Up next in our Summer Skin Type Must-Have blog series, we’ve taken your Dry Skin Type + Your Skincare Concern and paired it with your NEW FAVORITE Root skincare summer must-have. Show your skin some LOVE and give the gift of moisture!

1. Dry + Acne & Pore Minimization

Your New FAV: Fresh Lavender Exfoliating & Moisturizing Cleanser

Dry Skin + Acne & Pore Minimization = Root Fresh Lavender Exfoliating and Moisturizing Cleanser

Do you have dry skin, looking to clear up acne or buff away dry skin? Look no further than the Root Fresh Lavender Exfoliating & Moisturizing Cleanser. This cleanser leaves your skin feeling flawless as it buffs away dry, flakey dead skin and hydrates the fresh skin underneath.

2. Dry + Aging

Your New Fav: Pomegranate Antioxidant Eye Cream + Pomegranate Antioxidant Moisturizer

Dry Skin + Anti-Aging = Root Pomegranate Antioxidant Eye Cream and Pomegranate Antioxidant Moisturizer

These two are truly a dynamic duo for those with dry skin looking for anti-aging benefits. Luscious Organic Jojoba Seed Oil deeply conditions, while our blend of ingredients work to keep skin plump and boost collagen production. Root Pomegranate Antioxidant Eye Cream feeds the delicate area around your eyes with 100% skin-loving ingredients in order to reduce puffiness, hide fine lines, and correct dark circles. Within both the Root Pomegranate Antioxidant Eye Cream and Moisturizer, the Pomegranate Extract minimizes signs of aging and reverses sun damage. Say hello to younger-looking skin! This moisturizer is so lightweight, yet SUPER concentrated; just one pump on your skin will leave you hydrated and rejuvenated as Organic Rooibos Leaf Extract enhances the natural vitality of your skin!

Use: Apply Root Pomegranate Antioxidant Eye Cream after cleansing and removing eye makeup. Gently dab a tiny amount under both eyes and work in, careful not to over stretch skin (you can also spot treat any extra dry or aging areas with our Pom Eye Cream). To apply Root Pomegranate Antioxidant Moisturizer, apply one pump on your hand and gently massage on to face and neck.

3. Dry + Dark Circles & Dullness

Your New FAV: Lavender Sugar Cookie Body Polish

Dry Skin + Dark Circles & Dullness = Root Lavender Sugar Cookie Body Polish

Cane Sugar works to remove dead skin cells, dry skin, dirt and oil that clog pores and dull your skin. The granules in the Root Lavender Sugar Cookie Body Polish exfoliate and open your pores to good moisture, which naturally brightens and hydrates, perfect for someone with dry and dull skin! Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is a natural moisturizer as well, washing away to reveal baby soft skin. This ingredient also boosts collagen production, which is great for battling those unwanted under eye circles. Organic Lavender Essential Oil is a natural anti-inflammatory, making it the perfect ingredient for restoring your bright, natural skin tone. Organic Neem Seed Oil absorbs into the skin with natural occurring fatty acids and Vitamin E, reviving skin’s elasticity without any unwanted grease. The results: super soft & hydrated skin!

Use: Wet your skin and massage onto face in a circular, upward motion. Can also be used on hands, feet, body and our favorite, your lips. Rinse. Use 2-3x per week.
