How do I know if I have dry skin?
Dry skin is usually dehydrated, rough, with a feeling of tightness, and may even appear flaking, expression lines or be prone to signs of stress such as irritation, redness or an itchy sensation.
This happens because the skin loses water and fatty acids (such as Omega acids), which nourish and maintain the protective barrier function of the skin. External agents such as climatic conditions, very cold or very hot temperatures, as well as environmental and digital pollution, also affect the natural conditions of the skin.
Dry skin and accelerated ageing
As a result of this gap in the level of moisture and fatty acids, the skin produces little sebum or oil and needs special care. Dry skin is also prone to premature ageing, as the lack of moisture in the skin tends to accentuate fine lines and lead to the appearance of wrinkles. In many cases, excessively dry skin can lead to other skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis.
To repair the skin and improve its hydration, it is important to follow a skin-specific routine with dry skin care products. Vegetable oils and/or butters help to moisturise and keep dry skin under control.
Daily routine for dry skin care
Take care of dry skin on your face with this routine using natural cosmetic products for dry skin.
Step 1. Facial cleansing for dry skin
Cleansing your face is the first thing you should do twice a day to remove impurities and keep your skin fresh and clean. Use specific cleansers for dry skin that will not make dry skin worse or irritate it. If you use cleansers that need to be rinsed off, rinse with warm water, as too much cold or hot water may worsen skin dryness.
Step 2. Moisturising with Cosmetic Ampoules and a Vegetable Oil
Once the skin is cleansed, hydration is essential.
- Before applying the cream or, in this case, the moisturising oil, we can apply a cosmetic ampoule for the day, such as Beauty In & Out ANTI-POLLUTION EXTREME ampoules, a concentrate of active ingredients with antioxidant activity that protects the skin from environmental and digital pollution and accelerated ageing. For your evening routine, Beauty In & Out ANTI-AGING NIGHT REPAIR ampoules are very suitable for dry skin as hyaluronic acid provides hydration, softness and repairs the protective barrier of the skin. Use half an ampoule of each in the morning and at night.
- After applying the ampoules to the skin, you can apply a vegetable oil suitable for your kind of skin, in this case dry skin, such as Revitalising Rosehip Oil, which regenerates, hydrates and restores the elasticity of the skin. You could also use Macadamia Intensive Moisturising Oil which provides an important supply of Omega-7 fatty acid that helps to improve the hydration, regeneration and nourishment of the skin.
Step 3. What if I have excessively dry areas of my body?
If, in addition to dry facial skin, you have other parts of your body that are particularly rough or cracked, such as elbows, hands or wrists, the use of butters is highly recommended.
- Organic Shea Butter with Sea Buckthorn and Marigold is 100% natural, organic and ideal for nourishing and soothing dry, rough and chapped areas of the skin. Apply to the most damaged areas and massage and spread to melt.
- Or you can apply Almond Oil either on its own or together with your usual body moisturiser, which provides elasticity and hydration to the skin.
