Dry skin is a pressing problem for many people, especially as they age and the skin’s natural processes begin to break down. The symptoms that come with dry skin are unpleasant, including redness, irritation, flaking, burning, and dullness.
When your complexion lacks moisture, you can even see outbreaks. While counterintuitive, this results when dryness causes the skin to overproduce sebum – the skin’s natural oil – which clogs pores and increases the risk of acne.
Naturally, you want to avoid this. That’s why it’s important to understand why dryness occurs as well as some of the products that are best for moisturizing skin.
What Causes Dryness?
Dry skin may result from several factors, including:
•The heat from showers, baths, heat tools for hair, and indoor heating • Drying products, such as harsh cleansers that strip oil from the skin • Exposure to sun, wind, and environmental pollutants • Lack of proper moisturization
The last is especially important. Many people either don’t moisturize enough, or they use the wrong moisturizer. For example, you might use a light water-based moisturizer meant for summer months when in fact a heavy oil-based product is the right approach.
Or you might use moisturizer intended for a different part of the body, such as a facial cream on the hands. Any of these mistakes can have a big impact on your overall complexion. Let’s take a look at what to do differently.
How Can You Combat Dryness?
The answer is to lay the best foundation for dry skin that you can, prioritizing the right moisturizers in your skincare routine. So what exactly is the best moisturizer for dry skin?
That depends on which area of the body you’re talking about. For instance:
Dry skin around the eyes requires expert formulae that ensure proper moisturization as well as time-released penetration to stave off drying throughout the day. Our Triple Oligo Peptide Eye Creamdoes just that, with a blend of three oligo peptides and our patented SD-100 to brighten eyes, reduce dark circles, and kill fine lines and puffiness.
The rest of the face is just as important. Especially in winter, you should opt for a rich hydrating product, such as Bio Hyaluronic Moisture Cream Extreme with SD-100. It combines a rare, marine-based biopolymer, a bio-derived form of hyaluronic acid, and our patented SD-100 concentrate for ultimate moisturization.
Hands are an equally delicate part of the body. Give them the anti-drying power they need with Nutritive Hand Repair Cream, which soothes skin after frequent handwashing, minimizes hyperpigmentation, and strengthens the natural protective barrier.
You don’t want to suffer dry skin any longer, and with the above products, there’s no need. Combat dryness today!
