We all have different skin types. Someone with normal skin is lucky to have balanced PH levels. Someone with dry skin needs more moisture.
Dry skin has low moisture and tends to dry up fast, leading to flakiness. It becomes worse in the hot weather because the skin dries quickly and is always in need of hydration.
Although dry skin can be a little disturbing, people with this skin type are thankful when it comes to making up.
Deep moisturizing, exfoliation and toning are important in maintaining a hydrated skin, especially if you have dry skin.
Face packs can lock in moisture, ensuring skin hydration. It is best to make these face packs right in the comfort of your home.
