. Especially if it includes a dozen different products from a tonne of different brands. This is where our Skinsmiths Discovery Kits come to save the day… They’re basically a cheaper option with a few less steps so that your skin gets all the nourishment it needs, but also leaves you with enough time to cook dinner. Here’s a run down on what the PRO Discovery Defeat Dryness Kit includes…

Gentle Cream Cleanser

We know we’re always blabbing on about it, but if you want a skincare routine that works, you simply must have a good cleanser. And it shouldn’t just be a tick in the box either, your cleanser should also align with your overall skincare goals. If you’re trying to combat dry skin, the Gentle Cream Cleanser is perfect for you. This silky emollient-rich formula works to gently remove makeup and daily impurities while simultaneously injecting protective hydration into your skin to nourish dry and sensitive skin. Harnessing the strength of avocado oil, hemp oil, sodium hyaluronate and Skinsmiths hero ingredient, SauvigNZ, this is like kryptonite for dehydrated skin. 

Ultimate Renewal Serum 

Looking to plump, hydrate and lift? This elixir is for you. The Ultimate Renewal Serum includes quite literally all the ingredients you’d ever need for a healthy, glowy complexion. Argireline Peptides work to increase skin's elasticity, while Niacinamide restores healthy skin barrier function, and don’t forget about Sodium Hyaluronate for a smaller form of Hyaluronic Acid that penetrates the skin more deeply. 

Complete Recovery Moisturiser 

It wouldn’t be much of a dryness-busting kit without a good moisturiser would it? Often overlooked in favour of the more exciting serums, moisturiser should never be underestimated. Trust me, no one can brighten up your day faster than a great moisturiser, and the Complete Recovery Moisturiser is exactly that. Put your best face forward with this advanced hydration that seals in moisture and works to repair and protect the skin barrier for healthier and younger-looking skin. 

Daily Antioxidant Defence SPF30

What kind of reputable skincare experts would we be without including sunscreen in your ritual? The Daily Antioxidant Defence SPF30 is a moisturising sheer sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum and antioxidant protection for your skin. It includes organic chemical UV filters which will provide protection from both UVA and UVB filters, while also incorporating Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium Hyaluronate for an extra hydrating boost. 

Comprehensive skincare products for dry skin 

Looking to really step up your skincare game? Then you might be ready for the more comprehensive Essentials Kits. These simply build on the Discovery Kit, but include full-size products and more of them. So you can expect to see all the products mentioned above, but in their full-size glory, as well as a few add ons which include: 

PRO Collagen Eye Complex 

Any skincare junkie will know that you cannot neglect the under-eye area. The PRO Collagen Eye Complex is a ceramide-enriched targeted eye treatment that is specifically designed to hydrate your peepers, while also taking care of this delicate area. It includes (everyone’s favourite) retinol which will increase cell turnover and boost collagen, as well as SyntenolA which is a natural phyto retinol alternative proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  

Cleansing Cloth 

Having the right tools for the job is just as important as having the right products. The Cleansing Cloth is designed especially with your face in mind. It’s gently textured which makes it both soft to the touch, while also being tough enough to exfoliate your skin when rinsed with water. Use it with your daily cleanser for a deep, fresh clean. This unique texture will help to support your skin health while also being delicate enough for sensitive skin.
