Your dry skin & what you need to know
About nourishing and maintaining your precious skin!
As opposed to oily skin – Dry skin suffers from a lack of the sebaceous production of sebum (i.e. facial oils), leaving the skin with less natural protection from the sun, elements and aging. This is why you need to be very particular about the care of your dry skin.
Dry skin requires a gentler, more calming and nourishing routine to help replenish the oils in the skin and thereby ward off pre-mature aging.
What should I be aware of?
Here are some KEY things that you should know about your skin before choosing your daily facial routine.
- Dry skin tends to be more sensitive and susceptible to irritation.
- Choose a gentle, calming facial wash that doesn’t dry out your skin further
- If your skin is extremely dry to begin with, replace your facial wash with a non-alcohol based toner to disinfect and calm your skin after a simple wash with water
- Because there is a shortage of sebum – the protective wax-like substance that our bodies produce – your skin is more vulnerable to pre-mature aging from the sun and the elements.
- Choosing an appropriate lotion can be tough because most creams and lotions are water-based. Water is a great hydrator – if you drink it.
- As soon as you first spread a water-based cream on your skin, most of it will have evaporated!
- Skin is more susceptible to breakage on contact because the shortage of sebum causes it to be less flexible.
- Again, a good cream that actually provides the protective layer of moisture that your skin needs is your savior as it can penetrate the skin and help regain some of its flexibility.
