DRY SKIN ROUTINE
Dry skin is characterized by itchy, flaky and sometimes crackly skin. Dry skin if left untreated can become uncomfortable and is usually aggravated by external factors such as harsh temperatures, stress, artificial ingredients and fragrances. Here are a few simple tips for dry skin:
Stay hydrated. The recommended amount of water to consume daily is 64 ounces (about 8 cups of water.)
Get lots of sleep. Having a good night's rest is an amazing elixir for the skin.
Avoid using harsh ingredients and temperatures when cleansing the skin. Cleanse your skin using gentle cleansers. Use products that are made using organic ingredients and avoid artificial fragrances. Monitor the temperature of the water you cleanse with. Temperatures that are too hot can dry out your skin.
Moisturize often. Dry skin benefits from moisturizers that have a high moisture content. Products that include Aloe Vera, Vegetable glycerin and Hyaluronic acid are especially beneficial to dry skin. Our Rosewater is a great product that moisturizes and soothes dry skin. A few spritzes, and your skin will thank you!
Oily skin is characterized by shiny and sometimes greasy skin. It is prone to blackheads, frequent breakouts and enlarged pores. Here are a few tips for taking care of oily skin:
Oil Cleansing: Oil cleansing helps with managing the oil production on your skin. When oily skin feels too dry, it forces the skin to produce more oil to keep up. Some good oils to use for oil cleansing are olive oil, rice oil and coconut oil. Simply rub a quarter-sized amount of the oil of your choice on your face and follow up with a gentle cleanser.
Stay hydrated: All skin types benefit from drinking water. The recommended dose is 64oz (8 cups) daily.
Steam and Exfoliate: Use a facial steamer to gently prepare your face for exfoliation. Our Moroccan Black Soap is a gentle exfoliant to use. Made from black olives using an ancient recipe, it exfoliates your skin without drying it out. Use weekly for best results.
Combination skin is characterized by an oily T-Zone (Forehead, nose and chin), while other areas remain dry. Here are a few steps to taking care of combination skin:
Use a gentle cleanser: Harsh cleansers are not favorable for any skin type, especially combination skin. The dry areas are dried out, and the oily areas produce more oil to compensate for the lack of moisture, causing breakouts in the process.
Use a toner: Using a toner after cleansing keeps the skin balanced. Our rosewater is a great toner to use. Spritz face after cleansing and apply a moisturizer after.
Use a light moisturizer: Speaking of moisturizers, a light moisturizer is awesome for combination skin! The skin is moisturized without aggravating the dry and oily areas.
Use a night oil: Apply a night oil after cleansing. Our Rejuvenating oil is a great one to use. We use pomegranate and grape seed oils which are rich in Vitamin E. The skin is nourished and balanced. Apply 1-2 drops on your skin nightly.
Steam and Exfoliate: Use a facial steamer to prep your skin for exfoliation, and use a gentle exfoliant such as our Moroccan black soap, especially in the T-zone area. This helps in reducing breakouts.

Refreshing! I use the rosewater as a toner and spritzer just to freshen up during the day. I also use as a make up setter at times. It smells wonderful and my skin feels soft after the spritzer dries up.
