Helping skin go from dry and listless to lush and radiant isn’t as tough as it seems. There are a number of simply ways you can tackle dry skin with options that can fit easily in your purse for when you’re on the go. Such as:
#1 Petroleum Jelly
A handy tube is an easy fit and the skincare scientists from Adore Organic Innovation recommend using a thick, heavy moisturizer rather than a watery serum with a scent.
#2 Hyaluronic Acid
This is a primo moisturizing agent found in any number of products. You want to look for moisturizers that list it at the top of the ingredients list, rather than the bottom, since those tend to contain relatively little. Do a patch test first to make sure it doesn’t irritate you. Also, if you live in a hot, humid climate, you may want to combine hyaluronic acid (HA) with a more conventional moisturizer, since in dry climates HA tends to pull moisture from deeper skin levels.
#3 Lip Balms
Small and simple, they keep lips smooth and kissable.
#4 Olive or Jojoba Oil
Either fits into a handy container and moisture well, though jojoba has an obvious advantage in the smells department.
This is a very helpful add-along to your purse, because we often put on sunscreen in the morning and once we’re in the sun, sunscreen protects us for a maximum of 2 hours, maybe less. So carrying along a small bottle for touch-ups is a good idea. And how does sunscreen impact dry skin? Simple: sun damage makes your skin less capable of holding moisture, so protection is key.
