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.

With over 18 years combined experience in the Aesthetic industry, we have helped many people get over their addiction to moisturiser and use products that stimulate their skin.

Dry Skin FAQ

A combination of skincare and treatments is usually recommended for the optimum results. We would always recommend a HydraFacial to remove dead skin and infuse hydrating ingredients 20 times deeper into the skin than topical application, with no pain and no needles.
At home, regular exfoliation is recommended and using a Hyaluronic acid serum. Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that holds up to 1000 times its own weight in water making it incredibly hydrating.
The best advice we can give anyone is to STOP using high street moisturiser and replace it with a daily sun protection! It takes about 3 weeks for your skin to start make its own hydration again. During this time it will feel incredibly dry, but after this it will start working for itself again. We have cosmeceutical products that can help you get through this phase by increasing your skins natural hydration making abilities.
