Dry Skin

Indica Medi Spa Can Help You Solve This Problem

The skin on our face is one of the most important body parts that need utmost care. As we age, we may, however, experience a worsening of dry skin. There are many different factors though that will contribute to dry skin.

One of them is having a dry skin type. If you have dry, sensitive skin, then you will have to be especially wary of skin products that can elucidate dryness and irritation. The following is an explanation of the skin types and how to best care for dry skin.

The Skin Types

Most people struggle to even know their skin type. As people get older they also have to consider how skin ageing affects their skin.

Oily skin is never dry unless irritating products are used.

Combination skin has some only parts, usually the T-zone, and other parts that are dry, such as the cheeks.

Normal skin is not prone to dryness or oiliness. Though there are many factors that can cause the normal skin to become dry.

Dry sensitive skin is the bane of all skin care conditions in terms of dryness. Not only is it prone to dryness, but also it can get sensitivity to many irritants like fragrances and preservatives. Special care is needed for this skin type.

Sensitive Dry Facial Skin

If you have dry sensitive skin, then your lipid barrier is already in trouble. This barrier is a combination of natural oils and sweat. It helps to protect the underlying skin from cracking.

Some skin conditions such as rosacea can cause the cracking as well. If you suspect you have this disease, then you will have to visit the doctor. Treatments can be antibiotics, topicals, and perhaps the no touch method.

When the face becomes dry, it will often be sensitive. Yet facial sensitive skin is not always the same as to dryness. It is important to prevent using skin care products that has harmful ingredients such as perfumes and colourants to name a few. Always be on alert to find out the product you are using is dermatologically tested on sensitive skin.

Know the Causes of Dry Skin

Your skin type or a skin disease are not the only problems you can encounter when it comes to skin tightness. The environment is also a big factor.

Usually temperature extremes like summer or winter can really cause this to occur. These are the two seasons that those with dry skin can suffer the most. Also, the UV rays at any time of the year can make your skin dry.

If you do not usually go out especially during summer season, you can really be at an advantage when it comes to controlling your dry skin. However, we all need vitamin D. If you are exposed for more than 10 minutes under the sun, try using a sunscreen or a wide brimmed hat to protect your skin.

Caring for dry ageing skin

Caring for ageing skin requires attending to the common causes of skin ageing. As our skin ages, skin dryness and UV damage contribute to the development of fine lines and wrinkles, loss of skin volume and density and radiance.

Having an effective skin care routine, especially moisturising and protecting your skin against UVA and UVB light even more important. In addition, ageing skin often needs deep skin hydration to lessen the appearance of and much more prevent the development of further wrinkles.
