The Ultimate Summer Skin Care Routine for Every Skin Type
Here’s one of the golden rules of skin care: not all skin is created equal. For example, people with dry skin types shouldn’t be following the same exact skin care routines as those with oilier skin. In fact, you may be doing your skin a disservice if you’re following a generic routine. Your skin is unique, and should be paired with a daily regimen that will assist in targeting your personal complexion concerns. So, you should always be customizing your day-to-day skin care ritual to keep your skin at its happiest.
Don’t know where to start? Luckily for you, we’ve crafted skin care regimens for every skin type below—a la L’Oréal Paris—to keep your complexion in check. Take a look at our top skin care routines for every skin type below!
When it comes to dealing with dry skin, you should use products that can help moisturize your complexion. Try incorporating some of the products below into your daily skin care regimen for dry skin.
L’ORÉAL PARIS MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER COMPLETE CLEANSER - NORMAL TO DRY SKIN
Your dry skin doesn’t need a harsh cleanser that will strip natural oils from your face. Give your skin a gentle wash with L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin. This cleanser removes makeup and cleanses your skin of impurities without stripping your skin, leaving it feeling refreshed and hydrated.
L’ORÉAL PARIS HYDRAFRESH TONER
Toners are one of the most misunderstood products in skincare. While many people skip the toners and go straight to moisturizing, these products can actually help your skin in more ways than one. One of our favorite toners is the L’Oréal Paris Hydrafresh Toner, which has a gentle, non-drying formula that refreshes and softens skin.

This intensive hydrating moisturizer gives you hours of instant and continuous hydration, and is specifically developed for extra-dry skin.
If excess oil is a concern of yours, look to mattifying skin care products that can help absorb surface shine.
