What is dry skin?
Dry skin can be characterised as flaking, scaly and rough textured. It can feel very tight and in severe cases it can even crack and bleed. The majority of people perceive that they have dry skin, however in a lot of cases this is not true. If you have a real dry skin condition you are born with it. Environmental factors and more commonly, using the wrong products at home are the main cause of dry skin.
What can cause dry skin symptoms:
- Environment - cold weather especially can dry the skin out but also extreme heat
- Hereditary - if you have a true dry skin it can be passed on from your parents
- High street moisturiser - the unknown but most common culprit. High street moisturisers are a combination of oil and water that sit on the surface layers of the skin. This then sends messages to the deeper layers, tricking it into thinking it is already 'hydrated', resulting in your skin switching off it's natural hydration making abilities! Within 3 weeks your skin has become dependent on moisturiser and isn't working properly anymore
Our advice? Stop using moisturiser and replace it with cosmeceutical 'hydrators' that replenish your skins natural hydration making abilities.
