We know there are pro’s and con’s to every skin type

But, that doesn’t always help the person dealing with the effects on their skin. So, if it’s a new routine you need to make your skin feel comfortable and balanced, we’re here to help.

Dry skin in particular can often be uncomfortable – feeling taut and dry particularly after washing the face if the wrong cleanser or products are used. Dry skin can visibly look more prematurely aged and lack luminosity.

But what actually causes dry skin? Well dry skin means there is less oil in the skin which, if not treated correctly, can lead to skin conditions such as flakiness, sensitivity, irritation, and being a lot more prone to dehydration


How often should I exfoliate dry skin?

If you have dry skin, you might be familiar with dry patches, roughness and texture.

Thankfully a combination of chemical and physical exfoliants can help reduce this when used in moderation.

Start off by introducing exfoliating products twice a week, and only increase usage if your skin can tolerate it. 


Step 1: Correct cleansing 

The correct cleansing routine is essential as the skin has a pH level that needs to be maintained.

What to use: We recommend double cleansing to assist with protecting the barrier function. Cleanse with the Ella Baché Botanical Cleansing Oil followed by Ella Baché Rinse-Off Cleansing Cream.

How to use: Get a generous amount of Ella Baché Botanical Cleansing Oil out and warm it up between your palms. Gently massage it over your face and neck and say goodbye to dirt and impurities. Remove with damp sponge or soft face towel. Follow with massaging the Ella Baché Rinse-Off Cleansing Cream into your face and neck using gentle circular motions. Rinse off with warm water or a dampened soft face towel.


Step 2: Exfoliating steps

Dry skin can be slower in cellular turnover. You can speed up cellular renewal however with regular exfoliation one to two times per week.

What to use: Alternate your exfoliation with the Ella Baché Refining Exfoliating Gel and the Ella Baché Revealing Fruit Enzyme Exfoliant . These exfoliators for dry skin are both effective and gentle. 

How to use: With wet fingertips, apply the Ella Baché Refining Exfoliating Gel using circular massage movements to emulsify the gel all over face, neck and décolletage for approximately one minute avoiding the eye contour area. Remove with warm water and a soft face towel or sponge.

For the Ella Baché Revealing Fruit Enzyme Exfoliant , activate the powder by combining with warm water in the palm of the hand or the product cap. Mix it up until it forms a smooth paste then gently massage over your face, neck, and chest. Leave on for two minutes for sensitive skin, five minutes for normal skin, and eight minutes for resilient skin. Then simply rinse off with warm water.


Step 3: Skin Treats

Treat the skin with active and deep penetrating serums once to twice daily, followed by deeply nourishing with the Ella Baché Botanical Skin Treatment Oil.

What to use: Ella Baché Botanical Skin Treatment Oil is an ideal facial oil for dry skin as it's packed full of pure potent oils of Hemp Seed, Jojoba Seed and Evening Primrose to repair and protect damaged skin.

How to use: Warm 3-5 drops of Ella Baché Botanical Skin Treatment Oil in the palm of your hands then gently massage into your skin.


Step 4: Moisturiser for dry skin 

Protect and moisturise with a day and night cream that offer a layer of extra nourishment that deeply protects dry skin.

What to use: We recommend using both the Ella Baché Spirulines Firming Day Cream and the Ella Baché Spirulines Firming Night Cream to target dry, itchy skin properly.

How to use: Apply about a pearl size amount to your fingers and gently massage into the skin.
