If your skin is dry it will feel flaky, dry and tight and will easily react to external influences.
Dry skin is generally characterised by a sallow tone, fine pores and is very prone to ageing and irritating. Dry skin is susceptible to wind, sun and heat damage and often shows noticeable signs of wrinkles. To keep it healthy, you need to build up the protective lipid layer in the skin by developing an effective skincare regime with serums and moisturisers.
How to Care for Dry Skin
There are many factors as to why you may have dry skin. The change in temperatures, exposure to sun, the type of cleanser you are using, certain medications and hot water just to name a few. All these factors are upsetting the moisture levels of our skin and over time, our protective layer of skin becomes thinner and unable to hold its moisture and elasticity. To treat dry skin you need to restore the balance and avoid these factors.
Your Regular Skincare Regime
A gentle cleanse with a SLS free cleanser is essential for the health of your dry skin and is recommended twice daily, once in the morning and then a double-cleanse in the evening. Our Revitalising Foaming Cleanser is formulated without the harmful chemical Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS). This chemical is found in many personal care products and is an additive that allows cleansing products to foam. SLS is a known skin and eye irritant and has been linked to many other health concerns. If you are using a cleanser with SLS this will most likely be adding to your dry skin concerns. Always ensure you give your face a deep clean to ensure your following serums are able to penetrate into your skin for maximum impact.
With a double dose of the most sought after ingredient for hydration, Vitamin B, our B Serum provides maximum skin hydration. Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) revives skin moisture by stimulating new fibroblasts and collagen secretion to reduce fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother appearance. Vitamin B5 (Panthenol) and Hyaluronic Acid work to restore the moisture in your skin, along with Sodium PCA, a strong hydrating agent responsible for binding moisture to the cells. Treating your skin with this powerful serum will help to restore moisture balance and support the function of the protective layer of skin to prevent it from becoming thin and therefore dry, irritated and mature.
Use a hydrating moisture daily with UVA and UVB properties to help protect skin from the sun. The active ingredients in our Daily Moisturiser Hydrating protect the skin from various effects of ageing such as UV rays, free radicals and other environmental stresses. It nourishes dry skin and has a calming effect.
