Hi, my name is Kaylin, and I'm a makeup artist. Today, I'm going to be talking about how to clear up acne for dry skin. If you are experiencing acne and you have dry skin, you might want to look at some of the causes of acne. First of all, you may be in an environment with lots of air conditioning. This may dry out your skin. Second, you may want to look at your diet. A lot of people have allergies to dairy, and when they cut this out of their diet, they find out their skin clears up right away. Third, you might also want to think about where you're sweating. If you find that you're experiencing a lot of acne around your hairline, make sure that you shower off after you go to the gym, or experiencing any other activities that might make you sweat. There are three products that we're going to use today. First, a toner. Second, an oil-free moisturizer. And third, an exfoliator. Let's get started. First, pat toner all over your face to remove any excess oil. Make sure that you are patting your face, and not rubbing the product. After toner, you want to restore moisture to your face. So, use an oil-free moisturizer. Rub in the moisturizer in circular motions to help your skin absorb it better. Once a day, you also want to use an exfoliating product, which will help exfoliate your skin, and remove dead skin cells. In order to use an exfoliator, use the same technique as you did when applying moisturizer. Just put it on your face, and rub it in circles. Many exfoliating products have small grains in them that may feel like sugar, which can also be used to help exfoliate your face. Once you have applied the exfoliator, make sure that you rub it in some more to get off all the dead skin cells. Then, rinse with water. Remember when you use an exfoliator to use it between the toner and the moisturizer, so you always leave your skin soft and moisturized. Thanks for watching!
