Having dry, sensitive skin can be challenging. Looking for a set of skincare products that isn’t too harsh to cause unwanted redness, patchiness, and flakiness is no easy feat. But with the right ingredients to look for, you’ll build your dream skincare team in no time.
It all boils down to extra hydration, and extra gentle ingredients–one moisturizer isn’t enough to get the job done. We’ve tried and tested a foolproof skincare routine using gentle, skin-loving ingredients, and the results were amazing. Read on for your ultimate guide to a more supple, healthy skin!
Simple Micellar Cleansing Water
Compared to alcohol-infused toners that often feel too drying, this toner literally feels like splashing water on your face–it’s made up of triple purified water, after all. This micellar water gets the job done by removing dirt and makeup in a gentle and refreshing way. Makeup artist Anthea Bueno swears by this drugstore find too!
Dr. Belmeur Daily Repair Toner, Php 995
For a smooth milky texture, you can opt for this repair toner with a cooling and soothing effect on dry skin. It feels like a moisturizer and a toner combined, leaving you with a relaxed and fresh no-makeup feeling before you doze off.
Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash
Washing your face should never feel like you’ve stripped down all the makeup, and even the natural oils. Go for facial washes which contain healthy ingredients like Vitamin E and B5 (nourishes the skin), and Bisabolol (soothes and calms the skin). They cleanse your face without leaving it dry and tight.
Dr. Belmeur Daily Repair Ato Salt Cream, Php 1,495
We’ve tried this salt cream that works like a moisturizer, only better. It acts like a skin barrier that will strengthen the protective function of the skin. Our favorite part? Its thick texture leaves a calming feeling when evenly spread throughout the face.
