- Uneven texture
- Fine horizontal lines, caused by dehydration
Can you relate to any of these?
Then chances are, you will have purchased quite a few moisturisers to combat your dry skin woes.
You may of found that a moisturiser rich in nourishing botanical oils, is not enough to treat your really dry skin.
Whilst these ingredients are beneficial in lovely moisturising ingredients, your skin may also be dehydrated.
If that’s the case, your skin requires humectants to give you the clear skin difference, which help slow down evaporation in the tissues, which is referred to as trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL),
Instead what your dry skin requires, is a well thought out formula that is packed full of a range of valuable ingredients, restoring your dull, dry skin back to a healthy glow.
INGREDIENTS FOR A DRY SKIN
There are a numerous ingredients to choose from:
Peptides: These are proteins that communicate with our cells, making them behave in certain way.
They help to produce collagen and thicken the skins structure, making them important ingredients for dry skin conditions.
Rose hip seed oil: There are many oils that are perfect for a dry skin, but rose hip seed oil holds some very valuable properties, that will help to repair dry skin conditions, returning it to a youthful, vibrant glow.
Jojoba oil: This is a valuable plant oil that will help repair dry skin, that is similar in structure to our skins own natural oil.
Skin identical ingredients: Your skin is made up of three specific ingredients; ceramides, cholesterol and fatty acids, these are substances that are found between our skins cells and help repair the barrier function, without which skin becomes out of balance.
So it makes sense that any good skincare company will include some if not all of these ingredients into their formulas for a dry skin.
