Dry skin occurs when skin doesn’t retain sufficient moisture. Dry skin is less elastic and more prone to tearing, which is why early treatment is the best way to avoid undue skin damage in the future.
During winter months the water content of the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin) tends to reflect the level of humidity around it. If left untreated, dry skin can lead to complications.
For example, if dry skin prompts itching, inflammation and breaks or cracks in the skin that can lead to a secondary bacterial infection may result. Establishing a routine skin care regimen is essential to maintaining healthy and hydrated skin.
Unfortunately, many people underestimate the importance of keeping their skin healthy and, as a result, experience dermatologic issues such as xerosis. The increasing prevalence of xerosis with advanced age is believed to be the result of alterations in the keratinization process and in the lipid content of the stratum corneum (the outer layer of the skin) as well as the cumulative effect of environmental factors and physical damage to the stratum corneum.
In addition, many inflammatory dermatologic conditions, such as atopic dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, and psoriasis, can cause localized areas of xerosis. The root cause is leaving your skin extremely dry. So revitalize and replenish your skin with all essentials oils & vitamins required for your skin to hydrate from within.
Lock in the moisture
Skin moisturizers, which rehydrate the top layer of skin cells and seal in the moisture, are the first step in tackling dry skin.
Moisturizers, which rehydrate the top layer of skin cells and seal in the water, are one of the best ways to treat dry skin. They contain three main types of ingredients:
- Humectants. These substances help attract moisture.
- Occlusives. These help seal moisture within the skin.
- Emollients. These products contain oil, water, and an emulsifier to keep the two from separating. They are lighter and easier to apply than petrolatum or oils.
In general, the thicker and greasier a product, the more effectively it will moisturize your skin. Because they contain no water, they’re best used while the skin is still damp from bathing, to seal in the moisture.
