HOW TO TREAT DRY SKIN

CHECK THE INGREDIENTS

Skin feeling tight and dry to the touch? Fret not. Help quench it with the most deeply nourishing products in our range. Dry skin is notoriously sensitive, so try not to irritate it further. Look for products that help lock in moisture, hydrate and keep skin happy.

Calm things down and gently remove makeup with our Chamomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter and Chamomile Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. Cleanse away impurities with our Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Cleansing Oil-In-Gel. Wake-up to quenched, comforted skin when you slather on a layer of our new Hemp Overnight Face Mask.

WHAT ARE THE BEST INGREDIENTS FOR DRY SKIN?

HEMP

Our Hemp range has been vigorously hydrating skin for over two decades. Hemp seed oil is known to help restore the skin’s barrier and lock in moisture.

COCONUT

Dry skin driving you nuts? Opt for Coconut. Enriched with coconut oil or extracts, our range will leave skin feeling softer and smelling sweeter.

SHEA

Shea Butter is also known for its intensely nourishing effect. Help cocoon yourself in moisture and slather on Shea after (or during) a shower.

CHAMOMILE

And because dry skin loves a softly-softly approach, wash away your day with our gentle Chamomile range.

ESTABLISH A ROUTINE

Rituals and routines help set us up for better days. And having a dedicated day and night skincare routine can help prevent dry skin.

Start your day with a tall drink of water and an intensely nourishing moisturizer. Our bestselling Vitamin E Moisture Cream locks in moisture for all-day hydration and absorbs easily, so you can get ready faster.

STEP ONE: EXFOLIATE DRY SKIN

To intensely nourish dry skin on your face, body and lips, apply our multi-purpose Shea Butter. It’s packed with the butter of 192 shea nuts.

STEP FOUR: MOISTURIZE DRY HANDS

Keep hard-grating hands feeling soft, smooth and protected with our hydrating Hemp Hand Protector or Shea Hand Cream. For dry, sensitive skin, use Almond Milk & Honey Hand Cream. Our hand creams are lightweight and non-greasy so you can just smooth them on and rub your hands together whenever you feel like they need some quick hydration.

STEP FIVE: PROTECT DRY LIPS

To help keep dry lips protected, smooth on our nourishing, multi-purpose Shea Butter.

"Apply the Shea Butter onto your lips and massage in using circular motions. Repeat when needed. It’s perfect for dry skin,” says Vanda Serrador, Facial & Body Care Expert for The Body Shop.

You can also exfoliate your lips by mixing one teaspoon of sugar with one teaspoon of Shea Butter until it becomes a paste. Again, gently exfoliate the lips and lip line. When you’ve finished exfoliating, apply pure Shea Butter all over lips.
