If you are facing trouble forming a skincare regimen for your dry skin, you’re not alone. Dry skin is complicated. And while it is not the most difficult skin type to tackle, there is a science to hydrating and healing dry skin. If not done properly, you are likely to get stuck in a loop of moisture loss, skin barrier damage, and continued dryness. Most information and skincare solutions available, unfortunately, facilitate this loop.
What causes dry skin?
There is no single cause for dry skin — it can result from both external/environmental factors as well as underlying or genetic factors. However, there are certain practices and conditions that can aggravate this condition. For instance, using too much heat in your room/surroundings can reduce moisture content and cause your skin to become dehydrated as well as dry. Very cold temperatures can have a similar effect. Additionally, harsh skincare, underlying medical conditions, and ageing can also exacerbate dry skin.
This is why it is important to pick skincare products that can combat the effects of environmental factors while helping the skin restore itself.
Hya-B5 Technology — High-science way to fix dry skin
Managing dry skin requires a mix of lifestyle changes and picking the ideal skincare products to tackle it from the inside out.
When it comes to lifestyle changes, you want to drink enough fluids, avoid extreme temperatures, use a humidifier to maintain the moisture content around you, and wear fabrics that are gentle on your skin.
When it comes to skincare solutions, opt for expert-recommended and clinically researched products. Start with a gentle soap-free cleanser that doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils. You want to avoid harsh acids like salicylic acid as well as they can aggravate dry skin.
Next, you want to pick a moisturizer that can hydrate, moisturize, and protect your skin. The revolutionary hyaluronic acid blend that combines four powerful active ingredients can help you achieve just that. Comprising hyaluronic acid and HymagicTM 4D, it combines different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, ensuring you get deep penetration and hydration as well as visible results on the surface quickly. In fact, it can boost skin hydration by 155% in just one hour. Meanwhile, of the other two ingredients — dexpanthenol or pro-vitamin B5 improve moisture retention and pentavitin seals in the moisture by binding to the skin like a magnet.
And finally, you need to pick a non-reactive, non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, hypoallergenic sunscreen. Sun damage can cause the skin to lose moisture really fast and thereby aggravate dry skin conditions.
