Now we’re in the full swing of the colder winter months we can often find our skin becoming drier and flaky in appearance, as there’s less moisture in the air and our lightweight summer skincare products just aren’t working for us anymore. In this blog we’ll answer your questions on the best skincare products for dry skin and our expert tips on what to look out for, and before you know it your skin will be plumped and hydrated again!


Why do I get dry skin?

This is likely due to your skin losing more moisture than what it’s getting put back in with your skincare products, lifestyle and diet, and plenty of other reasons! It could be taking too many hot showers and using products which strip your skin of essential oils to your age, hormones and skin conditions which can be out of your control. Once you recognise your dry skin then there are a few ways you can help improve it.


What ingredients help dry skin?

Keep an eye out for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate, olive oil, ceramides and glycerin, which are all super nourishing and hardworking. At TEMPLESPA our ethos is harnessing the benefits of science-led ingredients which are proven to have brilliant results with Mediterranean botanicals that help boost the overall performance and experience of the product. You’ll also spot our products are paraben free and we label on our website where we have vegan formulas, include nuts and which are suitable for those pregnant.

What’s the best skincare routine for dry skin?

For when you need inspiration for your dry skincare routine steps, come back to this blog!



You’ll start your skincare routine with a cleanser, either it’s aiding in removing sleep dust and oils from overnight or removing makeup and SPF you’ve worn during the day. You’ll want to look for a cleanser which talks about hydration, nothing that’s too stripping of your skin’s natural oils and helps to leave skin looking and feeling plump and glowing. 

In the morning we love to start with a cleanser like GOOD TO GO Creamy Foaming Cleanser. It’s a lightweight cleanser that transforms from a liquid into a luscious foam and effectively helps to remove makeup and oils without overbearing the skin. Super refreshing and the best way to start your morning!

Our cleanser for the evening has got to be IN THE BEGINNING Deep Cleansing Melt, one of our best sellers and award-winners after all! The buttery balm texture has beautiful crystalline pieces that help to gently exfoliate once you massage it in, turning into a hydrating oil for your skin. You’ll find ingredients like nourishing vitamin E and olive oil which is a known hydrating ingredient for dry skin.



You might often ask, do I really need a toner or what does a toner do? It’s a key part of the preparation in your skincare routine because you’ll want all your skincare steps to be 100% effective. Toners help prepare and balance your skin before the next steps and products and depending on which toner you choose, they can have added benefits for you.

Our newest BE QUIET Soothing Milky Toner includes clever ingredients to calm, settle and hydrate the skin. It’s a creamy texture that sinks into the skin with prebiotics to aid in the skin’s microbiome and niacinamide to boost the skin’s barrier. And the reason why it’s a best toner for dry skin is the added squalene and Alpine rose which reduces inflammation and adds protection.


If you don’t yet have a serum in your skincare routine and aren’t quite sure why would need one, let us direct you to our guide to serums blog. In essence they’re small but mighty highly targeted products that use top performing active ingredients to target particular skin concerns.

For a face serum for dry skin, we love our BE STRONG Skin Strengthening Serum, as it’s designed to support weak skin with a cocktail of vitamins, liquorice extract and Mediterranean botanicals. All combined these ingredients help to hydrate and restore skin’s softness over time. Simply pat the serum into your skin, avoid massaging too much as this stretches the skin, and the leave for a few moments to absorb before following with the next steps in your skincare routine. Serums are designed to work with the lower levels of the skin, so you may not see immediate results, but if you keep on top of regular applications you’ll be reaping in the benefits in no time.


Eye Cream

Did you know the skin around your eyes are super delicate and thinner than the rest of your skin? This means they require more TLC and you’ll want to use the softest touch from your ring finger to gently pat in your eye cream until fully absorbed. 

A great eye cream for dry skin is our WINDOWS OF THE SOUL Hydrating Eye Treatment Gel-Cream that helps to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness with soothing ingredients and a velvet light formula. You’ll see we’ve combined cucumber, echinacea, eyebright and edelweiss to cool and refresh the eyes, while helping tone and brighten.


The finale of any skincare routine for dry skin is a good moisturizer. This is your super nourishing product to instantly restore hydration and keep skin looking plump, glowing and healthy. Your moisturizer will act as a barrier for your skin, protecting it from the outside elements and ensuring a smooth and soft base.

The best moisturizer for dry skin is our DOUBLE CREAM Hydrating Moisturiser that has a rich and creamy texture that dry skin will instantly drink up! You’ll see we’ve added Mediterranean botanicals of olive, avocado, red pepper, horse chestnut and blackberry which are famously known for their hydrating properties for parched skin.


Extra: Mask

This step wouldn’t be something you’d have in your everyday skincare products for dry skin, but a great added extra that you can slot in after cleansing once or twice a week. Our mask for dry skin is QUENCH Rejuvenating Mask, which as the name hints at, helps restore hydration levels in the skin fast. The luxuriously creamy texture is packed with moisturiser ingredients to brighten, firm and tone the skin. You have two ways of using it, apply as a mask for 10 minutes or use overnight with a generous layer for deep hydration while you sleep.
