Dry Skin Treatments

Lets combat Dry Skin together!

Dry skincare is all about helping skin retain its natural oils and moisture.

Dry skin types produce less sebum than normal skin types and struggle to keep moisture locked into the cells. Dry skin is easily compromised and more susceptible to free radical damage, premature ageing, dehydration, and flare ups of inflammation.

Signs your skin is dry

Skin feels tight and uncomfortable
Dry, flaky patches - especially around the nose and mouth
Fine lines and cracks
Skin looks rough and dull
Irritated and itchy

Best ingredients for dry skin

Effective ingredients for a skin care routine for dry skin include:

Hyaluronic Acid
The best active ingredient for dry skin treatment is hyaluronic acid. Naturally occurring in your body, hyaluronic acid can hold 1000x times its weight in water making it incredibly effective at boosting the skin’s hydration levels.

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
Effective at restoring the skin barrier to guard against moisture loss and dehydration.

Shea Butter
A natural dry skin treatment to increase skin hydration. Contains stearic, palmitic, and linoleic acids that work together to strengthen the skin barrier against moisture loss.

Rose Essential Oil
Rose essential oil has excellent emollient properties for moisturising dry skin; it also offers antiseptic and astringent properties as well as anti-inflammatory properties that help treat redness and inflammation.

Squalene
A non-irritating and excellent dry skin treatment, squalene is an antioxidant with beneficial moisturising properties.

Frequently asked questions

What causes skin dryness?

Dry skin is a skin condition so for the most part is outside of our control as some of us are simply born with naturally dry skin (i.e. skin lacking oil). Hormonal changes, stress, weather and some medications can also reduce the skin’s natural oil production causing it to become dry.

What do you recommend for dry skin?

As dry skin lacks oil we want nurture and nourish the skin, to help improve the protective barrier. Using a gentle cleanser as well as a nourishing face oil both morning and night is a great way to kick start a dry skin routine. Adding a deeply moisturising mask one or twice a week will also help to prevent dry, flaky skin and really boost your skincare routine.

Does drinking water prevent dry skin?

Drinking water is certainly great for our skin health! However as water helps to boost hydration and keep skin firm and plump, it won’t address a dry skin condition. As dry skin relates to a lack of oil, keeping our skin moisturised is the best way to combat dry, flaky skin.

 

What vitamins are good for dry skin?

Vitamins are essential for our bodies overall functionality, we recommend working on your vitamin intake both internally as well as externally for a healthier body and a more nourished complexion.
