As someone with sensitive skin, I know that keeping the right balance of moisture in your skin can be tricky, because with the wrong products or treatment, skin can get overly dry or overly oily. Like Goldilocks, we’re looking for “just right” — here are the top 5 things that help me!

1. Apply lotion or moisturizer after your wash your face or bathe.

Hitting your bod with a lotion of some sort right after you step out of the shower can help lock in moisture. Just pat yourself dry and apply at will! For your face, stick with a sensitive skin moisturizer (I’ve been using Simple Skincare’s Replenishing Rich Moisturizer (that offers 12-hour moisturization!) and it works great — click here to read my full review).

2. But, avoid OVERwashing.

Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash

Obviously it’s important to wash your hands and body, and cleanse your face, but be careful — too much soaping up can cause your skin to dry out, leading to flakiness and itchiness. I never use actual soap on my face; instead go for a nice, gentle cleanser. I’ve been using the Simple Skincare Moisturizing Facial Wash for a few months now and it has become of one of my all-time favorite facial skincare products — it really does cleanse and nourish my skin without stripping it dry OR leaving an annoying film. LOVE.

3. Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!

Sloughing away dead skin is essential to keeping the new skin underneath nice and healthy. I use a body wash with an exfoliant in it about once a week (this really helps with getting a smooth shave, too) and a different exfoliating product on my face once or twice a week.

4. Don’t forget your beauty sleep.

Nighttime is one of the skin’s best times to heal itself. I use a heavier night cream in the winter than in the summer because I feel like my skin is oiler in the hot months. One of the tricks to dealing with dry skin is not trying to over-moisturize it — that tends to make my own skin feel like it’s dry and oily at the same time!

5. Drink up!

Staying hydrated is really one of the keys to great skin. I’m not talking about overdoing it — I personally have never noticed that loading up on water has any affect on my skin, but I sure can see it in my face when I’m dehydrated! Alcohol especially can be really drying — a good rule of thumb, for more reasons than one, is to make sure that for every cocktail or glass of wine you have, drink a glass of water or a club soda.
