Living in the desert comes with it’s own set of skin concerns. Here in the High Desert the climate is hot, dry, dusty, and often windy. As a gal who sweats a lot already, by the end of my day my face is oily and dry all in one weird combination. I’ve had to navigate the issues that come with makeup, sweat, and dust clogging my pores. I’ve got three tried and true methods that (when I stick to regularly!) give me healthier looking skin that not only looks great, but feels amazing.

Deep clean your skin 2-3 times weekly

I deep clean my face and neck a few times each week with Bioré® Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub. I love how fresh it smells, but more importantly I appreciate that it doesn’t dry out my skin like most face washes. The fizzy baking soda also gives me control over how much or little exfoliation I need over my skin that day because I control how much powder I use.

The fizzing also gives me weird satisfaction, but more importantly the water activated powder exfoliates, deep cleans my pores, and leaves my skin visibly smoother.

I get the benefits of removing flaky dry skin while minimizing oil. Living in the desert, my skin already fights dryness, so having a face wash I can depend on to not dry me out is the bees knees…and feet…and toes!

Use, use, use moisturizer

Moisturizer isn’t an option when you’re living in a dry climate like the desert. Not only does daily application soothe your skin, but moisturized skin doesn’t wrinkle as fast. I shoot for twice daily, once before I apply my makeup and once after I remove it before bed at the end of the day.

Drink water

Drinking water is essential, but especially so when one lives in the desert. There is often little relief from the sizzling sun so staying hydrated keeps you moving. But drinking water also helps to hydrate your skin from the inside out.

When caring for your skin, it’s important to be able to adjust to the climate accordingly. Using products like the Bioré® Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub that give you a little more control over your routine are a great place to start. And whether you’re a desert dweller like me or not, these tips are a great place for you to start taking control over your skin by incorporating them into your own skincare routine.
