Hi @Wadhera ! I have questions: 1. Which moisturizer do you currently use? If it's not doing enough, you should consider replacing it with one that contains more occlusive ingredients like petrolatum, shea butter, squalane, sunflower oil, argan oil, safflower oil, marula oil, mineral oil, or dimethicone—though your dry skin might not be very impressed by dimethicone unless it's combined with at least one other occlusive. (Dimethicone seems to fare better on oily skin; it may not be moisturizing enough for some folks' dry skin.) I don't want to recommend a moisturizer without knowing what you already use. 2. Do you apply moisturizer to damp skin, or do you apply it when your skin's dried down? The former is a much better habit than the latter. If your skin's dried down by the time you reach the moisturizer step of your routine, tap or mist a little water on your skin and then apply moisturizer while your skin's damp. This gives your moisturizer some hydration to seal into your skin. SpoilerYou can use a hydrating mist instead of plain ol' water if you'd like. Throughout my routine, I use COSRX Centella Water Alcohol-Free Toner whenever my skin dries down.When I use The Ordinary "Buffet" 1 oz/ 30 mL (one of my favorite hydrating serums), I follow it with Youth To The People Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Peptides . I find these 2 products are a fantastic hydrating pair: Buffet's hyaluronic acid bearhugs the YTTP mist, and I get skin-strengthening (and hydrating) peptides from both products. I quickly follow that with my moisturizer. You can use a hydrating mist instead of plain ol' water if you'd like.

I quickly follow that with my moisturizer. Hydrating serums & other products: I already mentioned Buffet, but you could also consider something that contains polyglutamic acid (aka PGA, another humectant that may be even more effective than hyaluronic acid) like The INKEY List Polyglutamic Acid Hydrating Serum . (If your skin's sensitive to coconut, avoid that PGA serum.) Both The Ordinary and The Inkey List also make standalone hyaluronic acid serums. SpoilerYou could also consider a hydrating toner or essence. In the morning, I alternate between e.l.f. Hydrating Water Essence and Good Molecules Niacinamide Brightening Toner, both of which contain hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. (I'm testing the Good Molecules product; the e.l.f. product is a tried and true staple in my routine.) Hydrating Water Essence also contains many other hydrating ingredients: carrageenan, urea, sodium PCA, coconut water, and trehalose. You could also consider a hydrating toner or essence.

I use some honey sheet masks once in a while, but I can't use honey too frequently on my skin. You may want to check out Farmacy's honey-based products.

Tower 28 SOS Daily Rescue Spray totally clears up maskne based on my daughter’s results. Clean products with strong reviews from others as well. Also check out Tulsa’s acne line. Probiotic based and Doctor developed. I have used a ton of their stuff not for acne and it’s all been really good. Also think about what goes on inside. Consider a supplement from Hum Daily Cleanse or Skin Squad. When I added probiotics to my routine my skin loved it.

Olaplex Hair Care is awesome. 3,4,5, and the Bond Builder System. It’s a nice splurge and your hair will look awesome. I now use the shampoo and conditioner exclusively. I have mid-level back length hair and I use about a nickel size of the shampoo, it lasts a very long time.

Glossier Zit Stick is great BP product and Sunday Riley Saturn sulfur spot treatment is super effective but expensive. I like Salicylic Acid too and it is easy to find in drug store products like 10.0.6.
