Here at Cliché, we’re all about sharing our Holy Grail items to help the next gal in need. This time, we’re showing how we fight the troublesome effects that arise from dry skin: roughness, irritation, itchiness, redness, and inflammation. Here are a few of our best winter skincare items, which are mostly animal cruelty and testing free, that will help knock the wind out of your dry skin this season no matter what the degree.
Hydrating Makeup Removers:
Makeup is always fun to put on and a nightmare to take off. LUSH’s Ultrabland facial cleanser ($17.95-$29.95), and LUSH’s 9 to 5 cleansing cream ($10.95-$22.95) will get the job done – eye makeup and all – without making your skin feel tight and dry.
Moisturizers & Serums:
Moisturizing is essential for delivering hydration and conditioning the skin while also keeping it feeling soft and looking supple. There’s no real rule as far as its usage; you have to find what works best for your skin type. Burt’s Bees carries an Intense Hydration Night Cream ($24) and LUSH Cosmetics has Celestial ($25.95) and Skin’s Shangri La ($49.95) for dry to severely dry skin.
Masks are fantastic for cleansing the skin (two to three times a week) of its impurities as well as reviving, enhancing, and hydrating the skin. Drugstores like Walmart and Target have Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful Charcoal & Black Sugar Mud Mask ($4.29) while Sephora has its well-loved GLAMGLOW Thirsty Mud Hydrating Treatment ($19-$69). Last but not least, LUSH Cosmetics has fresh facial masks like BB Seaweed for $7.95. Feel free to check out Pinterest for DIY masks as well.
Curious to take a step away from the traditional masks? Sheet masks have made their way back on the map. Though the technique for application is different, the results are still the same. Check out Sephora Lotus Mask – Moisturizing & Soothing and the Sephora Rose Mask – Moisturizing & Brightening for $6 each. These are two of the many sheet masks that Sephora has i in addition to other brands. Other stores that carry sheet masks include ULTA, Nordstrom, and Macy’s.
