Your Guide to the Best Skincare Routine for Dry Skin: Tips for a Dewy Glow

Dry skin can be frustrating and uncomfortable to deal with. It can leave your skin feeling tight, itchy, and flaky, and it can even make your skin look dull and tired. The good news is that, with a proper skincare routine, you can restore moisture to your skin and achieve a healthy, dewy glow. 

Best Skincare Routine for Dry Skin

Whether your dry skin is caused by genetics, environment, or age, it's important to regularly cleanse, nourish, and moisturize your skin to avoid flakiness, tightness, and fine lines. A proper skincare routine can make a huge difference, but not all skincare products are created equal and it's essential to use ones that are scientifically formulated to nourish and moisturize your skin.

For example, all Novo Vie products contain NovoSerum™, a patented technology based on cell-free growth factors derived from umbilical cord serum (UCS). This formulation is designed to support the production of collagen and matrix. Below, we’ve outlined a simple, easy-to-follow skincare routine for dry skin.

Step 1. Cleanse with a Gentle Cleanser

The first step in any skincare routine is cleansing, once in the morning and once at night. When you have dry skin, it's important to choose a gentle cleanser that won't strip your skin of its natural oils. Look for cleansers that are fragrance-free, sulfate-free, and alcohol-free, as these ingredients can be drying. Opt for creamy or oil-based cleansers that will leave your skin feeling hydrated and soft. 

Step 2. Exfoliate with a Mild Exfoliant

Exfoliation is an extra important step in a skincare routine for dry skin, as it helps to remove dead skin cells and reveal brighter, smoother skin. However, those with dry skin should be careful not to over-exfoliate, as this can cause further dryness and irritation. Instead, opt for a mild exfoliant, such as a gentle scrub or a chemical exfoliant containing alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs). These ingredients will gently exfoliate your skin without causing irritation.

Step 3. Use a Hydrating Face Serum

After cleansing and exfoliating, replenish your skin's moisture levels with a hydrating face serum. Look for a serum with ingredients that target your specific concerns for dry skin, such as hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid and lecithin to plump up and nourish the skin. Apply face serum in upward sweeping motions morning and night to your face and neck until absorbed.

Step 4. Layer with an Under Eye Serum 

An under eye serum is a must-have in your daily routine for a refreshed and youthful look. It targets fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles and helps firm and hydrate delicate under-eye skin for a radiant, more youthful look. Simply apply a small amount with gentle tapping motions using your finger for best results. 

Step 5. Apply a Moisturizer

A well-rounded skincare routine for dry skin includes moisturizing. Look for a moisturizer that is specifically designed for dry skin, and contains ingredients like ceramides or squalene, which will help to lock in moisture and nourish your skin. 

Step 6. Protect Your Skin with Sunscreen

Finally, it's important to protect your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays. Sun damage can cause dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles, so it's important to wear sunscreen every day, even when it's cloudy or overcast. Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and apply it as the last step in your skincare routine every morning.

Why a Skincare Routine for Dry Skin Is Important 

As we age, our skin becomes drier and loses its ability to retain moisture. This can exacerbate a number of common skin concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Luckily, with a consistent and regular skincare routine, you can slow signs of aging and minimize the need for invasive cosmetic procedures and injectables like fillers and toxins. Plus, our advanced skincare technology, NovoSerum, has been clinically proven to boost collagen and matrix, the building blocks of new tissue, and is used as the primary ingredient in all Novo Vie products. 

With NovoSerum, skin cells are rejuvenated, wrinkles and fine lines are reduced, and skin tightness, elasticity, and smoothness are increased. Ready to implement NovoSerum in your daily skincare routine for dry skin? Browse our collection of premium products today.
