Skincare for Dry Skin (My Routine)

Hi Ladies!  This winter made my skin so incredibly dry and flaky so I had to do something about it. I tried the whole line of Bare Mineral Skincare products and these past few weeks I have noticed a difference in my skin. My skin is finally back to normal. Bye Bye dry skin. 

 I thought you gals might relate to my skin issues so I thought I would share what I have used these past couple months to get rid of my dry skin. 

Here is my routine.

Morning Skincare

Bare Minerals Purifying Facial Cleanser- This cleanser is a milky texture which is really gentle and great for everyday. This cleanser removes makeup, refreshes and hydrates your skin. I love how this cleanser is gentle enough to rub around your eye area to remove makeup without any stinging. The smell is so refreshing. Smells like lavender.


Bare Minerals Renew and Hydrate Eye Cream- My eye lids have been flaky this winter so I used this morning and night. This eye cream hydrates around your eye area and is anti aging.  

Bare Minerals Purely Nourishing Moisturizer for Normal to Dry Skin- This is my favorite facial moisturizer. Its the perfect about of moisture for your dry skin for everyday. Its a nice light formula that doesn't feel heavy under your makeup.  There are no artificial fragrances and its paraben free.  

Bare Minerals Prime Time Face Primer- This is not technically considered skincare but I do use this on top of my moisturizer before my foundation. The primer with lock in the moisture from your moisturizer. This is make your foundation lay smoother especially if you have dry flaky skin. 

Night Skincare

Bare Minerals Intensive Glow Pads Brightening Treatment- This stuff if the best! Its a 2 month supply of pads. These pads have a soft side for everyday and a rough side for exfoliation. I use this everyday and my skin always looks bright and smooth right after I use it. My pores also appeared smaller and less noticeable as well. FYI you will feel a tingly feeling after you use these pads. This is normal. If the tingle is too much, use the softer side and only use the rough side once or twice a week depending on how sensitive your skin is. 

Bare Minerals Active Cell Renewal Night Serum- I use this serum after I use my glow pads. This serum boosts moisture levels in the skin and helps with cell turnover. Perfect for people with dry skin. All you need is a pearl size amount of this stuff and rub it all over your face. Smells great and its not at all greasy.

Bare Minerals Purely Nourishing Cream- I like to use a cream at nighttime so the extra moisture is absorbed in my skin as I am sleeping. I always wake up to hydrated skin when I use this cream. 

Let me know if you guys decide to try my skincare routine. 
Just FYI: I am not a dermatologist or an esthetician. I am just recommending these products based on my personal experience. 


  1. i love the bare minerals skin care. i want to try the eye cream and the glow pads.

  2. Hi Ariel,
    Thanks for this, I do not use Bare Minerals skin care products, just their makeup, I alternate between Jane Iredale and BM. So I just bought the pads and the night treatment powder, and I was wondering if you have tried it? You write that you have dry skin (which I have as well), do you break out? I am wondering, because I am curious on the BM day cream.
    Thanks for your help! :)
