BEST CLEANSERS FOR DRY SKIN
When it comes to the best cleansers for dry skin look for oil-based or cream cleansers with thicker, richer textures that help to lock in moisture as opposed to stripping skin of its natural oils.
BEST SERUMS FOR DRY SKIN
Serums are a great dry skin treatment as they are made up of smaller molecules which can better penetrate the deeper layers of the skin with higher concentrate of active ingredients. Use fingers to gently tap or press a serum into skin and always apply onto wet skin for improved absorption.
BEST MOISTURISERS FOR DRY SKIN
Moisturising dry skin is an important skincare step as it helps strengthen to retain essential moisture and prevent unnecessary moisture loss. The best moisturiser for dry skin will have a thick, creamy texture that leaves skin feeling supple and hydrated but without feeling greasy.
BEST HYDRATING FACE MASKS
A leave-on moisturising mask is the ultimate treat for dry skin. Not only will active ingredients have longer time to nourish, calm and strengthen but the cooling serum and experience also provides a selfcare moment.
WHAT IS DRY SKIN?
Dry skin is lacking in moisture. It occurs when skin is unable to retain water and becomes dehydrated. Dry skin feels uncomfortable, tight, and sore after cleansing, showering or at the end of day. Skin can also become dry when the natural protective skin barrier is compromised by cold or dry weather, hot water and certain skin stripping chemicals, in these instances stinging, chapping, flaking or scaling can occur.
WHAT CAUSES DRY SKIN?
Dry skin can be genetic, but it can also be caused by ageing and environmental factors such as hot or dry weather, wind, and abrasive chemicals that threaten the skin’s protective barrier.
HOW TO TREAT DRY SKIN?
The best way to treat dry skin is to support the skin’s protective barrier and enable skin to retain moisture more effectively. Try to avoid washing your face in the shower or with very hot water, which can strip skin of its natural oils and cause skin to dry out.
