It’s a lot easier to determine if someone’s skin is dry rather than oily. Key signs to figuring out dry skin are a little more simple. After getting  consent to feel your clients skin you may pick up on dry patches. You may see the skin flaking and peeling. It may even appear dull, with a lack of radiance and enlarged pores. 

   Dryness can cause the skin to become irritated an chaffed. The skin can even  become congested, due to over-production of natural oil, in order  to compensate for dryness. You can see the client loosing plumpness.

Imagine sitting a grape on a counter top for a few days. If you touch them on the third day you will be able to feel a decress in the firmness.  The elasticity on the outer layer has become thinner, resulting in weakness. Your skin reacts the same when its lacking moisture.You may see the skin to be a bit red and or blotchy. When your skin begins to look and dry  and you have done everything in your power to moisturizing it, that could indeed be the problem. You have been improperly moisturizing.

The skin may absorb some of the product that you use, too fast, with no benefit. Some products that you use may absorb the skin very quickly without benefiting you. Dry skin requires rich products with lots of moisture retention (Creams,oils, serum, essences, rehydrating overnight masks). Avoid using products with alcohol.     Make sure you’re exfoliating and masking so that the products can break up any dead skin. This way your skin care regimen will penetrate instead of vacationing on top  of your skin. A tip I want to share is, try to make the best choices for your skin, when it comes to skincare.If you don’t take care of your face,foundation will not be easy to apply. It will show texture and will not be a smooth application.The  foundation finishes that I recommend are radiant/dewy or natural. When setting makee-up, instead of setting dry skin with a powder I like to use a spray. Let me know how these tips were helpful.
