SKIN DRYNESS CAN BE A SKIN CHARACTERISTIC OR AN UNDERLYING SYMPTOM FOR OTHER SKIN CONDITIONS.
Dry skin usually indicates a compromised skin barrier and usual symptoms includes a tight, itchy sensation. Dry skin is incredibly common, and can occur in people of all ages and backgrounds for several reasons:
Age causes us to gradually lose hydration in the skin
Cleaning or exfoliating the skin too often
A response to wound healing
An underlying health condition
Products (including laundry detergent and soap) we use
Bathing in ‘hard’ water
Certain medications (such as roaccutane)
Dehydration in the body
TREATMENTS FOR DRY SKIN
The most important step of all, when managing a dry condition, no matter how mild or severe it is, is homecare. Your skincare needs to be fully of nourishing ceramides, humectants, emollients and hyaluronic acid.
Our range of luxury Skinfit facials are designed to restore hydration back into the skin. Dermaplaning and skin peels can be both beneficial for removing the surface dead skin cells that always accumulate with dryer skin conditions.
