Step 1: Makeup Remover
Although micellar water is the easy way out, melting off your makeup with a medley of organic face oils will keep you hydrated.

Step 2: Cleanser
You know the drill with cleanser. Never anything too stripping or drying, especially since your skin type is parched to start with. Go for pH-balanced formulas that don't foam up too much, since a strong foam is usually a telltale sign for harsh cleansers.

Step 3: Exfoliator
Exfoliating is as crucial to dry skin as every skin type out there. Your tendency to have dry patches and a dull complexion means that too much dead skin is sitting on the surface of your skin. That said, avoid products laden with alcohol and go for scrubs that feel more like a gentle cleansing oil.

Step 4: Toner
The secret to battling dry skin is to insert hydration in every skin care step. After cleansing, prep with a moisturizing toner that can calm any irritation and tone down redness.

Step 5: Serum
For dry skin, thicker, hydrating serums are best for providing and locking in moisture. Pick a formula that'll leave your skin glowing without leaving an oily film at the surface.

Step 6: Moisturizer
While oily-skinned girls would be hesitant to give oils a spin, you dry-skinned ladies shouldn't be. Argan oil, for one, is a lighter oil that your skin will immediately absorb. You can even put on a few layers if you need more moisture!

Step 7: Sunscreen
Even if you have dry skin, greasy sunblocks can be very uncomfortable. Your best bet would be one with a semi-matte finish to give you a soft glow.
