We always hear this complaint: “My skin is so dry.”
But believe it or not, people who suffer from real dry skin is actually not common.
What most are experiencing actually dehydrated skin with itchiness, tightness and flakes.
Of course, nobody likes having flaky skin. Once they see flakes, people immediately gravitate toward exfoliating aggressively. However, this only causes irritation and inflammation, and your skin still flaky.
People also tend to buy crèmes that are extremely rich and heavy. The molecules of these products are large and hard to penetrate. The product just sits on your skin, not doing any good at all.
The key is to first know exactly what you’re dealing with. Then you must approach this skin type with this motto: Everything in moderation.
Limit your exposure to the sun and use sunscreen. Make sure all your products do not strip away much needed moisture. You want your skin care to replace the water you’ve lost overnight.
This is a common, yet tricky skin condition. It requires understanding and proper care to effectively balance its demanding needs. Over the counter products rarely address it.
If you’re frustrated with your skin, come in for a consultation. We can get you on the right track in no time!
